Hometown: Bangalore, India
I was born and raised in India. For almost five years I was working for an American-based company in the financial sector. I’d never even thought about moving to the U.S., until I realized destiny had other plans for me! I married my husband in 2014 and moved to the U.S. in 2015. We spent much of that time long-distance, which was definitely a challenge. Finally, after some time in Dallas, we settled here in the Grand Canyon State. I was really excited about the change and looked forward to exploring this beautiful valley!
At first, I had a lot of apprehension about getting my career back on track. An opportunity to work for the same company that I was associated with in India came up and I jumped at it. This was a perfect short-term solution, but I’d always had a desire to pursue a career in HR/Recruiting.
While exploring my options, I learned about Right Skills’ “Essentials of Recruiting for the Staffing Industry.” This is an online program that opened the door for me to pursue a recruiting career. During my search, I came across the Associate Recruiter opportunity with TruPath and applied.
The hiring manager and I had a great initial phone call and we scheduled a pursuant in-person meeting. I thoroughly enjoyed the interview. It was great learning about how TruPath evolved as a company and it inspired me! As of a part of the selection process, I was challenged with a writing assignment. This was an exciting way to demonstrate my creative ability. In the end, I was extended an offer with TruPath. Yay!
TruPath is undoubtedly one of the best places to work. We have a great culture. One of my first events here was a volunteer day at a local homeless shelter. We grilled food and served hundreds of people. Opportunities like that are a fantastic way to grow as a team, and more importantly, give back to the local community. I’m very much looking forward to becoming a full-time Recruiter and everything else that the future here brings!
