A Little About Me

The one piece of advice I always give to employers or job seekers is: 

Be strategic about your search. Contract and contract-to-permanent roles are sometimes not your end goal, but you can use them strategically. Think about where you want to be in five years and identify which opportunities can help you get there. Perhaps a contract position will add pharmaceutical industry experience to your resume to help you land an interview for a permanent position that you would not have been able to get otherwise. Or, try a contract to permanent role that will let you ensure the company has the environment and culture you want for the long term.

The biggest mistake I see employers or job seekers make is: 

Pursuing too many roles that job seekers are not in love with. It is great to be flexible in your search and consider roles you might not otherwise; however too many interviews can lead to a quick burn out. Your interviews won't be as authentic if you are repeating the same speech with no fresh energy or enthusiasm. Focus on the ones you love and highlight why you're genuinely interested and excited for that specific role with that specific company.

The favorite part of my job is: 

Helping someone find an opportunity they love. I've been told, "you believed in me when I didn't believe in myself," and it is incredible to know that I can make that kind of impact.

My personal interests are: 

Volunteering walking dogs at the MSPCA, relaxing at the beach and playing cards with family (I think learning the game 45s was my rite of passage as a transplant to MA and the Merrimack Valley).
