I am a Product Manager at Rocket Software. I retired from IBM in December, 2014, after 32 years of service. I have been a recruiter for the University of Michigan since 1998 and that continues today in my new company. Recruiting is not my primary role, it is something I do because I like to work with college students. Over my career, I have held a variety of positions including software development, marketing, education, customer engagement, technical consulting, and senior management. I have worked in a software development lab environment and in the sales environment where I engaged directly with customers. I also spent five years on an international assignment with IBM in London, England, where I worked with customers in 15 different countries in Europe, the Middle East and South Africa.
It is through all of these work assignments and my recruiting activities that I have developed a unique understanding of what it means to work in the Engineering field. I draw on these experiences when I talk to students. Recruiting is about placing students in positions where they can excel and create successful careers.
I know a lot about recruiting and resume creation and I will share these “recruiting secrets” with you so you can put your own story in the best light possible. Your story starts with a organized and concise resume format.
