Fun place to work with great management team.
Pros: benefits, good environment, mangement
Cons: base salary
A typical day at Opti was usually split up into two parts, the marketing and the recruiting. In the morning I would cold call and market my top candidates to companies across Anchorage and try to find open jobs to place them. The afternoon consisted of recruiting qualified candidates in to interview with me for a potential job opening. I learned numerous things such as how to track candidates, time management, cold calling, internet recruiting and so much more. Management was phenomenal, they really take the time to develop a personal relationship with each of their employees but also give you free space to develop your division with any micromanaging involved. My co-workers were also great people, it was a positive environment and every seemed to genuinely care about others success. The hardest part of the job would have to have been the cold calling although I did develop fearlessness of the phone after awhile, I think the only way to be successful when cold calling is to be confident and not be afraid to get hung up on. The most enjoyable part of the job was the fact that I was helping out the local community by providing work to wonderful people, it really made the job satisfying.
