Ally Farlow, Account Manager, joined our Murfreesboro, Tennessee team in January 2017.
In your words, what do you do?
"I connect our applicants to our clients, making matches that work well for both parties."
What’s the best part of your job?
"When I make a placement for someone and they end up staying long term because the client and candidate both love it!"
What’s the hardest part of your job?
"It's hard interviewing people who don’t really want a job. Putting energy into the people who don’t want to put in effort of their own takes my time away from the candidates who are really here to find a career. I'm here to coach and help whoever wants it - you just have to ask."
What actions do you take to set yourself apart from recruiters at other companies?
"I ask a lot of questions to the employee about what they want. It matters what they want to do to find a job they love and want to stay at. Our applicants and clients are both happier when we place people who want to be there. Also, I think I do more follow up with employees to update them on the jobs they've interviewed for and to let them know if I have a job yet that they'd be good for."
Why do you think candidates connect with you so well?
"I’ve worked in a lot of customer service jobs so I know how our candidates feel in those types of positions and can honestly say “I’ve been there. I know how it is. Then, I'm able to give advice to make sure they succeed in their placement.”
Which of the PSG core values do you relate to most? Why?
"Respect – I believe there’s a job for everyone, so everyone should be treated the same no matter their background and experience level."
Any advice for our applicants?
"Be respectful in your interview. I give respect to everyone and expect our applicants to give that same respect back. Put your phone down and focus on what you've come for. Ask questions and be interactive in your interview so we can find a placement you'll love."
