About Andrea Venezio

Since 2004, Andréa Venezio has been an executive recruiter for Kaye/Bassman Internation, the largest single-site search firm in the country. In 2005, Andrea was quoted in the Wall Street Journal for the article "To Snag a Job Offer, Learn What Damage You Do in Interviews." The article stated: "A Kaye/Bassman managing partner interviewed dot-com business manager Andrea Chamberlain (Venezio) last spring for a recruiter's spot. As their session concluded, he told the curious applicant that she was unqualified. She reiterated her strengths. "I may not have the recruiting experience you're looking for," Mrs. Chamberlain remembers saying. "But I have the energy, I'm motivated and I want to work for your company." Kaye/Bassman subsequently invited her to interview with a different managing partner. He hired her the day they met." In 2009, Andréa became the regional director for the Northeast Surgery Center division and in 2013, was promoted "For me, recruiting is the greatest job in the world, because we impact people's career, by giving them better opportunities that improve their overall quality of life."
