What's your favorite part of your job?
My favorite part about being a recruiting coordinator at Instawork is the developmental opportunities Instawork provides by allowing me to participate in events, such our partnership with Hiring Our Heroes to connect members of the military community with jobs.
I'm proud to be a veteran and my 16 years of military background enables me to understand military jargon and provide guidance to military, veterans and spouses interested in a career at Instawork!
Additionally, working with members of my team, such as Albert Delgado and Kenia Garcia, makes me feel at home. The camaraderie within the team is similar to my days of active duty with the California Army National Guard.
What is one piece of “work from home” equipment you couldn’t live without?
It would be tough for me to live without my oversize monitor!
