How long have you worked at TECHEAD?
I recently started with TECHEAD in September.
What led you to work at TECHEAD?
I graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University in May 2021 with a bachelor’s degree in Communications & Marketing. Since April, I had been employed by the Federal government, but I quickly realized that I was not fully passionate about my job. I began job searching and after speaking to numerous recruiters, I found the recruiting profession to be so interesting! I began networking with recruiters and searching for companies with open positions. Before I knew it, I was interviewing with TECHEAD and was offered the job!

Tell us about where you live, and how your home workplace is set up.
I live roughly 30 minutes outside of Richmond, Virginia. I transformed the guest room in my home to my office area. My Aussiedoodle, Lady, is also a part of my office as she lays at my feet all day while I work!
What is keeping you productive and motivated while working remotely?
Every day I remind myself how much I prayed to have a job as a recruiter, and how lucky am I to do something I enjoy as a career – that is motivation in itself!
What are your favorite hobbies or pastimes?
When I am not recruiting candidates with TECHEAD, I have my own side business as a portrait and wedding photographer.
