Julie has helped us to raise the level of candidates we interview through her professionalism and expertise. Her screening and first interviews save our hiring managers time and allows them to focus on the most qualified candidates. Julie is always there and able to give advice and answer questions our hiring managers have through the whole process. I would highly recommend her services.

Our organization worked with HR Hotline Associates to help us with our hiring process. They screened applicants, conducted phone interviews, and made recommendations on which applicants we should invite for in-person interviews. Their services really helped streamline the process and provided much-needed support to our hiring managers. In addition, I personally attended [compensation] trainings hosted by HR Hotline Associates that were among the best I’ve ever attended. I would highly recommend this company for anyone needing talent acquisition services and training.

In my capacity as head of the Human Resources Department for Hubbell Realty Company, I have worked with Julie Caspar on talent acquisition for over 12 years. Initially, in 2008 Julie acted as a consultant on an analysis to determine whether our current recruiting process took too long, responding to a perception voiced by hiring managers. She assisted in documenting the process and developed a summary that identified total time from creation of an employment vacancy to the start date of the new hire and the costs associated with the fulfillment of each vacancy with the overall goal to reduce recruitment time and costs. Julie suggested minor changes to our process, provided tools to help managers evaluate candidates, and helped me develop an interview strategy with hiring managers. With her help I was able to tighten up our current process and demonstrate that not only was our recruiting timeline efficient and cost effective but was nine days less than what had been reported by The Conference Board that year.
Hubbell Realty Company has grown significantly since 2008, and in 2018 Julie played an integral role in the delivery of our “Taking the Reins,” supervisor training series. She assisted our training coordinator with the third module of the training series and facilitated the “Recruitment and Selection Manager Training” workshop, providing managers with an understanding of our recruiting process, the manager’s role as it relates to the candidate experience, selection criteria, interviewing skills, and candidate evaluation and selection. Our supervisor training series has been successful in large part to Julie’s contributions.
I have relied on Julie Caspar’s knowledge and experience regarding talent acquisition in guiding our recruitment strategies over the years. She continues to be a valuable resource, and I would highly recommend her without reservation.
