Title: VP Talent Acquisition, JBCStyle
Location: Seattle, WA
Recruiting specialty: The majority of my days are dedicated to Buying, Planning, Design and Development. My past recruiting experience includes IT, Marketing, and Creative.
I became a recruiter because … I LOVE talking to and meeting new people! When I first got into recruiting I remember sitting in my manager’s office and telling her that I finally know “what I want to do when I grow up”. I love the fact that I can make a difference in the lives of the people I work with and make my hiring managers lives easier by finding the perfect new addition to their team. I know it sounds cliché but I love it, and I think people notice when you have a genuine love for what you do.
