For Job Candidates

Preferred Method To Be Contacted By A Candidate: Email

Preferred Process For Following Up On Application: Send me one follow up email (if I haven’t responded to your initial contact). Good manners are really important.

Things That Impress You In A Candidate: A well-turned phrase in your cover letter (even better if you can make me laugh); Attention to the detail of the position requirements (send me a matrix chart with how you meet the requirements, and I may fall in love)

Things Candidates Must Include To Be Considered For Job: Education and demonstration of skills.

Things That Will Disqualify A Candidate From Getting Considered: Typos – if you can’t check your letter and resume for typos, you are not my kind of candidate.

Can Candidates Apply For Multiple Positions And Not Get Penalized?: Candidates can apply for multiple positions and not be penalized (but this typically doesn’t apply to the way I work with clients).

Recruiter’s Perspective

What’s your favorite quote?  “If the shoe fits, buy it in 3 colors.” Deb McClanahan

What do you like to do in your free time? Paint and work out

In a sentence, why do you enjoy working at your company? I love being my own boss.

In a sentence, how does your company have fun on a regular basis? Take the team out for a great bottle of wine and a nice meal regularly. (The fun of that is the team is most often me, with occasional additional team members as needed for larger projects).

In a sentence, how would you describe the employees at your company? Tis just me, since I don’t have a pet right now.
