Warm fall days take us back to thoughts of the summer and with those come a very delayed announcement…
Congratulations to Shannon McCleary, of Quincy, who was named as our Employee of the Month for July! Shannon is not only a fantastic SSS success story, she also came to us via a referral from her dad who we met at a networking event. The story starts way back in April when we met Derek McCleary at a business expo held at Granite Links. In conversation, Derek mentioned his daughter was looking for work so we encouraged him to have her call us. Almost immediately we received her resume and she was in our office for an interview within the week.
Shannon received her Bachelor’s degree in 2017 and after working her first job and getting laid off, she was looking to explore what’s out there as she waitressed on the side. We were so impressed with Shannon! She was friendly, well spoken, professional and extremely responsive. When our client in Randolph, the May Institute, reached out looking for someone to help in their HR office, she was the first person we thought of. She interviewed and was offered the job on the spot and started a little over a week after we first met her. Feedback from her supervisors was fantastic right off the bat and just a short two and a half months later, Shannon was offered and accepted a permanent offer with them!
Shannon’s story highlights the power of referrals. Good people know good people and if we hadn’t met her dad, we never would have been able to place her with such a fantastic organization where she can begin her career! Luckily Shannon had worked enough hours before converting that her dad was able to receive a $250 referral bonus check.
Thank you, Shannon, for being such a great candidate and thank you, Derek, for sending her to us!
If that’s not a SSS success story, we don’t know what is!
