Meet Loretta

Q: What is your favorite part of being a manager?

A: My favorite part of being a manager is helping those that report to me develop their potential. As a manager you may find yourself coaching, mentoring or just providing guidance where needed. Whatever the case may be, helping someone grow and develop beyond the role they are in is a rewarding experience even at the risk of losing them to greener pastures.

Q: What has been your favorite project you have worked on within CareerBuilder?

A: During my 12 years at CareerBuilder I have had the opportunity to work on a number of projects both technical and non-technical. In my current role I would say my favorite project is a grouping of projects falling under organization development for Technology. All of my efforts are centered on helping the department solve problems and reach their goals. Whether it’s finding better tools or improving upon internal training programs, it has been very rewarding.

Q: What is your favorite weekend activity?

A:
a.I love to go rollerskating with my daughter when we have time.

Q: What has been your proudest moment working at CareerBuilder?

A: Being part of and doing well at Ideas From Everywhere was by far my proudest moment. I submitted the business plan and was thinking I’ll barely make the first cut, but when I got through the initial rounds and made it into the finals I was ecstatic. The day of the final presentation was nerve racking but so much fun to present to a whole room of leaders and judges.

Q: How do you balance your career and family life?

A: To me they are not two separate things. My manager and CareerBuilder give me the flexibility with hours when needed, be it when I was getting my part time MBA at Kellogg or in my new role as a recent mom. Getting things done is what’s valued more.

Q: What celebrity or public figure would you want to interview and why?

A: It’s a tough pick between Marissa Mayer (President and CEO of Yahoo!) and Indra Nooyi (Chief Executive Officer of PepsiCo). Both of them inspire me a ton.

A: I took the creative lead with our media partner to develop a video that shared a message of how employers are adapting their business and strategy to meet challenges brought on by the skills gap.

It was 6 years of hard work coming together and what I appreciate the most is that CareerBuilder had a true career path that could allow me to do so. Winning manager of the year in 2009 is probably my best memory and something I am proud because any leader wants to see their people win, and if the leaders wins so do the people

DEPARTMENT: Source and Screen

Meet Eric

Q: What have you enjoyed most about working at CareerBuilder?

A: Mostly the people. I have had the pleasure of working with some really smart, creative and passionate individuals and have learned a lot from them. It’s energizing to work in this type of environment.

The culture of innovation is also amazing. CareerBuilder is truly a forward-thinking company; and your ideas will be heard. You can literally come up with a new product or service (concept) and actually see it through development (production) and implementation. There are not many companies out there where this is not only strongly encouraged, but can be reality.

Q: How has CareerBuilder changed since you joined?

A: We have transformed our product and service offering dramatically since I joined; we have changed the perception in the industry of who we are. People are starting to realize we are more than just a job board but rather a leader in human capital data, services and solutions.

Our Sourcing Solutions business has also evolved substantially. We have shifted from a transactional model to building and implementing longer-term partnerships with our customers. We have also streamlined our systems and technology which has made us a lot more efficient when executing and delivering on client engagements.

Q: What has been your proudest moment working at CareerBuilder?

A: Our annual Kick-Off Events. The atmosphere and energy at these events is truly amazing. Having the opportunity to see former U.S. Presidents, Heads of State and professional athletes has be great. The entire event is always so motivating and inspirational. The stories shared of how we have not only helped companies, but how we have helped people find employment – change their lives and circumstances makes me feel proud and privileged to be a part of this company.

Q: What did you want to be when you were little?

A: When I was a kid, I had this fascination of being either an astronaut or fireman. I didn’t come close to either one.

Q: What’s the most unusual job you’ve ever had?

A: In high school I worked at the indoor kid’s playground and pizza place Chuck E. Cheese’s; and I was the one and only “Chuck E. Cheese”. Yes, I wore the big rat costume on Saturday mornings – greeting kids as they entered and interacting with them on the game room floor. It could get pretty warm in that outfit!

DEPARTMENT: Finance

Meet Alana

Q: Describe your career path since you started working at CareerBuilder.

