Employee Spotlight: Mike Szilagyi

What is a typical day for you like at Concentric?

My work is 100% remote, which allows me to mold my work day around other things I have going on. I may start the day with a couple hours of work, close my computer for a few hours, then conduct phone interviews in the afternoon, followed by a few hours of work in the evening. I love the flexibility my job allows for.


How long have you been at Concentric and what part of your job do you find most fulfilling?

I joined Concentric about six months ago. My team is constantly working to improve our processes and methods, and as a newer team member I really appreciate that my input is sought and valued. I also find it really satisfying when I find something in the course of an investigation that could easily have been missed or overlooked.


What is your educational and professional background before joining Concentric?

Before joining Concentric I worked as a police officer and patrol supervisor. I also conducted background investigations and was heavily involved in the training program for my department. Before that I completed my Bachelor’s degree in Global Supply Chain Management from Clarkson University, and spent a few years ski bumming in Colorado and California. I left my job in law enforcement to fulfill a dream I had to travel the world by sailboat. With new technology allowing for high speed internet anywhere I go, I feel lucky that I found this position with Concentric which allows me to travel and work at the same time.


What do you enjoy doing when you’re not working?

I live and travel full time on my sailboat with my wife and two dogs. I enjoy exploring new countries and cultures, free diving, spear fishing, and skiing when I’m back in the land of snow. A lot of my free time is spent fixing things that break while we are in remote places where parts are hard to come by.


What are you most looking forward to over the next year?

I am really excited to explore Central America over the next year. Professionally, I am most looking forward to helping out with training new Background Investigators and helping the Background Investigation program expand.
