What 3 qualities make someone successful at Brightwing?
What is your most memorable moment so far at Brightwing?
I would have to say my first placement was one of most memorable times I’ve had here. My candidate had a seizure and lost his license the week before starting his new job. He was a new college graduate anxious to get his career started and was also in the middle of relocating to the Detroit area.
What was inspiring was that he didn’t let any of this stand in his way. He biked into the office and had coworkers drive him to and from when needed. He persevered and didn’t let anything, including his condition, overcome him starting his career in the IT field.
What motivates you?
There are a couple of main things at work that motivate me. First, I love developing new Brightwingers. I enjoy training them in a fun and collaborative way that makes it exciting to learn this business.
Second, I love helping my team perform collaboratively where we are in sync with one another. We’ve built a cohesive team environment where we’re always looking for new strategies to be more successful and achieve a higher performance. We leverage our strengths as a team and genuinely appreciate one another. It is important for our team to enjoy what we do and have fun while doing it.
If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
