Cortni Mckenzie – Talent Sourcer
North Carolina Agricultural & Technical State University
BA in Psychology
Hi, I’m Cortni Mckenzie. As a Talent Sourcer at ATR, I find top talent for technical positions. I talk to people every day, getting to know them and their experience so that we can be certain that we are providing the best candidates for our clients. It is a fast-paced environment and definitely a challenge every day but I enjoy helping people continue their career in the best possible way.
For Candidates: Believe in yourself… the only way to do that is to bring your authentic self to the table. ALWAYS ask plenty of questions! Not only are you interviewing for the position, but the company is interviewing for a chance to employ you! Make them sweat J
For Hiring Managers: Give as much honest detail as possible about the role and requirements so that candidates have a better understanding of what is expected.
My life mantra is, “Life is a journey, not a destination.” I love this quote and it has surely fueled my outlook on life, business, and success. Master the art of perspective and you will WIN at this game called life.
Hobbies and Interests:
Outside of work, I am the proud co-founder of Just Bee Empowerment Group, a nonprofit dedicated to mentoring young girls. I am also a coach and love teaching about the game of Basketball. When I am not busy giving back to the youth, I enjoy trying new food/restaurants, joking with friends, listening to music, and binge watching TV shows.
My favorite place to travel to is “Dear Old A&T”, my illustrious Alma Mater, because of the great everlasting memories, relationships and skills that were created there. The T taught me how to think, not what to think and I am forever indebted. AGGIE PRIDE!!
