What is a fun fact about yourself that people might not know?

Veronica Arevalo

When I was a young student, I had a cousin named Claudia. We grew up together and had similar childhoods. We were doing everything together and people thought we were sisters. I remember praying every day to get a young sibling but as I grew up, I realized that she was my soul sister. I was praying, but God already gave her to me. I am grateful that Claudia is like a sister to me.

What is your favorite thing about working at fusionSpan?

The work culture here is great. When I speak of work culture It’s about how well fusionSpan takes care of its employees by following the Value “Culture of Caring” which creates the environment for skills and career growth. I always share this with candidates when speaking to them in interviews. I tell them how we follow our culture despite being distributed around the world and working virtually. I enjoy working here because of the culture of this company and the people I work with. I don’t think it’s very common for any company to have such a strong culture.

What are some of your hobbies or interests?

I have a sweet tooth, so I have a passion for cooking and baking with a particular focus on desserts. I also love making jewelry. I like to reconnect with nature, especially the beach. I am a sunset chaser and I love capturing those moments in photographs no matter where I am. These are the things that bring me peace and remind me of my childhood. And I always love to explore new places or new restaurants with my husband.

What are some of your favorite things about your job?

Since I joined fusionSpan in 2021, every day I met people around the globe, and this is what I love about my job – people in general. I am a part of their journey, and I am able to impact  someone’s life. I have an opportunity to talk to people, so I may be changing their day, or maybe when we make an offer we may change the life of that person & their families. So here I am, not just impacting a person, but also the whole family, a whole community, and so on.

How has your career grown since joining the team?

I have grown in many ways here. When I was hired by fusionSpan, I thought I would be working in a specific region, but I was given the opportunity to pursue global talent. That was my first career challenge and my path to growth. Having previously been employed to hire in Latin American countries, it has been a real boost to my learning and career growth here. I started with specialized sourcing & searches. Then,  I was promoted to Senior Talent Acquisition specialist. Now I am working to continue to attract the best talent. I am really happy that I was able to join the journey of this company. I have grown here personally & professionally and am really glad to be a part of this amazing organization.

Before working here, what was the most unusual or interesting job you had?

I really had this entrepreneurial spirit. I have sold a variety of things from food to jewelry to desserts that I have made. I had a degree in marketing, so my first job was in sales. I sold clothes and dealt with customers, but since this was my first job, I wasn’t sure about this decision at first until I discovered recruiting and I have never looked back since.

What does your ideal weekend look like?

Veronica Arevalo

I enjoy spending time with my family and loved ones. I enjoy exploring new places and meeting good company. Ideally, what I love most is nature. Even a small act of kindness fills me up and gives me energy for the week.

What is your dream meal or favorite food?

I love pizza and real pasta, which contains real, fresh vegetables, herbs, and sauces, unlike packaged or processed goods.

How do you spend your free time?

I like to spend my time consciously, figuring out what I am doing to improve my daily life and trying to be a better version of myself.

What is your favorite movie?

I’m a huge fan of Anne Hathaway and I love the movieThe Devil Wears Prada.”
