My Recruiting Experience

I have collaborated with a diverse range of companies on recruiting people that are the pulse of an organization's operational function. I credit much of my hands-on experience as an operational analyst, along with my MBA education, prior to my recruiting days as the basis for my ability to understand the critical functions of these roles and how they impact the financial 'bottom line'. I have worked closely with hiring managers to understand not only the requirements for roles, but also the nuances to one's professional personality that will prove to be the successful match for their teams.
