This quarter, Tri-Search’s Recruiter Spotlight illuminates Jordan Kaliher.

What has been your most satisfying (and your most challenging) job fills while at Tri-Search?
JK: My most satisfying job fill was placing a new Division Manager at a leading manufacturing distributor. This position is an extremely visible role for the client, so the process was lengthy. It was about 14 months from kick-off to signed offer letter. The candidate was very passive in his search for a new opportunity and was patient throughout the course of the process. He started earlier this week, and I can’t wait to see what he is able to accomplish!
The most challenging position was working on a Continuous Improvement/Quality Manager for a leading, global packaging company. The requirements for the role changed a few times throughout the course of the search, and the location wasn’t the most incentivizing place. However, we were able to find the perfect candidate who started last September!
What do you like most about the recruiting process?
JK: I love partnering with clients to determine exactly what they’re looking for and then the challenge of finding people that meet those specifications. I love the opportunity to help clients and candidates find each other to ensure the right fit, long-term.
What are your thoughts this far on your time spent with Tri-Search?
JK: I can’t speak highly enough about Tri-Search and the team we have in place. The leadership team is extremely supportive – personally & professionally. They empower us yet are always there to help. The team we have is wonderful, even though we work remotely, everyone is willing to lend a helping hand. We are there to celebrate all of each other’s victories, as well as empathize with each other.
What advice would you give people looking to change jobs?
JK: Network as much as possible! Also, make sure to do your homework on the company and have specific reasons why you’re interested in working for them. You should interview the company as much as they interview you to determine if it will be the right fit long-term.
Any personal details you’d like to share?
JK: I am expecting my first baby this month!
