Approach and Specialties
Jodi’s passion for collaborating with her clients has allowed them to find the right candidates across numerous levels and functions within organizations, including marketing, finance, business development, sales, human resources, IT, product management, and operations.
Jodi’s experience has grown out of both in-house and executive search experience, and she specializes in full recruitment lifecycle, client management, and team management.
Jodi is one of the most talented senior recruiters that I have had the privilege to work with. Jodi understands the importance of collaborating with HR with one shared goal in mind, which is bringing the most qualified candidates with the best cultural fit into the organization. Jodi understands that the employee experience begins with the recruitment process, and she treats each and every candidate respectfully. She fosters very strong relationships with her hiring managers and truly cares about the quality of candidates that she introduces to them. She is responsive, articulate, and execution oriented. Jodi has constantly exceeded my expectations, as her manager and her client. I’m convinced that Jodi will be successful wherever she goes.
Jodi is simply a terrific recruiter. She is great at understanding the needs of hiring managers, identifying candidates, managing the interviewing process efficiently and closing the deal. I believe Jodi would be an asset to any company, large or small, looking to broaden and deepen a workforce.
Jodi is a passionate and effective sleuth for talent. I challenge her with hard to find position requirements and she reciprocates with a plethora of well screened, talented candidates. She makes it seem easy and fun (which is farthest from reality).
Jodi’s credibility as a recruiting leader was very evident the minute I walked into Better Place. She clearly develops strong relationships and has the respect of the entire team which made it so much easier for me to ramp up and deliver what the business needed.
