At Genie Matthews & Associates, we love forming personal connections with people in every aspect of our lives.
Just as we enjoy getting to know our clients and candidates on a deeper level to provide the best service for their individual needs, we want to provide insight on who we are beyond our professional expertise!
Our staff highlight of the month is Kara Chadwick.
I’m Kara Chadwick, Sr. Recruiter with Genie Matthews and Associates.
After earning a BA in Public Policy Analysis from UNC-Chapel Hill (Go Heels!), I began my career in the cellular phone industry as a sales associate. I advanced quickly to District Sales Manager of Eastern NC/SC.
Following an outside sales role that proved too far from home, Genie welcomed me into the business in 2007. For almost 4 years, I learned the ropes of technical recruiting. I fell in love with the challenge of helping clients find great candidates and, in turn, helping great candidates find their next career opportunity.
In 2010, I ventured into the financial industry, and 1.5 years later I determined it was not the field for me! I came back to GMA for 2 years until deciding to seek a position working outside of my home office.
I accepted a recruiter role at my community hospital, recruiting nurses and other healthcare professionals. During that time, I completed my MS Management degree from Southern New Hampshire University. I was promoted to manage the hospital’s 400+ volunteer – Volunteer Services Department.
9 years later, with a husband, 2 small children and life happening all around, I once again asked Genie if I could come back to recruit with her – she said yes! 😊 I am excited to continue and grow our recruiting journey together!
