Barbara Beard, IT Practice Leader of Carlyle Conlan
I began my career in business development and recruiting in IT over 20 years ago in Atlanta – relocated back to the area 2 1⁄2 years ago. I’ve covered multiple industries, including recruiting for both contract and direct hire resources. The professional services aspect of the business fits my personality best, as I enjoy the contact with career-minded individuals that strive to advance to the next level of their career paths. The contacts that I’ve made and relationships I’ve developed throughout the years has kept me interested in assisting people to continue in moving forward with their goals.
