Madeline graduated college with a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Roosevelt University in May 2020. She had been looking for the right opportunity to get out of retail and start her career.
“I did not know where to start or what to look for since I only had experience in one field, but that is when Amanda reached out with a great opportunity.”
Amanda interviewed Madeline and, within days, Madeline received an interview request for a Drivers’ Service Agent position with a fleet management company.
“Amanda helped me with my resume and gave me tips for how I can succeed in the interview. She let me know what to expect… she made sure I was prepared and would check in with me to see how I was feeling about the job.”
After interviewing, Madeline received an offer and ultimately accepted the offer!
“Bridge [Personnel Services] wants everyone to succeed and they will work with you to do so–just like they did with me.”
At the beginning of 2019, MaryRose found herself in the middle of a very stressful job search. She had wanted to ring in the New Year with a new job but wasn’t having much luck. In February 2019, MaryRose was contacted by Bridge Senior Client Manager, Mary. Mary’s supportive and calming personality helped MaryRose feel less stressed about her search.
“I was very stressed about looking for work. Mary was supportive, easy to work with, and efficient in finding me a job.”
With Mary’s help, MaryRose was offered a position as a Rep I Customer Service Representative for a Fortune 7 Pharmaceutical Company. “Mary is a great communicator. There was not a single time where I felt I was left in the dark.”
This June, MaryRose was brought on permanently to the team and was offered the position of Customer Service Representative.
“Mary and Bridge are amazing to work with…Mary is a thoughtful and supportive recruiter. [The Bridge team] truly cares about you and your career. In my book, Bridge gets a 5/5!”
When Tom decided to make a career change in 2016, it was into completely uncharted territory.
Tom was fortunate enough to connect with Bridge Talent Acquisition Manager, Megan Johnson, early on in his job search. “Almost immediately after I applied to the [Bridge job post] I was contacted by Megan. From the moment I spoke with her, I knew that Bridge Personnel Services Corp was the recruiting firm for me.”
Megan spent the time to get to know Tom’s career goals and professional experience to see if they were a match. “Throughout the interview process, Megan was there for me. After each interview with [my now employer], Megan would touch base to see how things were going and provide pointers for the next steps.”
In June 2016, Tom was offered the position of Regional Sales Manager. “To this day, I have a great professional relationship with Megan…I know she will be there for me and support my professional goals however she can.”
If anyone is looking for a new job opportunity, I, without hesitation, recommend Bridge!
Taylor has never been one to shy away from a challenge! Taylor had been looking for a job in the Mortgage Industry for 3 months before her search led her to Bridge.
Taylor was connected with Talent Acquisition Manager, Megan Johnson. “During the months [I worked] with Megan, she was amazing throughout the whole process! She always prepped me before interviews and told me what to expect!”
Upon interviewing, Taylor was not offered the job, but that didn’t deter her nor Megan. When other positions became available, Megan reached out to Taylor immediately. “What amazed me the most is that, between the first interview and until I landed the job, [Megan] never forgot about me or what I wanted.”
This time around, Taylor was offered a position as Post Closing Assistant with her target company. She has taken on more responsibility and is now an Application Coordinator.
“[Megan] not only found me a job, but a career….I have nothing but good things to say about Bridge! They are always willing to help and make sure you know what to expect out of the job and interview process.” – Taylor C.
As a recent college grad, Michael was not going to leave any stone unturned searching for his first corporate job. “I had heard about LinkedIn but was not 100% sold on it being worth the time and effort (this was all very new to me), but I made my profile and started connecting.”
During his job search, Michael connected with Talent Acquisition Manager, Megan Johnson, and she proved to be a great resource for him. “[Megan] helped me find my current [position]. She supplied information, helped prep me, and eventually got me that first interview and, well, the rest is history!”
“I especially loved how she followed up with me after I got the job and checked in on me. She really opened my eyes to the value of connecting and maximizing your network.”
With Megan’s guidance, Michael was able to find his first job out of college within less than a month after connecting with Bridge. On top of that, he learned networking skills he will undoubtedly take with him throughout his career.
When Katie connected with Bridge, she was looking to transition out of her current job into a new role due to her previous company closing; she had worked with a staffing agency previously but she was a little apprehensive to work with one again because of her previous experiences.
“My experience working with [Bridge] was very pleasant and easy…. I was very skeptical [to work] with an agency because in the past I worked with one that never got back to me.”
Katie interviewed with Bridge Personnel in February 2018. After her first client match did not pan out as expected, Katie began to feel discouraged, but her Client Manager, Amanda Hanson, reminded her Bridge’s goal is to find her a career — not a job.
A short three days later, Amanda reached out to Katie with another opportunity that ended up being the one! In April 2018, Katie started her new position, and she will be celebrating her two-year anniversary in a few months.
Katie’s eagerness and enthusiasm to learn has taken her far over the past two years. In her current position, Katie has gained new responsibilities and is seen as a valuable resource and mentor by the newer team members.
Angel was hired through Bridge Personnel in October 2017 as a Collections Specialist. This was newly developed position and she was hired to be the first person in the department! Due to her hard work and dedication, she was hired as a full-time permanent in employee in January 2018 and promoted to a Hotel Relations Coordinator in April 2018.
Before connecting with Bridge, Angel had never worked with a staffing agency. When Bridge Client Manager, Amanda Hanson reached out to her, she was a bit apprehensive due to the “horror stories” she had heard about working with staffing agencies.
“My initial interview with Amanda was so professional and I felt welcomed. Amanda was able to review my resume and offer very helpful advice for adjustments prior to submitting to my future employers. Once an interview was scheduled, Amanda coached me through it. I got the job and Amanda continued to stay in contact with me – making sure I felt welcome – and [she] was there if I ever had questions. I thank Amanda so much for helping me feel confident in the journey I [took].
I still refer to Bridge when I have friends or colleagues looking for new work.” — Angel Quirin
