When you meet Tina Mughal, you’re immediately lured in by her high energy, contagious smile and British accent. An entrepreneur at heart, she always dreamt of one day personally making an impact on the ever-changing and dynamic recruitment industry. Today, after 25 years in the field, she oversees Mughal & Associates, one of Miami’s most successful global placement agencies that’s working to match mid–high level opportunities to job seekers who are looking for a career, not just a job. “I feel extremely optimistic about the South Florida job market,” she says. “Our main areas of growth for job placements have been within the technology, engineering, accounting and finance fields.”
Having lived in Miami for 18 years, she finds that the city is not only the best place in the world to call home, but also the perfect hub to establish business in the U.S. and serve as a gateway to LATAM & The Caribbean. “There was no other place in the world where I wanted to start our business,” she says. “It’s incredible being able to make an impact on the South Florida economy and workforce.” As a high-growth company, Mughal and her team are focusing on growing internal recruiting operations organically and externally, while looking to replicate offices in other major cities.
Although her work schedule may be more intense than most, when she’s not helping candidates and clients connect or building her firm and services, she loves to travel internationally and enjoys cooking her favorite Indian dishes. She also treasures a fun day spent at the beach or dining with family and friends around town. It’s about balance and living life to the fullest — both at home and at work.
So what’s on the horizon for her company? Well, there’s plenty, she reports. “We’re very proud to be hosting a few community events in the area,” she says, mentioning that a standout event her firm is particularly proud of is a partnership with Brit Week to host a special gala dinner. “Our event will allow companies from the UK and South Florida to come together and further strengthen business relations”;
