What was your first job?
A positive first job experience has been shown to lead to steadier employment and more money earned over one's lifetime.
For many of our clients, the jobs we place them in are their first work experience. Especially in an entry-level job unrelated to one's future career goals, it can be easy to forget that this is just one step that leads to the next, and the next, and the next.
