Recruiter Esther Kim

Esther has a background in teaching, and taught in the public-school system for three years. Working in public education helped her understand how to work with a variety of different people whether that be students, administration, teachers, or parents. She realized that she could take her love of helping others and use it in the recruiting industry. Being an educator, she was able to learn how to really focus on the needs of each student, which helps in recruiting when building relationships and understanding the needs of candidates and clients alike. She believes that the key to any relationship is open communication and listening/understanding the needs of the other person. This is what excites her about recruiting because when you really listen, you can find the right match for candidates and clients alike. Before becoming an Empowered Staffing team member, she worked at another recruiting firm that worked with many different retailers in the Chicagoland area. Therefore, she is familiar with partnering with different industry leaders and understanding the need of finding qualified professionals who also match company culture. Outside of work, Esther is a wife and proud dog mom to Moomoo. She enjoys good company, eating great food, watching HGTV, and traveling.
