Meet Mark: Senior Microsoft Technologies Development Consultant

Posted by Oxford Global Resources on Aug 16, 2019 9:30:00 AM

Meet Mark: Mark is a standout consultant who has been working with Oxford for 12 years. His expertise is primarily in Microsoft development technologies such as .Net and SQL Server DBA, and he also has experience with JavaScript web development and mobile app development. In 2005, Mark connected with his original Oxford recruiter, Amy, when Oxford’s Cleveland office was staffed by only a few individuals. Although he wasn’t interested in consulting at the time, Amy continued to check in every six months to keep in contact. Eventually, an opportunity arose with an Oxford client Mark had previously worked for as an employee. The client was attempting to reach him and in discussion with Amy, his name came up. Amy got in contact with Mark, and he took a week's vacation from his full-time position to assist the client. From then on, he continued to develop his career in consulting.

Meet Lisa: Global Organizational Change Management Training Consultant

Posted by Oxford Global Resources on Aug 1, 2019 2:45:00 PM

Meet Lisa: Lisa has spent 20 years focused on what she calls the “human side of technical implementations” in regards to her role as an Organizational Change Management Training and Communication Manager on SAP Projects. She began her career in consulting when she took a temp job at a small consulting company and started reading various SAP books to educate herself. As time went on, Lisa began building relationships with consultants, calling them to speak about their availability and interest in various job placements. Through speaking with them, she learned quite a bit about the field, and when a company reached out to her to set up a training program, she leaped at the chance to try her hand at being a consultant. She went independent in 2004 and has been consulting ever since.

Meet Alison: Laboratory Information Systems Consultant

Posted by Oxford Global Resources on Jul 26, 2019 9:00:00 AM

Meet Alison: Alison began working for Oxford about a year ago, when she was introduced to her Oxford recruiter Josh by a former colleague. She was originally working with another consulting firm, but once her placement ended, that firm would not actively look for future assignments on her behalf. Therefore, she decided to move on to a new opportunity with a new staffing company. When Josh reached out to Alison, she said he really set her at ease. “It was his assurances that they would help me with getting further education, which I knew I was going to need [that really cemented my choice to work with Oxford],” she said. Previous consulting firms had promised further education and didn’t deliver. Alison wasn’t ready to retire, and she knows that keeping herself on the cutting edge of technology is crucial. Josh jumped right in on the certification process for EpicTM — and now Alison knows she can go to him for whatever she may need in the future.
