When Ruth interviewed with a recruiter from The Execu|Search Group in 2000, she hadn’t initially thought of transitioning into the recruiting business. While she was looking for assistance in finding a new job, her recruiter thought perhaps she had a knack for helping others find work. As a result, she decided to join Execu|Search where she worked for four years as a member of the Office Support and Human Resources Temporary divisions. After a hiatus from the workforce, Ruth returned in 2010 to help build a new office on Long Island, NY. Even though she had anticipated a longer wait before returning to work, she could not pass up the chance to help develop our presence in a new market. Coming back to the organization made her feel at home, and she has since been promoted to Managing Director of Health Services. She has thoroughly enjoyed her time thus far with The Execu|Search Group, and she was happy to share her story: On why she joined The Execu|Search Group… I was instantly attracted to The Execu|Search Group’s overall energy. Everyone believes in a collaborative and supportive culture. Over the years, I have never felt as though I am simply a number to my managers; they truly value what each person can offer and bring to the table. Additionally, you are given the tools and training to be successful, while also being given the freedom to work autonomously. Through the leadership and guidance here, I was able to discover my own strengths and improve my skillset over time. On what she loves about working here… The high energy work environment keeps me going. When I come to work every day, I know it’s going to be fast-paced, and the ever-changing world of healthcare staffing keeps me on my toes. Not only is the work lively, but so are my colleagues. Camaraderie is very prevalent on our team, and we all celebrate each other’s successes. Additionally, I feel lucky to work for such a highly regarded organization that has a real impact on the healthcare industry. People respect The Execu|Search Group, and they know that we can get the job done. On what she enjoys most about her job… I thoroughly enjoy the process of getting to know a new client and developing a relationship with them. I pride myself on being a resource for my clients, and over time, they learn that they can turn to me for insight on job market trends. Most importantly, I enjoy seeing people put to work. Not only do I enjoy seeing my own candidates land a job, but I love seeing my colleagues get a similar satisfaction out of their work as well; it truly creates a positive work environment. On what she thinks sets her apart from others in her field… I learned early in my career that your clients have several different organizations they could partner with. As a result, my ability to provide quality service is crucial to developing positive relationships. Above all, my clients appreciate my responsiveness and attention to detail. They know that I can find the right candidate, and they can approach me anytime, day or night. At the end of the day, my main priority is to provide my clients and candidates with consistent service and the perfect match.
