“CAROLLLLLLLLLL! The LinkedIn Recruiter / Relationship Queen is now a Recruiting Manager! We’ve come a long way from the day you started and wondered if you actually HAD to start talking to people or if you could listen and shadow for a little while longer. The positive energy and upbeat personality that you bring to work day in and day out have made you an absolutely fantastic team member and will make you an even better manager. If you ask anyone internally or externally about Carolyn, there’s one word that is always consistent – Personable. Carolyn has built fantastic relationships with everyone she has ever worked with and never gets flustered when things don’t go her way. You’ve learned so much throughout the years, and it is awesome seeing you continue to pass down that knowledge to everyone around you. Everyone continues to gravitate toward you and your demeanor, and I can not wait to see you succeed as a recruiting manager! Congratulations, Carolyn! You’ve earned it, and I couldn’t be more proud of all you have accomplished and excited for you on this next step!” -Ryan Brennan
“Congratulations, Carolyn, on the promotion! So incredibly happy for you, and this is so, so deserved! Those who started with ALKU in 2020 know how much of a grind it was, and Carolyn is an excellent example of staying true to our process and having consistent success. She has always had a knack for finding stellar candidates, and now, building a team of her own, she is instilling that same process and coaching her recruiting team to do the same.
Carolyn is one of the most positive people I know, an absolute joy every day to work with, and does a tremendous job creating a Have Fun Working Hard® culture. But don’t let that fun-loving personality fool you. She is highly competitive, hardworking, and organized and is a perfect match to help lead and drive the Cerner division to even new heights! She took a flyer on ALKU, moved from Florida to start with us, never looked back, and has had incredible career growth.
So again, Congratulations, Carolyn. So happy for you, and I know how hard you have worked and sacrificed to become a Cerner Recruiting Manager!” -Tim Lysaught
