Working Remotely in the Motorsports Industry

It’s a fresh new year and I’m hearing from an increased number of colleagues—inside and outside of the motorcycle industry—who are interested in making a career move. More than half of them are specifically looking for a virtual work-from-home/office position. I can’t blame them.

Jan has been a great resource for our company to help make some of the best key hires over the last 10 years. She has done an excellent job sourcing everyone from frontline staff members to highly skilled controllers. Anytime we have a position to fill Jan has sent us multiple quality candidates and has had impeccable follow up with both the candidate and us. She is able to manage multiple open postings with ease and help keep us on track. Jan has truly been a key asset for us and our company would not be as successful today without the team members she’s placed with us.

Our dealerships are located in markets with city populations of 100k to 250k and we are located about 250 to 345 miles outside of DFW. Since we started working with Jan, we’ve brought on board three service managers and three or four A- techs. Her people are doing well here and we will call her again when we need to fill the next spot!

I have worked with Jan for almost a decade, and she has been my professional superhero at every turn. Because of her, I have melded a passion for motorcycles and my professional skillset into a career with some of the most notable names in the industry.

From my time with Triumph Motorcycles America, The Progressive International Motorcycle Shows, and now Family Powersports, she has made it possible to determine the next and best move in my career.

Jan has become a trusted confidante and professional mentor. Her knowledge of the sector, hiring practices, and client roster ensures top-quality interview and placement opportunities. Most notably, she has a unique skill in recognizing, nurturing, and positioning talent.

Because of this, I have come to deeply value her perspective and proxy when making life-changing professional decisions. There is no one better than Jan Plessner.

Jan is the most pleasant recruiter you can deal with. She found me an awesome position that has moved my career to a new level. A real-life changing experience!

Working with Jan and ACTION Recruiting has been a life changing experience. Thanks to her, I was vaulted into my next career path away from traditional, administrative roles. With her help early in my career, I’m now working in the powersports industry at a level that I never thought I could achieve.

Several years ago, I learned through Jan about a rare opportunity to lead the startup of a new original content initiative from scratch. The then-young company was RevZilla and because I didn’t know the principals, I was hesitant. It was Jan’s enthusiasm for the opportunity, her faith in my abilities, and my confidence in her industry knowledge that led me to pursue what has turned out to be the most unique, successful, and rewarding role I’ve had in motorcycle media in my career. It wouldn’t have happened without Jan’s guidance, encouragement, and industry insight.

I was lucky enough to connect with Jan Plessner while contemplating a career change. From our very first conversation, her enthusiasm for the powersports industry was contagious. Jan evaluated my existing skill set, recognized my passion for motorcycles and motivation for pursuing a career in the industry, and found an opportunity that was a perfect match. But equally as important, throughout a long, drawn-out application and interview process, she was a tireless advocate, confidant, and friend – always quick to answer questions, seek out information and offer advice gleaned from her many years of industry experience.

Long story, short, I landed the job! And it would not have happened without Jan’s support. For someone pursuing employment in the powersports industry, I can’t imagine working with a better recruiter than Jan Plessner. You only need to look over her industry background and contacts on LinkedIn to see the huge presence she has in the powersports industry. It seems like Jan knows, and is known by, almost everyone. I’ve been extremely fortunate to have her as both an advocate and a friend.
