Describe your role at recruitAbility.
I’m the sourcer for the Mandalorians, which means that I’m in charge of creating the job postings for our Finance & Accounting, management, and Sales & marketing positions. Some of my other responsibilities as a sourcer are headhunting for a specific role, sourcing thru the applicants on our different platforms, and making that first contact with our candidates.
What is your favorite part of recruiting?
Talking and getting to know people!
What made you want to join recruitAbility?
The core values and Damien, the Director of our Finance and Operations Division. I was originally in the process of looking for a sourcing position in the IT department and was doing several interviews, but I had an interview with Damien and everything clicked so effortlessly.
Do you have a favorite business book or podcast?
No, I don’t have a favorite business book or podcast I’m more into music.
What do you enjoy doing outside of the office?
It depends on my mood, but usually, I’m more of a chilled plans type of guy (video games, eating out, going on a trip, taking a dance class, just chilling at a park with friends, binge-watching some series or anime, or just cooking with friends and family) but occasionally, I like to go out and party and dance my heart out.
What is your favorite thing to do around Austin?
I’ve never been to Austin so I don’t really have a favorite thing to do in it, but if ever go I’m going to for sure look for museums, contemporary dance classes, great restaurants, and a great night out where I can dance until my feet can’t go anymore.
