Meet Courtney Walters
Courtney is TECHEAD Recruiting Resources Manager, and she was just named Terrific TECHEAD Talent for the 1st quarter of 2012. We’re very happy that Courtney’s on our team, and asked her to share some of her insights with us.
What do you love most about your work?
I love the fact that I get to work on something new and exciting each day. There is a huge sense of satisfaction being able to match amazing talent with the perfect role at a company where there’s a culture fit. Every day is a new beginning, and the opportunity to build relationships with people throughout the country is not something everyone has the chance to do.
What’s your biggest challenge?
My biggest challenge is juggling all the new jobs and new candidates while managing my team. It does keep me on my toes, and it motivates me to constantly come up with new and innovative ways to be efficient and effective.
How does your own career path help you as a recruiter?
I majored in psychology and am luckily quite adept at reading people. Being a recruiter has been the perfect fit. My own career also allows me to understand the position a job seeker is in, as well as the thought process of a hiring manager.
What advice do you have for creatives in the job market?
Stay current in new technology, and build an OUTSTANDING web portfolio!
What was best thing that happened to you (work-wise) in the last year?
There have been so many highlights in the past year. Being recognized by my team, making several perm placements, and being able to reap the rewards of hard work stand out.
