This October, we met up with the world’s least spooky—but probably the world’s nicest—person: Sales Recruiter Kelsey Price. Kelsey loves French bulldogs (especially famous ones, like the ones on her desk calendar), listening to podcasts, and selling SVG as one of Kansas City’s best companies.
So … what do you do?
Well, I basically recruit and find new sales professionals that will fit in perfectly here at SVG.
What’s your favorite part about your job?
I love selling Spring Venture Group as a company and as an employer because I genuinely believe in the things I’m telling prospective employees. I only want to be saying stuff that I personally know is true and that I can speak to from personal experience.
What kind of people does your team look for?
We look for motivated people. We look for people that might want to do more than what they’re doing now and have a true passion to succeed. Our in-depth and—honestly outstanding—training program can teach anyone the skills needed, but employees have to come in with drive, commitment, and an overall self-motivation to contribute to something on both an individual and team level.
Say I’m a prospective employee—what’s your elevator pitch?
Our focus on our people is our number-one asset. You can feel it in the way people interact with each other all around the office. No matter what role someone is in within the company, they are given a level of credibility and are relied upon to do work. From entry level to senior positions, every single person here matters and it’s evident in our culture.
What do you do outside of work?
Family is huge for me. When I’m not at work, I spend most of my free time with them. I also go to all the home K-State games (Go ‘Cats!), which is where I went to college.
I’m also at that age where all of my friends are starting to get homes, so it’s been a lot of fun hanging out with them, hosting dinners, and having people over. Kansas City is such a great place to grow up and get older because there’s no end of things to explore.
It sounds like you like people. Is that a fair assumption?
I love being around people and making connections, but I think I’m equally introverted when it comes to relaxing and recharging. I like to be by myself sometimes and recharge by listening to podcasts, like those by Rachel Hollis.
I’ve been shifting from just vegging out in front of a television to actually feeding myself with information. Taking that time for myself is definitely how I come back to work clearheaded.
