What do you enjoy most about the search industry?
“As a competitive person, I enjoy the thrill of the hunt. Identifying and convincing the perfect candidate to consider exploring my client’s job opportunity is very rewarding. I also enjoy the variety; each assignment has many variables which keeps it fresh and challenging.  Meeting candidates and discovering what makes them tick is always interesting.”
