Sometimes job seekers seek us, and sometimes we seek them.
When Amanda Roberts, Tukwila Recruiter, found herself looking to fill a Customer Accounts Manager role with a leading company in the laundry industry, her research led her to Rachel Cupples.
Rachel had more than 10 years of experience in Inside Sales Management and Customer Service, and had five years of Human Resources experience under her belt as well.
And while her work history was impressive, what really made an impression Amanda was that nine months of Rachel’s experience was in the laundry industry. Amanda knew that Rachel’s background made her a great fit for the role.
When she reached out to Rachel, however, Rachel was apprehensive. “At first, I said no, like are you kidding me?” She never pictured herself working in the laundry industry long-term.
But she let Amanda tell her more about the job and the company – and she’s very glad she did!
“It turned out to be an incredible opportunity!” Rachel exclaimed. “I wasn’t looking to work in this industry, but the company was one of the places I most wanted to work for in the state of Washington.”
Amanda’s instincts were spot on about Rachel being right for the job because the client brought her on as a full-time, regular employee! And we are happy to share that she has been promoted to Employment Branding Recruitment Manager.
Rachel had nothing but praise for her new employer. “They make a difference! I could talk for hours about all they do to aid children and adults with disabilities. They’re a phenomenal social enterprise!”
When asked if she’d ever recommend anyone to TERRA, Rachel said, “I absolutely would. TERRA is one of the best!”
Rachel went on to say, “I’d like to thank Amanda for her professionalism and honesty. I’m not sure how it sounds, but I feel like I made a friend.”
We are so glad that Rachel gave Amanda the chance to tell her more about the role because it opened the door for her to work for a great company that she really believes in.
