Receptionist – Financial Services Firm
Allison graduated from The University of Iowa in 2009, with a degree in Communications and Political Science. She began her career as a sales representative at a large online employment website. Six months into her first job, Allison’s position was eliminated and she found herself back on the job market.
LaSalle met with Allison and discovered she desired a position in which she could learn the business from the ground up. A week after her LaSalle Network interview, Allison started as a temporary receptionist/human resources assistant at a registered broker/dealer headquartered in downtown Chicago. LaSalle’s client kept Allison on as a temporary employee six months longer than expected, and instead of ending the assignment as originally planned, they hired Allison permanently, converting her hourly rate into a competitive entry-level salary.
