Shannon is the nicest person at MMD, considering how nice we all are, its quite an accomplishment! She comes from a small town in Central Illinois and managed to preserve Midwestern values, she treats every job applicant as a guest in her own home, with genuine hospitality! So, if she is your recruiter don’t you break her heart! If you said you were going to call her back, please do it, otherwise, she will think she must have said something wrong! You will see that she will work hard to make sure that you have a stellar representation!
Shannon is extremely creative; she thinks outside the box and does not give up easily. Despite her young age, she is very well-connected in the Chicago job market because of her passion for networking! In-person or online Shannon is always making friends! She literally found her first job by being social on LinkedIn and reacting to a post from a third connection. This resulted in the beginning of her beloved recruiting career!
In her work approach, she is a “pay it forward” kind of gal, always eager to help when she can. When we asked Shannon why she wants to stay in recruiting in our job interview, we loved her answer! She always wanted to make a career out of helping others build one for themselves. She finds it the most rewarding to be able to help someone progress their career and make a real step forward towards reaching their professional goals!
But if you meet her at one of her outings, you will learn that she is not always so serious! She is upbeat and positive, a real extrovert who recharges from being around people! Shannon is a fashionista who loves all things cheerful, sparkling rosé, concerts, and puppies! She brings a ray of sunshine to any occasion!
