Criminal Justice grad becomes tech recruiter?! Yes, that's me! After graduating, a while ago, and not joining the police department, as planned, my friend hired me as a recruiter. I really didn't know what a tech recruiter even was, but as cliche as it sounds, I was looking for a job where I could help people. Recruiting is kind of like being a detective, you have to research companies and candidates and find the "as close to perfect match" as possible.
I started my career working for a consulting firm where I hired people on projects from all over the world, India, South Africa and Turkey specializing in SAP and Y2K projects. Am I dating
myself? I left consulting joined a Global Firm where I managed a team in Los Angeles before moving to Boston. After a few years of shoveling snow, we decided to return to LA
and I joined Technical Connections. The rest is history, here I am 15 + years later where I have enjoyed a rewarding career making a positive impact on people’s lives and finding excellent talent for our clients.
Why I love recruiting...
Almost nothing makes me happier than telling someone they got the job and their excitement. It is such a rewarding feeling!
When I'm not working, I love to...
Exercise, cook, garden, hang out with my teenager and my friends, walk our Golden Retriever, read, go to concerts, and drink fine wine.
Jen is very professional and helpful in explaining the hiring Process. she clearly mentioned the client requirements, expectations of the role, provided enough background of the client business model and work environment which is very important for a candidate.she gives Quick response/replies to Emails.

Jen is a great listener and super understanding when it comes down to finding a role that matched my skill set and personal needs. She helped me get hired at a company that has been a great fit for me. She has also placed a couple other folks within the organization I work for and they have nothing but great things to say about Jen.
Jen was wonderful and extremely attentive. It was clear from the start that she was working hard to get me in the right position with the right compensation, and she definitely delivered. I highly recommend working with Jen. She is head and shoulders above any other recruiter I have ever worked with.
I have been very impressed with Jen’s work ethic and integrity as a recruiter. I’ve hired Jen and her company in vetting and providing specialized and qualified resources for the corporate portfolio management office I’ve managed. She has been a trusted partner that I continue to lean on for the recruitment of the project portfolio. I have found Jen dependable and transparent throughout the recruitment process and I am very pleased to provide this recommendation for Jen as a recruiter and trusted partner.
