Words are Erik’s friend. An award-winning journalist, recruiting blogger, and editor, he’s been hunched over a computer telling stories and nitpicking grammatical gaffes for over a decade. Erik spent four combined years in B2C marketing before he journeyed to the talent space in 2020 as content manager for Symphony Talent, where he owned multi-channel content marketing and executed industry-leading, innovative pieces like the 2021 Recruiting Marketing Strategies Report. Now at Paradox, Erik plans to start small: deliver the best damn content in the talent industry, period. He lives in Austin, TX, enjoys Tarantino movies, a good Old Fashioned, and the Oxford comma. And yes, he totally wrote this himself.
