Candace is a top-performing staffing professional with over five successful years of experience in the staffing industry, combined with an educational background in Communications. Candace joined FORTIS Resource Partners as Staffing Manager in July of 2015. She can spot top talent a mile away, and chances are she already has an ideal candidate in mind before her clients even ask.
With one of her top Gallup strengths being that of Individualization, Candace takes a keen interest in the career satisfaction of her candidates and will not rest until she knows they have acquired the right job that perfectly matches their skill set. She takes the time to build close relationships with her high-potential candidates and her clients as well, in problem-solving and understanding more fully what the client needs for their business to thrive.
Candace received her Bachelor's degree in Communications with a concentration in Entertainment from California State University in Fullerton. With her initial pursuit in marketing, she held multiple internships with locally successful magazines before joining her first recruiting firm. Since then, she has worked with a wide range of clients from a variety of industries, before refining her expertise to corporate financial staffing through her career at FORTIS.
What keeps her going throughout the work day is a hot coffee with 2 pumps of peppermint, brisk walks outdoors, and some upbeat music playing in the background. During her time off, she enjoys heading south of the border to Las Gaviotas or inland to see the Joshua Trees and clear night skies.
