ATLANTA, Nov. 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- With the holidays approaching, there is no better time to reflect on the value of having stable and meaningful employment. In a series called #ThankfulForRandstad, individuals who have had life-changing experiences using the staffing agency are sharing their stories to extend appreciation to Randstad US. Videos capturing these stories can be found on Randstad US' social channels. These anecdotes encourage others who may be struggling with finding a job or unhappy with their current positions to turn to Randstad US for specialized attention and support in their search.
For some, Randstad US has proved helpful when a change in career is necessary. Placed candidate Kelsey McGinn feared that her specialized skillset after studying art history and French limited her to a career in foreign language education. After discovering she was unhappy in teaching, McGinn had two successful Manufacturing & Logistics placements with Randstad US that turned into a permanent role.
"I just generally like what I do," said McGinn. "I'm thankful for Randstad for redefining my career path for the better."
For others, Randstad US has been a saving grace after unexpected layoffs. Clark Walters experienced such a setback and turned to Randstad US after being out of work for six months. Randstad US helped Walters to turn his situation around through a series of temporary assignments and eventually a full-time job. Walters is also earning a higher salary in his new position.
"I lost my job as part of a reduction in force in late 2011," said Walters. "Having the full-time position that I have now through Randstad has given me more stability and a new freedom…it's just given me a better quality of life."
From the staffing agency's point of view, the campaign has reinforced Randstad US employees' desires to provide the best for candidates in search of work.
"At Randstad we are thankful that we can engage with people like Kelsey, Majera, Clark, Sandra and Cecilia who want to find jobs and careers that are a great fit for their lives," said Michelle Prince, senior vice president of talent management for Randstad US. "We strive to connect people with great opportunities that help them gain experience, grow personally and professionally, provide the right flexibility and help them develop their careers. We are grateful that we get to work with such smart and ambitious people every day."
