After growing up in New Mexico, I decided to take the plunge, uproot my life, and try and "make it" in the Big Apple. I moved to New York in 2010 and jumped into the world of startups. I enjoy the challenges that come with working in a small, growing company, and being a part of the team building an operation from the ground, up.
I'm excited to now be at Averity, a technology staffing firm revolutionizing the way in which skilled talent is hired, while providing an atmosphere for its employees to thrive in an innovative team environment.
Khaleesi @ Averity began out of the desire to create a different recruitment firm in New York City that not only provides the highest level of service to its clients and candidates, but also creates a positive team-oriented work environment where Together Everyone Achieves More. The success is based heavily on the production of the team, not just the individual, creating a culture based on core values of communication, ethics, innovation, positive-energy and delivery. At Averity, if the team succeeds, then we all succeed.
We are genuine. This is not a boiler room, and there are no cubes. This is team collaboration at its finest. We believe in words like strategy, approach, relationship and understanding. We’ve invested an incredible amount into advertising and most any service in the industry to give us the best opportunity to be successful.
While Averity conquers the New York City technology market, as its Khalessi I lead all back-office operations to best enable our Talent Advocates for success. I am responsible for processing payroll, for both employees and consultants, all Accounts Payable and Receivables, accounting with Quickbooks, new hire on-boarding and setup, benefit provider management, and website administration. From August 2014 to Present (1 year 5 months) Greater New York City AreaOffice Manager & Event Coordinator @ She Creates Change is a life-coaching startup that educates women on how to best manage their life both personally and professionally and discover what it takes to create a life based on their authentic self. They empower women to create a career where they are fully engaged in life and make a meaningful contribution in the world. Ultimately they are igniting a movement, compelling women to take action, and blaze their path with passion.
I was hired to be their Office Manager & Event Coordinator, directly supporting the Director of Marketing and Chief Communications Officer. I managed day-to-day operations and created the company’s hard-copy and digital filing systems.
I also was the operational coordinator for the company’s signature revenue-generating coaching program, called JumpStart CHANGE. I managed on-boarding of new clients, including updating the client database, processing client receivables, and sending “welcome” emails. I was required to ensure that all materials were ready prior to classes, and managed scheduling for client consultations.
As Event Coordinator I managed all marketing and sales events, supported each event facilitator and assisted with program sales. Finally, I led vendor selection and budgeting process for venues, catering, and online webcasting platforms. From September 2012 to February 2013 (6 months) Greater New York City AreaSenior Recruiter @ CyberCoders is a premier, national recruiting and job search firm. The company opened its first New York City office in November 2011 and I was recruited to be its first employee.
Just as my prior role, as a Senior Recruiter, I was responsible for both recruiting and business development. I was focused on managing lead flow and producing new business; I managed contract negotiations with dozens of clients and recruited new candidates on a daily basis.
Furthermore, given that the office was a startup, I assisted the Director with day-to-day operations, helped onboard new employees, and trained them on the proprietary ATS. From December 2011 to August 2012 (9 months) Greater New York City AreaRelationship Manager @ Talener Group is a technology staffing firm based in New York, with offices in San Francisco and Los Angeles, as well. I joined Talener as it started to experience a period of growth- I helped start the 4th placement team in New York, specifically focusing on MSFT technologies (C#, .NET, ASP, SQL Server). While the other teams in company had been established for several years, Talener had yet to start a team to specialize in MSFT-related placement.
As a Relationship Manager, my responsibilities included both recruiting and business development. About 65-75% of my time was focused on sourcing for new companies to work with, following-up on leads, and initiating the business relationship between Talener and our clients.
During my time at Talener I was able to successfully build relationships with a wide-variety of companies. These companies ranged from startups to Fortune 500 organizations, public and private companies; the relationships were strong to the point where multiple teams within Talener were able to do deals with them, as well.
I worked on a brand-new placement team from Day 1; my production accounted for about 35% of the team's net revenues, totaling about $300,000 across a team of 5 sales people. From September 2010 to December 2011 (1 year 4 months) Greater New York City AreaExecutive Assistant to the CEO @ Before working in the technology industry, I was an Executive Assistant at the Elderly Housing Development and Operations Corporation ("EHDOC"). I was responsible for managing the CEO's meeting and travel schedule, maintaining his files and databases related to his work, organizing board meetings, and composing correspondence on his behalf.
In addition, I planned, supervised and conducted multi-state corporate events, including senior staff retreats, holiday parties and 4-day annual training conferences for 150+ employees and VIPs. I was responsible for coordinating all logistics beginning to end, from preparing the agenda, researching venues and negotiating vendor contracts to managing the budget, and directing on-site setup.
One of the biggest projects I was involved in was the research and development of 200+ page applications for monthly requisitions to obtain grant money from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. From 2006 to 2007 (1 year) Miami/Fort Lauderdale Area
