SARAH MULDER Marketing Manager

SARAH MULDER
Marketing Manager

A North Platte, Neb., native, and University of Nebraska at Kearney alumna, Marketing Manager Sarah Mulder has been with Associated Staffing for almost 3 years. Learn a little bit about Sarah!

Q: What did you want to be when you grew up? 
A:  Astronaut, author, Air Force pilot, art teacher.  

Q: What gets you motivated to come to work?
A: The fact that I have the ability to create campaigns that allow us to always be one step ahead in our marketing efforts to attract the most talented candidates. I’m a very competitive person!

Q: Describe Associated Staffing:
A:
Goal-oriented. Forward-thinking. Community-minded.

Q: What would people never guess you do in your role?
A:
I write all of our job postings. We have hundreds of jobs that are posted each month.

Q: If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?  
A: Paris for the food and history; Canada for the goose hunting.

Q: What traits define you?
A:
Laser focused. Innovative. Creative.

Q: If you could switch your job with anyone else in the company, whose job would you want and why?
A: I would switch with everyone for about a month to learn all facets of the business. However, my home is marketing.

Q: What is your greatest achievement?
A:
 I’m really proud of my son. He’s the smartest, most hilarious 3-year-old ever.

Q: What hidden talents do you have?
A:
I’m a great singer! But only in the car by myself. Too bad no one else knows how good I really am! :)

Q: Who is (or has been) the most influential leader in your life (and why):
A:
I had a manager at one of my first jobs out of college that taught me a lot about how to be a female leader in a fast-paced and stressful work environment, leading with high integrity at all times and always having the best interests of your team at the forefront of any decision. Her drive, attitude, outlook on life and leadership skills were tremendous and contagious.

Q: What do you do on your days off?
A:
I love spending time with my family outside – fishing, hunting and going to sporting events. I also love painting, cycling and designing modern, bright and fun quilts!

OFELIA HERNANDEZ Grand Island Recruiter

OFELIA HERNANDEZ
Grand Island Recruiter

Ofelia Hernandez, a Recruiter in our Grand Island office, started as an Employment Specialist nearly 2 years ago before moving into her current role as Recruiter. Originally from Mexico, Ofelia lived mainly in South Sioux City, Neb., before moving to Grand Island in 2013.

Q: What did you want to be when you grew up? 
A:  When I was young I wanted to be a teacher for about 5 seconds. Eventually I realized that kids aren’t my thing, mostly not a group of them.  

Q: Describe Associated Staffing in just three words:
A:
  Helpful, fun, energetic.

Q: Funniest thing to happen at work:
A:
I am always having things happen to me!

Q: What would people never guess you do in your role?
A: 
That I spend more time looking for candidates, than on the ones that come in the door.

Q: If you could interview anyone (dead or alive), who would it be and why?
A:
I would interview and would like to get in the mind of Bill Gates. He is one of the richest men of the world and I’d like to know what he does that makes him different from us.

Q: If you could switch your job with anyone else in the company, whose job would you want and why?
A:
  I would want Sarah’s job (Marketing). I think it’s awesome how she gets to see this company in a totally different way. Marketing takes so much creativity, and I think it’s amazing all the things she can do and does to market us to people’s homes and computers.

Q: If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?  
A: Dubai. It’s an up and coming and growing city. I would like to get to that side of the world and travel.

Q: What hidden talents do you have?
A:
I have not discovered it yet if I do.

Q: Who is (or has been) the most influential leader in your life (and why):
A:  
I have two. In my younger years, it would have been my older brother. When I was younger there was a time when he took care of me and my older sister for about a year. Now it would have to be my parents. They have given up everything they want to give their children the best that they can. These two leaders have been selfless and are amazing human beings.

Q: What do you do on your days off?
A:
Just spend time with my family – being with them bring so much joy in my life.
