    Be persistent. Follow through.
  • What is your greatest strength in your role?
    Taking the time to get to know my candidates and hiring authorities, making it a conversation and not a sales pitch, finding something in common to build trust and a relationship, and tailoring searches based on skills, abilities, and cultural fit to create success.
  • What can clients and candidates expect from you?
    Asking the pertinent questions to give me the tools to find the right fit.
  • What makes you different from other recruiters in your industry?

  • Share a successful placement story.
