I am on the A+F Contract Division. I started as a Senior Recruiter in October 2019 and was promoted to the Recruiting Manager in October 2021. I manage a recruiting desk and also two Junior Recruiters. My day to day consists of talking to candidates, making the match between candidates + job openings, setting up interviews and hopefully helping the candidate find their next job! I also assist the two Junior Recruiters with their desk and any questions/issues that might pop up.
What do you love most about the job?
I love how every day is different!
What are the biggest challenges in your job?
There are a ton of ups and downs in recruiting! The downs can be overwhelming sometimes and it’s a challenge to not let it get to you.
What accomplishment are you most proud of?
I am proud that I trained the two Junior Recruiters with no recruiting experience and now they manage their own desk and love what they do!
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever gotten?
Do not let the small stuff get to you and never take your foot off the pedal! There are a lot of ups and downs in recruiting, and you should just keep moving!
What are some of the standout factors you’re looking for when you match candidates with clients?
Personality/culture fit! I truly believe anyone can learn a job/new responsibilities if they are a good match for the company and enjoy working with their co-workers and manager.
Do you stay in touch with your previous placements?
Yes – absolutely!
What do you like to do for fun outside of work?
I like to run on the Schuylkill River Trail, do yoga/barre class, hangout with friends, and try new restaurants in Philadelphia.
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?
I want to go to Thailand badly! Pad Thai is my favorite food 🙂 I also want to get out of my comfort zone and experience something new!
