What’s your favorite part of the business?

The interview stage. I enjoy observing candidates as they go through various stages of the interview process. It is interesting seeing their expectations change, sometimes significantly, as their interest in the opportunity goes up or down.

Favorite vacation spot?

Hawaii

 

Favorite client and why?

I have a client that is a leading designer, developer and global supplier of a broad range of analog and digital semiconductor connectivity solutions. They have a great search process which places an emphasis on working directly with the hiring managers along with an impressive history of growth and success in their industry focus which is a great story to sell.

 

Most satisfying placement and why?

My candidate had been with a top company for 14 years and had never interviewed for a job since. The opportunity I presented and placed him at brought the family back to their original hometown where both of their parents, siblings, and extended family lived. The candidate’s father called me to thank me for reuniting their family and giving him the opportunity to be a full-time grandfather rather than only seeing his grandchildren once a year.
