Thanks for letting us play a part in your story, Mike!

Mike Swanson is an experienced Senior Quality Engineer with great knowledge of process and manufacturing engineering.

He was looking to take his skills and qualifications to the next level.

At the same time, Amber Low, TERRA Technical Division Manager, was doing a search of her own. She was looking for a qualified Senior Quality Engineer for a client who was having difficulty finding the right fit.

As fate would have it, her research led her to Mike.

Amber thought that his impressive background made him a great fit for the role. She shared, “Mike has held a variety of positions in the manufacturing realm. He is someone who could fully understand the great picture. He originally started his career as a certified welder and worked his way up into engineering-related roles, including quality. He has extensive experience working with steel and most recently had been working with an aerospace company that worked with formed and flat aluminum components.”

She added, “He was the whole package. I knew he’d be a good fit.”

The process moved quickly.

Amber presented Mike to the client. They scheduled a phone interview with him that same day. A week later, he had an in-person interview. The next day he was offered the job!

Amber said, “The client thought he had all the right skills. And he really clicked with the team. They hadn’t met anyone who had the skill set and was a culture fit. Like me, they knew that he was the whole package.”

Mike is enjoying his new role. “Before I was mostly doing paperwork,” he shared. “Now I am making more of an impact on quality. I’ve already helped impact some processes. The role has helped me get to where I want to be.”

This was not Mike’s first experience working with a staffing agency, but he thought working with TERRA was different. “Amber kept me involved on daily basis – even more if necessary.”

When we asked him if he would recommend TERRA to someone looking for work, he said, “I already have!”
