Emily Pacanza Promoted to Senior Internal Recruiter

October 12, 2021


Emily Pacanza started with ALKU in 2019 as an Internal Recruiter, calling interns, entry-level, and full-time candidates. Since the beginning, Emily has consistently led the charge with metrics and quickly built relationships internally with ALKU’s hiring managers. She is constantly willing to help where help is needed and often says, “you tell me where I’m needed, and I will be there.” This is just a small example of the dedication and commitment Emily displays daily.

Emily is energetic, passionate, and a warm welcome to internal candidates both over the phone and in person. To this day, Emily works consistently to exceed her metrics and leads by example, which speaks for itself. Since her start as an Internal Recruiter, she is responsible for hiring over 100 full-time revenue employees, over 150 interns, and numerous members of ALKU’s Corporate team.

Emily has done it all – from hiring interns to getting new hires slated to start in our summer hiring classes, to working with post-graduate applicants. She is a leading producer and someone whom new hires and members of the Internal Recruiting team gravitate towards for help, advice, and questions. Emily is naturally competitive but is also always the first to celebrate her teammates’ successes, no matter how big or small.

With this and much more, ALKU is thrilled to announce the promotion of Emily Pacanza to Senior Internal Recruiter! In her new role, Emily will continue to produce as an individual contributor and lead by example daily. She will help to train new members of the Internal Recruiting team, mentor her team’s interns, and be a reliable resource to other Internal Recruiters.

Congratulations, Emily! We cannot wait to see where you take this role!

“Emily Pacanza! What would the ALKrew do without her? Congratulations to one of the most hard-working employees I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Emily has truly worked to earn this promotion since day one. From the time (early mornings and late nights) that Emily has put in, to the amount of consistent effort given by Emily daily, to how genuine Emily is when working with candidates, this promotion is one that just makes sense. Emily is one of the most reliable employees I have worked alongside – when Emily says she’ll get something done, it is going to get done with maximum effort. She is a perfect example of someone who has led the charge in metrics since the very beginning and continues to do so, all while being a go-to for other Internal Recruiters. To her peers, Emily is approachable, helpful, and motivating to work with. To me, as Emily’s manager, Emily is someone who motivates and inspires me to work as hard as I possibly can day in and day out. Emily – you are a force to be reckoned with. From the days of me putting hard copy resumes on your desk, to watching you grow into the employee you are today – thank you for all you have done and continue to do for the Internal Recruiting team and ALKU as a whole. Congratulations on this well-deserved promotion. Thank you for being such an important part of our team!” – Delaney Bradley, Internal Recruiting Manager

“I was so incredibly honored and proud when Delaney reached out to me to talk about Emily. I knew Emily would be incredibly special the first time I met her. I remember the day as if it was yesterday, Emily was brand new to ALKU and when I came into the office that morning, she was already there and ripping dials at 7:30 in the morning. I thought to myself “Wow, this girl is a hustler”… That day continued and I heard that same voice behind me. It was well after 6:00 PM, and her team was already gone and there Emily is, continuing to rip dials as if she hadn’t already been doing that for the past 10+ hours. Emily to this day is someone I truly think is one of the best “hustlers” in this company. She adopted that mentality “First person in, last person out” and I think that speaks volumes to her character. Also, Emily takes so much pride in what she does. She is always trying to develop her skills and see how she can help grow herself and ALKU as a whole. Her commitment to perfection coupled with her work ethic makes her a no-brainer when it comes to this promotion. Emily, you are a perfect example of what it looks like to Have Fun Working Hard ™. The future of this company is so bright with you helping us grow! Congrats Emily, I know this won’t be the last time we hear about you,”- Alex Parenteau, Medical Device QVC Recruiting Manager

“Where do you start with someone like Emily? I can say with confidence that I speak for everyone at ALKU in saying she is an absolute rock star, and we are very fortunate to have her be the one recruiting the future leaders for the ALKrew! It’s rare to work with someone who impresses you every time you coordinate with them, especially at a company like ours that is full of top talent. Day-in and day-out, she exemplifies those outlier characteristics that make her so great and constantly finds a way to stick out amongst the crowd. Unbelievable if you ask me. What stands out most with Emily is that she is so focused on her work and driven to be the best version of herself no matter what. The passion and desire she brings to ALKU every day are second-to-none, and it is easy to see why she finds so much success in her role. Emily – your excellence in your work will continue to take you to the moon, and this promotion is super deserving of one of my favorite people here at ALKU. Thank you for all you do and the support you provide so many. To the next step in your career, CHEERS!” – Tyler Bush, Director of Healthcare IT Recruiting
