Being a project manager is not like sitting in the passenger seat. I steer the team in the right direction in a timely manner.
Q&A with Rupali
1. Tell us about your path here. Why did you choose to join Acertitude?
My passion for working in human resources began when I started my career as a junior administrator on Mike Bloomberg's campaign. Later, I worked at a boutique executive search firm and at Korn Ferry as a project manager. Eventually, I moved to the client side in HR, which led to my understanding of the how and why behind client decision making, which truly piqued my interest.
Given my prior career experience, Acertitude was a natural fit - I could put my relationship and project management skills to use with a dual focus on clients and candidates. Between the overall opportunity to put my learnings to use and the supportive leadership, joining the "A" team was a no brainer.
2. Describe a day in your life. Favorite parts of your job?
Being a project manager is not like sitting in the passenger seat. I set the pace of the search and enjoy a great amount of daily touch points with candidates and clients. I steer the team in the right direction in a timely manner.
3. What is special about working here?
There is nothing I love more about my job than our supportive leadership. They empower us to make informed decisions, be leaders in our fields, and deliver optimal results for our clients. They truly practice what they preach, abiding by our core values and The Acertitude Way.
4. How has Acertitude helped you grow and perform at your best?
Celebrating wins, acknowledging great work, and developing the team with the right mentorship. These are the key factors that make me want to come to work every day and make high-quality contributions that help my colleagues and clients.
5. In what ways - big or small - do you live out our mission of unleashing human potential?
As a mom of two boys, I am always reminding them to unleash their highest potential in everything that they do. Whether they are doing work or playing soccer or chess, I encourage them to do so with unconditional love. I believe that it creates great energy and leads them to achieve results in an exponential fashion. This mantra helps my family and I live our lives at our highest potential, and hopefully create a momentum that will touch others' lives.
6. What advice do you have for people looking to join Acertitude? What qualities do people need to be successful here?
Those who are looking to join Acertitude should know that they will be challenged in a good way. I like that we are pushed to achieve our greatest level of performance and to find our inner calling. To be successful, you must be agile to learn and grow, confident to tell the truth, and a good team player who is willing to go the extra mile - to amaze clients and build human connections with the internal team.
