Why I love being an Ajilon recruiter
By Katy Lyden, Division Director, Phoenix
I am one of those really annoying people who can honestly say they love their job. And once I start talking about it, you probably can’t get me to stop! I love networking with candidates and clients, and telling them about our company, my job and my fabulous team. You will find me at my daughter’s dance class getting recruits, networking at preschool fundraisers or updating LinkedIn from my son’s soccer practice. When you love what you do, it doesn’t feel like “work.”
What’s recruiting all about?
Being a recruiter is not a college major or something little kids dream of becoming one day. This job can be hard. You have amazing days where you find great candidates great jobs and make a lot of money doing so. You have days when your candidate no shows to an interview with a client or, worse, show up but with their dog in tow (yes, we all have those stories!) and at least they make for entertainment at parties and social gatherings!
At the end of the day, we each can say that we affect people’s lives in the most positive and important way – we put them to work. We help people find their passion. We help people support their families and follow their dreams. Being a recruiter at Ajilon has given me all that and so much more!
