Being in HR, the Elevated team is no stranger to recruitment. We believe in finding the best fit for both the candidate and our client as opposed to simply filling a role, while using creative strategies to attract potential hires. In fact, we like to think of ourselves as “matchmakers”. But what happens when that translates outside of the professional setting?

Well, I’ll tell you.

For the last while our Leading Lady Michelle has been determined to find me a match as I happen to be the only single team member. I would be a fool to think she would take a traditional approach in doing so. To paint the picture, on my third work anniversary she posted a picture of me on social media. Included was a little blurb congratulating me on the milestone, a cute little tribute on how much I’m valued as a team member, and then….a call to action for all the single fellas out there.

And then I received this message a couple of nights ago:


Was I surprised? Not at all. I was definitely intrigued though. I mean, I had just received a collage of hot men with Michelle offering a PAID night out! So I decided to look into the details a little further. Turns out the Leading Lady was enticing me to attend the Sixth Annual Bachelor Auction – an amazing charity fundraiser in support of Survive & Thrive Cancer programs. Plus this was a chance to snag a date with a handsome bachelor! I’d be a COMPLETE fool to turn this down!

Not only did Michelle and I attend last night, but we absolutely enjoyed every minute of it. Amber Craig of Bamboo Creative Inc. did such an incredible job of organizing the event and the energy among everyone there was so positive. I am extremely grateful to Michelle for suggesting we go (and being my financial sponsor)! I too have benefited from this fundraiser as I have landed a hot date with one of Calgary’s most eligible bachelors (Erik Allen)! Did I mention we placed the highest bid as well? Because, like I said, he’s HOT! Of course I’m sure he has a great personality too…

Needless to say, I’m totally looking forward to spending some QT with this cutie. Stay tuned for updates on my date!
