Cherie Basener, a Director – Candidate Development with our D.C. Interim Legal Talent team, assists attorneys and other legal professionals with finding interim, project-based and temp-to-perm roles within law firms and corporations.
Leaving San Diego was a difficult decision, but Cherie has enjoyed getting to know the D.C. area, along with adjusting to the unique weather it has to offer. She enjoys traveling and a good glass of wine, and you will always find her with a new book in her hand.
Before joining Major, Lindsey & Africa, Cherie was a business solutions manager for Adams & Martin Group, providing support to local DC law firms to fulfill their employment needs and connect them with the best talent available. Playing a dual role as both business support and recruiter, Cherie also guided candidates in taking the next steps in their careers.
Cherie was introduced to the world of recruiting when she joined Robert Half’s administrative team in 2016. She then joined Careers in Nonprofits as an executive recruiter, building strong client and candidate relationships with nonprofits in the D.C. metro area. She recruited director and managerial-level positions for these organizations, developing job descriptions, handling initial interviews and guiding her clients through the hiring process in general.
