My Hallam story starts back before I even graduated from college. I attended a seminar about interviewing from the employers perspective that was given by John Butterfield. That's when I first became interested in Hallam. I frequently saw them at job fairs that were offered. Once I graduated and saw an open position I applied right away and began the interview process. I was hired in 2004.
I began working in Electrical Design and did that for my first four years. One day I began working on an Arc Flash project with Don Folts. I was fascinated by it and spent as much time both in and out of work studying it as much as I could. Not too long after, I signed up for an SKM training in Atlanta, GA. That was a trip to remember. There was a weather delay and though I had made it out of VT, they couldn't get me out of New York until the next day. Every hotel for miles was booked. I was left with no choice other than to spend the night at the LaGuardia airport. I hope I never have to do that again. Thankfully, the rest of the trip went much smoother. As I continued to work more and more with Arc Flash, I became the Technical Supervisor.
I spent a good portion of my Hallam career in the VT office working on projects all over the Eastern US. In 2016 I relocated to our swiftly growing Raleigh, NC office. Being in Raleigh, I still get to work with Scott King who has been my supervisor during my entire career with Hallam and I no longer have to shovel snow. That is a win all around for me. I'm very happy to have found a great company with a relaxed, friendly atmosphere that treats their employees so well. I'm glad I went to that seminar way back in college.
