Why I Joined Zeren, By Sean Gurwich

Calendar icon 13th April 2022

By Sean Gurwich. Sean is an Associate at Zeren, and is based within our US West Coast team, as a member of our Global Research team, aligned to our Commercial and Marketing hiring verticals.

Why Zeren?


I was excited to join Zeren for many reasons. For starters, the VC and PE space, along with the magnitude of new investments in new Technology, has always intrigued me. Additionally, it was a great opportunity to be a part of an efficient company in the process of expanding their international presence.


Prior to working at Zeren, I kick-started my Recruiting career working with established Advertisement companies. I thoroughly enjoyed the process of building a team, and joining Zeren allows me to continue that process, alongside being a part of it.


My Role at Zeren


I am the newest, and currently the only member of the West Coast Research team here at Zeren. My role is to support my colleagues with building data-driven Target Landscapes, generating Candidate-fueled Market Intelligence, engaging with the wider Zeren network, and any additional duties that require extra support.


Prior Experience


As stated previously, before working with Zeren, I was a Recruiting Associate primarily working with Ad Agencies. It was then I learned the basics and fundamentals of the Staffing and Recruiting Industry. And before that, I was in the Hospitality sector, where I learned how to maintain a professional business relationship and provide excellent customer service.


My Career


Although my professional work career has just started, there are many things that I am excited about. The things that excite me the most about my career are building professional relationships, traveling, and experiencing different types of company cultures. By joining Zeren, I hope to experience this in the near future!
