A Recruiting Coordinator focuses on facilitating the flow of candidates through the recruitment process and is an integral part of the recruiting team. This week, meet our Recruiting Coordinator, Megan.
Have you always been a Recruiting Coordinator?
No, I joined OpTech in March 2019 as a Recruiting Coordinator, but I have had quite a few experiences before that. I graduated from Ferris State University with a degree in Health Care Systems Administration with a minor in Human Resources in 2016. Post graduation, I have been employed as a Substitute Teacher for grades K-12, a Volunteer Coordinator at Karmanos Cancer Institute, and a Sales Support Rep at McKesson.
What do you do in your free time?
I enjoy traveling, spending time with my family, friends, and my dog (aka: my best friend), Cruze. At the start of the pandemic, I began my new favorite hobby of baking macarons, and I plan to continue teaching myself how to perfect this difficult craft!
If you could have one superpower, what would it be?
I would say teleportation, being able to immediately be anywhere would be so great! It would make traveling to visit family and friends, or going on vacation so much easier.
What advice would you give to a young professional that just graduated from college?
My advice is to try everything. Although I feel that my career is truly just beginning, I have had so many wonderful experiences since graduating that have helped me grow in my existing career. Whether you are volunteering or joining networking groups, it is essential to your career growth. Never stop learning and never stop seeking new experiences.
What do you love most about your job?
Although I am behind the scenes with getting candidates their new positions, I still play a role in that and it’s great knowing that we, as a company, are making positive impacts in people’s lives. Regardless of what I am doing, I am always assisting someone in some way and I enjoy that part of my job as well.
