It’s truly a team effort here at SquadBuilders, so each month, we’ve decided to feature one of our staffers. Today, you’ll meet Tessa Jones from our Travel Nurse DIvision through this Q&A session, and we hope you enjoy getting to know everybody on the team!
What do I love about SquadBuilders?
I love working at SquadBuilders because it is so refreshing to work for a company where they really do care about you as an individual and you are not just another employee. They are interested in what I have going on outside of work and with my personal well-being. With that being said, they have found a way to balance this with a great amount of professionalism and drive for success that creates an amazing work culture. I enjoy coming to work each and every day and that is what is most important to me. I have never worked at a company with such a great working environment.
How many years of recruiting experience?
5 years of recruiting student athletes for various universities
2 years of recruiting in the IT and Healthcare Industries
Who is my hero?
My hero(s) are my parents. They showed me growing up what it means to work hard and that by doing so you can make the life you want for you and those you love. Everyone has obstacles and hard times in their lives but how you choose to overcome these is what matters most. My goal is to work hard and provide the type of life they were able to offer me to my family and those dear to me.
What book am I reading?
It is the autobiography of Keith Richards and the Rolling Stones told from his perspective. I have a love for classic rock and find that time in the history of music so interesting.
KU or Mizzou?
2 interesting things about me:
1) I was a collegiate volleyball player and 3-time all American
2) I could eat Mexican food for every meal every day
Favorite BBQ in KC?
Favorite website or app?
Pinterest: It has everything you need; decorating ideas, recipes, fashion, DIY ideas, ect… I will say, I have had some fails in the recipe department so make sure you read closely and look at the comments section lol
What song best describes my work ethic?
Hmmmm this is a tough one…. After much thought I have to go with
“With A Little Help From My Friends” (The Beatles version not the Joe Cocker one) because everything I do is made possible by everyone’s help in the office and I could not have asked for a better support group both in my colleagues and my family/friends.
What do I want people to know about SquadBuilders and myself?
I want people to know that this company really is different than any other staffing company they may have worked with. We go the extra mile to make sure you have the best experience possible. We treat people how we would want to be treated. Finding a job is a very stressful, serious, and strenuous process; we do everything in our power to lessen this as much as possible. We are a family owned company that has been around for 20+ years; the owners care about this company and are in the office every single day working themselves to insure the company’s success. Our reputation is our greatest tool.
