eoe april 202x300 - Announcing the Employee of the Month for April 2018

We usually use this space to say a few words about our Employee of the Month, but Corey’s answers to our Spotlight Questionnaire were so well worded, we decided to get right to it.

Philly Temps (PT): How long have you lived in the Philadelphia, PA area?

Corey B (CB): Originally from North Carolina, work and a relationship brought me to Philadelphia in the summer of 2015.

PT: What was your work experience prior to working with Philly Temps?

CB: My career has mostly been centered in nonprofit work before coming to Philly Temps.  I performed 2 years of service in AmeriCorps NCCC, worked for a short time with Planned Parenthood, and most recently spent two and a half years working in the administrative office of a West Philly charter school network.

PT: How did you hear about Philly Temps?

CB: I have a number of friends who found success working with temp. and staffing agencies, so when I was laid off from my last job, it seemed like a great way to make new connections and find new opportunities.  Philly Temps was the most professional and most responsive agency I found in the city.

PT: Please share your most memorable experience working for Philly Temps.

CB: I remember meeting Katie Ely for an interview on a Monday morning, and by Wednesday I was in front of an employer (for whom I’m still working)!  She and Christine were very supportive through the process, contacting me weekly and allowing me a confidential platform to be open about any concerns, questions, or goals I had.

PT: What are your long-term career goals?

CB: In the future, I hope to return to the non-profit sector with the skills and experience to serve as an organization’s Executive Director.

PT: What are your hobbies and interests outside of work?

CB: After a long day’s work, you will usually see me knitting, weaving, or whatever other craft du jour has caught my fancy.  You can also find me bopping around Union Transfer or with my nose buried in Roxanne Gay’s latest modern classic.

PT: What advice can you give to prospective candidates that want to work with Philly Temps?

CB: Philly Temps is not giving you a job, but rather an opportunity.  They can make such valuable connections, but it is ultimately up to you to craft your career.  Be honest about what you need, be professional and courteous at all times, and never let a dry spell or a rough patch hamper your ambition.  You’re a boss—so be a boss.

Thank you so much for the recognition.  I appreciate it as I appreciate all the work Philly Temps has done for me these past few months.  Please find a photo attached, and my questionnaire below.
