Now, meet TODAY’S guest:

Monica Sheppard-Viator’s resume says she’s an “Experienced Workforce Solutions Architect with a demonstrated history of working in the staffing and recruiting industry. Strong sales professional skilled in Customer Retention, Team Building, Technical Recruiting, Staffing Services, and Internet Recruiting.” But of course that doesn’t tell the whole story!

So far, all of my guests on the How Did You Get Started Show with Felicia Slattery have been entrepreneurs – until today. It’s rare to find someone who has happily worked for the same company for DECADES – but that’s exactly what¬†Monica Sheppard-Viator has done.

A long-time Knoxville resident, in 1986, Monica started her career in the employment services industry, and by 1988 found her way to Kelly Services – and has been there ever since! Now THAT is dedication and love for her work and company!

I met Monica at a local networking event where she talks about, “That face you make when the new employee you hired doesn’t show up for their first day of work!” She’s funny and light-hearted, but don’t let that fool you. She’s a smart business person, with decades of success and growth behind her. Holding just about every job a person can hold while working with Kelly her official title now is “Account Executive.” In this interview we’ll be talking about her secret to staying with the same company for so long happily, and how people who may need a change could benefit from temporary office work.
