What is your favorite thing about your job?
MW: Employers often seek out iHire when they are frustrated with trying to sort through unqualified applicants. They’re stressed because they can’t fill jobs fast enough or they need to expand their candidate pool. I believe the most rewarding part about partnering with our clients is creating effective solutions to address these challenges, then hearing about our clients’ success stories.
What makes iHire different from other job boards/career platforms?
MW: One of my favorite things about iHire is the candidate-centric experience – everything is tailored to their industry. The search experience on other job boards can be annoying because jobs unrelated to their specific industry will appear in results. At iHire, job seekers don’t have to filter through jobs unrelated to their skill set. And when it’s easy for candidates to find the right jobs, employers win too!
Tell us about your favorite client success story.
MW: There are so many successes it’s hard to pick just one! The best feeling is when a client has come to us with a hiring problem that we’re able to solve. I enjoy hearing the joy in our clients’ voices when they’ve found the right candidate(s) through iHire.
What recruiting/hiring trends excite you?
MW: Right now the U.S. is at full employment which has created a robust candidate market. For employers, they really have to get creative and compete against each other for talent. It’s exciting because iHire has great ways to expand an employer’s reach and help businesses brand themselves toward a unique pool of job seekers.
What do you do in your free time?
MW: I enjoy walking my standard poodle and kayaking on the lake. I also spend a lot of time with family and friends who are happy to plan some of my weekend activities and vacations for me ☺
As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
MW: As a kid, I read all the Black Stallion series books and Saddle Club books so of course I wanted to be a jockey.
What’s your favorite movie/book and why?
MW: I like many movies and books and don’t feel that I have a favorite! However, I really like to read and watch the news so I stay updated on current events.
What’s the best piece of advice you would give someone who is not having any luck finding the right candidate for their job?
MW: Be persistent and maintain a positive attitude.
