Laci Dillard was born and raised in Globe, Arizona – about 80 miles east of Phoenix.
Straight out of high school, she entered the world of corporate banking. Finding the work interesting, she made it her career for the next 11 years.
But Arizona was all Laci knew. She wanted to travel somewhere different and gain new experiences.
Laci decided to take a seasonal position in Maine for five months.
But when summer came to an end, she had to return to Phoenix.
It was time to look for work again.
“I was hoping to find something I had experience doing in the past. But I also needed a job quickly. I kept an open mind since I needed income,” Laci said.
She did an online search and discovered TERRA Staffing Group. Eager to get to work, she called the West Phoenix TERRA branch and arranged an interview for later that week.
Laci met with Recruiter Carly Erickson.
Carly thought Laci was professional and personable. She had a client looking for a customer service representative and Laci’s personality and skill set made her an ideal candidate.
“I thought Laci would get along well with the hiring manager. She was also looking for stability and longevity which my client offers,” Carly said.
Laci started working just three days after her interview!
She said, “I was excited to hear I got the job and was surprised at how easy the process was!”
The client loves her.
“Laci’s personality and outlook were the right fit for our team. She also has an impressive skill set and job history. She’s a hard worker and strives to be the best she can be,” said the hiring manager.
Regarding the job itself, Laci said, “The people are fun and the company has a small, family-feel. It’s so gratifying to learn about something I’ve never done before. Every day is a new experience.”
She had this advice for people searching for new employment opportunities:
“Do your research. Keep an open mind. I wouldn’t have gone for this job normally, but I’m really glad I did!”
Congratulations on your accomplishments, Laci! We wish you continued success!
