Recruiter's Perspective

What's your favorite quote? “Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.” Also "Wherever the art of medicine is loved, there is also a love of humanity" What do you like to do in your free time? Hiking with my wonderful dog and discovering new trails in the PNW, working out, cooking, watching football (NFL Geek) In a sentence, why do you enjoy working at your company? The people I work with and the amazing new friends I have made In a sentence, how does your company have fun on a regular basis? It is not in the handbook but I think it is a rule that we laugh every day. Laughter is the cure for everything. We have fun every day, celebrating occasions with lunches and potlucks, healthy living incentives and competitions, recognize diversity, and so much more In a sentence, how would you describe the employees at your company? A diverse, very supportive group of people that seem to really encourage varied ideas and perspectives

If you saw our first video, you might have heard about the awkward situation one of our viewers, Diane submitted. She has recently worked with a co-worker on a group project. When it came time to present the project at a meeting, Diane let her co-worker present. While it went great, the co-worker proceed to take credit for nearly all of Diane's work. Frustrating to say the least!

Starting a family is one of the biggest milestones in a person's life. It's in those first few months when a parent can really bond with their newborn and make lifelong memories. However, for some new dads, it can be difficult to juggle being a new parent while remaining dedicated to their career.

Fortunately, some companies have generous paternity leave policies that give new dads the ability to take time off of work to stay home with their child.

There are LOTS of questions around resume dos and don'ts. There's so much advice out there that it can be overwhelming to try and figure out what's the correct answer.

During our weekly live Office Hours on YouTube, two of our coaches, Ariella Coombs and J.T. O'Donnell, answer questions live from viewers related to their job search, career success, on the job situations and more.
