Get To Know Laura King

We asked this all-star Marketing Recruiter a few questions, and here’s what she had to say:

What three words describe a great leader?

1.) Compassionate
2.) Humble
3.) Decisive

If you could give your younger self advice, what advice would you give?

Worry less about what others think of you, and just be yourself.

What’s one thing you wish all candidates knew about job searching?

Focus on quality over quantity. The energy you bring to your job search and the people you meet during the process will come back to you years later if you look at the time as a chance to build more meaningful relationships vs. have it be a transactional approach.
