Monica Sweeney is a Talent Acquisition Manager at Alaant Workforce Solutions. She has risen steadily in the organization, starting with an internship in 2016 and followed by full-time positions as a Recruiting Assistant and Resource Manager, before being elevated to her current role.
Monica sees herself as a matchmaker who connects top employers with exceptional talent. She enjoys working with clients to understand the skills and experience they need to grow their businesses; meeting with candidates to learn what they desire in their next role; and then executing the process of sourcing, vetting and interviewing to bring the two together. To assist a company in hiring the employee they need to thrive, while at the same time helping a professional secure a life-changing position, is a heartwarming feeling.
A graduate of Siena College with a bachelor’s degree in management, Monica achieved her Associate Professional in Human Resources (aPHR) in 2019. This knowledge-based credential recognizes individuals beginning their HR career journey who have successfully demonstrated foundational knowledge of human resources. She serves on the membership committee of the Capital Region Human Resource Association, and loves to cook, relax on the beach, and overly pamper her cats, Milo and Daisy.
