I worked with Christie twice as a recruiter. First, at Robert Half International (RHI) where Christie was Rookie of the Year and experienced fast growth to The Creative Group. Second, I referred her to the Talent Acquisition Lead at Rosetta to help out as a contractor when we were experiencing some high volume. Christie builds fast rapport with candidates and really gets things done!
