Executive SAP Recruiter
Sara De Cruz was born and bred in Sydney, and with Malaysian Chinese and Indian parents, she’s the perfect example of a true hot pot Sydney citizen. Coming off a double degree in Law and Media from Macquarie University, Sara decided the rigidity of law wasn’t quite for her – so here she is trying her hand at becoming one of the best SAP recruiters in Sydney!
Sara enjoys sunsets and long walks on the beach – kidding. Sara love all things cooking and eating, and if she could do that while watching movies and playing video games, she would. Chuck in a bunch of friends and family and Sara’s a happy camper.
Sara also goes to the gym as atonement for her food sins!
What makes you unique in your field?
I think that the puzzle people present is the most interesting thing about recruiting. Minds change and I love that! I adore the challenge of anticipating movements and adapting to people’s changing perceptions and beliefs. I am a rookie in all ways though, so I’m excited to use this ability in the SAP recruitment world.
Why do talented people trust you as a recruiter?
It’s easy to hear, but it’s harder to listen. When you listen, you learn so much from a person and what they really want out of an opportunity, a job, a life. I’d like to think that my ability as a listener makes me not just a trustworthy recruiter, but a great recruiter.
What is your greatest achievement?
In 2017 I packed up my life and moved to Gothenburg, Sweden for six months to study in intensive Intellectual Property Law. I was the only student selected from Macquarie University. I desperately missed my family and friends, however the people I met and the experiences I had in Sweden were so life-changing and incomparable to anything else I have ever done!
What would your friends say about you?
That I’m a bottomless pit for all things food (especially donuts and cookies) and I shovel down food as fast as I can cook it.
Who would you invite to your dinner party?
I’d invite my Mum, because Lord knows she’d be in the kitchen checking if I’d cooked my roast pork for long enough anyway.
