Meet the Women Behind Agency 8 | International Women’s Month

Rebecca Nutt PHR, SHRM-CP is a driven entrepreneur with 15 years of recruiting experience, a loving mom, a wife of 21 years and the President and Founder of Agency 8. Rebecca had an established career in the staffing industry, however as her career progressed she was torn between taking more responsibility at work or taking care of her special needs child. Rebecca experienced the dilemma many modern professionals experience: Do I further my career or take care of my children? After much deliberation, Rebecca discovered that she can do both by creating her own Staffing Agency, Agency 8.   

As Rebecca started her business, she reflected on what was missing in the staffing industry and saw that it was people who cared. Rebecca has made it a point in her business to always give back to the community and give appreciation to every single candidate that sends in a resume. Additionally, she has volunteered as a SHRM Lobbyist in Capitol Hill for six years speaking on behalf of SHRM to Texas Senators and Representatives for important HR issues. As an active Volunteer, she has organized “Dress For Success” charity events, UHCL Resumania and mock interviews, Dickinson ISD career days, Habitat for Humanity “All Women Build” event and she is an avid supporter of United Cerebral Palsy/Easter Seals. Every recruiter at Agency 8 has the same passion and drive as Rebecca, so every candidate and client is in good hands. All of us at Agency 8 love our jobs; learn more about us!

I love being able to help Candidates during a time of need and that doesn’t always mean being able to find the right job for a candidate. Sometimes Candidate’s simply need a positive word of encouragement, someone who will listen, or advice on their resume.

Women do not have to choose between their family and their career, they can do both. You can balance being a family woman and businesswoman despite past challenges. This International Women’s Month, we want to recognize every single woman, whether they are running a company or running a household, and everything in between. Every single one of us is strong and capable of accomplishing anything they want. We are so grateful for all the women that make up Agency 8, and everyone else who helped us along the way. Happy International Women’s Month!
