Alicia Smith: Trainee Division Recruiter
What motivates you?
Success. The success of my coworkers, friends, and family in any aspect of life. I love to see people I know or care about doing well and achieving their goals. That motivates me to try my absolute hardest in everything I do and ultimately pushes me out of my comfort zone.
What’s the biggest piece of advice you can give a job seeker?
Utilize LinkedIn to its fullest potential. I have noticed that many young professionals do not take the time to fully develop their LinkedIn to sell themselves. It is appealing to employers when a LinkedIn profile is fully detailed and explains why they would excel in a potential career.
“I have only been with AllSearch for about a year or so now and I am loving every minute of it. In any job, there are highs and lows. However, the highs most definitely outweigh the lows here at AllSearch. Helping an individual get their dream job or start a new career must be one of the most rewarding parts of this job. Being here for a short time and being completely new to the recruiting world can be a roadblock but I have had a good amount of success already.
My greatest placement ever made has to be the one I made out in Detroit, Michigan for a company who was looking for an entry level Sales Engineer. I worked with this candidate day in and day out and helped guide him through every step in the interview process (very rigorous and competitive process). After the final interview, it was clear that he was not the front runner. However, I knew he was the perfect fit for the role and his drive and desire to be apart of the company was unmatched. Long story short, the candidate and I got creative with the follow up process and ultimately convinced them he was the right fit.
He ended up receiving an offer and signed it immediately. I was actually out of the office the day he signed the offer as it was my birthday. He called me that day and I could hear the excitement and gratitude in his voice. He told me over the phone that I “changed his life.” I am so happy I was able to help him find and land his dream sales career fresh out of college. That was a life changing day for him and the cherry on top on my birthday!”
