Daniela Dos Santos
MANAGING DIRECTOR, RECRUITMENT PROJECTS, TORONTO
While attending Glendon, York University’s bilingual campus, I studied French and History. Alongside my education, I also worked part-time as a Nutrition Aide at Toronto General Hospital. In this role, I leveraged my people skills in a new way: I found that I love people – talking to them, listening to what they have to say, how they think, and in the midst of all of that, seeing how I can help them. Upon graduating, I decided to attend George Brown College in pursuit of my post-graduate diploma in Human Resources Management. I was confident that exposure into Human Resources would lead me to a career that involved working with people and also tap into my already developed skills. I completed a 4 month internship with Sales Talent Agency and learned about sales, interviewing, recruitment and the business world; the transition from being in a class room to a lively office environment was a welcome change!
I was elated when I was extended the opportunity to work full-time as an Account Manager. One year later I was promoted to a Senior Account Manager, and was tasked with training new team members. I learned a lot in my role as a Senior Account Manager, and this really motivated me to become a leader with Sales Talent Agency.
In the summer of 2016 I was promoted to an Account Director, and I currently manage an amazing energetic and successful team of 5 Account Managers. At Sales Talent Agency, I work with talented, energetic, passionate people that are equally as dedicated to their business partners as I am.
For the love of sales!
