One of the reasons we created RecruitLoop was to provide recruiters with the ability to work from anywhere in the world … literally.
In this post, I’m shining the Recruiter Spotlight on another awesome Looper who truly embraces the ability to work virtually. All her clients are in Australia … and let’s just say Rebecca is not!
In all the years I have known her (and we have yet to actually meet in person … hopefully one day soon, Bec!), she has either been in Wales or in Atlanta.
Did I mention that all her clients are actually in Australia?
With all the technology and communication tools available today, Rebecca is still able to meet with her clients regularly, participate in our regular recruiter community calls (in both hemispheres!), and build a very successful business.
I know one of the questions we ask Loopers in their spotlight questionnaire is, “What is your funniest RecruitLoop moment?” … but for me, seriously one of my funniest RecruitLoop moments was preparing for one of our sourcing webinars, and while we were doing our tech run-through Rebecca was puffing on a cigarette while sipping a glass of red wine! Priceless!
So without any further ado, let’s shine the spotlight on Rebecca Martinez, one of our awesome recruiters working in Sydney … or is it really Atlanta, Georgia?
Shhh! That might be her little secret. Although anyone who has ever received an email from this awesome Talent Strategist will notice these words at the bottom of her email signature: “(Please note, I am not available on Mondays)” … which could be a bit of a give-away!
