Anna's Story - relocating to Miami

Anna Wilson-Wuestefeld, Discover International

What inspired you to reach out to FIFTEEN WEST?

I started working with Fran at FIFTEEN WEST recently after I graduated college and was looking to start my career. I wasn’t 100% sure what I wanted to do with my life just yet but knew I wanted a career working in/around the life sciences industry and loved the idea of getting into the sales/recruitment industry. Fran reached out with an opportunity at Discover International based out of Miami which seemed like the perfect fit for me as I wanted to escape the cold of New England winters!

How has the new job impacted your life?

It really has been nothing short of amazing so far, with a company that’s been truly great to work for and an amazing culture which eased the anxiety of moving to a completely new city without many connections. Within my first 3 months at Discover I quickly got promoted and have made multiple placements working with wonderful people who are now in positions that they’re truly loving!

I’m also surrounded by great colleagues who have quickly become friends. It’s been amazing to fully understand the impact of how Fran & FIFTEEN WEST helped me after moving into recruitment myself, and brings me even more happiness knowing that I’m now doing the same thing for others.

Do you have any advice for those looking to get into recruitment?

If you’re looking to get into recruitment, I highly encourage looking for a company with great culture and colleagues who offer amazing support and training like I’ve been so fortunate to have, and working with someone like Fran who will make sure you end up somewhere that’s a great fit for you. Fast career progression and the opportunity to earn high income right out of college while also doing something you enjoy is hard to find, and this industry is one of the best places to be if that’s what you’re looking for!

Would you recommend FIFTEEN WEST to others?

I would highly recommend working with FIFTEEN WEST to anyone looking to move into recruitment, Fran & her colleagues really care about what matters to you in your career, and want you to succeed and love what you’re doing. Working with them has been one of the best choices of my young career so far, I can’t say enough great things about them and my experience working with Fran, and would highly recommend working with them to anyone else looking to move into this industry!
