Office Assistant, Denver, Colorado

Natural Gas Client Switches from Temp-to-Hire to Direct Hire for New Office Assistant


Office Assistant

Since 2014, our Denver, Colorado-based client has been helping small and medium-sized companies with natural gas and energy management solutions. They now serve thousands of clients in 11 states and Canada.

At the end of 2022, this new J. Kent Client company contacted us with a couple of different hiring needs. This particular position was a temp-to-hire Office Assistant position that reported to the CFO and would support their small yet growing downtown Denver office.

Temp-to-Hire vs. Direct Hire

Our client was originally interested in hiring an Office Assistant using the Temp-to-Hire approach. After meeting with Aisha, they made the decision to switch their job offer to Direct Hire. In a tight candidate market, these strategic hiring decisions can help win your top candidate’s acceptance.

Meet Aisha – Office Assistant

Aisha was born and raised in Denver, Colorado. She is the proud daughter of Lebanese/Swiss and Moroccan immigrants who met decades ago in downtown Denver.

Aisha started working in retail while attending Smoky Hill High School in Aurora, and eventually became a Department Manager where she honed her customer service and management skills. Following 3 years in retail, she continued developing her career in the hotel, customer service, and logistics industries.

In December 2022, Aisha resigned from her role as a contracted Delivery Associate at Amazon. Her plan was to seek an administrative role after the New Year with a company that offered a promising career path. During her interview process with our client, she was excited to learn of the potential opportunity for growth in accounting and finance.

Aisha gladly accepted her job offer, started her new Office Assistant position on February 1, and ever since then has been enjoying learning the ins and outs of the natural gas industry.

Outside of work, Aisha loves spending time with family and friends, following the fashion industry, snowboarding, and traveling.

Aisha – congratulations on your new job; we look forward to hearing about your exciting career journey!
