Happy 1st Rebirthday, Angela!

Angela 1st Rebirthday - LaSalle NetworkHow old are you at LaSalle?

I am 1 year old!!!!!!!!


What has been your professional progression at LaSalle?

I have been a Project Manager within Office Services. We are also known as the "Thundering Herd."


What is your first memory of LaSalle? 

My first memory of LaSalle Network was coming in and speaking with six LaSallians from five different teams over the course of two hours... I remember fixing one of the interview tables while I was waiting. It was all so nerve-wracking because I wanted the job so much!


What is your favorite thing about working at LaSalle?

My favorite thing about working at LaSalle is that I can tell people I love my job. A lot of my friends are hitting the point where they’re realizing that regardless of your salary or the ‘perks’ inherent in a company, if you don’t like the people you work with and the work that you do, it’s not really worth it. I feel like I have what really matters.


What does LaSalle mean to you?

LaSalle means teaming up and nerding out about recruiting, sharing silly stories, and lot of other really heartfelt moments that you wouldn’t be able to have if you didn’t genuinely care about your coworkers.


What has been your proudest moment at LaSalle?

There have been a lot of proud moments… I think the proudest I feel is when I look back at where I started, knowing nothing about recruiting. Now I'm able to manage positions with a level of independence and confidence I would not have imagined a year ago. Also, looking at my team and how quickly we are growing – we’re such a well-oiled machine, it’s awesome!


What do you hope to conquer in the next 365 days?

I want to increase the workload I'm able to handle. I’ve learned from secretly watching successful LaSallians that it’s not about work-life balance so much as life-life balance – if I work hard to better myself in one area of my life, the others will naturally improve. By eating well, exercising, and spending more time with loved ones, I will be a better recruiter and a better professional. By working smarter and harder in my job, I will be a more fulfilled and happy friend. It doesn’t have to be one or the other.


What does celebrating a rebirthday mean to you?

Snacks. (I. Love. Snacks.)

But also, happiness and reflection.


What has been the most unexpected thing about LaSalle?

How caught up I’ve been in the LaSalle spirit! Normal people think I’m weird, but LaSallians get it! Go Tom! Fearless Leader!


What's your spirit animal?

Ha ha, I'm a snail.


Anything else you want to share?

I wish I had had the opportunity to meet Tom in my interview… I always wonder what would have happened.
