I joined Makosi for three reasons: I trusted the leaders of the firm, the work was interesting and the projects were in line with my career aspirations in New York. Those three reasons remain almost 8 years later however what the firm has also given me is a work life balance, a sense that I am helping others in my community, loyalty, a unique range of work experience and a set of a values unlike any other firm I worked for before. The team has worked hard to get to where we are. We have also had a lot of fun along the way and we strive to reach higher levels of success, enjoyment and community engagement at HQ daily.”

I love working for Makosi I personally like that no two days are the same in fact no two hours are the same.  Each day I come to work I encounter new challenges that allow my knowledge and skillset to be used to the fullest.  

The culture at Makosi is that of a family, where we work together and get the job done.  Makosi is top notch.  

I completely loveeee working for Makosi almost as much as I love Mangoes.

Doing business with heart is what set Makosi apart and what attracted me to the organization. After establishing several years of experience in Talent Acquisition, I wanted to be with an organization that was not bottom line-driven and supported my passion for helping people find fulfilling career paths. Being an advocate of success stories, I’m glad to know I’m with a company who shares the same sentiments and has been organically growing with that very goal in mind.

To me, the best part of Makosi are the people I work with and the team environment we have created. We are accountable for our actions and always encouraged to use our own initiative in building a legacy of Makosi.

I chose Makosi because it presented me with a unique career opportunity and a chance to take on new responsibilities. As someone who had recruited for 4 years, the Concierge position was intriguing because it still allows me to build relationships with consultants but also work closely with HR and a Relationship Manager. It was a hybrid position that to me was the best of both worlds. As a Concierge, we are involved in many aspects of the business at Makosi and that to me was exciting. ”

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Makosi (New York, NY) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Quick process wherein I met with one of the associate who did recruiting. Had a good chat with him and a senior associate, and was told that they would move very quickly.

    After a week they told me that they were awaiting details from a client, and they forwarded over the details to me to review.

    After that? Complete silence. I had to call them again to follow up almost a month later, and they came back with saying that another client might be interested.

    Unfortunately I still haven't received a response. It has been close to 2 months and am yet to be told whether or not I will be selected for the position.
