How were you introduced to the IT recruiting industry?

I was approached by a recruiter through LinkedIn. At the time, I was considering taking the next step in my career and had been working as a Global Mobility Consultant with PwC. After speaking with the recruiter and learning more about the industry, I realized I had an interest in applying my past experiences to help others connect with employers and advance their careers.

What makes you a great recruiter?

I’m extremely motivated to help others. I truly strive to help others find their dream “job” and be an honest point of contact for employers. This passion to help job seekers combined with my keen attention to detail are ultimately what give me an edge and have allowed me to successfully help many who I have worked with.

How did you first learn about Maris Consulting Group?

The recruiter who had reached out to me worked for the DeWinter Group, Maris Consulting Group’s parent company.

What are 3 words to describe the Maris Consulting Group (or your impression thus far)?

  • Integrity

If you were to provide advice to peers in tech seeking to develop their careers, what would it be?

I would let them know that their technical skills are important to showcase what they’ve learned thus far through internships, school work and prior experiences. But ultimately what employers are looking for is if they have the passion and the soft skills necessary to create the ideal fit for both the company and the individual.
