Meet the Recruiters: Hannah
A note from Brandy Lai, Director of Talent Engagement at NeoGenomics: At NeoGenomics, we strive to communicate openly to engage talent and to foster an innovative and collaborative culture. We have a team of skilled and focused recruiters that are dedicated to finding talent who will help deliver on our common purpose—to save lives by improving patient care.
Naturally, the recruiter and candidate relationship may feel a little one sided with candidates submitting their resumes, answering questions, and giving detailed accounts of their professional history without knowing much, if anything, about the recruiter. This uneven dynamic may lead to uncomfortable or unnatural interactions, which may ultimately affect the outcome of an interview.
This is why we’re kicking off a Meet the Recruiters series, allowing candidates to learn more about their first points of contact when they apply to work at NeoGenomics. Read their own words and start building a connection on a personal level.
Next up is Hannah Milewski, Talent Engagement Specialist.
How long have you worked at NeoGenomics, and what brought you here?
I started working at NeoGenomics in January of 2018. I had recently graduated from college and moved from Michigan to Fort Myers, Florida, seeking my first corporate career. I wanted to find a company in the healthcare industry with a mission and vision I truly believed in, and it just so happened that my new neighborhood was 3 miles away from Neo’s headquarters! I interviewed and accepted a job as an HR Coordinator before eventually being promoted to a recruiting role.
What stands out to you most when talking to candidates?
I recruit for positions all across the United States for our eight locations, and it always surprises me when candidates, even in the most remote locations, know about our company and what we’re doing. It really goes to show that Neo has made an impact on a global scale.
What advice do you have to anyone thinking about applying to NeoGenomics?
Do your research! There are so many resources out there (LinkedIn, Glassdoor, Facebook, YouTube) that provide insight on the company’s mission, vision, and current projects. This will not only give you a better understanding about the business needs, but also help you stand out from less-prepared candidates.
What do you love about working at NeoGenomics?
There’s a lot that I love about working at NeoGenomics, but what I love most is the culture. Everyone is always willing to lend a helping hand, even on the busiest days. With teamwork at the forefront of our core values, I know that I have the tools and support I need to be successful.
