DSS would like to welcome Business Development Manager, Jennifer Hogg to the team! Her home base is in Dallas. Jennifer’s staffing mentor gave her one of the best secrets on how to succeed in the industry, and if you love traveling you already have something in common with her. Let’s get to know her better.
Over to you Jennifer…
How long in the business?
Who is your role model?
Definitely my mother, she is the smartest, selfless and most driven person I know.
Have any hobbies?
I love scrapbooking! I love to travel! And I love photography! I volunteer at my church to help in the toddlers’ classroom. I love to dance, and used to teach dance classes years ago. My dream before becoming a mother was to be a Dallas Mavs dancer.
What really grinds your gears?
It kills me to disappoint others.
Where is your happy place?
HOME. I love being home with my daughter. We love to play electronic and board games, watch Star Wars and Harry Potter movies and play with our new kitten, Midnight.
My positive attitude.
What is your biggest addiction?
NETFLIX. I can get lost watching tv series, movies and documentaries for days.
How do you get creative?
I love to collaborate with others, bounce ideas off each other!
What outlets do you use for staffing?
When I first entered into this industry, my mentor told me, “Staffing is a lifestyle.” Everyone you know either knows someone looking for work or knows someone hiring. I love networking through casual conversation.
What piece of advice would you give your-17-year-old-self?
If “he seems too good to be true, most likely he is…
Any advice you would give someone in the staffing industry?
Start each day with a positive, “go getter” attitude and tackle each task with a smile! =)
Any future plans?
I want to travel the world with my daughter. Emily often talks of wanting to go to Japan, Hawaii and, most importantly, LONDON. (My daughter is a huge Doctor Who fan!)
