Logistics Recruiter…How Did Adam Funk Get Here?
Adam Funk’s journey to become a Logistics Recruiter wasn’t as straightforward as others. His professional journey began in the fast-paced world of the banking and mortgage industries. There, Adam spent eight years fine-tuning his skills in sales, account management, and customer service. These experiences taught him that it’s not just about numbers; it’s about understanding the unique needs and aspirations of individuals.
Around early 2023, Adam was doing research on the careers that help people the most. In that list of careers, the one that stuck out the most to him was being a Recruiter. Adam knew that he possessed the foundational skills needed to be successful as a Recruiter. Not only would it be something he would be good at but he would enjoy helping people reach their full potential. A “win-win” professionally!
At the same time that Adam was researching high-impact careers, Top Talent was expanding and in search of adding another Logistics Recruiter to our staff. Senior Vice President Brent Burleson reviewed Adam’s resume and it was clear that he had the foundational skills needed to be successful at recruiting with Top Talent. Adam possessed excellent customer service skills, with a proven ability to sell, negotiate, and maintain relationships with executives at any level. Hiring Adam Funk as a Logistics Recruiter was a no-brainer.
