Network inspired.

Talent driven.

Our Expertise

Each day we at MySource Consulting are thrilled for the opportunity to find anomalies.  We source candidates who are buried deep in the caverns of this company or that, completely unaware that there’s an opportunity that’s just right for them. We challenge ourselves to create synergistic relationships between our clients and our network of consultants to fulfil that perfect connection for a once-[or twice]-in-a-life opportunity.

Who wouldn’t be excited about finding that needle in a haystack that gets to ‘play’ in a role that they love… with one of the best companies in the Pacific Northwest?

Our Mission

The MySource mission is to help people find people.  Custom ‘searches’ can be find that one person or team that’s a perfect fit.

Retained searches, anonymous or high profile roles, sensitive and specialty roles or projects are our primary focus.  Our boutique, customized and single-minded, bird-dog style provides a targeted approach to your most important roles and projects.

We’re like a professional match-maker for careers and jobs.

Our highly-coveted reputation of the utmost integrity throughout our referral-based network enhances our search efforts, resulting in the highest caliber talent available. Thoroughly vetted and skillfully matched beyond just the technical to achieve long-term objectives, team fit, corporate culture and career goals.

Our Business Model

MySource has built a solid reputation through contract, contract-to-hire and full time IT staffing through many years of high-integrity business. Our network is wide and strong. As a result, MySource is perfectly aligned to be a valued source for identifying all types of Talent, Executive Searches and Retained Search. We provide a refreshing, boutique-style search approach to diligently research, gather data and build relationships with the much sought-after people that our clients are looking for — ‘A’ players, those who are at the top of their skill level or profession and those ‘one-in-a-million’ professionals that are uniquely qualified to accomplish that one certain objective or project delivery item.

The staffing industry continues to evolve. The new paradigm demands a more specialty, boutique approach. The ability of self-marketing through LinkedIn, Facebook and other social platforms has changed the face of recruiting forever. Mid-to-Senior level roles have become just as critical as Subject Matter Expert roles to get the right people. It’s simply no longer economical to throw a vital role onto a job board and just see what happens. The winners in the talent contest are those who build solid relationships and partnerships over time and both parties have skin in the game. We take a deeper dive — beyond the resume. Our objective is to take a holistic approach to find that beautiful convergence of both the personality and the skill. We take the time to look for that far-and-few-between talent that, who may not have a resume with the right information, or possess the perfect mix of this or that but no one takes the time to fully vet them.

Our model assures a quality-centric, referral-driven, personalized approach to an industry which has become diluted over time. The slow move away from high standards in the staffing industry has literally lit a fire under us. It is imperative that this industry take a breath and lean more toward quality and specialization. Our approach is far from new. In fact, it’s deeply rooted in the concept of personalized care — QUALITY over quantity. Understanding the whole person with depth and a collaborative approach has been lost through the advent of self-promotion. MySource has our eye on the long-term success of the candidate AND the company. The founder’s strong background in training assures that the model stays true to its objective – to do right by both candidates and clients with quality vetting practices and in-depth understanding. We offer basic, highly standardized principals that lead the way. Our success is found through our dedication to a referral-driven, high-integrity approach.

MySource carefully partners with our candidates and our clients. We take care to work with only the best of the best companies and talent. Experienced professionals don’t desire just “a job”—they want to add value, make a difference and lead the way. These are the type of people we work with, and the companies that want those types – the innovators, the idea generators, the doers, THE make-things-happen’ers.

We work with the best, highest integrity and most innovative companies as a trusted partner. In order to generate successful outcomes through performance, we carefully place our candidates in companies that appreciate and value great talent and equal partnerships with their vendors. We don’t just “fill a chair”—we work with both sides to bring extraordinary people to roles that were established just for their experience and backgrounds –-at least, that’s how it feels. Our clients want candidates who want to accomplish extraordinary things. People who bring companies to a new level through their team work, vision because of the ‘whole’ person that they are — not just their experience.

We’re not just recruiters – we are your personalized search, source and placement partners.

Our Story

Teena has an unparalleled entrepreneurial spirit and love of business. Through her varied professional roles, she has always been acutely aware of changing tides and the need to uphold a certain level of integrity and professionalism in business, and specifically in certain industries.  She has interviewed thousands of people throughout her career and has witnessed an incredible shift in what people view as important in their work – whether they are running a company, a team or working on a team.  This is why it’s important for her to do this work.  Innovated concepts must mirror the needs of those people who are industry leaders.  Her ability to intuit transformations before they actually arrive in full manifestation is a gift.  Hence, the move toward a more individualized way to identify top talent, and to really talk to people on a deeper level to understand who they are is key to success in this new paradigm.  We must make sure there is truly an overall fit of philosophy, experience, culture, and vision to make a successful match.  Those companies offering flex time/hours are going to be leading the way in the future – they will be the companies that people are lining up at the door to work with.  When a company understands their people, and provides what’s important to them —  a way of life, an opportunity to actually do what they love and bring value every day, AND be appreciated… well, those are the companies that will lead the way into a more successful tomorrow.

