Happy birthday Bituin!
Happy b-day Nora!
Congratulations Anthony and Norman!
Join us in congratulating two of our Direct Hire team members Anthony Perez and Norman Biado on their promotions to Senior Direct Hire Recruiter!
Anthony has proven to be a natural at recruiting and became our top producer company wide last year with less than one year of recruiting experience. He brings a confident, consultative approach with his clients and candidates which makes for quick, high quality placements. He also has stepped up in terms of mentoring newer team members, facilitating team discussions and strategy meetings and helping everyone on the team succeed! In addition, Anthony brings a ton of fun to the workday and he is a joy to work with. Anthony did an amazing job last year and we are expecting him to reach even higher heights in 2018!
Norm joined the original Dream Weaver team in January of 2016 and set a record by bringing in his first job order on his third outbound phone call, day one on the job. The job was a Project Manager in SF which he promptly filled. In Norm’s most successful client relationship he has cemented himself as an extension of their HR team, ready to place candidates on some of their toughest jobs. Norm also steps up to provide training and mentorship to the team! Norm has increased his production each year and we are looking forward to another great year of billing in 2018!
Thank you to Anthony and Norm for all you do!

January Direct Hire Production Trophy
Congratulations to Anthony for winning the Direct Hire Top Production Trophy for January 2017 !!!
What is the story behind the trophy?
“This goes way back probably 15-20 years. We used to pouch it to the recruiter that had the highest production for the month and they would hold it until they were beat by another recruiter. Torrance held it the longest. We have had top producers in this branch since we opened our office. However, there was a recruiter up north that would sometimes snag it from us. J It has sat here for a long time but I remember how much fun it was to pass the baton! The trophy would sit in the branch at the front of the office so everyone could see it.” – Janet Zitron

Relationships and the Wollborg Michelson history
On January 2, 1973, Wollborg Michelson opened its first office in San Francisco at 12o Montgomery Street, Suite 2460, The Equitable Building. It was a small office with a few employees. Virginia Wollborg was working on a desk placing mostly “Executive Secretaries” and Bernice Michelson was in charge of writing the ads and ordering supplies. At the time a top salary for an “Executive Secretary” was $9,000 per year and they almost always took shorthand. There were no computers, fax machines, voice mail, or even push button phones. There were lots of binders where you kept your records and bottles of white-out when you needed to make corrections. All this and Wollborg Michelson was a smashing success.
Across the hall was a start up company called “Charles Schwab” with a whopping 3-4 employees. Wollborg Michelson of course was there to place some of its first team members. As time went on, we expanded and opened our second branch in San Rafael, Marin County. After a number of years and when we had become a seasoned member of the community, we got a call from a start up company to supply 5 people to help stuff boxes with a new software. They had taken over what was an old BMW auto sales building. Who ever thought at the time that Microsoft would grow to be one of the largest companies in the world.
Wollborg Michelson is proud to be part of the growth of the Bay Area. It is amazing to see and to assist in the growth of so many extraordinary companies.
We may be much larger than we were in 1973, but the truth is nothing has really changed at W/M. We still place one candidate at a time and still build relationships with one client at a time. We still have our headquarters in San Francisco.
So you see nothing has really changed. Except that Charles Schwab has more than 3 or 4 employees and Microsoft isn’t a start up.
