Birds of a feather

When is 1 greater than 2?

It all makes sense when two of the Philadelphia area’s most-respected staffing agencies join together.

On May 7, 2013, blue plate minds acquired the Shelley Miller Group. Karen Carroll and co-owner Melissa Burke were pleased to invite industry veteran, Shelley Miller to join their team. The blue plate minds partners felt Shelley’s business expertise, networking acumen and professional credibility would meld perfectly with their vision of the future.

On May 3rd this staffing powerhouse will move to a larger space on the second floor of the blue plate minds’ current building in downtown Paoli. “Our suburban location with close proximity to the Paoli train station has truly spoiled us and we just couldn’t imagine giving it up,” says Melissa Burke. Just one block from Route 30, with ample parking, a short walk to the train and room to grow made this move a no-brainer.

blue plate minds is currently celebrating its 14th year in business and well-known for superlative client service — treating each and every client as if they were the only one.  blue plate minds provides a valuable service to the Advertising, Marketing and Public Relations professional community by matching professional talent (top 5%) with awesome opportunities in the Philadelphia region.

The newly expanded blue plate minds is ready to assist you with your next search — full-time, freelance or direct to hire placement.
