In a time when unemployment reaches record lows, open positions and available candidates come and go on the drop of a dime. Hannah Spinks can attest to this firsthand—the administrative assistant opportunity she went after was already filled before she could submit her resume. However, the position was listed through Leddy Group, and Hannah decided to take a chance and use their services to see what they could do for her. Her strong skill set combined with her willingness to trust Leddy Group’s process led to her own great career, and in record time!
When Hannah decided to continue with Leddy Group’s interview process after learning the administrative assistant position was off the table, she had done so despite never having used a staffing agency before. She didn’t quite know what to expect, but, as Hannah says, “You can never have too much help when job hunting.”
She initially met with Staffing Coordinator Cassandra Carroll, who had a lengthy discussion with Hannah about what she was looking for in her next position. During the conversation, Cassandra learned that Hannah was searching for not just a job, but a career; that she enjoyed wearing different hats; and most importantly, that she thrived on interacting with people.
After her interview, the Leddy Group team conferred and felt Hannah might be better suited to customer service opportunities. “Hannah had experience in and really enjoyed customer service, and we found our interactions with her were so positive and genuinely personable that we knew we had to share her information with our CSR-based clients,” said Dawn Mackay, Leddy Group’s staffing manager.
One client, in particular, jumped out to Leddy Group’s team. “We immediately thought of a client whose culture and CSR roles were a perfect mix of what Hannah was looking for,” Dawn added. “We also knew that Hannah’s friendly, professional demeanor would mesh well with our client’s team!”
Leddy Group marketed Hannah’s skills to the client, who brought her in for an interview. She was immediately hired on in a temporary-to-permanent position, and it didn’t take long after that for them to bring Hannah on as a permanent employee. “So far, I really enjoy my new position!” commented Hannah. “Leddy Group matched me up with a position that fits me perfectly. My coworkers have been helping me get fully adjusted, and they’ve made it such a great place to work.”
Hannah is very appreciative of Leddy Group’s services. She said, “I would definitely recommend Leddy Group to anyone. They really helped reduce stress when job hunting, and both Cassandra and Dawn kept me updated and made sure I was well taken care of throughout the entire process.”
Congratulations, Hannah! We look forward to hearing about your many successes in the future!
