Nicole Jandreau || Talent Acquisition Consultant

Nicole’s strengths are building relationships, developing rapport, and executing the task at hand efficiently and timely. Her expertise really comes from the fact that she has been the person in this position before. She has been the person looking for her next role so she can relate and understand what that really means for someone in their search. She has also been the recruiter and understands what the managers are looking for and how to tap into that with candidates. She has been told managers do not worry when she is their recruiter because they know the job will get done to their expectations. She feels proud that she is trusted and looked at as a positive resource for those she serves.

Nicole tries to meet the person where they are at, whether it’s a candidate or hiring manager. It’s important to understand everyone is different and she can be flexible to their needs and wants while advising and helping in multiple ways. She is adaptable, strategic, hard-working, and fun!

Her three favorite things are her two wonderful kids, to laugh and to travel. Her goal is to travel to all 7 continents. She has been to four so far. Her most favorite travel to date was Hawaii. She was fortunate enough to have traveled to Oahu for a friend’s wedding and fell in love with the island, culture, and people. It’s a magical place and she cannot wait to go back!

She is excited to work at M3 Placement and Partnership because she is interested in doing more for her clients. She wants to not only provide recruitment services for them, but to provide strategic partnerships through advisement and HR services. She wants to be a trusted advisor and resource of knowledge so they can learn, while fulfilling their recruitment needs.

Shelby Whalen || Talent Acquisition Associate || https://www.linkedin.com/in/shelby-whalen/

Shelby’s strengths include communication and creating a calming yet open environment. She believes that these two aspects will bring value to the M3 team by having a trusting environment between her team members as well as clients and candidates.

An experience that has shaped her professional career has been customer service. It has taught her how to effectively communicate, show empathy, and have confidence in difficult times. The best kudo she ever received from a client is that she brings a calming and positive presence, especially during stressful times.

Her approach is simple; be as honest and up front as possible. In the past, the clients she has worked with have appreciated that and have trusted her more because of it. She is dedicated, determined, compassionate and excited to join M3 because of the atmosphere of the M3 team and connecting with candidates and hiring managers.

She is originally from Buffalo, NY but currently resides in Denver, CO. She loves to hike and backpack. Her favorite trips so far have been Conundrum Hot Springs in Aspen and Sky Pond in Rocky Mountain National Park. When she is not in the mountains, she enjoys reading thrillers and romance novels.
