Almost exactly four years ago, we were packing up our Bellevue headquarters and beginning the move to our new downtown Seattle digs! Not only had we outgrown our office space, but we were expanding our staff base to meet the demands of a rapidly growing business. Meet Lauren Smith, our current Director of Recruiting, celebrating her 4-year anniversary with JeffreyM Consulting! Coming to us from a marketing position at a NYC based food & entertainment magazine, we immediately knew her warm personality and easy-to-talk-to manner would make her not only a stellar recruiter for JeffreyM, but a perfect fit for our growing staff team.
Originally joining the team as Talent Coordinator, Lauren dove headfirst into the recruiting world. Lauren ensures the entire recruiting process from beginning to end yields a positive experience for both the client and candidate. She is responsible for sourcing and reviewing candidate resumes, and conducting initial interviews to assess candidate strengths and culture fit prior to scheduling with the client. A year and a half later, as our recruiting department grew, Lauren moved into the role of Talent Manager. A year later, Lauren was promoted to Director of Recruiting, allowing her to directly impact our recruiting processes with her stellar team and allowing her to focus on placing our specialized and international roles.
Lauren’s dedication and passion for her role at JeffreyM are unmatched, though outside of her position you can find Lauren traveling the world, discovering the newest restaurants in the city, finalizing touches on her new home, or rooting on her Huskies! Lauren also dedicates her time as a mentor for Year Up, an organization that helps to close the opportunity divide by helping young adults who lack access to higher education and careers receive additional schooling and internships at major companies in the area.
Whether a consultant or client, you have likely had the pleasure of interacting with Lauren over the years! Reach out to her at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to reconnect, discuss upcoming opportunities, or simply say hello!
Congratulations on reaching your 4-year anniversary, Lauren! Our team wouldn’t be the same without you, and this is an incredible accomplishment. We look forward to what you accomplish in the years ahead!
