For Job Candidates

Preferred Method To Be Contacted By A Candidate: LinkedIn Preferred Process For Following Up On Application: As a contract recruiter I work with many different clients, while maintaining relationships with former clients. If you are following up with a company I am currently contracting with, please message with via my company email with them. If you would like to be referred to a company in my network, send me an InMail via LinkedIn. I am part of the Open Network and accept messages from everyone. Things That Impress You In A Candidate: Candidates who are self-aware are my favorite to work with. That means knowing both their strengths that make them a fit for the job, as well weaknesses they want my help addressing and overcoming. I am always impressed by a candidate who asks, "What can I do to be a better candidate?" I love a candidate who wants me to work with them and not just for them. Things Candidates Must Include To Be Considered For Job: A resume, and links to relevant work samples/code, accompanied by a short but compelling introduction. Things That Will Disqualify A Candidate From Getting Considered: I hate that I have to say this, but overly personal messages throw up red flags. Knowing too much about a candidate can create conflicts related to discrimination laws. Also, showing a complete lack of understanding of the role or company is a big no-no. Can Candidates Apply For Multiple Positions And Not Get Penalized?: Yes

Recruiter's Perspective

What's your favorite quote? "There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you." -Marianne Williamson What do you like to do in your free time?

And, of course, taking time to pamper myself - mani-pedis, massages, hot tub time, etc. In a sentence, why do you enjoy working at your company? I love having choice, and deciding when I say yes, and when I say no. I love the variety that comes from working independently, getting to know many different companies and products. And I love being A Boss. In a sentence, how does your company have fun on a regular basis? I'll answer for my clients. Besides the regular happy hours you find everywhere, I love running team building exercises that allow everyone to get to know their teammates. This is especially important in fast growing startups.
