As the situation with the coronavirus continues to evolve, High Profile continues to take proactive steps to protect our staff, contract employees, and the communities where we live and work.  Our team is here to serve you, so please contact us at 972-991-7900 for assistance with your staffing needs or your job search.

Due to the Dallas Shelter-In-Place Order, the High Profile office is currently closed, with our internal staff working remotely to serve our clients and candidates.  We have also partnered with many of our clients and contract employees to offer and support remote work from home (WFH) options when available and to provide resources and information to those who have been impacted by lost work.

We have compiled a list of links and resources below to help both individuals and employers access information and content from a central page – we hope this helps!  We will update this page as we receive additional information.

Shelter-In-Place Order (Dallas County Order) – Many cities/states are issuing “shelter-in-place” orders which restrict individuals from “non-essential activities”.
