Giraffes Spring into Habitat Africa at Brookfield Zoo



Giraffes Spring into Habitat Africa

It is a sure sign that spring has arrived at Brookfield Zoo when the giraffes can be seen outside at Habitat Africa: Savannah.


Potoka, a 2-year-old male, especially enjoyed kicking up his hooves! He was joined by other members of the herd—Arnieta, 10, Jasiri, 11, and Mithra, 26. Watch the video of Potoka Giraffe at

JobGiraffe is Growing!

JobGiraffe would like to welcome its three newest team members: Alyssa Williams, Eva Miga and Michele Ortiz! We are very lucky to add these three very dynamic (and very qualified) people to the JobGiraffe “herd.”

Photo of AlyssaAlyssa is a graduate from the University of Kentucky where she studied Strategic Communication and Psychology. She is excited about joining the team, and is anxious to learn everything possible about the recruiting and staffing industry while building relationships within our unique JobGiraffe family. She loves animals, and was so thrilled to feed our giraffe friends Mithra, Arnietta, Jaseri and Potoka at Brookfield Zoo in her first week on the job!

Eva comes from a well-established background in banking management. Having recently graduated from Dominican University with a degree in Business Administration, Eva joined JobGiraffe in order to take the next step in her career. She has always enjoyed working with people, and can’t wait to help job seekers advance their careers by finding the perfect job for them. She also loves to travel! Her goal is visit one new country every year for the rest of her life in order to meet new people and experience new cultures.

Michele is an experienced office administrator and mother of two who is currently working towards her degree in Business Administration. Because she has experience with JobGiraffe as both a candidate and client, she jumped at the chance to join our team and further advance her management skills. She hopes to use her unique life experiences to help candidates along their career path. She’s also a competitive Latin dancer, but loves nothing more than hanging at home and playing games with her family.

We are so lucky to add these three outstanding individuals to our herd!
