Employee Spotlight: Geoff Farwell

Every two weeks, we highlight one of our amazing recruiters so you can get to know the Morgan Hunter team a little bit better. This week we spoke with the Senior Sales, Marketing & Advertising Recruiter Geoff Farwell!


What did you do before you were a recruiter with Morgan Hunter?

I have been in staffing since 2011.

Where did you go to college?

University of Kansas

What did you earn your bachelor’s degree in and why?

I studied Health & Exercise Science. At the time I was extremely interested in fitness and physiology, so it was easy to maintain interest in the classroom. However, it was clear by my senior year that I would not be pursuing a profession related to that field as sales had peaked my interest.

What is your favorite ‘90s jam?

Close call – “Rosa Parks” by Outkast would have to top that list for me, but “Going back to Cali” by Biggie and “Down” by 311 would both be on the podium.

What would I find in your refrigerator right now?

Gogurts, applesauce, fruit, bell peppers, leftover chicken noodle soup, Siracha, raspberry compost, jalapenos, Minute Maid, Muscle Milks (my wife works out), jelly, colby cheese, Mexican blend of shredded cheese, cream cheese, minced garlic, tortillas, Hershey syrup, skim milk, lettuce, mustard, bread, buns, asparagus, tuna kits, soy sauce, baby carrots, ranch dressing, vinaigrette, eggs, and a thermometer – that’s all I can think of off the top of my head.

If you won $100 million in the lottery, what would you spend your money on?

I would overpay for a large apartment complex in a college town, a QuickTrip, and The Woodlands race track in KCK. From there I would start to spend and share aggressively.

What would you do if you were given a month sabbatical from work?

Given the nature of our business, I would be very concerned! Assuming it was mandatory, I would map out a road trip to take my kiddo to see as many baseball games at different stadiums as I could in that time frame.

If we were to open your snack drawer, what would we find?

Flossers and receipts.

What should employers expect in the 2018 market?

When it comes to hiring, employers can expect candidates to have multiple opportunities and offers at once, so be aggressive in your hiring process. Also, it will remain a candidate market this year, so leadership will be extremely important for retention of employees. They should also expect us to do an efficient job for them when they decide to partner with us to find talent as they grow.

What should job seekers know about the 2018 job market?

The demand for quality people in every field is greater than the supply of quality people in the market. Even if you are happy in your role, I think it is extremely smart to have a fully updated resume and Linkedin profile should the next fantastic opportunity come knocking on your door.

If you could provide one tip to job seekers what would it be?

Network with a purpose and be visible online.
