Meet Your Instructor:

With many years experience recruiting senior level professionals, Mauri Schwartz is a leading figure in the SF Bay Area career management community. She founded Career Insiders to provide companies with talent acquisition and outplacement services as well as executive coaching, enabling organizations to attain professional staffing to achieve business goals by developing recruiting strategies, job definitions, and sourcing, interviewing, and hiring candidates.

Mauri holds an MBA from the University of California Berkeley’s Haas School of Business, and a Math degree from Tulane University in New Orleans where she ate beignets and learned the delightful word “lagniappe.”

We hired the executive recruitment firm Career Insiders to help us achieve our aggressive growth goals, beginning with a new position of VP, Marketing. We had very specific requirements, but Mauri quickly understood what we were looking for and hit a home run! We’re very happy with the results and are looking forward to partnering with Career Insiders for ongoing hiring needs. Gary Potts, CFO, Service Champions.

Mauri is one of that rare breed – a really reliable, top flight technical recruiter. She understands our business and quickly ‘gets’ what you are looking for. In addition, she has an amazing ability to find great people. We have hired quite a few people from her over the last year and been very satisfied. She is completely honest and straight forward to work with, as well as responsive. I can’t recommend her highly enough. Quenby Morrow, VP, Project Manager TPP, Bank of the West (formerly Dolby).
