A Day in the Life of Marie Rodriguez: Direct Hires, Double Plays, and Delectable Delights
Meet Marie Rodriguez, the unstoppable force behind Accurate Personnel's Elgin Branch. With six years of dedicated service at Accurate and an impressive 16 years in the staffing world, Marie is not your average Sr. Account Manager – she's a rockstar recruiter, social media maven, and an all around staffing superstar who inspires the people around her on a daily basis!
Every morning, Marie kicks off her day by checking voicemails, tackling client needs, and, of course, as Marie jokes, making sure to inquire about the most critical question: "What's for breakfast?" It's all about priorities, right?
Her claim to fame? Turning a notorious temp-to-hire client into direct hire gold mine, as well as earning multiple locations for her team to conquer. And how does she keep all these triumphs organized? Enter her indispensable notebook.
“I take a lot of notes on every task and job inquiry. Must have a notebook,” says Rodriguez. “My notebook this month is purple. Depends on what’s on sale after school,” she adds with a chuckle.
Marie's not just a recruiting wizard; she's a social media maestro with a job board boasting a cool 11k followers. When faced with tough orders to fill, she taps into her digital army to achieve staffing success.
Now, let's talk desk essentials. Marie's desk is a treasure trove of uniqueness, featuring a standout item – the Maneki-Neko Cat figure. A good luck charm gifted to Marie straight from Japan during her first year at Accurate, courtesy of the former AP sales rep Liz Bucio. Because who doesn't need a little feline fortune in their work life?
When the going gets tough, Marie recharges with a snack from the Michoacana next door that opened earlier this year. Corn in a cup, fruit and yogurt, or scoops of ice – the options are endless. “You can’t make me choose,” Rodriguez adds.
While she may refuse to pick a favorite snack, many of her coworkers would point in her direction if asked to name their favorite AP Chef. Marie is known for her culinary proficiency, regularly showing off her skills at the office during Accurate summer cookouts.
Outside of the office, Marie trades her recruiting hat for a coaching cap as an assistant softball coach for young girls. She notes that she has never played before, but who says you need experience to hit a home run in coaching?
“I just started in the spring this year,” says Rodriguez. She was looking for a fun way to get active and she has already made the jump to fall ball. Volleyball is also her jam – making her a two-sport standout among her Accurate peers.
Collaboration is key in Marie's office, where everyone is treated like family. Marie is a regular in Employee Engagement Committee meetings and constantly suggests new ways for the Accurate family to get together!
When it comes to Accurate traditions, she's all about office contests, winning company swag, and loves to get involved when branches meet up.
So, there you have it – a day in the life of Marie Rodriguez, where recruiting meets purple notebooks, lucky cats, Michoacana snacks, and a dash of unexpected coaching skills. Accurate Personnel's Elgin Branch is undoubtedly in good hands with Marie in the mix, turning staffing challenges into victories, one purple notebook at a time.
