What is the most rewarding part about your job?
The most rewarding part is that feeling of joy when you help someone land a new job after we’ve worked really hard to find them a new opportunity. It’s also extremely rewarding to get to work alongside some really awesome people here at Vaco.
What’s the secret to a great interview?
The secret to a great interview isn’t a secret at all, it’s just being prepared for the interview. Research on the company in advance, have questions prepared for the hiring team and practicing common interview questions beforehand. If you are prepared you won’t be nervous and can be yourself in the interview. Soft skills and personality are just as important as your qualifications for a position.
What’s the most important piece of professional/career advice you’ve ever received?
Honestly, the advice to always “fail forward” has been life changing. If you make a mistake, take it as a lesson and learn from it so you can grow and evolve. Don’t stay hung up on things and one of our core tenets at Vaco is “fix the problem, not the blame” which will allow you to always work towards solutions.
We know Vaco is your dream job, but if you could do another job for just one day, what would it be?
If I could do another job for one day, I would be a Creative Director for a designer fashion brand.
