Recruiter’s Perspective

What’s your favorite quote? “There is no passion to be found in playing small—in settling for a life that is less than you are capable of living.” – Nelson Mandela

What do you like to do in your free time? I enjoy the outdoors! So I spend my time with interesting and caring people who enjoy the same things I do: running, hiking, motorcycle road trips, hitting the beach, Irish Pubs…

In a sentence, why do you enjoy working at your company? I genuinely feel respected by my colleagues and this comes across in their words, deeds and actions on a daily basis.

In a sentence, how does your company have fun on a regular basis? Fostering the day to day people interactions and sharing real life moments that provide the reality glue we all need that keeps us positive and knowing we can laugh at ourselves as we tackle new challenges.

In a sentence, how would you describe the employees at your company? We are resilient and approach each challenge as an opportunity to adapt new methods, skills and strategies that will continue to drive our business forward.
