Member Monday: Meet Kahlin Grant
It’s Member Monday and we’re featuring Synergy Billing Talent Acquisition Manager Kahlin Grant. Follow kahlingrant on Instagram and Kahlin.Kelly on Snapchat to keep up with her!
What is your business/career and/or side hustle?
I am the talent acquisition manager for Synergy Billing, a rapidly growing medical billing company in Daytona Beach. I don't look at myself as a recruiter as much as I do a marketer with recruiting tendencies. It is my job not just to find, but to attract the best talent and convert hires into employer brand ambassadors.
What’s one thing you’ve accomplished this year that made you feel boss?
I’ve created a unique employer branding and employee engagement campaign called #SynergyLife which has changed the way we recruit and market to potential talent in the community. We now are using the campaign on promotional items, and I even been asked to speak about it at an upcoming panel event on recruitment and retention. Also, I was honored as the Young Private Sector Professional of the Year by the Volusia Flagler Business Journal, which was a pretty boss moment!
What’s one piece of advice you’d like to share with other boss ladies who are pursuing their passions?
Your network is your net worth. Never underestimate or under value the power of networking and building your circles of connections. There is so much power in human to human connection- which is another reason why I love the Boss Lady Community. I always love the opportunity to meet someone new, as you never know where that connection will take you or them down the road.
What do you want to be known for?
I would like to be known as the go-to person for employer brand marketing and recruitment marketing, as well as a fun, caring goofball, and great mom and wife.
What books or resources have inspired or helped you the most?
Reading “Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office” helped transition me from being somewhat of an easy-going, people pleasing pushover, to embracing my own opinions, popular or not, trusting my gut and being more strategic in my decision making. Also, I think I've gotten as much inspiration from alone time as I have from meeting and conversing with new people. I think others help to spark the thoughts and ideas that with some self-reflection, can lead a firestorm of revolutions.
