Senior Recruiter, InternaL Talent Acquisition - DZConneX
Remotely- Summerville, SC
West Virginia University - BS in Journalism
WHEN DID YOU BEGIN WORKING FOR YOH?
I am responsible for hiring top talent for DXConnex's RPO Client programs.
What does your typical day consist of?
To me, there is no typical day in Talent Acquisition, which is one of the things I love about the work I do! Every day there is something different, challenging, or exciting; which makes my career all the more rewarding. Not to mention I get the opportunity to really make an impact on people’s lives.
Tell us a story about a specific project or client you worked on that was especially meaningful, memorable, unique, etc
Each project I have the opportunity to tackle is unique and meaningful in its own way. What is especially memorable to me is the culture that we have throughout DZConneX, Day & Zimmermann, and Yoh. Two weeks into my tenure at DZConneX, I saw a post on LinkedIn by Joe Ritzel, Executive Sponsor of PDARG (People with Disabilities Advocacy Resource Group) – now ADAPT (Abled and Disabled Advocated Partnering Together) seeking a new co-chair. As a person with epilepsy, I am inspired by my story and other people's journeys of bringing their authentic self to work everyday. This was an aha moment for me that I was truly at home and where I belonged career wise!
What do you like best about working for Yoh?
The people! My colleagues are the best and they are all very supportive, including leadership! From the get-go, I felt comfortable being open with leadership about my epilepsy and received nothing but compassion in return. At Yoh, I'm seen for my abilities as a recruiter and not for my challenges.
What Does Working for Yoh provide you that other agencies or companies do not?
I now appreciate real work life balance with the flexibility Yoh offers to work remotely. This truly allows me to take better care of myself and spend more time with my family. I also feel empowered to make decisions and voice my opinion with leadership. I sense I truly have a voice, no matter right or wrong, and that I am being listened to.
What is your favorite activity to do outside of work and why?
I love to spend as much time with my husband and three children as possible. Life is short, take advantage of the time you have to make memories with the ones you love.
