Do you hit the snooze button or wake up immediately?
I wake up immediately – my partner has a sleep disorder (Idiopathic Hypersomnia) which means he always feels like he has been awake for 3 days. He can be difficult to wake up – sometimes it takes me 45 minutes plus to do so – so I have to be the responsible adult in the morning!
Would you say you are more of an extrovert or an introvert?
I am an extroverted introvert.
So I like people watching, meeting new people and hearing their life stories, but need time to recharge. I sometimes need time to warm up in social situations, and I find it difficult to force small talk. It’s far easier for me to say what’s on my mind.
What does the career highlight you are most proud of?
The fact I’ve last 20 years as a recruiter!
What originally got you interested in recruitment?
I started out doing after hours when I had a small baby and it’s gone from there.
What advice do you have for someone new to the industry?
You need to be resilient and learn as much as you can from those around you. Don’t take it personally when things don’t work out – dealing with people is challenging. But rewarding!
Is there a quote that motivates you?
"You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jellybeans." - Ronald Reagan.
What was your first job?
Working in a clothing shop in Wynnum Central at 13.
