Two weeks ago, I sat at my desk proof reading away, while listening to some epic movie music on my iPod…don’t ask about the music choice. After, ensuring all of my “i”s were dotted and all of my “t”s were crossed, figuratively of course, I sent the document in for approval. I looked at my watch and what do you know, I still had an hour before lunch! Two hours from start to finish. Well, the document was on the shorter side, but this was still a big accomplishment for me, as writing doesn’t come quite as easily as I would like it to. In truth, I am the type of person who overanalyzes every word written on the page, which often leads to an evening on the couch with my computer on lap and ice cream in hand. It often takes quite some time before I am even the slightest bit satisfied with what I have written. But, by completing this type of work in a timely manner, with appropriate word choice and sentence structure, my confidence level went way up. I was finally “starting to get it”. I was finally starting to become more efficient at my job. When I finished the project, I first sung a sigh of relief, then reflected on how much I’ve learned since day one and lastly, questioned how this growth was possible. After a two minute thinking expedition, I landed on training and work environment. I had extensive and frequent trainings and I have been able to work in a healthy, comfortable work environment (in my case, the ability to listen to music while I work). The skills I have developed and the knowledge I have gained have not only helped me in my current job responsibilities, but they will also enable me to have a successful career. Now, don’t get me wrong, I still have a great deal to learn, but I now have the confidence to reach my professional goals. And, much of it is thanks to iCIMS.
Ok, so what does this have to do with iCIMS 10th Anniversary…
In their announcement one month ago, iCIMS told the world about its ten years of excellence. And, as an employee here, I am thrilled to be celebrating iCIMS success. I enjoy working here and enjoy the satisfaction of knowing that I am able to improve my mind every day at this company. So, I am excited to be part of this celebration. However, I am even more excited about how the outside world has reacted to iCIMS’ announcement. I would now like to share with you some of the positive feedback and supportive comments clients and partners have made. These sentiments truly reaffirm my belief that iCIMS upholds an unwavering commitment to both customer satisfaction, along with internal employee satisfaction.

Always impressed with the people at iCIMS. Very sharp, creative and friendly group of pros. Can you say HR Happy Hour tour?

It’s refreshing to know that I work for a company that is so well-respected.
The next few months are going to be quite busy with the hustle and bustle of the Happy Hour/Anniversary tour. But, having the chance to recognize iCIMS success and more importantly, thank the clients and partners who have helped the company experience such growth, will make it all truly worth it.
