When I was ready to make the transition from practicing law to recruiting, I did extensive networking and research about the industry. During this time, an overwhelming number of my networking contacts recommended that I pursue a recruiting position at MLA. Overall, MLA has an outstanding reputation for not only being a great place to work but also a company that provides excellent service to its clients and candidates. I have now been at MLA for over three years (and counting) and I am so grateful that I took this valuable advice.
The ability to make a real and positive impact on the trajectory of a candidate’s career is incredibly rewarding to me.
Industry trends and market demands can change quickly. As a recruiter, I am constantly adapting to new challenges and unanticipated changes in the market.
One of the things I love most about working at MLA is that leadership is dedicated to ensuring that the recruiters have the tools and guidance we need to truly succeed. As such, I’ve celebrated so many wonderful achievements over the past few years. One that stands out is that I received the award for “Excellence in Candidate Development” at our 2020 Annual Meeting. It was such an honor to be recognized amongst such a talented and experienced group of recruiters.
The best advice I can give to anyone looking to make a career change is to do your research and make sure it’s right for you.
This is a tough question for me! From about the age of 10, I wanted to go to law school. Had I not gone, I likely would have pursued a career that leveraged my political science degree.
Right now, I’m working through my travel bucket list. I’m currently working on planning trips to Spain and Germany.
