Looking back at the past few years, I can see that I’ve grown a lot personally and professionally. My time at Talener has been an experience that has allowed me to become more confident, make decisions, create my own path, and build relationships with peers, candidates, and some of the world’s leading companies.
My promotion to Group Manager lets me reflect on the skills I’ve learned, the confidence I’ve built, and how I want to drive my team into the future of Talener Boston.
Committing to building long-term relationships has helped me on both the candidate side and the client side of the staffing business. These relationships are critical for me to differentiate myself from other recruiters in the Boston Metro. Strong relationships build solid foundations, and this is something that I have continued to learn about during my time at Talener.
Every interaction in creating business relationships is important. It’s rewarding in so many ways to build strong enough relationships that foster referrals from past candidates and clients. This is a huge mark of success for me personally. It affirms that I’ve put in the time and effort to build enough trust with someone that they are happy to refer me to their colleagues & friends.
The idea of staffing is straightforward – matchmaking companies to candidates. But the reality of staffing is that it is a human business where there are complex situations and emotions that must be navigated daily. I’ve taken the opportunity to learn how to be creative in my problem solving and breakdown situations to analyze about how every step affects the outcome.
I’ve become more confident in how I make decisions. I know I can remain calm in high-pressure situations both inside and outside of the office. Tackling these situations early on in my career at Talener has been critical to my success.
In my new position as Group Manager, I’m looking forward to developing my team’s individual skillsets as much as possible. It’s important, and I look forward to promoting members of the team. I want to manage in a way that leverages everyone’s strengths to provide the best service; efficiently delivering results for clients and candidates.
Personally, I am looking forward to building upon my problem solving and decision-making skills. Being in a managerial position allows me to take ownership and accountability of a variety of situations which will only help me grow professionally and develop these skills further.
I have been working towards a management position since my first day at Talener. Experiencing organic career growth first-hand has been extremely rewarding and I couldn’t be more excited to take on more responsibilities.
