Michelle Mercurio, IT Permanent Placement Manager ~ Maverick Technology Partners
- How long have you been in Information Technology?
I have been in the IT world since 2015.
- How did you get involved with your current position?
I was working in a permanent IT position when Michelle found me on LinkedIn, she said she had a great opportunity for me. When she called, I was ready for a move but was not actively looking. As soon as I started working with Michelle, I knew the position was going to be an amazing opportunity to grow my career. After 9 months I couldn’t be happier that I picked up her call.
- What do you enjoy most about your Job?
I work for a great company that really cares about the well-being of their staff. I enjoy meeting customers from all different industries and get to experience new Technologies as they are first hitting the market.
- What are your thoughts on the future of the IT industry?
I think this is still a growing industry that will continue to grow and really shape how we live our daily lives both personally and professionally.
- What advice would you give to your 20-year-old self?
I would have told myself to start my career in IT right after getting out of school. Focus on training, networking, and finding a company that cares about your growth just as much as growing the company. Trust your gut and know your worth.
- Where would you go if you won a free trip to anywhere in the world?
I would love to travel freely around the world and experience new cultures. There are too many places I would love to visit to pick just one, but I would love to just travel and see where the journey took me.
- What are your hobbies or things that you like to do in your free time?
In my spare time, I really enjoy being outside, trying new things, and spending time with family and friends.
- What do you enjoy about working with Maverick?
Michelle and the Maverick team really care about the people they are working with. I never felt like I was being pushed into a job just to make a quota. I have been with my current company for almost a year now, but I still hear from Michelle on a regular basis. She is great about checking in and making sure I am still happy. I can honestly say I will always trust Maverick when it comes to moving jobs.
