What qualities makes someone successful at LT?
They have grit and they’re fun to work with. Someone with those two traits will accomplish great things at LendingTree.
What would you give as an interview tip to someone?
Prepare, prepare, prepare. Learn everything you can about the company and the people you’ll be interviewing with. You need to spend time practicing your answers to likely interview questions. The 7th time you give an answer to a question will inevitably be much better than your 1st, so let the first 6 times be in front of a mirror. Situational questions can me the most difficult to answer so spend most of your time practicing them. Also, looking at the job descriptions for other positions will give you a better understanding of the traits the company likes to see. Lastly, you should practice doing case studies – there are a ton of examples online.
What is your favorite aspect about your job?
The people! Yes, LendingTree is very selective in who we hire but a great byproduct of that is we get to work with bright, passionate, hard-working people every day.
If you had a time machine that would work only once, what point in history would you want to visit?
I would go back to March, 14, 44 BC and tell Julius Caesar to call in sick for work the next day.
Name one thing on your “bucket list”.
Answering questions for a Recruiting Spotlight. Check.
What advice have you received that’s been the most rewarding?
