TERRA Went Above and Beyond to Help Me Find the Perfect Fit with a Wonderful Company

Being out of work is challenging. You need a job, but you don’t want just any job. You want a job that’s right for you. At TERRA, we understand that, and we try our best to help people find the Right Fit. So, we are very excited to share the success story of Kacie Land.

Kacie was laid off and feeling “desperate” for work. Kirsten Poe, Recruiting Coordinator in our Everett office, was able to place her quickly – possibly too quickly. The job assignment she initially accepted met her short-term needs, but wasn’t a good long-term fit for her. Kacie shared that with Kirsten and clarified what a good fit would be for her.  Kirsten listened, and was able to place Kacie in a company she loves, doing a job she loves – and they love her, too!

How did you hear about TERRA?

I heard about TERRA Staffing when I was working for a dot com company in Everett. We had several temporary employees there that had been hired through TERRA to assist with the daily operations of the warehouse. I could see right away how excited these good people were to be working and making their lives better. 

A happy Kacie at work.

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

I have worked for other firms in the past that will place people in jobs that don’t necessarily fit their qualifications.  TERRA Staffing went above and beyond to help me find the perfect fit with a wonderful company, something not all employment agencies will do for people.  Their staff is caring and attentive; they make sure you are taken care of every step of the way.

Is there anyone specifically at Terra that you would like to thank?

I would like to thank Kirsten Poe for showing me that there are still people out there who really DO care and want to help make things better for others.  Kirsten, you changed my life and I will be eternally grateful for everything you have done for me.

What else would you like us to know?

I can say from experience that being unemployed can deeply impact a person’s confidence.  TERRA Staffing helped me pick my head up and get back on track by providing me with the opportunity to prove my capabilities. I even surprised myself!  Now, I am the proud employee of a company that values my skills and opinions.  TERRA enriches the lives of their employees.

Thank you, Kacie, for sharing your story and for allowing us to be a part of your success.
