  • How long have you been with firstPRO? 
    • I have been with firstPRO for 2 years and a month.
  • What do you do? What’s your day-to-day like? 
    • I am a Technical Recruiter. I spend my days reviewing job applicants and searching the job boards to match IT candidates with specific needs that our clients have.

  • What are the biggest challenges in your job? 
    • The biggest challenge about my job is navigating people, which is also a main part of my job. Being able to get someone a job is a great feeling, but on the flip side if I’m not able to get someone a job, communication with them is very challenging.
  • What accomplishment are you most proud of?  
    • The biggest accomplishment I am proud of has been the placements I have made that have helped veterans of the United States Military either start or advance their IT careers.
  • What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever gotten?   
    • You have to ride the eps and flows of this job. The days that are harder just make the wins and good times even better.
  • What are some of the standout factors you’re looking for when you match candidates with clients? 
    • Technical abilities are always important, but I believe the culture fit is probably the most important thing.
  • Do you stay in touch with your previous placements?   
    • I think LinkedIn has become a great tool for keeping in touch with previous placements. It is great for having a quick catch-up chat, recognizing career accomplishments, or even just wishing them a happy birthday.
  • What do you like to do for fun outside of work?  
    • I am a 4 for 4 guys. I like to spend as much time as I can down at the stadiums cheering on the Eagles, Phillies, Sixers, and Flyers.
  • If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?  
    • I would love to visit Ireland.
