1. How did you come to work at Treeline?
Four and a half years ago I was looking to leave an organizational consulting firm, after having watched three layoffs dismantle the sales team as I had known it. Honestly, I had no idea what I wanted to do next. I thought maybe software sales, maybe something in finance? I was working with a few recruiters and after hearing about several lack luster opportunities, I was finally introduced to Treeline. I accepted the job offer after a whirlwind of interviews and I felt like I was completely stepping into the dark. But I was sure about my belief that this company was going somewhere and I had to be a part of it.
2. What is the best thing about your job/company?
The culture. I love my job and can say that I look forward to going into work every day. Our culture is unlike any other company I've worked for or witnessed. We are competitive and we work hard but we truly all like each other. Robust dialog, healthy competition, collaboration are all things that are encouraged and practiced on a daily basis. Treeline is far more than just a job to me...it's a passion, a family. It's exactly what I should be doing.
3. What advice would you give job seekers in this market?
Don't underestimate the impact of going to an interview well prepared. Treat your interview like a sales call. Research your prospect, ask questions to understand the problem they are trying to solve. Explain your features and benefits as a candidate and demonstrate how that "experience" is a solution to their problem. Be likable and finally, ask for the job.
4. What is your favorite hobby?
Exercise. I love to set goals and challenge myself physically. A group of my friends and I are all training for a sprint triathlon. The benefits of exercise physically and psychologically are endless.
5. What is your favorite quote?
"Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen hard. Practice wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Appreciate your friends. Continue to learn. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is." Mary Anne Radmacher
