Marissa Meyer

Director, Talent Acquisition

Marissa Meyer attended the University of New Hampshire – class of 2014! She started as a Recruiting Intern in December 2013 and began her full-time ALKU career as a Recruiter in June 2014. Marissa was the first official member of what is now Talent Acquisition, and today, Marissa oversees the Internal Recruiting Department and the College Relationship Department! Both teams work hard to find, attract, and hire the company’s best and brightest internal talent. Marissa stays closely connected to her teammates to build and maintain a strategy that allows ALKU to achieve company hiring goals while delivering a great experience to all candidates and new hires.

How do you “Have Fun Working Hard®”?
Developing a specific X + Y + Z = Having Fun Working Hard® formula is hard.  I say this because ALKU’s culture naturally builds and molds itself to its employees.  I have a blast brainstorming, collaborating, thinking, and celebrating with my coworkers – when times are both excellent and not so good.  No matter what, ALKU makes work feel less like work and more like an exciting opportunity.

What is your favorite way to get involved at ALKU?
I am a huge fan of quality 1-on-1 time with employees I don’t get the chance to work closely with regularly.  Whether catching up over lunch with a coworker from a different department or traveling to the other ALKU office locations, remaining present in some way, shape, or form is essential to me!

What is your day-to-day life like outside of ALKU?
When I’m not on Zoomin’ or Slackin’, I love spending time with my husband, my nephew, and all of my family and friends. Utilizing more of the right side of my brain, I also enjoy spending time in the kitchen, trying to make meals out of whatever’s left in the pantry and fridge!
