Our new blog series, “Get to Know Us! Faces Behind the Brand,” gives you the opportunity to meet some of our staff here at Mediscan. This month, we’d like to introduce you to Juan Zendejas, a recruiter who has worked with Mediscan for the past decade.

The Presidents’ Club awards our top producers with an all-expenses paid trip to an exciting location annually.
How long have you worked with Mediscan?
I started with Mediscan in January of 2008.
What do you love most about working with Mediscan?
My favorite part of working for Mediscan is getting to know the people that work for us on assignment. Everyone is unique in what they want from a job or their reasons for accepting a job with us and I like finding that out. It makes for a smoother process when I do know and creates mystery when I don’t. Fun times!
What advice would you give to a new graduate wanting to pursue a career in school-based therapy?
Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Be candid and express want you want, what you know about the specific profession/job, and what you don’t. We’re here to help you identify the career opportunity that best suits your personal and professional goals, and it’s imperative you ask us as many questions as needed so that you are in the know. We want you to feel prepared for your upcoming interview as well as when you’re ready to begin your assignment.
What is your favorite memory of working with Mediscan?
My best memory in my time with Mediscan is when I was given the opportunity to recruit. I had no idea what I was getting into and I was scared about the new responsibilities and requirement to produce. Having been placed in the team that I was put in is what set me up to succeed and that is something I will never forget.
What motivates you in your role at Mediscan?
Within my current role, my motivation is to be a four-time Presidents Club Winner!
What keeps you busy when you’re not at work?
Outside of the office I am a family man that is passionate about baseball. I stay busy with my children and their sports/activities and I enjoy managing a Co-Ed Softball team.
Where is your dream vacation?
If I won a dream vacation to anywhere in the world I would go to Australia. I would love to see what life is like in the down under.
Tell us an interesting fact about you.
I married my high school sweetheart at age 18 and we are going on 13 years strong.
