Get to Know Kali

How would you describe recruiting agencies to a third grader?

We are matchmakers. If you are a captain picking your kickball team but couldn’t find any good players, what would you do? Vaco can help you find great players in the most desperate situations.

What characteristics and disciplines do you need to be successful in your role at a staffing firm?

Self-starter, personable, and disciplined.

What advice would you give to someone interested in pursuing a career at a staffing agency?

Be prepared to roll with the punches because the lows will be low, but the highs are a good time.

Tell us more about your professional background. What led you to pursue a career at a recruitment company?

I grew up very independent and self-reliant on my own income at a young age. Matching that hunger with a hospitable personality really helped me find a good match that feeds off of my strengths.

What’s the most important piece of professional/career advice you’ve ever received?

It’s okay if you made the wrong turn into a bad job or a bad career. Everyone deserves a mess up; that’s where you ugly cry, make moves for yourself, learn from your experience, and move on.

What would you say are the top five benefits to working at Vaco versus other staffing companies?

I can say this because I have worked at other staffing companies before.

  1. The autonomy and independence leadership instills from day one.
  2. The people here. Everyone around you wants the same outcome, but also wants to have a good time enjoying the ride.
  3. The culture here!
  4. The opportunity for success. The relationships and deep networks are unmatched.
  5. The resources we are provided. Vaco makes sure you have all the tools for success.

We know Vaco is your dream job, but if you could do another job for just one day, what would it be?

I’d love to be a hot air balloon captain for a day!
