Meet the Team – Michael Dos Santos, Search Consultant

Meet Michael Do Santos, Search Consultant – Engineering and Operations Practice

Although he’s resided in Bel Air, MD for much of his life, Michael is a loyal New York Yankees and Giants fan. His family is originally from New York, and his extended family is in Portugal – all of who have made sacrifices for Michael to be able to attend college and pursue a career.

Michael joined CSP in 2022 after spending almost two years in the talent acquisition industry focused on lower-level industrial positions. After gaining recruiting experience and developing connections in the industry at another firm, Michael transitioned to CSP where he would have the opportunity to focus on higher-level positions and build closer relationships with clients and candidates. “CSP is truly a special place that keeps its word on its four core values: communication, commitment, consistency, and integrity. My values and CSP’s core values align perfectly and I feel like I am a part of a family,” said Dos Santos.

A driving factor for Michael is that his role gives him the ability to have such a large and positive impact on people’s lives. “I have recognized in this industry that if you treat people with respect, they will never forget you and the service that you provided to them. I have the opportunity to even impact those who don’t land a job by coaching them and helping them understand how they can further develop themselves so that they will have a better chance of landing a job next time. It’s all very rewarding to me.” 

When Michael is not building a talent pool of Manufacturing Engineers, Quality Engineers, Project Engineers, and C-level Construction and Labor roles, he spends time coaching a high school-level baseball team and hiking trails in the region with his friends. He hopes to follow in his parent’s footsteps and plant a foundation for himself in the Baltimore area as he looks to purchase a home soon.
