WEST VIRGINIA UNIVERSITY - BS IN JOURNALISM
WHEN DID BEGIN WORKING AT DZX?:
- I am responsible for hiring top talent for DXConneX's RPO Client programs.
What Does Your Typical Day Consist Of ?
To me, there is no typical day in Talent Acquisition, which is one of the things I love about the work I do! Every day there is something different, challenging, or exciting; which makes my career all the more rewarding. Not to mention I get the opportunity to really make an impact on people’s lives.
Tell Us A Story About A Specific Project or Client You Worked on That Was Especially Memorable, Unique, Etc.
Each project I have the opportunity to tackle is unique and meaningful in its own way. What is especially memorable to me is the culture that we have throughout DZConneX, Day & Zimmermann, and Yoh. Two weeks into my tenure at DZConneX, I saw a post on LinkedIn by Joe Ritzel, Executive Sponsor of PDARG (People with Disabilities Advocacy Resource Group) – now ADAPT (Abled and Disabled Advocated Partnering Together) seeking a new co-chair. As a person with epilepsy, I am inspired by my story and other people's journeys of bringing their authentic self to work everyday. This was an aha moment for me that I was truly at home and where I belonged career wise!
What Do You Like Best About Work for DZConneX?
The people! My colleagues are the best and they are all very supportive, including leadership! From the get-go, I felt comfortable being open with leadership about my epilepsy and received nothing but compassion in return. At Yoh, I'm seen for my abilities as a recruiter and not for my challenges.
What Does Working for DZConneX Provide You That Other Agencies or Companies Do Not?
I now appreciate real work life balance with the flexibility Yoh offers to work remotely. This truly allows me to take better care of myself and spend more time with my family. I also feel empowered to make decisions and voice my opinion with leadership. I sense I truly have a voice, no matter right or wrong, and that I am being listened to.
What is Your Favorite Activity To Do Outside of Work at DZConneX?
I love to spend as much time with my husband and three children as possible. Life is short, take advantage of the time you have to make memories with the ones you love.
Global Vice President, Managed Services, DZConneX
WINTHROP UNIVERSITY - BS IN BIOLOGY
WHEN DID BEGIN WORKING AT DZX?:
- I’m the Global Senior Director of Client Services at DZConneX, and I oversee customers’ contingent labor workers outsourced to our company. I provide strategic guidance in order to ensure a successful partnership between us and the customers we serve.
What Do You Like Best About Working For DZConneX?
No two days are ever the same at DZX. Every day that I come to work, there’s a new challenge or a new opportunity to do something interesting or exciting. I’m given the opportunity to think outside of the box, to learn, to grow, and to do different things than you might think a traditional job entails. We talk a lot about innovation here, and I think a lot of great ideas come from thinking about problems or opportunities in a different way.
Why Did You Choose To Work For DZConneX?
As everyone knows, there are similar organizations out there where I could be doing the same thing. I tell people time and time again that one of the reasons why I stay with DZX is because, as our VP of sales mentions many times, we're a hidden gem in the industry. The organization's commitment to talent is what has kept me here for over 20 years. Here, I feel like I am making a contribution and a difference.
Are There Any Interesting Stories You Can Share About Your Time At DZConneX?
At our 2000 – 2001 annual meeting in Georgia, I invited my sponsor - the people who oversee our program for our customer - to sit on the customer panel. They were asking him various questions and every answer was, "I go to Marcia." This experience drove home the fact that my customers should be able to come to me and know that I will get any issue resolved.
When the CEO of Day & Zimmermann hears your customers talk about you in that way, it really sets the stage for you to ensure that you do what you say and deliver on your commitments. At that moment, I really understood the impact of what we do for our customers and it really set the foundation for my commitment to DZX and my current and future customers. That was my goal as a program manager and continues to be my goal today as I evolve.
