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 Melissa Rose, Recruiting Manager in our Administrative Division!
What did you do before you were a recruiter with Morgan Hunter?
I graduated college in May and started working at Morgan Hunter in June of 2012. Prior to working at Morgan Hunter, I had a Human Resources internship in healthcare.
Where did you go to college?
K-State! Go Cats!
What did you earn your bachelor’s degree in and why?
I graduated with a dual degree in Human Resources and Business Management. I always thought I would go into nursing, but my dad had me job shadow his Human Resources Director at his company in high school and I decided to change my path. I love helping people and also really enjoy statistics and math, which lead me to get a double major.
What is your favorite ‘90s jam?
My favorite ‘90s jam is any ‘90s country – I love Reba, Shania Twain, Garth Brooks, and Brooks & Dunn to name a few.
What would I find in your refrigerator right now?
Off the top of my head, I believe eggs, bacon, lettuce, celeries, berries, salsa, cheese, and Busch light.
If you won $100 million in the lottery, what would you spend your money on?
With half of the money, I would buy a lake house at Table Rock Lake and a boat and jet skis. I would donate the other half to cancer and dementia/Alzheimer’s research. While serving in the healthcare sector, I witnessed many people struggling with dementia/Alzheimer’s decline. I also have been involved with family members in their brave battles with Cancer. These experiences really opened my eyes to the great need for compassion and support, and I would love to be able to help in this regard.
What would you do if you were given a month sabbatical from work?
I would travel to Greece for two weeks and the rest of my time off I would spend traveling America to see family.
If we were to open your snack drawer, what would we find?
Crystal Light and gum
What should job seekers know about the 2018 job market?
It is a great time to be looking for a new job! The market is hot and it is always good to keep your eyes open to see what else is out there.
If you could provide one tip to job seekers what would it be?
When your interviewing, make sure to bring energy to the interview. You might have a great resume, but the interview is where you sell yourself for the job. Be excited to be there and go deeper into detail explaining the prior companies you worked for and positions you held.
