Based in Hampton Roads, Va., Chris Duhaime is a Recruiter at Techead, where he is responsible for finding the best candidates for IT and creative positions.
How long have you worked at TECHEAD?
I started at Techead in early June, so just a few weeks.
What led you to work at TECHEAD?
I’d been working for 3 years in recruiting before Techead. Katie Seidman and I had worked together at a previous company, and she had reached out to see if I was interested this position at Techead. Katie had nothing but great things to say about Techead, and I immediately jumped at the opportunity.
Tell us what about your best day at TECHEAD, so far.
My best day so far was meeting a lot of the other team members at a Techead outing to the Norfolk Tides baseball game. It was nice to be able to put faces to names and get to know everyone’s background.
Describe TECHEAD in 3 words.
Organized. Efficient. Fun.
Tell us about where you live, and how your home workplace is set up.
My wife, twin boys, and I live in Chesapeake. I don’t necessarily have a designated working area, as I like to set up shop wherever I’m most comfortable. I’d say my workplaces change 4-5 times a day.
What is keeping you productive and innovative while working remotely? What’s motivating you?
Helping others find their dream job has always been a huge motivator for me. I know how I feel when someone helps me find a job, so I enjoy passing that along to those who have either lost a job or are just looking for a change.
What are your favorite hobbies or pastimes?
I played football from about 5th grade through college. Although I don’t play anymore, I still enjoy going to games and watching the NFL on TV. I also enjoy hanging out and playing with our 3-year-old twin boys.
Anything else you want to add:
I enjoy listening to the I Am Athlete podcast. The podcast is made up of 4 former NFL players who bring in a variety of athletes to talk about life as a professional athlete, life after sports, and family.
My wife and I went to Maui 5 years ago and I’d love to go back. I would also like to vacation to Alaska.
