New year, new you? How about a new career opportunity? At the Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas (FHLB Dallas), we are always looking for talented individuals to join our small, but mighty team. The end of the year is often a time of reflection on the year we have just experienced. Many of us are taking stock of what worked and what didn’t and how we want to grow in the new year.
“People are always growing and changing, so it’s natural their career paths may mirror that,” said Renae Virata, lead account executive at Creative Circle in Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas. “A lot of candidates we work with are ready to move up in their field and there just may be no opportunity for them at their current companies. We’ve seen candidates who build up certain skill sets over time or take an interest in certain technologies on the side and realize they are ready to move into something completely new.”
