Meet the Recruiter: Christine Woods

Christine PaintingEpic Consultant Advisor Christine Woods' bubbly personality is a result of her child actor days and years spent in news, media and communications roles before becoming a recruiter four years ago. Christine graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Communication, Broadcasting and English Literature from the University of Tennessee and enjoys volunteering, running and spending time with her family (which includes her father-in-law, University of Georgia "super fan" Big Dawg).

Q: How did you get here (to Alpharetta and HIT Leaders)?
A: A friend of mine who worked with several of the principals for about 15 years at B2B Workforce referred me. I have about an hour and half commute here, so I don’t live in Alpharetta (I like the job THAT much).

Q: What is your favorite HIT Leaders company memory?
A: Last year’s Christmas party was a lot of fun. I really, truly like the people I work with – we are like family in so many ways. We are all so busy all the time and rarely get to enjoy each other’s company in a purely social setting.

Q: Who would you most like to meet, in history or current?
A: Jesus

Q: What’s your favorite thing to do outside of work?
A: Run

Q: What was your favorite TV show when you were little?
A: Different Strokes

Q: What’s your favorite food or favorite kind of food?
A: I like merengue cookies. I could eat them every day, all day.

Q: If you could be an animal, what animal would you be and why?
A: A Bird. I want to fly.

Q: Least favorite animal and why?
A: Spiders. They are creepy.

Q: What would you do or buy if you won the lottery?
A: I would buy a house at Rosemary Beach, Fla.

Q: What’s your favorite thing about recruiting?
A: Speaking with intelligent people.

Q: If your life was a movie, who would play you?
A: Christina Applegate, pretty much because she is a more glamorous me. You know, if I had a trainer and a stylist. And seven extra inches in height.

Q: What about you would surprise your coworkers?
A: I’m pretty much an open book, but they probably don’t know that when I was 10 years old, I flew by myself to Jamaica to stay at a resort my best friend's dad was building. I lied about my age so I could become scuba-certified – I told them I was 12 years old instead.
