Contemporary Staffing Solutions celebrates
Once a month we will feature a “first job” from one of our employees, clients, or contractors, posing questions often asked in job interviews. They will share many things like what they learned from their first job, how they feel it’s applicable to their job today, and something they learned from their first job they wish they knew then.
Amanda H., a CSS Client Relations Supervisor, shares her first job:
Where was your first job & what was your title there?
“Landscaper for Messiah College”
What were your daily responsibilities?
“Upkeep of campus grounds.”
What was a “stand out” moment that was fun/interesting/memorable”?
“When you turn 16, you were allowed to use equipment. It was a proud moment when I went from picking the weeks in the gardens to actually mowing grass. The days flew by so much faster and I was motivated to take on new responsibilities. The more I learned, the more variety I had in my daily tasks, which really helped each week fly by.”
What did you learn from this job that you apply to your current job?
“Team work was important. If you weren’t doing your share of work, or if a team member wasn’t contributing, the work took longer. Working longer hours outside in the heat is never a good thing, so team work was vital to completing daily tasks in a timely fashion.”
What do you know now, that you wish you knew then?
“The value of a dollar. If only I had saved some of the money that I made :)!”
What is your current job/title?
Amanda is currently a Client Relations Supervisor with Contemporary Staffing Solutions in our New Castle, DE office.
