After eight years working as a millwright, Jodi Fowler found herself looking for another full-time career. Married, with three wonderful children, she took the search very seriously.
She came across TERRA when an online ad for a position caught her eye.
Jodi was very hesitant at first about going to TERRA. She had interviewed at another staffing agency and wasn’t impressed. She actually felt offended by the lack of care to help her get the job. She felt like an afterthought to them.
But Jodi decided to give TERRA a shot. She went to TERRA’s Beaverton office and interviewed with Recruiter, Mandy Mueller.
Not only did Jodi think everyone at the Beaverton office was very professional, she felt like her recruiter really showed an interest in seeing her succeed. Mandy asked her several thoughtful questions about her work history and what she was looking for. Mandy’s taking the time to really understand her background in order to help her find the right fit instilled confidence in Jodi.
She knew she would be well taken care of.
Mandy could tell that Jodi would be an asset in any customer-facing role, immediately upon meeting her. Not only that, Jodi’s millwright experience was a valuable skill set. This unique combination of customer service experience and mechanical aptitude, Mandy knew, was something that clients were always on the lookout for, but had difficulty finding.
And as it happened, Mandy had a client looking for such a skill set. She arranged for Jodi to meet with them
Jodi was very excited about the position. She had actually gone through a journeyman/millwright program. And though she had decided to leave her millwright position, she loved the troubleshooting aspect of the job.
After interviewing Jodi, the client thought she was a perfect fit for the Technical Service Representative role!
Mandy had been able to help translate Jodi’s past into a future opportunity!
Mandy had this to say, “The client was impressed by Jodi’s combination of technical skills and customer service experience. And she was able to successfully convey her skills and experience and how they translated to this role.”
Jodi had nothing but kind words for Mandy, “I want to give a big thank you to Mandy Mueller. She is an amazing person, let alone an amazing recruiter! She showed interest in me and really went above and beyond to help me succeed in my new position!”
Her thanks continued, “I would highly recommend TERRA Staffing Group to anyone looking for success. The staff has been open and friendly and helped to get me to where I am today! Thanks, TERRA! And thanks again, Mandy Mueller!”
