Daniel Webb had experience working in residential banking, in the fraud department. When he moved to Bellevue, WA about two years ago, he worked for a finance company downtown.

But about four months into the job, Daniel realized he wanted something different.

He was interested in partnering with a staffing firm on his job search, but wasn’t sure where to turn. “After looking around and talking with friends, TERRA Staffing Group consistently came up,” Daniel said.

He contacted TERRA’s Kirkland office and spoke to Recruiter, Carmen Kier.

Carmen thought Daniel had some great experience and was an excellent communicator. And he was extremely flexible and open to a variety of roles which allowed the entire Kirkland team to keep Daniel steadily employed until he found a job that was right for him.

“I first started doing odd jobs like working special events, doing residential moves, bottling whiskey, and anything they needed me to work on. Next, I worked doing accounts payable.”

Recruiter, Yevon Yoo, had an administrative assistant position that she thought would be a good fit for Daniel.

She shared, “The role I was working on was a great growth-based opportunity where he could prove himself working in a large team and establish a full-time, stable career. His administrative experience in finance demonstrated his strong attention to detail and his organizational skills.”

To say that the client liked Daniel is an understatement. Just a week after he started, the client contacted Yevon saying, “We need another Daniel Webb!”

Within two weeks, he was given leadership responsibilities, leading a crew for different projects, and became a lead project coordinator!

A month into the job, he received a bump in pay!

And Daniel couldn’t be happier. “This position really allows me to use all of my current skill set, and grow a new set.”

When asked how his experience with TERRA compared to his experience with other staffing agencies, Daniel shared, “I have only had a chance to work with one other agency and while they were great, TERRA offers more positions and the chance to work with multiple agents, instead of being locked into working with one agent.”

Daniel also wanted to thank the Kirkland team. “Anytime I needed a question answered or a situation dealt with, I could always call them and they were quick to reply to my emails. Everyone at the Kirkland branch has been fantastic.”

We are so excited that we were able to help Daniel find a job he loves and we’d love to help you with your job search, too!
