Back in the day, I had no idea what a temp agency was. Not a clue.
A college friend of mine pointed me in the direction of That’s Good HR while I was studying accounting at IUPUI. I was graduating soon and wanted more hands-on experience under my belt. My friend had just snagged a really great job through TGHR. It was a great match for her and propelled her career forward. I recall asking her “They helped you find this job? And they did that all for free?”
I can still remember walking into TGHR the first time. It was surprisingly warm and welcoming. Recruiter Amber Crosby and I hit it off immediately. Amber’s background was accounting, so she knew the ins and outs of my field. And as luck would have it, TGHR was looking for an intern. Before I knew it, I was interning alongside the controller there doing AR/AP, cash receipts, and other accounting duties that were right up my alley. It was great experience and I loved working with the TGHR team.
After my internship wrapped up and I graduated from IUPUI, I took a full-time position in public accounting. After two busy seasons, I decided it just wasn’t the right fit for me anymore.
But I couldn’t figure out where I fit in within the accounting field, and it was a tricky arena to get a job in at the time. I reached back out to Amber at TGHR. The timing was perfect—the company had grown and they needed accounting help. I came on as a senior staff accountant in August 2012 and have been here since doing everything from accounting to marketing to HR to recruiting. TGHR has been such an integral part of my career path—walking alongside me as an intern, a newbie in my field, a first-time mom, and now a more seasoned employee. They invest in the people who work with them and for them, and are in it for the long haul.
