About Sharon Alderson:
As Creative Niche’s Global Lead, her career as a Nicher kicked off in May, 2010, after working as a recruiter at two renowned search firms—positions that provided the global recruitment background and knowledge she leverages every day in her current position. Ultimately, it was that natural inquisitiveness and ability to adapt to any situation that attracted Sharon to the recruitment field in the first place. As she puts it, there is a limitless amount of ‘stuff’ to learn about candidates, clients and the evolution of technology. Staying on top of it all is a challenge she’s embraced wholeheartedly.
