Todd Carmody is a worker in every sense of the word. After nine years in the construction industry, he’s done almost every job you can think of in the field. He even owned his own shop for eight years, where he did motorcycle repairs. Todd doesn’t just get his hands dirty, but he’s also knowledgeable about his craft – a great mix.
Originally from Colorado, Todd moved to Arizona with an eagerness to work right away, but first he needed options.
So he did what most people do in that situation – he searched for jobs on the internet.
A quick search for welding jobs in the Phoenix area struck gold. He came across a welding opening through TERRA and applied.
Mary Taporco, Recruiting Coordinator in TERRA’s Mesa office, called Todd and brought him in for an interview. She came away a great first impression. She shared, “He’s personable and professional, but it’s his knowledge and skills that set him apart.”
Mary focused on finding Todd a job that matched his desires for location, pay, and job type. She not only helped find Todd a perfect placement for him, but she found one with an added bonus – it’s indoors.
When asked about the importance of working indoors, Todd laughed and said, “I love it! I’ve been working outside my whole life with construction jobs, so working indoors is a huge plus.”
After just one day on the job, the company reached out to Mary to ask if TERRA could keep sending Todd. He had made yet another strong first impression!
It’s been two months and Todd is not only still there, he was brought on as a full-time, regular employee a few weeks ago!
He loves his job and has made it clear that he has no interest in hearing about other jobs. He’s found his home.
Todd said he would gladly recommend TERRA to any friend or family member looking for work in the Phoenix area, and he had only the best reviews for Mary’s efforts.
“Mary has always been there for everything,” Todd said.
