FunkLeslie (002)KNF&T Staffing Resources is excited to announce that Leslie Funk has been named the 1st quarter winner of KNF&T’s 2016 Staffing Employee of the Year contest.

During a transitional phase in her career, Leslie heard of KNF&T through a mutual connection and was put in touch with our Executive Vice President, Beth Cabrera. Upon meeting, Beth recognized that Leslie had a strong set of skills that were applicable for a position dear to our hearts– a Sourcer for KNF&T!

“I did not anticipate walking out of that meeting with a job at KNF&T,” reflected Leslie. “I was so excited that it could be that easy. It was very uplifting.”

Leslie took to the position immediately. KNF&T’s Boston Branch Manager, Jillian Ciarletta, noted that Leslie “…impressed us all. She picked up the job in a matter of days and was a natural on the phones — she had the right instincts about people and a great conversational flow. Not only was she able to meet the metrics we set out for her, but she was also extremely reliable, communicative, and open minded.”

Leslie grew up in Acton, MA. She received her BA from the University of Connecticut in 2008, and Hamline University School of Law in St. Paul, MN, in 2014. She is currently working at Community Mediation Services, in Queens, NY.