A: I started at CareerBuilder in 2011 as a Corporate Financial analyst supporting our corporate functions such as Technology, HR, Customer Care and Legal. Later I chose to move from the corporate function to the International financial area where I supported the Asia companies- Singapore, China, Vietnam and Brazil. International was a huge learning curve as I went from supporting small business units to supporting entire countries! In 2014, I was promoted to a Senior Analyst and moved to support our EMEA where I currently work to support Sweden, Greece and other European countries. It has been fascinating to see how different each and every country operates and be able to take a piece of every experience that I have had up to his point and put it towards my career today.

Q: Which one of CareerBuilder's benefits do you love the most?

A: All of the benefits are just incredible, and it’s almost impossible to pick a favorable. Kickoff is unbelievable!

Q: What is your personal mantra or quote you like to live by?

A: A negative mind will never give you a positive life.

Q: If Hollywood created a movie about your life, who would you like to see cast as you?

A: First off, I can’t imagine my life eventful enough to make a Hollywood blockbuster out of, however, if I had to choose, I would probably say Jennifer Lawrence. I also really like her personality and how down to earth she is. She pretty much encapsulated my life when she tripped not once, but twice at the Oscars. She would encompass my awkward clumsiness perfectly!

Q: What have you enjoyed most about working at CareerBuilder?

A: I have really enjoyed the friendly atmosphere and the willingness of each person to help one another, or even to be a sounding board for difficult problems. I enjoy that there are no stupid questions to ask one another. In addition, I like that the company pays attention to the employees and actively works to keep us happy while we work to support the company.

Q: What has been your proudest moment working at CareerBuilder?

A: I have always liked working on projects that eventually result in something I can show to other people. But my proudest moment has been making SEO changes to our site that resulted in changes in the way that Google sees us (and also being able to show that off.) I was also really proud of my latest Hackathon project- I’ve worked at CareerBuilder for less than a year and have worked on other people’s projects at previous Hackathons, but this time I came up with the idea and worked on a solo project that won.

TITLE: Major Manager

DEPARTMENT: Sales

Meet Meghan

Q: What attributes do you think an individual needs to be successful at CareerBuilder?

A: They need to be curious and confident. Curiosity is the key to learning at CareerBuilder. We move FAST - if you’re waiting for formal trainings to learn about new products and strategies then you will always be one step behind. We have an amazing training team but there is no better training than experience. Confidence is equally important. As a new hire, you will need confidence to speak up and ask for clarification when you don’t understand something. Did I mention we move fast? As a leader and mentor, I rely on new hires to slow me down and ask for help.

Q: What have you enjoyed most about working at CareerBuilder?

A:Learning. There is never a dull moment at this company. One consistency at CareerBuilder is change and I thrive on the challenges that change can bring. Churchill said, “A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.” If you are the optimist, you will enjoy working at CareerBuilder.

Q: How has CareerBuilder changed since you joined?

A: CareerBuilder is always changing and I’ve been here for nearly a decade so it’s easier for me to say what has not changed. The competition, market, and product offerings have all changed several times since I joined CareerBuilder in 2005. What hasn’t changed is the culture. The executive team is second to none, the pace is fast and the product teams and engineers are always one step ahead of the competition.

Q: What has been your proudest moment working at CareerBuilder?

A: Last year my team won Team of the Year and every individual on the team qualified for President’s Club Trip. Everything came together for us that year and that group of individuals was so fun to work with. Being on stage and celebrating at Kickoff - that was the proudest moment for me so far.

Q: What did you want to be when you were little?

A: An architect. I’m not sure if I knew what it really meant to be an architect at the time but in hindsight it suits me. A get a real satisfaction out of creating an idea and seeing it through until it’s complete. I love the idea of “before and after”.

Q: What’s the most unusual job you’ve ever had?

A: In college I worked at an assisted living community as the assistant activities director. One day the bingo caller had to cancel and I volunteered to step in. My coworkers warned me that the residents were a tough audience and very critical of past bingo callers. I gave it a shot anyway and as two ladies were walking out I overheard one say to the other, “you know, that redhead wasn’t half bad.” I’ll take it!
