Eliseo “Cheo” Herrera
Cheo moved to Illinois with his significant other in May 2021. Shortly after, he began his job search looking for a company where he could find a “home”. In August, Cheo connected with Client Manager, Amanda Hanson. Upon first connecting, there wasn’t an opportunity that was the right fit, but she didn’t give up and continued her search for him.
“In working with her to be recruited, she was very responsive and immensely helpful. She was very professional and built a wonderful rapport with me.”
After only a few days since they first connected, Amanda was able to find a remote opportunity that matched what Cheo was looking for. She was able to get him scheduled for an interview shortly after. Cheo accepted the company’s offer and started in his new position in September 2021.
“Amanda saw me as a good fit for the position and she was definitely right… I would recommend working with Bridge and Amanda in particular.”

After working in the educational field for almost a decade, it was time to make a change. She wanted to make a move into a corporate environment but wasn’t sure how to get started.
“Megan helped me think outside of the box when it came to my skills and experiences. She was able to see my talents and skills beyond the job titles I carried and she helped me position them so that not only were they relevant, but they also made me stand out against other candidates. I felt empowered and confident thanks to her guidance and advice.”
In August of 2020, Andria connected with Bridge Senior Talent Acquisition Specialist, Megan Johnson. With Megan’s help, Andria was able to reformat her resume and highlight her transferable skills to successfully move into a corporate operations role.
In exactly one week, Andria had secured a job as a Compliance Specialist –earning even more than she thought someone new to the industry could make.
I would highly recommend Megan as a competent guide in the complex and stressful journey of job searching. I really appreciate her support in helping me take my first step into a new industry. Thanks to her, I secured a pay rate that is more than what I would have thought to ask for as a newbie in the field. I really appreciate her cooperation and support.

The pandemic left many professionals suddenly looking for a job. Abigail was no exception. Like many others, she began her job search in early 2020. Abigail connected with Bridge Client Manager, Amanda Hanson, in March 2020. Despite her reservations about working with staffing agencies, she took a chance on Bridge.
“I was apprehensive with the idea of working with an agency… I had heard some unappealing stories of people’s experiences with other agencies. Now, I rave to my friends about Bridge all the time.”
Immediately after connecting, Amanda was on the (job) hunt. Amanda stayed in contact with Abigail and would regularly discuss employment opportunities with her that would be available once businesses began hiring again. In August 2020, Amanda found Abigail a match; she accepted and started her new position. After 5 months, Abigail was hired permanently!
“I was hesitant about working with agencies until I met Amanda. If you’re a job seeker who is at all worried about working with a staffing agency, go with Bridge. I can’t say enough about the positive experience I had.”

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!”
