Work ethic may sound like a simple, generic, canned answer to this question, but it is the reason that I am a productive member of the elite TalentScout team. I was born to a father whose father worked on the line in the same factory for over 30 years. My grandfather passed down to my father the work ethic that was instilled in me back when I started mowing lawns as a kid. This desire to be successful and the feeling that I got by satisfying my customers has not changed. I have taken this work ethic to the business world and ran with it.
My job as a Sr. Recruiter is ultimately to find talented candidates that satisfy elite TalentScout’s clientele. I have had a few years of experience learning the business world, learning tricks of the trade, and building a network of talented candidates in the Milwaukee area. These three things coupled with my work ethic make me “elite” in what I do.
In 2010, I graduated from Purdue University with a degree in Mathematics Education. I then went on to teach for a few years in the state of Indiana. During that time, I taught a combination of 6th and 7th grade Mathematics, along with 1 semester of College Algebra at a local University. Teaching and managing a classroom was hard work and there is no doubt that it helped train me for the mental toughness that is recruiting.
I started my recruiting career with a traditional staffing agency and focused my training on direct hire IT staffing. As I began to learn the intricacies behind staff augmentation and direct hire staffing, I was happy to have been chosen to work in the field of direct hire. I started recruiting in January, 2013, and I have been staffing for permanent positions ever since.
My personal achievements lie in sharing knowledge with others. I have educated and impacted the lives of thousands of students, as well as personally grown from what those students have taught me.
The same goes with my network of Recruiters, HR Representatives, Sales Representatives, and hiring managers across Wisconsin. I have learned a lot from those individuals that I have met in the industry. Recently, I have had the opportunity to start giving back to those recruiters with less tenure than myself. I consider it a personal accomplishment to be able to share my knowledge with others to help them grow professionally as others have helped me in the past.
Since my time in Milwaukee, I have donated time and funds to several charities in the Greater Milwaukee Area. Some of the most recent ones that I have donated funds or time to are the MACC Fund, Team Rubicon, Operation Gratitude, Christmas Clearing Council, and Blessings in a Backpack.
Outside of elite, I am first and foremost an outdoorsman. Other than hunting, fishing, and hiking, I like to spend time traveling, playing and watching sports, running, lifting, and spending time with family.
