SIA Features Beacon Hill Candidate in The Talent’s Voice Column
June 2nd, 2023
Placing an average of 25,000-30,000 candidates in roles each year, it’s no secret that Beacon Hill Staffing Group loves to find people for jobs, and jobs for people! Recently, one job seeker that Beacon Hill placed shared their experience in landing a role in an article featured by the Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA).
In this article, Austin Witt explains how he went from being a post-grad adrift in the job seeking ocean, to reeling himself in and finding success as a temp, all thanks to one connection that he had made.
Here’s an excerpt from the article:
A connection I’d made while networking led me to apply for a job through Beacon Hill Staffing Group. I knew it was a shot in the dark — the company was recruiting for an HR intern — but I knew it wouldn’t hurt to try. And, to my surprise, the recruiter responded within minutes. She was the sweetest, most inspirational person and someone that became my friend over the next few months. She was impressed with my résumé — or perhaps my ambition to find her among a string of connections — and set up an interview for the following workday. An actual interview. I was beyond happy. Someone was going to take a chance on me.
The interview was unlike anything I had done before. The recruiter could tell I was nervous, but she made the space comfortable and inviting. We talked and talked, like two friends discussing dinner plans, about our experiences, how fabulous this opportunity was for an entry-level job seeker and how she would present my résumé that same afternoon. It wasn’t even three hours later when I received a call back: The company wanted to schedule an interview.
Within a week, I was starting at the company. It was, however, not like any place I had worked before: The staff was incredible, the onboarding was immersive and it had a feeling of community.
Instantly, I knew that I loved working for this company, but more, I appreciated the phone calls, emails and check-ins from my recruiter at Beacon Hill. She was encouraging and open, always responding within minutes, even on the weekend. At that moment, I understood the importance of leaping at an opportunity, trusting that it would all work out in the end, and it did.
Erin Koolen, Senior Account Executive of BH Associates, who helped place Austin in his role couldn’t say enough about working with Austin, stating that, “Austin is every recruiter’s dream!”
“Introduced to Beacon Hill through a mutual connection, Austin was able to articulate his experience and passion for entering the HR world after recently graduating,” Erin continues. “With Austin’s approachable, but professional personality, coupled with his interview preparedness, we were able to get him an immediate interview with one of our favorite clients. They were instantly impressed with him as well and the job was his. Best of all, now that Austin has been hired permanently by that company, we get to continue to grow our professional partnership. Austin is simply the best!”
