Nora manages our Civil Engineering Practice nationwide, specializing in Transportation, including all aspects of Rail.  She's earned a BS in Advertising from San Jose State University and carries the prized CSAM designation reserved for a select few recruiting professionals who have met rigorous performance and knowledge requirements.

Nora began her career recruiting Professional Engineers 2005 with Management Recruiters International.  She and the owner of J Powers Recruiting, Inc., Jennifer Powers, have known and collaborated with each other since then, sharing candidates between their respective offices to better service their client’s needs. Nora’s first 5 years of recruiting resulted in breaking records at MR Templeton for the most billings of any account executive ever in 2007, and the most billings and placements of any rookie account executive at the end of her first year.  She and Jennifer have both achieved the MRI Network’s Pacesetter designation, ranking in the top 5% of all MRI recruiters.

Nora’s record of career placements is based on matching a candidate's motives, skills, and future plans with the client’s needs. Today she continues with a strict policy requiring that all information, pro and con, be laid out ahead of time on both sides. The intent is ensuring a successful match of personalities, strengths, company, and culture.

Nora has taken her mantra from the U. S. Navy SEABEES: "The difficult we do now, the impossible takes a little longer." Her past success with difficult assignments in the Civil Engineering sector stems from her appetite for embracing challenges combined with employment of a highly focused approach.  The greater the challenge, the more excited she becomes. Her clients and candidates reap the benefit.
