Jessica Bailey, Lead Technical Recruiter/Account Manager
Jessica originally thought she wanted to become an English professor, but an internship in the recruitment field hooked her. After a brief stint at one recruiting company which ceased operations shortly thereafter, Jessica was snatched up by VIA Technical, and after over three years here, she hasn’t looked back.
What does Jessica love about her work? “Relationships – I’ve made good friends with a lot of candidates and these have become wonderful long term relationships. They often ask me for advice with their careers. I really value that.” Jessica also loves the people she works with, in a company whose size and culture allow her and her coworkers to provide meaningful, actionable input to processes and improvements.
B.A. in English – San Diego State University
Building relationships with candidates that go beyond just an open position. Rather, Jessica acts as their “lifelong” Recruiter by truly understanding their motivators, wants, needs, and career goals.
