Richard’s Blog – Sleepless in Seattle!

Talent’s Richard Earl has begun the second part of his trip around the US, this time ending up in Seattle, Washington. Right on the Canadian border Seattle is a beautiful part of the US; Richard took some time to show off his Bagwalkers bag at the Seattle Space Needle.


Seattle is home to a number of major global businesses including Microsoft, Boeing, Starbucks, Nordstrom, Amazon, and Expedia. Many other major tech firms such as Google and Facebook are moving some of their operations here due to the increasing cost of doing business in San Francisco which is about 1200km’s down the coast. For those music fans amongst you, Seattle gave us Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and Sound Garden.


Spending a couple of days getting to know the area,  Richard looked at local  opportunities and caught up with one of Talent’s US advisors who’s overseen a high number of deals in the technology recruitment sector across the whole USA. Great city, beautiful setting and an amazing Space Needle (look it up!).


Richard is off to San Francisco next, stay tuned for more updates.
