We sat down with Mark and asked him the following:
- What is one thing you learned early in your career that has made you successful?
Keep calling and talking to people. Get to know the person and stop trying to just fill a position.
- What is your greatest strength in your role?
With over 15 years of experience working in the same market, I have gotten to really know the people and companies in my territory.
- What can clients and candidates expect from you?
- What makes you different from other recruiters in your industry?
Honesty and ethics. I let candidates know where I’m sending their resume. I also don’t try and talk them into positions that don’t fit what they are looking for.
- Personal interests?
I enjoy coaching and watching my kids’ sports. I’m a passionate sports fan of the Atlanta Braves and Philadelphia Eagles. When I have time, I enjoy smoking delicious BBQ ribs and chicken.
