j-brooks-interview_11-08-16Name:  Jesse Brooks

Nickname:  Some people call me JB, some people call me Jess, some people call me Jesse James. To be safe just call me Jesse.

Position @ Juno:  Talent Associate, IT Division

If you weren’t a Recruiter, what would you be? A jet setter, can’t spend too much time in one place.

Favorite thing about Philadelphia? Being able to walk to everything I need, sitting in traffic makes me feel as if I’m losing years off of my life.

Do you have any secret skills? I do, and a secret they will remain. J

If you were a TV or movie character, who would you be? I’d like to say V, people who know me would say either Scar or Jafar.

You get to pick one person, dead or alive, to have lunch with – who would it be? Everyone knows I like to eat lunch alone.

You are on death row – what is your last meal? I’d invite Gordon Ramsey to create something for me, if he was unavailable at the time then I’d settle for fava beans and a nice chianti. If you don’t get that reference, pretend I said Chicken Piccata.

Favorite song of all time? *scrolls through favorites playlist and randomly chooses one* “Lady in my Life” – Michael Jackson

Favorite movie of all time? V for Vendetta

If you could live anywhere else, where would it be? Some place where it’s always warm. I’m not the biggest fan of Winter.

Where is the best cheesesteak in Philadelphia? Chicken Cheesesteaks > Cheesesteaks

Favorite family tradition? It’s a new one, but going to Alabama over Thanksgiving to attend the Iron Bowl. (Roll Tide)

What is the best piece of advice you ever received? “Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.” While I don’t necessarily always abide by that, can’t deny how important that is in everyday life.

Biggest Pet Peeve?  Christmas music before Thanksgiving (…or after, but I get it.)

Strangest recruiting/resume moment: There’s an interesting “catfish” story, but I won’t go into any detail…
