New to town, Sara was seeking long-term employment but wasn’t sure of what field she wanted to pursue, and so came to J. Kent Staffing for help in the process. After meeting with a J. Kent Recruiter and having Sara complete MS Office testing to complete the vetting process, our seasoned recruiter saw great potential in her. But with her multi-faceted resume that featured jobs in varying areas due to her diverse interests (she has a BS in Statistics with a minor in Fashion Merchandising!), our recruiter encouraged her to remain open to temporary jobs so that she could explore different companies and roles before making a full commitment.
Lo and behold, we were able to secure her a temporary job with an international nonprofit client of ours who thought she was such a great fit – and the feeling was mutual – that they hired her after just two and a half months.
J. Kent’s client, headquartered in Aurora, Colorado, supports a global membership of 6,500 physicians and researchers from over 100 countries who are dedicated to the study and eradication of lung cancer and other thoracic malignancies. They were excited by how well Sara fit into their new ever-changing and developing role, how willing she was to remain flexible and to support a variety of people, and how committed she was to their organization, even while she was a temporary employee. Our client was especially impressed by her work ethic, as demonstrated this past Spring during the first of Denver’s two “Bomb Cyclones” when our temp was one of three people who showed up for work – the CEO, the CFO, and Sara!
