After many failed attempts I remember being unemployed for an entire year. Finally a friend suggested I meet with a recruiter, which was Key Bentley. When we met, her personality was very positive and reassuring. It felt nice to have a stranger care about my well-being and employment status.
Key gave me pointers on resume. Also before any interviews she provided motivational career conversations. I interviewed a few times with different employers. From my experience most recruiters file the resume and forget about the candidate.
The prevalent aspect of meeting Key, she did not give up on me. Finally I landed a at position AIM Wholesale RV & Distribution Parts, as an Office Assistant. As a quick study, I wore many hats at AIM, which excel my career level. From Will Call, Public Relations Assistant and Web Administrator.
This success was just the beginning for my career path. After 3 achievable years employed at AIM, I landed a position at APL Logistics Americas Ltd. Beforehand; I did not consider working in logistics would offer career advancement opportunities. APL hired me as an Import Operations Representative. Learning the position quickly, I fell in love with the, behind the scenes, leadership power it offered.
APL Logistics Americas Ltd. is Global Supply Chain import and export organization. Owned by Kintetsu World Express, Inc., we assure merchant cargo is released and shipped to its correct destinations. Items like cellphones, coffee, vehicles, clothes and much more…What an important occupation!
My career as evolved and elevated since working at APL… I remember referring back to Key for career advice when I pursued leadership position. With gratitude I’ve been promoted to Managing Logistics Analyst for accounts all over the world. With the help of earth angels, I can truly say I found my career niche.
Finally, a while back I created my Salsa entrepreneur business, Key’s supported my business with branding recognition at a Mark Taylor co. I can truly say, this is a woman who loves what she does and expands in the creative process. My career transitions began when we met, with gratitude, I feel blessed to know her!
