Since moving to Denver from Chicago last Fall, Shelley is working on her second J. Kent Staffing temporary assignment as she continues her full-time job search.
After completing a six-week Accounting Assistant assignment, Shelley stepped in at the start of the new year as a Receptionist at a bankruptcy law firm. They were conducting their own search for a new Receptionist but needed a temporary employee to provide front-office support until someone was hired and able to start. This was a great fit for both Shelley and our client as Shelley had previous experience working in a Chicago law firm.
Our client soon made a new hire, but that individual did not work out within the first few days. Fortunately, Shelley was able to return to the assignment without missing a beat!
The duration of temporary needs is often unknown at the beginning. What starts as two weeks can easily turn into four weeks, then six weeks, and beyond. Temporary staffing offers the flexibility that companies need in those uncertain and unpredictable situations.
Outside of work, Shelley loves to visit and explore new places. She is pictured here on a hike in the Grand Canyon.
