Finding the right fit: Recruiters

“My life “title”, who I am, is a series of connections and positive energies. Helping people find their way in the business world is just one small piece. I believe deeply that we are all capable of so much more than we realize, and that finding out who we really are is one of the greatest challenges that life has to offer.”

Those are the words of Maria Ambrose, who is a technical recruiter by profession. For her, and many other of the hiring managers we ran across on about.me, their jobs are more than just finding someone for a position, it’s about finding a good cultural fit and helping others find their way in the business world as a whole. And though these recruiters take their jobs very seriously, and it was fun exploring their personalities and fun quirks outside of the workplace.

For example, Raina Tropp (in our header photo) uses an app on her page to share her San Diego HR mom blog with tips for weightloss, getting ahead in the workplace and much more.

But we don’t want to spoil all the fun! Check out their pages see their personal and professional stories for yourself!
