I’m the industrial recruiter for Connections Personnel, where I get to have the privilege of placing people where they truly belong. My career had always revolved around helping others; but now, I get to see it first hand.


Chris Lu

After being disillusioned by the field of Public Relations, where I started my career, I fell into the world of staffing; where I discovered my true calling. I’ve been in staffing for about 10 years, where I’ve had my hands in almost every vector you can think of. I love the challenge of finding the right place for every person; but most importantly, keeping the human element in staffing.

I started here in 1995 and started as the receptionist and worked my way up to Recruiting Manager.  I handle temporary, temp to hire and direct hires in all different fields ranging from warehouse workers to engineers.  The best part of my job is being able to place people into spots that I know they will succeed in and be able to grow.
