An old pair of slippers; a favorite chair; a warm blanket on a cold night. Comfortable. After a while your job can begin to feel this way as well. You know the people, the procedures & policies, the quickest route to work, the best coffee place, etc… You’re settled, in a groove. Then out of nowhere an interesting job opportunity appears. Feelings of excitement rush in, new possibilities (maybe more money) – all of sudden the world is at your feet.

But her passion for connecting the dots, working with incredible people on both ends of the spectrum, and weaving the emotional and professional elements together sustains her drive for success on all levels.

Bloomberg News recently reported there are more than three million skilled jobs unfilled in the U.S.
Kim First, head of a specialty search firm, concurs and says that regrettably she must now turn to foreign sources to meet her clients needs. She is attending more and more meetings overseas to find qualified scientists.
Kim is CEO of one of a successful search firm charged with finding candidates with very specific training and skills. Kim’s firm, The Agency Worldwide (http://theagencyworldwide.com) serves pharmaceutical companies, particularly those in Life Sciences, that seek to find cures and solve challenges facing world health.
Kim says the needs of her clients have become ever more specific (and harder to fulfill) ever since the mapping of the human genome and the explosion of biogicals to treat life threatening dieseases.
She adds: “There has been an explosion in ‘personalized medicine’ requiring scientists and doctors with even more refined skills. It’s no longer enough for pharmaceutical companies to create ‘one size fits all drugs and take them to market’.
