To truly understand the nuances of a client’s needs, you need to take the time to listen and learn about your client and their goals. That’s what I try to instill in the recruiters that I guide and instruct as they grow into world-class career advisors.

Nesli Orhon is a Partner and Recruiting & Professional Development Manager for our Solutions Practice Group. In this role, she works closely with new recruiters providing oversight, strategic support and guidance as they progress in their careers. She prides herself on creating a positive learning environment, where new directors and managing directors can develop their skills and grow in their roles and responsibilities. Nesli uses her experiences as a recruiter to recommend processes and systems that will maximize employee engagement and enhance training and professional development opportunities to help build high-performing teams.
