What roles do you help hire for?

I’m in marketing so I don’t recruit, silly!

What did you do before Captivate Talent?

Even though I don't have any direct recruiting experience, I've previously spent almost 2 years leading marketing for a company that sold hiring software.

My most recent role was helping to grow Trend, an influencer marketing platform from 6 paying customers to 400 in less than a year!

Tell us about your recent placements!

What's your best candidate tip?

One of the best things you can do when you're interviewing? Send a thank you note after your interview! It's something that's easy but so often missed!

A good thank you note thanks the interviewer, restates why you're interested in the role, and why you think you'd be a good fit! Keep it short though - 3-5 sentences max!

What's your best tip for companies hiring?

Strict qualifications for a role can actually do more harm to your candidate pipeline than good. While it's important to have filters to weed out bad applicants, be willing to be a little flexible when you get applications that might not match all of the qualifications.

You might just make your best next hire because of it!

Meet the rest of the Captivate Talent team!

When you work with Captivate Talent, you work with our whole team!

We don't just assign you to a recruiter and leave it at that.

Part of our mission is to give you access to our entire team's recruiting experience, not just the recruiter that you're working with!

Meet the team!
