Whether she’s greeting candidates, setting up interviews, or giving tours of the office – she is always positive and dedicated to creating a top-notch candidate experience each step of the way. Not to mention, she’s been managing her own roles and building out the sales and client success team. We’re so lucky to have Cortney on the team!”

What has been your most memorable moment with a customer, vendor, or candidate at Zerocater?
I recently hired someone for our sales team. I didn’t know him before he applied but worked with him throughout the interview process. During his first week working here, someone else came up and asked how we knew each other, assuming we had been friends for quite some time. However, it was because of the relationship we built during the interview process that I got to know him so well. I loved hearing that I provided such a fantastic candidate experience, it seemed as though we had been friends all along.
