Welcome to #WeAreGreenKey, where we shine a spotlight on our powerhouse recruiting team.
We had a chat with Sam Leveille, Staffing Manager on the Architecture & Engineering team at Green Key. Promoted just this past April, Sam is excited to continue advancing in her career and help shape and grow her team in the process.
What first sparked your interest in recruiting?
My college roommate worked for a recruiting agency after we graduated. At the time, I had a degree in Psychology and knew I wanted a career where I could help people. My friend convinced me to send my resume in and I spent a half day at their office, which instantly pulled me in. That was my first exposure to technical recruiting. I spent over two years there and came to Green Key last July.
What does training look like on the Architecture & Engineering team?
In recruiting, you learn better by doing. So while everyone on the team does their mandatory modules and role playing, our new hires get started in the field pretty quickly. Once they get familiar with Green Key’s software and technology, we don’t micromanage. We give you the tools and help you grow.
What keeps you coming back to recruiting every day?
I love being able to help people. As with any industry, recruiting has its ups and downs. It can be a rollercoaster. But those times when you hear more about a candidate’s story or how you financially improved their lives, that’s when it feels rewarding. At the end of the day, we’re changing these people’s lives, even if we don’t realize it.
Why should someone want to work on the Architecture & Engineering team at Green Key?
It’s a very fun, tight dynamic and we all get along really well. Everyone cares for one another and is rooting for each other to succeed. At the same time, our team has grown rapidly over the past year with plans to continue next year.
We saw you got promoted in April…what are your new goals?
With the new role, I’m training the new recruiters and teaching them the ins and outs of the business. I love that I’ve been able to help new hires the same way I was supported when I first came to Green Key. On the other hand, I’ve also been getting some account management and sales experience. So I hope to continue learning and growing from this new promotion.
