Congrats on your new career opportunity, Ron!

When Ron Higgins first stepped foot in TERRA’s Tacoma office, he made a great first impression on Recruiting Coordinator, Teresa McGowan.

He was professional, polite and had an excellent resume.

Upon learning more about his employment history and his experience with the U.S.Navy, Teresa recommended him to Tacoma Recruiter, Scott Mantz.

Scott was also impressed by Ron and had an opportunity that he thought would be a good fit for him.

Multiple interviews with that client later and Ron was placed in a direct hire opportunity – just a few weeks after interviewing with Teresa!

Now he is in a Payroll Accounting Assistant role, and both the client and Ron couldn’t be happier.

We asked Ron to share a bit about his experience with TERRA and he was kind enough to oblige!

Tell us a little bit about you and your background.

My background includes 10 years in the U.S. Navy and a Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Design.

How did you hear about TERRA? 

When I moved to the Tacoma area from California I didn’t have any leads on jobs, so I just drove around in downtown Tacoma looking to find something. I saw a sign for TERRA. Then I went home and found their website.

How did your experience with TERRA compare to what you expected or experienced from other staffing firms?

TERRA Staffing exceeded all of my expectations for staffing firms. When I was in California I had experiences with another staffing agency that gave me the runaround and did not seem to have my future employment as a priority. From the moment I created an online profile with TERRA, they immediately emailed me back and seemed really motivated to help me get employed. My professional relationship with TERRA wasn’t very long, but that is because they quickly connected me with a job lead that turned into a career opportunity!

 Is there anyone specifically at TERRA you would like to thank?

I would specifically like to thank two TERRA staff members who helped keep me motivated and seemed to make my future career opportunities a priority:  Scott Mantz and Teresa McGowan.

What else would you like us to know?

I would like you to know that I continue to tell everyone who is looking relocate or get into a new career that TERRA Staffing should be one of their first, if not THE first resource.

Thank you again for sharing your story, Ron!
