Phoenix, AZ, January 22, 2018: Media Staffing Network, Inc.™, recently recognized by Forbes Magazine as one of “America’s Top Recruiting Firms of 2017” and a certified Women’s Business Enterprise, is proudly celebrating the firm’s 25th Anniversary. Media Staffing Network Founder & CEO Laurie Kahn built what is today a premier staffing company catering exclusively to Media management, sales, engineering, finance and HR for full-time placement, consulting and career coaching in the Broadcast, Cable, Internet, Digital, New Media, Out of Home and Print industries.
Media Staffing Network’s (MSN) distinctive sourcing platform, the Local Sales Recruitment program (LSR), utilizes a team of marketing and recruitment experts to engage and coach management teams with proven solutions for locating, attracting, hiring and retaining employees. LSR identifies both job seekers and passive candidates in local communities, from inside and out of media, and includes compensation and culture planning, which is crucial for success in hiring today. MSN’S vision, expertise and expansive industry relationships, combined with their passion for effectively identifying and educating professionals, makes them an invaluable resource for any firm’s sourcing, connecting and training needs.
“The past 25 years have taught me the importance of staying on top of trends,” says Laurie Kahn. “Unlike online job boards, we are labor-intensive, hands-on and offer our clients a variety of methods to attract, hire and retain the top talent needed to reach their revenue goals. I am very proud of my team, their accomplishments and the manner in which they continue to meet and exceed our clients’ expectations on a daily basis.”
Media Staffing Network’s story began in 1993. Recognizing a need for placing temporary workers in primarily administrative, traffic and sales positions, Ms. Kahn, already a well-respected media sales professional, created Rep Temps and opened offices in Chicago and New York City. The name was changed to Media Staffing Network in 1998, better reflecting the firm’s shifting focus on long-term placements. Services expanded with the addition of recruitment and training programs to help clients “build their bench” with quality prospective candidates, and to better attract and retain these valued employees. MSN also created a full line of programs aimed at job seekers that included career coaching, resume creation and conducting unique training sessions targeted at recent grads joining the work place, “Dream Job Bootcamp,” and women re-entering the workplace.
Throughout her career, Laurie Kahn has consistently served charitable groups, given back to communities and paid it forward through mentoring. She is an editorial contributor to several media publications and often invited to speak at conferences, colleges and corporate meetings. Laurie has been included in Radio Ink magazine’s annual listing of the Most Influential Women in Radio since 2007 and is an active member, sponsor and mentor for the Mentoring and Inspiring Women in Radio (MIW) Group. Most recently, Laurie served on the Alliance for Women in Media (AWM) board of directors; she was also a member of its precursor, The American Women in Radio & Television (AWRT), serving previously on boards of local AWRT chapters in Chicago and Kansas City. Additionally, Laurie was a board member with the Broadcast Advertisers of Chicago (today named the Media Advertising Club of Chicago) and volunteered on the Columbia College Advisory Board and the Chicago Urban League.
