Hometown: Boynton Beach, Florida
I'm a recruiter at Oxford Global Resources. I deliver individual consultants, teams of experts and support for full projects to my clients.
Oxford has been around over 30 years and has offices across Europe and North America.
I wish I would have known the importance of being faithful in the small things. Completing trivial and monotonous tasks will create lifelong habits that make you a success in any area. In my previous role to Oxford, I had the privilege to serve in an environment where I was continually asked to do tasks that were both out of my comfort zone and things people will probably never see or notice. I don't focus on the size of the task, but rather doing what is necessary to reach the final goal.
In college, I wish I would have been faithful to every assignment. It is easy to concentrate on the big test or paper that is looming, but those small reading assignments are the ones that could provide a piece of information that could change your life.
"...I can be the proponent to create community in any environment."
PBA showed me that to fulfull goals, it's very important to be surrounded by a strong, supportive community. I spent every day on campus with some of my best friends. From Bible studies, to pickup ball, to attending sports games and unplanned activities, we grew together in incredible ways. I took this attitude to the office, knowing that I can be the proponent to create community in any environment.
Listen to the people who know more and are wise from experience. Ask them questions and take their advice. That's how I transitioned from a vocational ministry job to a corporate position. Always be humble, learn what your bosses want and then deliver daily.
At Oxford I have a great friend who shows me the ropes of working at a large IT staffing firm. Every day, he advises me on how to connect with my companies and warns me of potential pitfalls. He tells me how to stay grounded through success and failure. He is a wonderful mentor.
