A Day in the Life of Talent Recruiter John Hughes

by John Hughes - October 30, 2019

Welcome to The Vital Life, where we spotlight Vital Proteins employees. This week, Talent Recruiter John Hughes gives us an inside peek at his work day.

Working at Vital Proteins has been one of the most rewarding professional experiences I’ve had. To be a part of a company that promotes health and wellness like Vital does only makes coming to work that much easier.

Being a Talent Recruiter at Vital Proteins forces me to learn almost every function of the business. Anywhere from finance and sales to marketing and innovation, it’s extremely important to know all the nuances of these departments. This is what I love about my job the most! The fact that I get to learn about how we operate as a company makes my time here at VP that much more exciting and rewarding.

My day to day as a recruiter is never the same. However, I usually start and end my day the same way to make sure I am prepared for everything that needs to be done that day. As a recruiter, I post, source and interview candidates that are interested in joining Team Vital. This is another great part about my job, as every day I get to talk about the benefits of collagen and how great it is to work for this growing CPG company. I also get to act as a business partner to other employees here at Vital in efforts of finding the best talent to join our teams. I start and end my days with a list of what I got done and what needs to be done in the next day or week.

There are always moving parts to the business that can happen at any point. I like to make sure that nothing falls through the cracks and that I stay on top of my responsibilities.

And since I work at a collagen supplement company, I always make it a point to incorporate our collagen products into my daily wellness routine. Some of my favorites include our Collagen Water™ and Collagen Whey. Collagen Water™ is a great grab-and-go option that helps me stay hydrated. I always reach for the Lemon Ginger and Blueberry Mint flavors! As for the Collagen Whey, I’m a big fan of the Dark Chocolate & Coconut Water flavor. I always make it a point to take the Collagen Whey after a workout.

Lastly, what makes my job so rewarding is hiring new and talented folks to join us on this journey. Seeing teams grow and benefit from these skilled individuals makes all the hard work worth it!
