In the 14 months since Senior Consultant, Abbey Askotzky joined our team in the US, she has positively contributed to both our company culture and our CSR Program.
Abbey partnered with Bank of America to co-host an event at the Ronald McDonald House, and was a lead contributor to a recent event in our Chicago office to help give resume and interview coaching to those in need.
Abbey has a big heart and genuinely cares about the success of the team and those around her. We sat down with her recently to ask her what it means to work in recruitment.
How would you describe your job to someone who doesn’t work in recruitment?
“I am something like a matchmaker with our clients in the banking and finance industry and the talent in the market.”
What are you most passionate about in your job?
“Mostly coming up with new innovative ideas for hiring and helping our customers to reach their business and career ambitions. I like to think outside the box.”
You are actively supporting our CSR Program. How important is it that you can help others as part of your job?
“Helping others is a big part of why I love my job. The best thing about it is when I’m able to partner with our clients and candidates to make an impact on the community here in Chicago.”
What does it mean to you that your employer actively supports CSR initiatives?
“Working with people that share the same values and passions means a lot to me. It connects our team with our clients beyond the traditional transaction.”
What aspect of your job as a recruiter do you like the most?
“When working with clients I describe the benefits of working with us recruiters and remind them that by letting us find their candidates, they can focus on the true passion in their job. Therefore, this partnership allows them to reach their own goals easier and more efficiently.”
What industry do you recruit for and how does this industry influence society and the way we live?
“I recruit for Huxley, our Banking & Financial services brand. My clients are focused on profits. Outside of Silicon Valley, this is the industry where cutting edge technology lives and thrives. The tech in this industry results in substantial amounts of money being made and lost every day. The success of the firms we work with directly affects the economy.”
Why are you proud to be part of this industry?
“I am proud to be a part of this industry because it helps shape the economy we live in.”
