What do you do? I recruit for open positions on behalf of our clients and amplify digital visibility of the jobs. In addition, I screen and match qualified applicants using Laborocity’s custom applicant tracking system, interview candidates, and lead them through our onboarding process.
Describe a typical day: A typical day for me revolves around reaching out to new applicants and guiding them through the process of becoming an active associate, conducting phone interviews, and assisting the Operations Team with fulfillment.
Favorite thing about work: Taco Thursdays! Every week!
What do you like most about your job? Definitely the conversations I have with our Doers. I talk to many people from all backgrounds and get to know them on a personal level.
Through a casual Friday conversation I learned you’re a Vinyl Record enthusiast. How did it come about? Good question. I fell in love with house music and the natural consequence of this new love affair happened to be collecting vinyl records.
What’s your favorite record in the collection? I would have to say “The Discoteque E.P.” I stumbled upon it at a flea market in Manhattan and never have been so blown away by a piece of music! The cover art is a photo of the entrance at Paradise Garage, which was an old disco/house music club in New York City. The club was open through the 80’s and mid 90’s, so I never had the chance to check it out. It’s a very nostalgic piece of music that takes you back in time to the pinnacle of New York’s underground scene.
Do you listen to the albums or are you just a collector? I have listened to all of my records at least twice, but have listened to my favorites many more times. Above all, the listening experience on vinyl is so much different than what I’m used to in this digital age (Spotify, iTunes, SoundCloud, etc.) and I can’t get enough!
