"I'm a recruiting wizard at headhunting the ones who are hard to get!! I’m a sales person at the end of the day - I will not take no for an answer. My secret sauce is not telling others what my secret sauce is...but I have some tricks up my sleeve! It's important to listen more than you speak and to add value to every conversation you're having."

ELIZABETH TUFEGDZICH,

What is it about startups that you can't get enough of?  

Everything within a startup matters, it all has impact!  Startups aren’t afraid to rock the boat, break the rules, and push the limits.  Their mission matters and what matters even more is the people helping to build it.  Getting to have the privilege to hire the teams that will make that huge wave is a

GAME CHANGER!

What is your proudest placement to date?

The CRO at StackAdapt! It was my first C-level placement and we built a great bond throughout the process. I had the honor of helping him build out his team once he started.  They tripled their revenue and doubled their headcount. 

Who's been your favourite startup client?

Vena Solutions!  We’ve placed roles all the way from SDRs to members of the executive leadership team.  It’s been really cool to work with every department within their organization.

The best piece of advice I'd give a candidate who wants to join a startup

Be authentically yourself, your vibe attracts your tribe!  Don’t pretend to be the smartest person in the room or you will never learn and ask the right questions.  Don’t be afraid to hustle hard, roll up your sleeves and get dirty

If I wasn't so damn good at my job, I'd be...

An FBI Agent or Detective - I’m a crime documentary junkie and I love putting the pieces together - it’s probably why I’m so good at sourcing candidates.
