5 things you didn’t know about me
I spent a day on a real Canadian Navy ship and shot a 50 calibre rifle (into the ocean) as part of HR diversity training. Yes it was scary, but I felt protected by our amazing men and women. I'm passionate about supporting these noble humans to re-integrate back into civilian life once they leave service. Please hire our veterans!
My heart is split between two countries at opposite ends of the earth: Canada and Australia. Although I'm a proud Canuck, I lived in Australia for 5 years. Shrimp on the barbie anyone?
I'm a hockey nut. My first job was with the Toronto Maple Leafs hockey club. In my interview, my boss asked, "why do you want to work here?" I looked at him like Jennifer Grey first looked at Patrick Swayze in Dirty Dancing. She said; "I carried the watermelon", and I said; "because it's the Leafs!!" Magically, my die-hard fandom worked!
I've interviewed over 10,000 job candidates in my HR banking career. Hiring stats if you're curious: 10%. My number one tip is to be clear on what lights you up, and pursue that with relentless passion.
If I didn't do what I do now, I would have wanted to become a professional dancer. The furthest I ever took it was auditioning and appearing on a Canadian TV show called Electric Circus in the 90's.
