K.A. Recruiting began as a conversation over a cup of coffee in 2008 between Alisha Dynan and K.C. Carpenter. After years of working together, they had developed a similar vision and approach to recruiting.
Both had fathers who were entrepreneurs, and they wanted to create a company and culture that stood by its values and could better serve healthcare clients and candidates. Alisha and K.C. recognized a need for medical and healthcare recruiting services in the clinical healthcare space. Nurse and medical technologist shortages across the country needed more than another medical temp agency.
The shortage of healthcare professionals required a company with the expertise and industry knowledge to recruit in-demand professionals for full-time direct hire vacancies – medical laboratory scientists, respiratory therapists, surgical technologists, registered nurses, advanced practice providers, and more. With more baby boomers retiring every year, the need for healthcare professionals was only growing.
In September of 2008, K.A. Recruiting was born. The company began in a small office space with just the two of them – and no clients. The partners started by marketing their services to healthcare facilities needing laboratory professionals.
K.A. has since grown to become a national leader in healthcare recruiting. Today, K.A. Recruiting has hundreds of loyal clients and an extensive network of qualified talent. While the company has grown over the years and expanded its services, one thing has remained constant – a commitment to building a company that serves as an example of loyalty, integrity, and dependability within the healthcare industry.
Over the years, K.A. has been able to expand its permanent recruiting services nationwide beyond just laboratory professionals to assist clients with all their clinical healthcare recruiting needs. From their beginning as a team of two, they have expanded to become a group of highly specialized healthcare recruiters dedicated to helping hundreds of clients across the country fill their clinical healthcare professional needs.
By prioritizing our values, we develop LONG-TERM PARTNERSHIPS with our candidates, clients, and employees!
