What brought you to Vaco? What drew your interest?
I was actually found by a recruiter from Vaco, so rather than applying for a position, they’re the ones that found me rather than me finding them. Once I found out more about the position I was recruited for, who it was with, the location and what it entailed, it was an opportunity I could not pass up.
Why should anyone choose Vaco SF for Managed Services/Contingent Workforce?
The level of professionalism exhibited by the company, I believe, is what sets it apart.
What’s the toughest business decision that you’ve ever made at this point in your career?
While working for my previous employer I was offered a web design position with two newspapers that I had been writing part-time for. After taking sometime to think it over, I decided to stay with my full-time job as a recruiter rather that begin working working full-time for the newspaper as a Web Designer. It was a tough decision, but one that I’m glad I didn’t make in hindsight because I probably wouldn’t be where I am today.
What’s the best thing about working at Vaco?
The people. My fellow employees, albeit they may be on the other side of the country, are very down to earth, mellow personalities from what I gathered from my time visiting the Walnut Creek office. Working with people like that can make a job that much easier. And not to be overlooked, the opportunities Vaco provides for potential candidates and its current workforce. The fact they have given me the opportunity to get my foot in the door at a multinational technology company is something that is invaluable.
Describe your work style.
I am a hustler. Point me in the right direction, give me the tools necessary for the task at hand and you won’t be disappointed with the results. I am honest, reliable and trustworthy to carry out any job duties.
Two, actually. 1.) “Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies.” 2.) “And I know, if I’m going to have any life anymore, it’s because I’m still willing to fight and die for that inch. Because that’s what living is.”
