Career Story: Recruiting And Staffing Coordinator For A Digital Production Company

Recruiting And Staffing Coordinator For A Digital Production Company

Job Title: Recruiting And Staffing Coordinator

Type of Company: My company provides digital production services (websites, banners, software) to medium-to-large corporations.

Education: Associates degree, Business Administration and Linguistics, Universidade Federal do Mato Grosso (Brazil)

Previous Experience: I worked as a recruiter at GoodPeople Staffing and as branch manager for Labor Ready. Prior to that, while in college, I worked in marketing.

Job Tasks: I work as a recruiting and staffing coordinator at avVenta Worldwide. My job is to communicate with the sales team and recruiting department in Costa Rica and identify our staffing needs. I am also responsible for finding new opportunities and analyzing our hiring needs. I search for candidates, whom I interview and screen, and help make hiring decisions. Most of the talent we're looking for consists of software engineers, web developers, quality assurance analysts and administrative personnel. I also assist the executive vice-president of Delivery.

I maintain the data that is crucial to tracking how many positions we have available and how many people we need to fill those positions. I participate in meetings and conference calls every day: calls to the team in Costa Rica and calls to clients. A small part of my job includes translating and proofreading resumes that come from Costa Rica. I make sure to check for grammatical and spelling errors just to make sure our resumes look presentable to the client. This is not a hard job as most of the people we employ in Costa Rica are bilingual and their English skills are superb. Pretty much 75% of my time in the office is spent in front of the computer.

I really enjoy my job and do feel that I contribute to the overall success and growth of this exciting company! The IT industry is a strong industry that has found ways to grow even in a tough economy.

Best and Worst Parts of the Job: The best part of my job is getting to know new people every day, while practicing my Spanish and meeting new challenges. Talking to new people from all over the country is really interesting. It is easy to get to know someone a bit even in a formal phone interview. It is also interesting to learn about their skills and their experience and to analyze how they could contribute to the overall growth of the company.

Worst: Sometimes I feel there are not enough hours in the day to get the job done! Taking calls from home and even doing a few hours of work on a weekend doesn't seem that bad!

Job Tips:
1.Think about your career goals, and then come up with an educational plan which will help you get there. Look for internship opportunities in different areas if you are not sure which career to pursue.

2. Learn a foreign language as employers today really value this asset.

3. Believe in yourself!!!

Additional Thoughts: Study! Employers today really value education. Don't let that slip! :)
