You were promoted to Recruiting Team Lead almost a year ago – Congratulations! Tell us a little bit about that transition.
I started working with JSG almost 3 years ago as a Technical Recruiter. Once I picked it up, I really fell in love! I’ve found with recruiting that you get what you put in, which is great for my competitive personality. When my manager eventually left, I stepped in to help with training. I was able to fill in some of the management duties and quickly learned more of the Operations side of recruiting such as working with our 3rd party vendors. Since then, our team has grown by 2 additional people. We’re now up to 8 now, including myself, and I hope to continue growing!
What do you like most about being in recruiting?
I love the competitive aspect of recruiting. I played sports throughout my past, so it has always been in my nature. Helping people find their dream job and grow their careers is also something I love!
What are your goals for your team for the rest of 2019?
My overall goals are just to continue to grow our office and the people on our team into their careers at JSG. I want to help everyone perform better and pick the right positions that they’re suited to fill.
What do you specialize in?
Our team specializes primarily in engineering and technical-driven positions. We are currently in the midst of the busy season for our industry. With the candidate-driven job market, there are now 3 jobs for every person looking for a new position. We always try to add value by helping find those people and educate our clients about how to be competitive in this market.
What do you like doing outside of work?
Of course I love to hangout with family and friends! I also love weather – so I’m constantly tracking storms and weather in our local area.
