What’s the most exciting part of your job? The most exciting part of my job is getting the chance to help change a candidate’s life while helping to improve a clients’ business at the same time.
What’s one question every candidate should ask during a job interview? I think candidates always want to know about the timeframe and next steps. It is acceptable to ask this question of the hiring manager after the interview: “When is the hiring team looking to make a decision on either next steps or extending an offer?”
What energizes you outside of work? When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family and close friends. I am a boy mom to both a teenager and a toddler, which keeps me extremely busy.
Have you always been a recruiter? I graduated from U of M Dearborn with a Bachelor degree in Corporate Communication and Public Relations in 2005. Shortly after graduation, I started working at Toyota Motor Company in their Midwest PR office, based in Detroit. During my time there, I primarily managed a fleet of over 100 vehicles that I leased out to the various automotive journalists to gain market presence with our brand. I LOVED my job but when the auto industry took a dive in 2008, I was laid off and temporarily went into Event Planning, and then into Property & Casualty insurance sales. In 2011, I started working in educational recruitment, and then made the move into talent acquisition for engineering clients. and eventually Professional Services, where I am today.
If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
Teleportation so I can go anywhere in the world at any moment.
