Congratulations on your new job, Andrew! So glad we were able to play a part in your story!

Andrew Tabalbag needed help paying his college tuition.

When he was looking for a job, his friend recommended he try TERRA.

Andrew called the Tukwila office and scheduled an interview with Sarah Fields, Recruiting Coordinator. After talking to Andrew about his skills and expectations, Sarah could see him doing well in a variety of positions.

He had experience in tutoring high school students, driving, working in the food industry, and doing warehouse work.

The Tukwila team had a few opportunities that they shared with Andrew. But, he admitted, he wasn’t entirely sure what he wanted. And with each new potential job he learned more about what he didn’t want.

Stephanie Launius, Tukwila Recruiter, helped Andrew navigate the process.

Andrew shared, “Stephanie was really receptive to what I was looking for. She made all the necessary adjustments, and she accommodated me in a way that made it seem easy.”

Eventually a data entry position caught Andrew’s eye. While the role itself was brand new to Andrew, he was familiar with the work that the job entailed.

Stephanie was able to help him land the job.

“I love it here! I enjoy the significance of my job. They explain the why behind each task and what it means to the company,” said Andrew. “Each day feels challenging and new, but I’m confident that I can fulfill the duties asked of me.”

The client agreed. They were impressed with Andrew’s follow-through, his performance and his ability to fit in with the team.

And we are thrilled to share that he was hired on full-time after just over a month with the company!

Andrew had initially been unsure about what to expect working with TERRA, but is now a fan and promoter! He’s even recommended TERRA to his brother – who we were also able to help find employment!
