Meet Kat Basca, Recruiter Working at MedPartners!
When did you start working at MedPartners?
February 26, 2007
What territory do you manage?
MO, KS, IL, WI, MI, IN
Brief summary of skills and/or specialties:
I recruit medical coders and make the best possible match with a hospital for contract assignment. I am also a career advocate and coach for my consultants.
What is an interesting/fun fact we would be surprised to learn about you?
How I got this job. My parents met Marci at World of Beer. She told them about MedPartners (the company was about 6 months old) and that they were hiring and then gave my parents her business card. I sent them my resume, interviewed with Bob and Marci and the rest was history.
What is your best work memory?
There are so many! But I have to say working in our first office space. It was the size of a walk-in closet, literally. There were 5 of us and the fax machine was on my desk, so I was in charge of passing out faxes. Oh, and there was no such thing as a “private conversation.”
What makes MedPartners different from any company you’ve ever worked for?
The biggest difference is the environment. We truly care for one another, look out for one another and are family. Yes, the income is a big perk, but having the flexibility to take care of personal matters, when they occur, is a blessing. It also helps having a fun work environment.
What core value (Be the Best, Understand the Urgency, Never Give Up, Have the Courage to Excel or Make A Contribution) do you relate to most, and why?
The core value I relate to most is “Never Give Up.” When I first started with Medpartners and started making money, I got ahead of myself, got comfortable and lost it all. It took a lot of patience, hard work and faith to build it all back up, but I never gave up and it made me a stronger and more successful recruiter. I had to fail in order to succeed.
