I Was Ready to Just Take Any Job, But TERRA Found Me the Right Job

Jaeger Tregoning found himself suddenly unemployed when the plant he worked for closed its doors for the last time.
Though he had a great letter of reference from the employer, he never received a call back from the staffing agency he went to first.
His experience with TERRA was completely different and better.
Jaeger walked into the TERRA Everett office on a Monday with his resume in hand and scheduled an interview for the next day. When Tuesday rolled around, he called the office to cancel his interview. He’d been offered a different job and, eager to get back to work, he has accepted it.
Santana Grayson, then Everett Front Office Coordinator, brought Recruiter Katie Jones his resume, knowing that Katie definitely needed to at least speak with Jaeger.
One look at his resume and Katie called him immediately. “You’re too good to work at the job you’re being offered. I am working with a company here in Everett that needs a maintenance tech apprentice and I think you are perfect for the job. If I can get my client to meet with you this afternoon, would you consider it?”
Jaeger said yes.
Katie called her client and told them that if they didn’t act fast, they would miss out on a great candidate. The client set up a time to meet with him that afternoon.
It was the perfect fit. And Jaeger started his new job the next week!
Jaeger loves his new job and he’s so happy with the service he was provided, he’s encouraged his friends to give TERRA a try.
Jaeger shared some of his thoughts on his experience with TERRA.
Tell us a little about you and your background.
I am a typical guy. Never really got involved in school, which in the long run was a bad idea. I’m more of a hands-on learner. I love gaining and learning new skills that will be with me in the future.
How did you hear about TERRA?
I heard about TERRA from friends that I have worked with.
How did your experience with TERRA compare to what you expected or experienced from other staffing firms?
I worked with a staffing company before and had only heard about one job, which I turned down. After applying with a different agency, I heard nothing from them for months. I decided to give TERRA try. It was different.
Is there anyone specifically at TERRA you would like to thank?
I would like to thank Katie. She heard I’d dropped off a resume and immediately called me with a job offer then and there.
What else would you like us to know?
Just believing in yourself can get you far. In one year, I worked hard and followed the rules. I started and moved up to a supervisor role. Yeah, crazy, right?
Thank you for sharing your story, Jaeger, and for letting us play a role in it!
