I do what I love, and I love what I do! Amanda Dear is the author of a recruitment and job-search series. It was during the summer of 1998 that a young lady from the shire joined the wonderful world of recruitment. She quickly found a niche within the toy sector and has not looked back! Constant achievement was rewarded with five promotions in six years, and Amanda was a partner at the company for the following five years. Freedom beckoned and she branched out on her own.
