In the past, my recruitment experience was mostly in IT staffing with sales. I found that I loved recruiting when I was doing it, but I wanted to explore sales and account management because I loved client relationship development. Throughout my time in the industry I moved in and out of sales and recruitment. I am drawn to this industry because I am a strong relationship builder. I’m genuine, and if I can help you I will, and if I can’t help, I’ll tell you and try to find you someone that can. This mentality with candidates and clients has propelled me in my career and aligns with the corporate values of ORS Partners.
I first learned of ORS through an acquaintance that I had been networking and discussing industry trends with. This led to some more networking through his connections for more insight into talent acquisition solutions like ORS’ White Label Solutions. I had come into contact with people at ORS to see what the organization was like and kept in touch with them. Through two years of interaction and the right timing, I saw myself becoming a part of the team.
My past employer was very competitive and fast paced. When I joined ORS, I found it was still a high-performing work environment, but the mission is different. I realized that ORS consultants are most concerned with finding the right candidate that will provide for the client and fits the role. I love the recruitment tactics and the ability to work more exclusively with clients. We have the opportunity to consistently communicate with clients, get to know them and their teams and truly understand the job requisitions. This allows us to have more transparency and candidness with candidates – we’re looking for both the right hard and soft skills to create a true ‘match’ for the candidate and client. ORS deployed the same methodology when hiring me. ORS Partners wants you to have the hard skills, but also the personality that fits into the culture. While I haven’t been an actual employee for very long, my 2 year relationship with ORS has allowed me to witness the internal career progression and growth. It’s exciting to be a part of because it’s a place to learn and see myself grow.
Aside from the business itself, what impressed me most was everyone I met in the interview process. Each person had very similar answers to my questions that were genuinely on the same page and not just telling you what you want to hear. I haven’t even had to ask people for help because they just come up to see how I’m doing. The teamwork and collaboration is real.
