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!”
