For Job Candidates

Preferred Method To Be Contacted By A Candidate: Email Preferred Process For Following Up On Application: Please feel free to email me with your questions and concerns. I get busy and I have a lot of candidates that I am working with. I don't mind getting an email follow up, just don't call me and email me every day. Once a week is enough. Things That Impress You In A Candidate: Honesty. Integrity. Being themselves. Being responsive. It's not just about what is on paper. How a candidate presents themselves is very important. I'm a pretty laid back person and I don't want to have to chase a candidate. If you're not interested, then say so. If you are and we need to work on your resume then do so. I partner with my candidates to help them put their best foot forward to be the one that gets hired. Things Candidates Must Include To Be Considered For Job: Complete up to date resume. Compensation that is desired. How far will they travel? Relo? If they want to add a cover letter , that is fine. But it needs to be geared towards the position desired. Things That Will Disqualify A Candidate From Getting Considered: Being unresponsive. Not carefully reviewing the job description to see if they're a match for the position. Poorly constructed resume. Resumes need to be achievement based and be relevant to the position applying for. Can Candidates Apply For Multiple Positions And Not Get Penalized?: Yes

Recruiter's Perspective

What's your favorite quote? Keep Moving Forward What do you like to do in your free time? Free time? As a working, single mom with two teen girls I don't get much downtime. Sleep is a luxury. In a sentence, why do you enjoy working at your company? I like speaking to new people and learning about different positions and industries. I love our clients and the joy of speaking to a wide variety of candidates, I don't just learn about them as employees but them as people. I want to make sure that we have a match on both sides so that everyone comes out a winner. In a sentence, how does your company have fun on a regular basis? We are always laughing and joking around. We pull practical jokes on each other and hang out after hours. We get out of the office and as a group go to movies and other events. In a sentence, how would you describe the employees at your company? Open, friendly, really willing to help candidates get the position that is the best fit for them.

When most people think of Nike, they think of shoes, retail stores, and, of course, athletes. That's all true, but there's more. Behind Nike's walls, you'll find the doers and thinkers who design, create, and innovate every day. There are also data scientists who discover and leverage athlete insights to create the future of sport.

You might be surprised to learn about the impact you can have in Data & Analytics at Nike versus at a major tech giant. Nike employees get to work on a wide array of challenges, so if you're obsessed with math, science, computers, and/or data, and you love sport, these stories may inspire you to work at Nike.

Employee loyalty is something every company longs for. It's estimated employee turnover costs as much as 130-200% of an employee's salary. When a talented, knowledgeable, trained employee leaves, it's bad for business. And, when lots of them leave, it can be the kiss of death.

If you saw our first video, you might have heard about the awkward situation one of our viewers, Kevin submitted. He is a college student who's working a part time job to make ends meet.
