Meet Ian Millar: RecruitLoop Recruiter In Destin, Florida

by Paul Slezak
Recruiter Spotlight - 3 years ago

Whenever we put a RecruitLoop recruiter (a Looper!) under the Recruiter Spotlight, I typically try to incorporate some interesting (or perhaps somewhat trivial) tips about the city they’re from. But it wasn’t quite so easy when it came to this post.

Why? Because this particular recruiter has lived in Denver, Colorado Springs, Oahu, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco and Irvine before working in Boston and now landing in Destin, Florida.

For those who may not be familiar with Destin, it’s a city in northwest Florida, in the area known as the Panhandle. It’s known for its Gulf of Mexico beaches and many golf courses (thank you Google!).

How long will he stick around in Florida? He may not even be sure! After all, Ian Millar is, in his own words, “a nationwide kind of guy“. Cue the ZZ-Top music please!
