Can you tell us about your experience with Manpower?
I was enrolled in school and looking for employment when I learned about Manpower. I didn’t quite know what to expect when I first made an account on the Manpower website, but the very next day I received a phone call and over the next 15 minutes or so we went through my employment history, my interests, my skills, and more to develop a more complete profile.
Tell us a little about how you came to find your job?
After completing my profile I was asked to check back weekly to see if any jobs came available that matched my skills, and in the meantime, I was able to browse the list of available positions myself. It was there that I spotted the IT position I am in now.
At first [company] was seeking a candidate available to work 3 full days a week, but as I was a student I only had afternoons available.
So how was Manpower able to help?
Manpower was fantastic. They negotiated for me and [Company] agreed to have me come in every weekday afternoon instead. After a pretty cool video interview process I was offered the position and accepted.
I really feel like the Manpower team helped me each step of the way and made the most of my potential. I worked for 12 short weeks as a temp for [company] through Manpower, and then [company] decided to hire me on full time.
Now I am looking forward to continue to develop my career there.
