What’s the #1 quality you feel is important to achieving success in the staffing industry?
I think the top quality to have to achieve success in the staffing industry is tenacity. Whether you’re going through a high or a low, stay focused and keep your eyes on your end goal, and you’ll come out stronger on the other side.
What are the toughest challenges you’ve had at work? The biggest wins?
My biggest wins have been seeing how supportive everyone at AEG is of each other. Every victory is celebrated, and everyone is truly rooting for every single person in the office.
The toughest challenge has been just the lull of IT job orders that we have seen in the first quarter of this year.

What’s the biggest benefit to partnering with a staffing firm in a job search/search for talent?
The biggest benefit for jobseekers is you have someone in your corner when it comes to hitting it off with a client. You have someone who is willing to go to bat for you and present you in a great light!
If you could give one piece of advice to a candidate/client, what would it be?
My biggest piece of advice is keep an open line of communication as often as you can. Keeping all parties involved on the same page makes the entire process so much easier and smoother.
