Connecting people to opportunities
In my first recruiting job at an education reform startup, I got my hands dirty hiring >100 people over 1.5 years. At Lever, I hired the first 50 employees as Chief of Staff and built the programs that led to many successful hires thereafter. Some of my favorite colleagues took me 3+ years to hire!
I got to see first-hand the huge impact of hiring, both the positive and negative. I've also known too many people ending up in the wrong roles and getting frustrated, or worse, stepping back from their once-strong ambitions and dreams.
Assembling the best possible team is critical for a business to get right. Not only for the financial impact, but for our society's progress. Studies have shown that job satisfaction is one of the leading indicators of happiness, and there's nothing quite like finding true meaning and fulfillment at work. That's why recruiting – good recruiting – is more important than ever.
I was invited by Linkedin to become a regular contributor to its Talent Blog, one of the most popular in the recruiting industry. My posts consistently performed in the top 10% in terms of views and shares, and I was named as a "Recruitment & HR bloggers you should follow" list.
