After holding a strategic position within a human resources consulting firm in Montreal, he joined the Montreal office of Adoc Talent Management. He's involved in business development, account and project management as well as headhunting missions.
Amanda Velazquez-Salazar, PhD.
Amanda holds a Ph.D. in electrical engineering on the under-voltage characterization of dielectrics through the innovation of the (F)LIMM method at the University Toulouse 3 - Paul Sabatier, France. She has expertise in dielectric characterization by space charge and partial discharge measurements, applied to the improvement of electrical components, acquired during her postdoctoral project at ÉTS. Thanks to her second postdoctoral project at CERIEC, she addressed contemporary issues that researchers, civil society, entrepreneurs and government agencies face when they wish to integrate different strategies into circular economy to reduce the impact of human activities on the environment as soon as possible. Thus, based on her post-doctoral experiences, she understands the difficulties that PhD graduates may face in integrating into other sectors outside of academia. Thus, wishing to contribute to making this transition more fluid for companies and candidates, she joined Adoc Talent Management in January 2023. She works there as a recruitment consultant.
From his attraction to cultural differences, Elias completed a degree in applied foreign languages (English, German and Japanese). This gave him the opportunity to do an academic exchange in Japan. Then, he decided to pursue a master's degree in applied foreign languages and international affairs, which is how he discovered an appetite for human resources. Eager for more and more challenging and human experiences, he chose to join the Adoc Talent Management office in Montreal as a recruitment consultant.
Marine is in her last year of a Master's degree at Kedge Business School. In perpetual search of human and international adventure, she decided to join Adoc Talent Management in Montreal for her end-of-studies internship. With her good interpersonal skills, she wanted to put them to good use for our clients and candidates by joining the recruitment team.
