You were recently promoted from Account Coordinator to Recruiter – congrats! Tell us a little bit more about this transition.
The Account Coordinator role has always been in the background of the recruiting process. This made for a really easy transition because I knew exactly what to expect. Starting in an Account Coordinator role also allowed by to create relationships early on. So after the promotion, it was easy to build off of that!
What made you decide to get into recruiting?
I came from the banking world and just got to a point in my career where I knew I wanted something different. Lucky for me, JSG was hiring! I knew right off the bat that I would like that every day was different, so you never know what to expect.
What do you enjoy most about being a recruiter?
As I mentioned before, it’s always different. Throughout the years, I’ve learned a lot about various positions and industries. I really enjoy learning more in-depth about what different people do. I’ve found that every moment is a teaching opportunity. I’m always learning how to help companies grow, expand my business, how to be a better communicator, etc.
What recruiting trends have you noticed throughout the market lately?
One of the trends that we’re seeing lately is that companies seem to be leaning toward offering more contract-to-hire opportunities. It’s been cool to learn about the benefit that offers clients, from being able to “try before you buy,” flexible hiring options, and more.
What do you like to do outside of work?
Outside of work, I am definitely a hands-on person – I do a lot of woodwork outside work like landscaping. I also enjoy a great game of golf!
