While Austin is new to the Stivers team, we’ve already seen an impact from his positive attitude and approach to helping others find the right opportunity. Read on to learn more about Austin.
What’s one thing most people don’t know about you?
I actually love to DJ at places. There is a bar close to work that I have DJ’ed at occasionally, and I also DJ at the local SkyZone on the weekends. I love to listen to music and mix it for other people. My best friend who I started a company with loves to DJ with me. We have a wide knowledge of different genres of music that makes our sets great.
When you were younger, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I actually had multiple ideas of a “perfect” career when I was growing up. When I was about 12 I wanted to be an Anesthesiologist. Unfortunately, I found out quite fast that wasn’t going to work for me because I do not like the doctor’s office or anything close to it. I sometimes get a few shades too pale when on those visits. I then thought about being a CEO, but I had no idea about what my company was going to either sell or provide. I actually did end up starting a Web Design business with my best friend from college and it keeps us busy on the side. I didn’t think that at a young age I would be here today, but I am extremely grateful to be a part of the Stivers family.
What was my favorite vacation?
I have been blessed with the opportunity to travel to many countries in my lifetime. I probably enjoyed my study abroad trip the most. It was a 12 day trip to England, Ireland, and Wales where we went though the countryside and hit the major cities while engaging in many activities that locals usually did. Of course, I took many pictures and would love to go back.
What made you want to work for Stivers?
I have been at Stivers for a month now. Initial reasons that got me to apply for the position were the positive conversation surrounding the company. My career services advisor praised the company for how they treat their employees and how the staffing industry really helps people. After researching a little more I noticed that Stivers had multiple awards including the most recent awards for staffing, client, and talent excellence. I was very impressed and after learning about the different industries they work with, I thought that I would apply and reach out to some people that work there. I haven’t regretted a single moment here.
What is your favorite thing about your job?
I actually love being busy for the right reason. My job here doesn’t disappoint in any way. I thought when I was younger that I would end up with a job that had me staring at the clock waiting to go home every day. At Stivers, I hardly ever have the time or urge to look at the clock. I am always working with others here and I love doing that. I spend a lot of my day meeting new people through interviews and understanding how they got to where they are today. I try to figure out how our company can help them best. I strive every day to try and find the best opportunity for the person I am working with and that is such a great feeling.
