Welcome to #WeAreGreenKey, where we shine a spotlight on the incredible people behind our powerhouse recruiting team. 

Nicole Rusnak is the Director of Green Key Professional Support. She has been a part of the team for nearly half a decade now. 

As the Director of our Professional Support division, Rusnak oversees experienced recruiters who have a comprehensive understanding of the industry and its needs. She helps to maintain exclusive relationships with organizations ranging from small entrepreneurial firms to Fortune 100 companies.  

We interviewed Rusnak about her recruiting journey and experience with the administrative job search. 

What inspired you to pursue a career in recruitment?

My mom was in recruitment! I was almost born to do it. I joined and loved being in recruitment because no day is ever the same. We get to work with such a large variety of clients, candidates, and industries. I am a competitive person, and working in a sales environment is an exciting challenge. 

What sets Green Key apart from other recruiting firms? 

Green Key is different from other firms for a variety of reasons. One of the most important is they care about their employees, invest in employees’ success, and show recognition for their teams’ and individuals’ hard work. 

Where has Green Key provided service that is hard to match in an internal hiring team? 

We provide value at every step of the hiring process to help our clients fill their resourcing needs and assist our candidates in reaching their career goals. We place individuals into administrative, human resource, and marketing roles across the board! 

What are the next steps for candidates interested in expanding their administrative job search? 

Connect with me on LinkedIn, where I regularly post about new administrative job opportunities. And don’t forget to bookmark the Green Key jobs board to help guide your search in the right direction.

How to Find and Own Your Strengths

When you’re at the start of your career or considering a career change, the task of “selling yourself” on a resume, cover letter, or in an interview can often feel overwhelming to some. How do you make yourself stand out?

With some self-reflection, you can discover your top strengths that will help you feel more confident in your job search and point you in the right direction for the best-suited career path for you.

In a recent episode of #GetHired Live, a LinkedIn News weekly live stream, career, and interview coach Kyle Elliott offered tips on how to discover and own your greatness.

Elliott suggests that you reach out to at least three people you’ve collaborated with or worked with in the past and ask them what makes you special. This takes a little bit of vulnerability, but as Brené Brown says in her book Rising Strong, “Vulnerability is not weakness; it’s our greatest measure of courage.” Let the people you reach out to know what you’re trying to achieve and why you’re seeking their insight.

Once you have this information, plot it on one side of a Venn diagram. On the other side of the diagram, put your childhood interests. Notice where the interests overlap and put them in the center of the diagram. These interests are your biggest strengths!

Elliott suggests using these strengths to tell potential employers how you do jobs differently than others. It’s a way to show your unique attributes from a place of authenticity, which often has a more significant impact in an interview than many of the more off-the-cuff strengths like “detail-oriented,” “hardworking,” and “organized.” Allow your unique strengths to illustrate that you are a one-of-a-kind resource.
