About Nancy Roach, Director, MarketingHire.com
Nancy Roach has played a vital role in MarketingHire.com from day one (well, technically, before day one!). Ms. Roach's insights from her background in Human Resources were critical in the development of MarketingHire.com, ensuring the site would have significant value to HR professionals seeking alternatives to the big general job boards, which tend to be great at churning out high volumes of candidate submissions, but considerably less great when it comes to the percent of highly qualified, high caliber candidates.
