It is no secret that this recession has resulted in many layoffs across all industries, and J. Kent Candidates that we have placed over the years are not immune. But… they keep coming back to us, and we have great success placing them again with other J. Kent Clients. Take, for example, Heather Davis – a well-educated, articulate, highly skilled administrative assistant, who we have placed 3 times in the past 4 years.
2006: Placed as a Project Assistant with an award-winning landscape architecture firm. Laid off in 2008.
2008: Placed as an Administrative Assistant with a planning & design firm. Laid off in 2009.
2010: Placed (temp-to-hire) as an Investor Relations Coordinator with an oil & gas firm. Heather was hired on as a permanent employee several months later, and we hope this marks the beginning of a long-lasting career!
