One of my all-time favorite candidates was Beth W., who I had the pleasure of working with in the summer of 2014 for a position in Cleveland, OH. Our client was looking for a Human Resources contractor for a short leave of absence. Beth had extensive years of hospital based HR and was also an active Registered Nurse which I figured was a shoe in for this position. Unfortunately she was not the first choice and you could tell she didn’t feel the interview went well. Over the course of a couple of weeks, the first candidate backed out due to the short term contract assignment and Beth was requested to fill the role after our account manager (Laura) pushed for an offer.
The success comes from Beth’s desire to take a risk on this position and when the person she was covering for decided not to return; Beth went from a temp to a direct employee. Beth is still working there and has been an active part of giving us over 40 new positions to work on in 2015. She is a strategic partner in helping us grow that location. Our candidates, account managers, and recruiters are a full cycle success story to continue to change lives.
