TERRA Helped Me Land a Promotion and My Dream Job All At Once

EdrickEdrick Tiamzon was an employee of a former TERRA client. But at the end of 2014, the business moved its offices out of state and Edrick found himself searching for another job.

Since his former employer partnered with TERRA for staffing help, he decided he would reach out for assistance on his job search.

He met with Emily Kaplan, Seattle Recruiter. When she heard about his background in retail and logistics, she immediately presented him to a client who was looking to fill a Supply Chain Management role.

After six interviews with the client, Edrick was offered the job – his dream job!

Did we mention that this position was also a step above his former position?

Emily had this to share regarding her experience with Edrick, “He was an absolute pleasure to work with. His communication was excellent and his patience was admirable. Many months after helping him find his dream job, we are still in contact.”

Now he is in a job he’s always wanted and is already helping to make significant changes to company technology, by helping to implement a new ERP system!

Let’s hear about Edrick’s experience working with TERRA on his job search.

Tell us a little about you and your background.

I have a degree in Political Science, as well as an MBA. I also have over 20 years of experience in Operations and Logistics Management – from retail to wholesale environments.  I am currently working as a Senior Inventory Control and Reverse Logistics Manager.

How did you hear about TERRA?

My former employer used to work with TERRA to help staff additional warehouse workers for our seasonal and other business spike needs.

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

Excellent! TERRA was very accommodating and quick to follow-up. Emily Kaplan stayed with me as her candidate throughout the entire process. She was ready with advice. She also honestly confessed that she did not know the specifics of the Supply Chain industry but was willing and able to learn. She learned enough to be able to articulate the need and present me as her candidate to the potential employer. It was also quite easy to bounce ideas with her. She was very supportive.

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

Emily Kaplan and Nichole Cunningham.

What else would you like us to know?

TERRA is doing a great job and they should continue to staff for upper management positions!

Thank you Edrick for sharing your story and allowing us the chance to play a role in your success!