After more than 20 years in staffing, HR and marketing, and as a single parent, Teena knows how she can make an impact on the world. She has a dream of providing an environment where people can make a living on their own terms in order to find the balance necessary to be valued both at work and home.

The wheels are now in motion—Teena is leading a trend toward more creative work environments designed to inspire excellence. She believes employees will bring tremendous value and loyalty to their employers when they are treated as responsible and accountable adults. They will be respected for their high quality work, and for doing their daily best to make their company, team or project successful. The idea of “failure’s not an option” is not just a saying, but is the foundation on which every decision is made here at MySource.

MySource Consulting is the brain child—the rough structure—to help highly skilled talent get the jobs they love in the companies they respect; likewise, MySource strives to make certain companies are succeeding in their goals because they have the right people for the right jobs. This approach goes far beyond technical skills. Personality styles and values are major contributors to ensure everyone is fully committed to the same business vision.

If more employers took the time necessary to retain MySource Consulting, turnover would be far less of an issue, and businesses would stabilize and thrive. Happy, healthy employees are more focused on assuring employers are meeting their objectives, which leads to success. It is the right way to build a responsible business—for all parties involved—the job seekers and the employers. It is Teena’s vision that MySource Consulting, its staff and consultants will always provide the very best people in our focus areas and continue to build a stellar reputation.

Your Journey As A Recruiter

The staffing and recruitment industry is changing rapidly – we have an opportunity to assure it changes for the better.  Staffing firms and recruiters must learn to move with the times – get ahead of the wave,  in order to stay relevant.  With the onslaught of online recruitment tools and boards, social networking and self-marketing, where’s the need for a reliable recruiter?  It’s right where it’s always been.  And SPECIALIZATION is the key.  Anyone who has been in staffing for a number of years has watched the pendulum move in huge contrasts from outsourced recruitment to in-house recruiting, from offshore projects, back to in-house, then back and forth again.  These are just a few of the swings that we’ve seen over the past 25 years.  The fact is, the best way to find good people is through good recruiting.  It’s all about people.  If you don’t have a good recruiter who looks at the whole picture – the quality of the candidate, understands their industry and gets to know their client, then how can the right match truly happen?  It really can’t.  You can make a guess, or work the odds, or shift the main responsibility onto the client, but recruiters should be sending highly qualified candidates so the client only has to dig into the deep, technical piece of the pie. All recruiters can’t be deeply technical when their ‘day job’ is recruitment, but if you’re from that industry you have a lot more to offer.

Teena Christel has nearly 25 years in the Staffing industry and is passionate about moving the industry’s reputation into a more respectable ‘art’ that is based upon helping people get the right role, and for companies to have a reliable source/partner from which to obtain quality candidates.

Our Consultants

Our Boutique Approach

Let’s go beyond job descriptions.

We are acutely aware that you are much more than your resume. Building long-term relationships and representing our talent goes beyond the basic technical skill set match. MySource prides themselves on aligning to our boutique-based business model. This means taking time to get to know each and every candidate on a holistic level. Overall knowledge of each person we work with is the cornerstone to making the right match. Company culture, long-term career goals, personality aspects, work & life balance, location, passions, and strengths all play a role in the critical decision-making process of each opportunity.  This is not just for our talent either. We soak a whole lot of energy into understanding the ‘whole’ company and team – culture, group leadership, long-term objectives, company goals, team dynamics and management style before entering into a partnership. Any recruiter can simply do a key-word search for candidates with certain skills. We work with candidates over time to assure there’s a healthy, happy, and challenging background before making a mutual connection –  then our clients and candidates are both happy. We don’t just place people in jobs, we make career moves.  We call that a win/win/win.

I met Cathy when her company, MySource Consulting, participated in the first semi-annual Puget Sound Chapter of PMI Trade Show. Since that time, her company has been an ardent supporter and role modeling an excellent placement firm. I’ve also been placed by Cathy’s company in a firm and seen the impressive customer service that is provided to both the client and to the contracted resources. She is excellent at identifying strengths and opportunities and matching up needs with talent. Her written and verbal communication skills are impeccable. I enjoy working with Cathy and will continue to do so.”
