Now, let’s talk about TruPath!
Why did you decide to come to TruPath? I was looking for a new challenge in my life and everything about TruPath was exciting to me. I loved the culture, atmosphere, and professionalism of the team. The way we do business at TruPath is truly different from any other recruiting firm I’ve ever dealt with and I wanted to be part of that.
Why do you enjoy working at TruPath? The values that our company stands for and the people I work with are great.
What TruPrinciple speaks to you the most? Trust. I believe it encompasses all of our principles and is the backbone to all good relationships.
What advice do you have for an aspiring BD Professional? Never think you’ve mastered your craft and always look for ways to improve your skills. Be a good listener. The worst thing you can do is talk over people.
What is the most challenging part of your role? After 25 years of being an executive in a totally different industry, I’ve had to learn how to best approach this industry with the same knowledge I had in my old role.
Why is TruPath special? We treat each client like it’s our only client. We strategically cap the number of clients we serve so that we don’t overextend our recruiters. This allows us to give 100% to each client in order to find the perfect fit.
