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.
