My name is Kellen and I am a recent college grad who has been working at PMG for just under a year! In my free time I like to travel and hang out with friends and family. I also enjoy playing and watching pretty much any sport.
What are your main responsibilities as a Pipeline Development Coordinator?
Lots of cold and “warm” calling of manufacturing candidates. I conduct phone interviews with candidates and update our database with their resume and interview information.
This is the first time I’ve ever done a job like this. In fact, this was my first job after graduating college. It didn’t take long until it was second nature. PMG offers a really great training program that brought me up to speed quickly.
How did you learn about the opportunity with PMG?
Networking! It is all about who you know.
What do you like most about your job?
I love calling and speaking with people. It makes every day really fun and interesting. I recruit for a variety of positions so I get to learn a little bit about a lot of things.
What do you like most about working for PMG?
The office culture. Everyone is very friendly and my team is very easy to work with. I also love that the dress code is casual.
What are some hobbies you do in your free time?
I love to hang out with my friends and play soccer. On the weekends, I like to visit breweries and local dive bars. My favorite place to grab a beer is Dangerous Man Brewing. My favorite restaurant is Lagos Tacos- you can’t go wrong with anything on the menu!
What celebrity/inspirational person do you admire the most?
Lionel Messi. He plays soccer for Barcelona. I’ve looked up to him since childhood.
What did you want to be when growing up?
I always wanted to be a professional soccer player.
What advice would you give to a recent new hires at PMG?
Don’t’ be afraid to ask questions, you will have a lot! And always keep a positive attitude- that will go a long way.
What animal describes the “work you”?
Probably a parrot because I talk to so many people in a day I have gotten really good at adjusting my communication style to the people I am speaking with.
