In August of 2020, Kalah graduated from Sam Houston State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology. She was looking to start a career where she could combine her 4+ years of customer service experience with her love of helping people.
In December 2020, Kalah was contacted by Bridge Recruiter, Amanda Hanson, regarding an opportunity in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
“Moving through the hiring process for any prospective job can be overwhelming and stressful…Amanda was very patient and willing to work around my schedule. She made sure I was prepared [for all my] interviews [which led me] to get an amazing job offer.”
After only two weeks of working with Amanda, Kalah had accepted a new position.
“Bridge Personnel is such a great company to work with. Amanda Hanson is amazing and made the process of transitioning to my new job so smooth and easy. She made sure I was prepared for all my interviews and gave me an abundant amount of tips and tricks to make sure I nailed the hiring process every step of the way.”
In February 2020, Amanda was asked to make a big move. She was relocating from Florida to one of her employer’s locations in Illinois. Things were going great until she was furloughed (and subsequentially laid off) due to COVID-19.
Amanda now found herself living in a new city with limited professional resources. In September, Amanda was contacted by Client Manager, Amanda Hanson, regarding an opportunity that meshed her previous experience in the hospitality industry with her passion for customer service.
“My experience with Bridge has been amazing. Amanda was very helpful and supportive throughout the entire process.”
Within less than two weeks, after speaking with Bridge, Amanda was starting her new position. In December of 2020, Amanda was offered full-time permanent employment.
“ I was very fortunate to come across this opportunity while in the middle of a pandemic. Extremely thankful for Bridge!”
Lisette had relocated and started a new position prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, but once COVID started in full force, she saw her hours dwindling and decided to start looking for work with more stability and growth – ideally in the same industry.
Bridge Client Manager, Amanda, reached out at the end of July 2020 and a week later, Lisette was offered a position and she accepted!
“I had no clue how much success and growth that would come out of [this experience]! I am now fortunate to be employed at a wonderfully diverse and expanding company that ends each of my days with a large sense of accomplishment!”
After working as a Bridge employee, Lisette was offered a full-time permanent position after 3 months of employment!
“[I] just want to thank the staff at Bridge.”
In the middle of 2019, Wilmarie found herself in the middle of a very lackluster job search. She had recently left an organization that she had outgrown. In July 2019, Wilmarie was contacted by Bridge Senior Client Manager, Mary. Mary’s communication and support helped Wilmarie obtain an employment offer with a high-profile auto finance company.
“Mary was supportive, easy to work with. She communicates with you throughout your job search and after you are working with Bridge. She always replied and was supportive when I needed anything.”
This October, Wilmarie was offered a permanent position of Credit Analyst from her contingent placement.
“I have to thank Mary! She has been always there since Day One. Trust [Bridge] and they will take you where you need to be.”
Heather graduated with her Bachelor’s in Finance in December 2011 and experienced initial success in her first two jobs out of college. Then, due to family reasons, she moved home to Illinois. Heather’s top priority became her family, but she didn’t let these changes affect her professional aspirations.
In late July, Heather was ready to rejoin the workforce and began her job search. In August, she was able to connect with Bridge Client Manager, Scott Browning.
“I was really nervous about getting back out in the workforce, but Scott made the process of finding and starting a new job easy”.
While working with Scott, she was able to tighten up her resume and connect to employment opportunities that best matched her previous experiences. Only two weeks after working with Scott, Heather received a job offer as a Customer Service Representative with a mortgage servicing company.
“All the staff at Bridge have made my employment success a priority to them. They have helped and guided me every step of the way.”
Finding a dream job when the employment market is up can be challenging, so Kathryn knew when she found herself looking for a job in the spring of 2020, her goal would become that much harder.
Kathryn had been looking for an opportunity where she could apply her previous work experience as well as grow professionally and learn new skills. It was early 2020, and the COVID-19 pandemic had caused the hiring world to come to a grinding halt. Kathryn thought that by working with several agencies, she could help her odds, but, instead, she was finding 0 luck and a lot of frustration –until she connected with Bridge Client Manager, Amanda Hanson.
“Before I connected [with Amanda], there were [staffing agencies] that I would get in touch with, then fast forward, and someone else would be taking over for them and we had to start all over again, so [working with Bridge] was refreshing. [She] changed my mind on recruiters.”
Weeks went by without hearing a peep from target employers, and Kathryn needed to make the tough decision to find work because of the pandemic. She found a temporary position that wasn’t exactly what she was looking for, but it got her back to work, and she was very excited about that!
Unlike the other staffing agencies Kathryn was working with, Amanda stayed in contact with Kathryn, and would proactively reach out to her about opportunities that matched her ultimate career goals to see if she was interested in them, and sure enough, in September 2020 the opportunity Kathryn was looking for presented itself, and she accepted this offer!
“I’ve told friends to reach out to [Bridge]; they will help you find something!”
