Meet Monique Barker - Recruiter

Employee Spotlight – Monique Barker

Tell us a little about yourself….
I was born and raised in NYC. Started my career path in finance but always knew I wanted a career assisting people which led me to Marcum Search. I have been here for 3 1/2 years.

How has your career grown since starting at Marcum Search?
Marcum Search helped me utilize my finance experience to be successful in recruiting. By combining both skillsets I’ve been able to produce better results. I’m thankful for the great support system provided by my colleagues and relationships I’ve built both internally and externally.

My favorite quote is…
“We are what we repeatedly do, Excellence, then is not an act but a habit”

Three words to describe myself…
Loyal, Compassionate, Outgoing.

My perfect day is…
A day full of pampering myself, going to the spa and ending the night with dinner at one of my favorite restaurants.

Advice for my 16 year old self…
BE YOURSELF, because people who matter don’t mind and people who mind don’t matter

Number 1 on my bucket list…
Skydiving – to overcome my fear of heights. (I get anxiety just thinking about it lol)

The person who had the biggest impact on my life is…
MY PARENTS, because of their endless optimism encouragement and faith in me.
