Kelly walked into our recruiting office in 2018 with no email address, phone number, or resume. We worked with him over the next year or so, to try different assignments, and while he did really well at those jobs, they were not long-term fits. After a few months of not hearing from him, his recruiter ran into him at the train station, and they reconnected. In September 2020, we secured a placement for Kelly at one of our biggest clients where Kelly could commute easily – unfortunately they soon moved their warehouse to a different part of town that was impossible to access by transit. But, through Kelly’s dedication, good nature, and excellent work ethic, he was able to connect with a team member he could car-pool with. It wasn’t long afterwards, when Kelly was able to secure a vehicle of his own, and was offered a permanent position at the client company. We are so proud of everything Kelly accomplished and how far he has come from his humble beginnings with us, to his established place with a growing company who appreciates him for his contributions and skills. We know you have already put that $1000 award to very good use!
