Technology is reshaping the future of job searches, and Karyn Mullins is at the forefront of the new frontier.
As general manager of Healthcare Staffing Technologies, Mullins is responsible for overseeing diverse operations for the career-website company, which owns sites for jobseekers in the medical-device industry and the sports industry. Healthcare Staffing Technologies is part of Alpharetta-based Jackson Healthcare, the country’s third-largest healthcare staffing company.
“I am fortunate to work for a company that uses technology to really connect people to the right employer so they can find their dream job,” she says.
Mullins’ job is a little different each day: She does everything from creating branding with the marketing department to sorting through technology features with developers. She’s spent her entire career in technology, and she’s proud of the way the field can improve people’s lives – particularly in healthcare.
“Artificial intelligence and machine learning are helping doctors make better, faster diagnoses every day,” she says, “and that means patients get better treatment or better care sooner rather than later.”
Jackson Healthcare has been in Alpharetta since 2000, and working in the city offers plenty of perks, Mullins says. With new amenities like the mixed-use Avalon development and the forthcoming Alpha Loop, a series of multi-use trails, the city is becoming a major draw in the region.
Alpharetta holds lots of appeal to the tech sector in particular. There are now more than 600 technology companies based in the city, which is a good place to recruit more experienced workers who want to put down roots.
“Up here you find people who have moved to this area to really start and raise their families,” Mullins explains, “so it makes Alpharetta a great place to run a business and to live as a community.”
Jackson Healthcare plans to continue expanding its business at its Alpharetta home base, Mullins says. That’s good news for both jobseekers and the healthcare industry: There are 17 companies under the Jackson parent.
“We have great things coming from Jackson Healthcare,” she says, “and we’re really excited to be a part of the future for this community.”
