Employee Spotlight – Fred Engel

Meet Fred Engel, Recruiter at TekPartners in Orlando

Fred Engel

When did you start working at TekPartners? 

August 7, 2017.

Brief summary of skills and/or specialties: 

My main skills are recruiting, building long lasting candidate relationships, and building a wall of trust so that our candidates know they can reach out to TekPartners and myself when they are in the job market.

What is an interesting/fun fact we would be surprised to learn about you?

I umpired Fast Pitch Softball for all levels including High School, Small Colleges and up to Division 1. I even worked a Florida Gators game once when I was younger.

What is your best work memory?

My best work memory is when one of my contractors came to me to see if we could represent him at a client for a huge project. He ended up getting us approved to represent him and helped us get about 15 additional people on board through our company.

At P2P, we are People helping People. Tell us about a time you really connected with a consultant or client:

I once really connected with a consultant for a contract job out of state. When I met him for lunch to give him the paperwork, I found out that we had a lot of things in common including his sister living down the street from me. He would end up visiting our family during Christmas when he was visiting his sister and gave me about 10 referrals for a 2 year plus project.

What makes TekPartners different from any company you’ve ever worked for?

What makes this place different is that I feel that everyone is helping each other as a team in the Orlando office. If someone doesn’t know the answer to something, management and other recruiters are always willing to go the extra mile to help out to make sure we are doing what is right to be successful.

What core value (Be the Best, Understand the Urgency, Never Give Up, Have the Courage to Excel or Make A Contribution) do you relate to most, and why?

Be the Best: I wake up every morning with a plan in place to win the day.
Understand the Urgency: I feel this is a huge thing in recruiting that I am well aware of, because if you sit back, the competition will beat you.
Never Give Up: I use this approach in everything I do and I feel this is the #1 thing that I excel at.
