Katie Kiester

When did you start working at TekPartners? 

September 26th, 2017

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

I originally hail from the Philadelphia area and I am a diehard Eagles and Sixers fan. I am also what I would describe as an adventurer, and I enjoy partaking in thrilling activities from time to time. I have gone skydiving twice, which was hands down one of the most exhilarating and memorable adventures I’ve experienced.

Traveling is also one of my favorite pastimes and it’s a goal of mine to visit all 50 states as well as all 7 continents. With less than half complete, I have a ways to go!

What is your best work memory?

My best work memory was back in the early days of my time at TekPartners when I placed my first candidate. The placement was especially rewarding because it was a huge advancement for the candidate in his career and he is still happily employed at our client to this day.

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

About a month after starting at TekPartners, I joined a kickball team with about 10 other TekPartners employees. Being the newbie to the company made me somewhat hesitant to play on the team. However, looking back, this turned out to be one of the best decisions I have made during my time here. The interaction with my co-workers outside of the office really let me mesh with and get to know everyone on a more personal level. Now I am lucky to have many co-workers who have turned into my close friends.

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

The camaraderie we have here at TekPartners is second to none.  Although most of our team is competitive by nature, we still have relationships with one another.

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?

Understand the Urgency is the core value I relate to most because our industry is fast-paced and has many moving parts. In order to be successful and maintain solid relationships with clients, consultants and team members, you must operate with a sense of urgency.
