The Speed Staffing System™ lives up to its reputation for S-P-E-E-D!
Brooklyn Medical Assistant graduate Jeanette Alicea received three interview requests on the Speed Staffing System™, one each week for three consecutive weeks. It was a hectic time. She found herself rushing from one medical facility to another for interviews.
The job Jeanette ultimately took was for two extremely busy pediatricians, Drs. Dupiton and Grant, in Cambria Heights, Queens, where she has the opportunity to use her bi-lingual English/Spanish skills with those patients who prefer to speak Spanish. “I am getting to put to use what I learned at Allen School,” Jeanette said. She is working with two medical assistants who have been there for an extended period of time and she feels that she is handling herself well, “learning new things every single day.” “The Speed Staffing System™ was really great. It helped me to land my first job,” Jeanette said, “I didn’t have to wait very long to get called. It was so quick.” She explained that the process of preparing to make a sixty-second statement on the Speed Staffing System™ and putting together the information for an individual online page was integral to preparing her well for interviews. “During the interview for the job I got, the doctor told me that she really liked what was written about me,” said Jeanette. “The fact that she saw [on the Speed Staffing profile page] that I had worked at Head Start was of interest to her and when I came in, she mentioned that. She also knew who to expect when I arrived – because of my photo!” “On another interview,” Jeanette said, “the doctor mentioned about my perfect attendance. He saw that on my profile page.” Summing up her entire experience with Allen School, Jeanette said, “It was great- the instructors, the staff, Ms Jackson, Speed Staffing – it was actually fabulous!”
