As a recruiter, Emille is resilient in her effort to match top talent with their ideal roles, build relationships with candidates and the clients who need them, and be an ambassador for AEG across social platforms. Her favorite part about being on the team is the emphasis on open communication and everyone’s willingness to help each other. Her goal is to make the hiring process as smooth as possible for her candidates, doing everything she can to set them up for success.
Emille attended the Federal University of São Carlos in Brazil, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in social sciences. She moved to the U.S. in 2018, taught herself English, and previously worked as a patient access representative in the healthcare field. She is a bilingual Portuguese-English speaker, and she can also communicate very well in Spanish. Emille is excited to continue learning and growing with the AEG team and in the IT recruiting industry.
As AEG’s Diversity Ambassador, Emille’s mission is to promote, implement, and improve DE&I initiatives among her coworkers and community. To Emille, diversity, equity, and inclusion means being proud of who you are and where you come from. Feeling heard, being valued, and experiencing representation in work and in life is something every individual deserves—regardless of any aspect of their identity.
Her perspective on DE&I dates back to her childhood, as she always wondered why from such an early age she and her peers were put into boxes. This viewpoint inspired her to study social sciences in college and go on to become a social worker; in her home country of Brazil, Emille served under-represented communities by promoting education and career opportunities to local youth.
As an immigrant Latina woman in the US workforce, Emille has faced cultural and linguistic barriers as well as feelings of unworthiness. That’s why she is passionate about using her voice to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion, drawing inspiration from organizations like AEG that share these values and aim to foster a more representative and just society.
