Melissa Chavez – HR Administrator
AS in Business Administration, emphasis on Criminal Justice: Heald College San Jose
Hi, I’m Melissa Chavez. As an HR Administrator at ATR, one of my most important responsibilities is onboarding our contractors. It is a critical step in ensuring that our clients get the talent they need as quickly as possible. I keep in contact with our clients, recruiters, payroll and account managers to make sure that things run smoothly. What I most like about working in the staffing industry is the insight it gives me into the large companies that we contract for. The more I can understand our clients, the better I can serve them. Being able to help candidates land their dream jobs is also very fulfilling.
Advice for Candidates:
It sounds cliché but when one door closes, another larger door with crown molding swings wide open.
Advice for Hiring Managers:
Don’t doubt the underdogs! Hard work beats talent when talent refuses to work hard!
My favorite quote:
“Either you run the day or the day runs you.” Jim Rohn
Hobbies and interests:
I love spending time with my 4 small dogs and 2 cats. Driving in the Santa Cruz mountains and spending time with my boyfriend and family.
My garden/patio is very soothing. I am surrounded in beautiful plants and flowers that attract all kinds or animals and insects. Hummingbirds, butterflies, and ladybugs are constant visitors; with the background waterfall ambiance.
