Our 2018 period 2 trophy winner!

 

Congratulations on winning the OST TROPHY, for most applicant deals, for his second time since joining OST 4 years ago! We sat down with Mike to ask him a few questions about his time at OST. See what he said below! 

 

How long have you been working at OST, Mike?

 

Next year marks my four year anniversary at OST! 

 

What is your favorite thing about being a recruiter?

 

     My favorite thing about being a recruiter is being able to help people advance their career.

 

What is your least favorite thing about being a recruiter?

 

A lot of the job is out of your control as a recruiter and losing a potential offer definitely hurts the most. 

 

What do you love most about OST (optional)

 

The flexibility. They have been great about allowing me to run my own desk and allow me to work flexible hours when needed.

 

What is your proudest moment at OST?

 

      The first time I won the trophy for most applicant deals in 2016! 

 

What is the most rewarding part of the job?

 

      Knowing that I can be successful in NYC without an IVY League degree.

 

What advice do you have for prospective OST recruiters?

 

      Prepare to work hard and set your goals. This industry is primarily based on relationships with applicants and clients. It’s a marathon, not a sprint, so don’t get discouraged quickly and learn from your mistakes. If you put in the effort, it will pay out in the end.
