GoodCall Mar 2016-Jun 2018

As a Recruiter at GoodCall I had to manage the entire recruitment process and be the face of our client and advisor to our candidates. I had to access the newest trends and develop new ones, to ensure GoodCall is at the cutting edge of marketing and attraction with the in-demand passive candidate pool. My team of flexible Sourcers and I worked hard to spread good vibes about each one of our cool clients.

On a daily basis I typically…

- Managed…all aspects of each project
- Helped the client create a viable, interesting story to attract attention
- Developed long-term relationships not based on fee-size, but on mutual passion for What, How, and Why we created GoodCall
- Served as the role model for my Sourcers, advising and coaching them
- Gave and took feedback from…well…everyone (candidate, clients, Sourcer, bosses)
- Conducted business development meetings with clients to introduce the GoodCall concept and see if there’s a match in their needs and our approach
- Did my best to have others follow my lead in the Sales & Marketing department
- Managed offers and crisis situations
