What is the most rewarding part about working for a recruiting agency?

The most rewarding part of working for a recruiting agency is helping people in all different phases of life find new opportunities and continuously learning from my colleagues every day. It is really gratifying to know how you are positively helping others when they are making career transitions or just need a guide in their job search.

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

Consistency, communication, and a strong ability to form relationships are crucial in being successful when working for a staffing agency. Relationship building is probably the most important because you are building long lasting relationships with candidates while helping them on their career journey. Communication is also key; in order to build that relationship, it is so important to communicate and be informative.

At Vaco, I am a recruiter on our Staffing team. I partner with job seekers who have a background in transactional accounting and office administration.

Work hard, be nice to people, and the worst thing someone can tell you is “no.”
