Episode Transcript

We’re going to start things off with our absolute favorite segment. We have been having so much fun with this, the recruiter of the week. So without further ado, we’ll bring in Phil from Atlanta.

Hey Phil! Hey, how are you guys? We’re doing good. How are you?

Doing well. Bringing the Atlanta weather to Chicago, please. Bring it our way, we’re waiting for it. It’s a great day down here too.

It always is. I feel like every time we chat Phil, you’re just throwing the nice weather in my face. I guess we choose where we live. So kudos to you Phil, kudos to you. I’m going to be jealous in the summer. There you go. It’s true. Well, thank you so much for joining us. Phil, do you know how our rapid fire questions game works? I think so. Okay, well, just in case, and if you’re new to the Hirewell update, for those of you watching, we’ll put two minutes on the clock and Phil, we will ask you questions and you will answer as many questions as you can in those two minutes.

So answer them thoughtfully but quickly. Challenge accepted. Are you ready to roll? Ryan’s going to ask you your first question in three, two, go. Phil how long have you been with Hirewell and what team are you on? So I’ve been with Hirewell a little bit more than three years. I moved to Atlanta to open up the Atlanta office,

which we are kind of our own team down here and we support kind of all the practices in Atlanta, but mostly focusing on tech. Awesome. Over three years, go get that backpack Phil! What is your favorite thing about working at Hirewell? I think it’s two fold. The people internally, but also the people externally. You know, really helping change

people’s careers and helping companies reach their goals by bringing great talent. Love it. Absolutely. People, that’s definitely the trending factor over here at Hirewell. So this is a question we haven’t asked many folks, but what’s a hidden talent that you have? Ooh. Uh, oh boy. A loaded one. I like to fashion myself a pretty good snow skier and water skier.

I mean, how much snow skiing are you doing in Atlanta? None. Grew up in Ohio, going out west for quite some time. I love it. I love it. Well, if you weren’t recruiting, what would your dream job be? And now you can’t say a professional skier. So my undergraduate degree was architecture and I think it’s kind of twofold.

The UX world really interests me. Obviously our texture of a screen or a furniture design would be awesome. Well, I know who to hit up when I’m trying to figure out new furniture for my next place, for sure. And that’s like an RB thing. Yeah. A hundred percent that’s right up my alley. So we have a lot to discuss.

But in terms of questions here, what’s one food that you can’t live without? Does coffee count? Sure anything but banana flavor counts.

I’m on Don’s team on that one. Another one? This is insane. I can’t believe there’s so many people that work here that are on that train. I’m out.

I’m surprised more people haven’t said coffee. I am too. Coffee’s definitely- can’t live without. Okay. Then quick follow up question. But your time is up, don’t worry you crushed it. How do you take your coffee? Black. Black cold brew. Simple. So coffee, I think I’m keeping them in business. Yeah. We’re all doing our part to help the economy come back, one coffee cup at a time, right?

Yeah. That’s awesome. Well, you absolutely crushed it Phil. I can’t wait to have you out here in Chicago. We’ll do some water skiing. Let’s do a boat day. Water-skiing and cold brew. That’s what we do. If anybody has a boat let me know. Yeah, hit us up. We definitely are looking for one. All right Phil, thanks for joining us. Have a great week.

Bye.

2nd place isn’t the 1st loser

Sorry, Dale Earnhardt “We don’t want her if she’s not excited about us.” No one likes being the 2nd place option. Companies don’t. Neither do job seekers. But is it really that bad? Ego is a hell of a thing. Even the most ...
