Lionbridge Recruiter, Marc-Antoine


What does a typical work day look like for you?

A typical work day for me involves various tasks, from monitoring our site’s Facebook page to assisting my colleagues with their emails and offering advice on difficult questions. I’ve been in recruitment for two and a half years now, and in general my days are about building up my teammates and trying to help turn Lionbridge AI into a well-oiled machine capable of efficiently and effectively meeting the needs of our clients.


What is your favorite place in your office?

The coffee machine: not only do I love coffee, I also get the chance to meet with my colleagues from other departments and catch a glimpse of what is going on in the office.

What is the most exciting opportunity on the horizon for your team this year?

The expansion of our team and that we are getting more opportunities to work with other Lions all over the world.
