Recruiter: Mike Ingelido
Years at GHS: 6+
Title: Operations and Training Manager

How did you end up in Recruiting? Fell in love with recruiting new members to my fraternity and pursued it further upon graduation from college.

What is the best thing about your job? The GHS team is the best. Placing a great candidate in a great job is a close second.

What is something you have you always wanted to do? Skydive in Hawaii

If you could have a super hero power, what would it be and why? Either super-speed or the ability to fly. Super-speed would be so I can accomplish more in less time and have more time for myself. Flight would be so I could see the world easier, and just float around all the time.

What’s the best advice you can give to a candidate that is searching for a new job? Be honest with your recruiter and return calls promptly. Don’t be late to an interview!

What would you sing at karaoke and why?  Lose Yourself by Eminem. It talks about giving your dream your all in order to be successful and that is quite inspiring.

How do you balance life and work? Try and treat myself when I can. If you make work a priority, it affords you the opportunity to have a good life outside of work.

What was one of your favorite moments as a Recruiter? Filling a two different client’s job openings with awesome candidates both in the same day: I’ll never forget it.

What was the best concert you’ve seen live? Justin Timberlake at The Q.

Describe a success story you’ve had with one of your candidates or clients: There has been numerous times where a candidate was unsure about an particular job opening for one reason or another. Whether it be the location, the position itself or the organization. After convincing them to do a phone interview and speak to the hiring managers, it changed their point of view, got them interested in doing a on-site interview and eventually accepting the position. Having them come back and thank you for convincing them to do the interview in the first place is a very satisfying feeling, knowing you were able to help change someone’s perception and outlook in a positive manner.
