I had just finished my internship and in the process of looking for employment. Most companies I applied with advised that I did not have substantial experience hence they wouldn't take me on. However, upon applying with Staffinders, I had a quick response from the senior recruiter - Michelle who invited me for an interview. She was so friendly and really boosted my morale. I was so impressed that she had so much confidence in me and she was willing to send me out working as soon as possible.
3 weeks later, I got a phone call from Michelle with my first post. I was very pleased and excited at the opportunity. After that, Michelle got me another 6 months post. I am very happy with all the posts and the work I have been doing so far. More so, that Staffinders always get in touch to find out how their staff are coping.
The confidence they had me and the chance they gave me in getting me good posts has been exceptional, especially after going through a hard time to find stable employment. Moreover, Staffinders have been very helpful in getting me through an amazing career ladder where I am now working within fields and subjects in line with my qualifications.
Thank you Staffinders, Thank you Michelle for taking a chance on me.
