“Making a big life change is pretty scary. But know what’s even scarier? Regret.” – Zig Ziglar
I have had the fantastic opportunity to work for NewHire formerly known as New Office Temps for over 10 years. In this time I have not only grown immeasurably professionally but personally as well. In my role as Staffing Coordinator, I have been introduced to an enormous variety of industries and business leaders from across the country, and I have learned firsthand what it takes to operate a successful small to mid-size business, from a recruitment perspective. From this standpoint, I have enormous gratitude that I have the great fortune of learning from the expertise of the President of NewHire, Chuck Smith and the Vice President, Leora Baumgarten, along with my wonderful colleagues turned friends.
The foundation of this organization combined with the numerous lessons I have learned as a Staffing Coordinator has contributed to me feeling ready to pursue a different passion, that of a Clinical Mental Health Counselor as my new career. Among many things, working as a Staffing Coordinator as taught me the critical importance of listening, taking a risk, going with your gut, and being prepared for the unexpected. With that in mind, I am aware that making any change can be scary but not doing so due to fear of it not working out is much worse. Many companies that I have worked with have been afraid to take a chance on candidates for a variety of reasons, and I am grateful that was not the case for me. NewHire has invested in me all of these years and in turn, I have invested in NewHire and in myself. I know that it will continue to be revealed to me the many ways that I have been influenced by the many impactful experiences had as a result.
I thank-you all for working with me all of these years. We are very excited to reintroduce you to Stephanie Lewandowski as a Lead Staffing Coordinator in the coming days by phone or by email. Best wishes.
