Overview Industry Overview:

From the pager and the car phone to the cell phone and the internet to augmented reality and smart watches, the telecommunications industry has seen major shifts in just the last couple of decades. Adding to the challenge of this field is the fact that it is so broad, encompassing everything from finance, price deflation, and cyber security to transmission capacity, integrated circuits, and a flood of new products hitting the market daily. This variability has led to numerous twists and turns as the industry seeks to establish more effective business models, channel technology effectively, and, of course, meet consumers’ demands.

Looking to the future, the telecommunication industry continues to focus on growth. As the Internet of Things expands, so must telecom capabilities – with US consumers alone checking their devices an aggregate of almost 10 billion times a day, and increased data from smart home and city devices, data volumes are exploding. Success depends on technical superiority and quality of service; these qualities must be closely monitored, as complacency can result in what was once an advantage quickly falling behind the growth curve.

App Common Applications:

The telecommunications industry is changing at an ever increasing rate due to the rapid development and deployment of new technologies. The industry continues its dynamic expansion across the globe, and competition for high-quality talent with specialized experience is the new standard.

On behalf of myself and the other two members of Thomas Swan’s team charged with finding our new President of Swan Chemical Inc., I would like to say thank you for Ropella’s excellent planning and execution of the search which met all of our needs.  We ended up with the optimum person in this position. Your disciplined search system and superior personnel definitely worked well, even shortly after a devastating hurricane hit the Gulf Coast!

I was impressed with Ropella’s attention to detail in ascertaining our needs, developing the optimum candidate profile and preparing the skills survey, which helped in getting an understanding of candidates beyond the “all good news” that is in resumes. The psychological profiling and innovative reference checking also cut out the positive bias in how these aspects are presented by candidates. The compensation spreadsheet was useful in looking at entire compensation picture from the point of view of the finalists.
