Work hard. Play hard.

The Team

A team of friends

 

We're born recruiters, master networkers, and we know how to get it done. We also rule at shuffle board. Have pretty good taste in beer. And typically have some sort of bet going around the office. We asked our clients why they work with us, and while trusting in our fast delivery of top talent is the core need, it's the friendships they feel they have in the Juno team that keep them coming back.

South Jersey/Philly born, raised.

Dance, piano and a few other instruments, softball. Nothing stuck past age 16. Except loving to dance.

Was the girl you cheated off of in school. I guess I was smart and a bit of a teacher’s pet.

Needed a practical application of my psych degree – ended up in HR.

Moved to NC for a minute. Learned some line dancing and how to shoot a gun. Not a southern belle.

Back in Philly, realized I am a connector. Became a recruiter.

Juno placed me. I became one of their clients. 5 years later, here I am!

Juno NYC is born – and I have the privilege to lead it.

Back to dance. Fell in love with BalletX 10 years ago, joined the board 5 years ago, and now I lead that, too.

Serious travel addiction.

Love NYC.

Yoga. Pilates. Wine. Documentaries. Hoping to read a book soon.

Aunt (Zia, Tia) to many. Although only one by blood – my girl Katelyn.

You can find this Pisces by the water, preferably a beach.

Liz Schwerd   
Director, Project Recruitment

 

Est. 1982 – Piscataway, NJ

Raised in NJ, moved to Philly after college.  I’ve moved 19 times in my life between the two states – I’m shooting for a perfect 20 if we can find a house with a great pool!

Been with my husband for 11 years – Lived together for 10 years, had the engagement ring for 5 years, been engaged for 2 years, married 3 days before starting at Juno.  Tortoise wins the race!

Won a K-8 spelling bee when I was in Kindergarten.  Thanks to advances in technology, just googled “How do you spell kindergarten”.

There is a threshold for “cat lady” status – the total number of acceptable cats is the number of people in your household, plus one.  I have three cats right now, and the only time I think about having kids is when I meet cute kittens at the shelter.

Love games and puzzles.  Just learning there are other adults who share my philosophy – the best games are the ones that are boring and have the capacity to ruin relationships.

I’ve been working since I was 12 years old.  Thankfully the local beach motel didn’t know about child labor laws, and I earned great money and scored tons of free booze when guests checked out.

I’m terrible at small talk.  But I love meeting new people and learning about them, especially new ideas and perspectives.

Est. 1976 - Old Bridge, NJ

Born and raised in Central Jersey. 

Part nerd – part athlete. 

Went to an Ivy League school mostly because of the “part athlete”.

Lived in NYC and worked at CBS Sports where I became an expert at counting backwards and learned what it really means to work under pressure. 

Moved to Philly and managed to survive as a NY Giants fan.

Have been a matchmaker for employees and employers since 2005.  Hiring managers… swipe right!

Met my wife, Michelle, in 2010 where she went through a thorough screening and interview process until we got married in 2014.  

Moved back to Jersey in 2015 because I really missed a good jug handle (left turns are overrated) and had a little baby boy, Louis, in 2016.
