A Hospitality Professional's Dream Come True
Corporate Recruiter (Current Employee) – Roanoke, VA – July 28, 2015
A little over two years ago I was a seasoned operations professional with a lot of esteemed titles and companies under my belt. While I was very proud of my accomplishments and the lifestyle that these positions had afforded me over time, I was to the point of despair, regret and was second guessing the choices I had made for the professional path of my life.
Then Gecko Hospitality came along. For the first time in my professional career, I was able to take the scrappy, "learn as you go" mentality I had developed while cutting my teeth in operations and combine it with my formal education and personality to create a "perfect storm" sceanario as a hospitality recruiter.
Starting something new is always a scary proposition, but being mentored by career professionals that had walked in my shoes years earlier made it comfortable and attainable. I have never experienced leadership that was as approachable, empathetic or driven as what I am around now. That leadership has not only become my mentoring rock but also has afforded me a life that I never thought possible. My family loves my career almost as much as I do!
I wake up every day with a desire to jump into action with my next search and am as giddy as a little kid on Christmas trying to find out the results of my current process. I hear a lot of people say, "I love my job because every day is different". In my situation, that really IS the case.
