Get to Know Julie

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

It’s rewarding to match someone to their dream job with a company that values them. Also, it’s nice knowing what’s going on in the market. 

What is the most rewarding part of being in a business development role?

The relationships I build and the knowledge I gain from each and every client. I love learning about new industries, how they tick, and what makes people successful.  It is like continuing education for me and I live for it.

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

Organization first and foremost.  Also, the ability to be adaptable and to have the gift of connecting with people on a very personal level.

What is something you can do better than anyone else you know? 

I can’t give my secrets away 😊

What is one thing you enjoyed learning since joining Vaco?

Since I’ve been with Vaco for almost 16 years, I have had the amazing privilege to see a business grow from literally the ground up. I have watched people transform, including myself, from very green rookies to a more confident business partner.  It’s been beautiful and extremely rewarding.  

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

To sell beach chairs and umbrellas. I want to be a beach bum.
