Sean joined us at the happy hour prior to his first day and it was clear that Sean has so many stories to tell. When we interviewed him he was in military uniform in the desert somewhere! Did we catch your attention?
Sean joins The Org as a Scout Associate (Technical). This means he will be working with clients to support their journey in finding and hiring individuals with a technical background (usually programming/data science experience). However, if your search is non technical you might still get the pleasure of seeing Sean's big smile as well.
"I’m excited to work at the Org because it lets me continue my passion for recruiting, but also my interest in startups. Not just in the sense that I’m working at one, but because I’m also able to work with other startups all the time. It’s a pretty straightforward path to recruit for a major financial institution, but it is an exciting challenge to recruit for the small shops with new and unique ideas."
In October 2016, Sean enlisted with the Massachusetts Army National Guard during sophomore year of college at Babson college. He trained at Ft. Meade in D.C. to become an Army Public Affairs Specialist. After graduating college in 2019 and he left for NYC with his girlfriend (now fiancee 💍) to work at Apex Staffing as a technical recruiter. There he learned the ins and outs of the traditional recruiting process, both technical and not. Sean worked with companies of all sizes/industries and candidates with 0.5 years of experience to 35 years. In 2020, he deployed to the middle east as part of SOJTF (Special Operations Joint Task Force). There he worked as a logistician, a public affairs specialist, and even a computer technician.
"I’m a huge fan of horror movies and shows, such as the Thing (1982) and the Haunting of Hill House. I’m a big PC gamer (League of Legends & Path of Exile are my vices), but also a lover of board games and Dungeons and Dragons. I also enjoy hanging out with my 2 feline friends, Bartholomew and Beatrice. I love to cook and have been working on my Korean recipes recently (currently working on haemul pajeon)."
Sean was born in Missouri and then raised in Miami, Florida. He left for Massachusetts for college and temporarily settled down in Long Island City after graduation. One thing led to another and he eventually found himself a proud owner of a Newarkian home that’s been around since Benjamin Harrison was President.
