Why Kaitlynn Joined Skills Alliance

I joined Skills Alliance in November 2017 and I am so glad I did. From my first interview, I could tell Skills Alliance was not your typical agency. Throughout the process, I was able to speak to numerous employees and after hearing the passion in their voices for Skills Alliance is what truly convinced me to join the team. I have really enjoyed working for Skills Alliance because they have always valued my opinion and my experience. You will never hear “that’s how it has always been done” from the managers here. Every team member brings a unique skill set and different ways of thinking to the table, which I believe has helped the team achieve such success.

Working at Skills Alliance

Working at Skills Alliance has far exceeded my expectations. While most of the work I do is independent of others, the assistance I receive from all levels of the company is truly something that cannot be found at other companies. Skills Alliance has a very supportive environment and has created a team that is constantly trying to improve themselves. I look forward to heading into the office each morning.
