Tell us more about your career as an Aerospace/Aviation Recruiter.
I have been here for over ten years. I started working with JSG’s Senior Vice President, Rich Geil, as an HR Specialist for another recruiting firm. At JSG, I initially came in as a Recruiting Coordinator. I was interested in recruiting and had been around it, so I wanted to jump in and see what I could offer! I have recently dipped my toe into a Sales role, as well. Having to find clients, uncover their needs, and sell our services is a totally different, but exciting world!
What has kept you at JSG for all these years?
The atmosphere. We’re more like a big family. Most of the coworkers we have, we’ve developed a good rapport. We are always here to support one another – we want to see everyone succeed.
How has the industry changed over the past ten years?
It’s been a rollercoaster. I’ve realized that the industry has grown pretty tight. The market is so competitive that it can be challenging to place candidates while employers are focusing on the retention of full-time employees rather than maintaining contractor status. However, it has allowed us to continue growing our relationships with current clients and expanding our services to meet their needs in this job market!
What do you enjoy most about being a recruiter?
I got into recruiting to help people. I enjoy building a relationship with people. It’s great to get to know candidates, what they’re looking for, and help them find that perfect next position. The network that I’ve grown over the years is definitely what has enabled me to be successful. Word of mouth is key in this industry!
What do you like to do in your free time?
I love spending time with my family and traveling. I also love to eat, sing, and volunteer for the church, but in the end, it all comes back to family!
