Chase is a former football and club basketball player who studied Business Communications at Stevenson University in Pikesville, MD. Being on Stevenson’s sports teams was where Chase learned how to simultaneously be competitive, and work on a team to achieve a common goal. During a later internship as the Fort Belvoir Assistant coach, his focus pivoted from player to leader. As the assistant coach, Chase not only taught young kids how to play football, but was a role model supporting them on and off the field. “I was there for whatever they needed.”
While at Stevenson, Chase took a variety of writing classes that involved interviewing students and staff across the university. Chase enjoyed these conversations – connecting with people and having unique, meaningful conversations that ultimately led to a great human-interest story. “They trusted me and I knew that by relating to them and formatting the right questions. I could craft a good interview, but most importantly get to know a new person.” He did not realize that this effort would lead to a career, but that is how it turned out for Chase.
As someone who’s always been passionate about people and understanding their goals, recruiting offered Chase the perfect start! His first stint in recruiting was with Aerotek. He enjoyed interviewing candidates and supporting them in being placed in roles that would advance their careers. Chase is now expanding that passion to connect and advance the goals and careers of others at TalentFront!
“I enjoy being more hands-on and being a part of an overall process that is helping companies grow. I feel like this is important work and not just personally rewarding.”
As a Talent Recruiting Associate, Chase spends his day reviewing resumes, scheduling, coordinating and conducting interviews. Chase lives in Georgia, and when he isn’t working, he likes to keep busy working out, playing basketball and video games with friends, reading, and journaling!
Chase’s Advice for Job Seekers
“A lot of people don’t believe in themselves, and it’s really easy to get down on yourself, especially when you’re job hunting. But trust the process, the position that you’ve always wanted is right around the corner so work hard and believe that, and everything will work out.”
