What was one thing you learned during your internship that helped you the most when you transitioned full-time?
My internship experience taught me many things that I still carry with me in my current role, but one of the main lessons I learned was to trust the process.

When did you begin your full-time ALKU career? What was your first role?
I started my ALKU career on June 15th, 2020, and I was drafted to Workday. Before starting full-time, Workday split into two divisions, and I joined Workday Financials, which was a start-up at that time.
What does a day in your role look like?
A day in my role involves juggling a lot of different tasks. I participate in multiple initiatives, like AWO maintenance, generating leads, building new relationships while maintaining and improving existing ones, and working with my manager to optimize recruiting strategies. As a Senior Recruiter, I am also responsible for driving the Workday Financials Recruiting team and helping grow the group to the next level.
What is your favorite part about being a Senior Recruiter?
My favorite part of being a Senior Recruiter is the grind! It’s exciting to play such a crucial role in my team’s growth and accomplishments. Knowing that I contribute to the overall group’s success, drive, and future is so rewarding!
