In any business, it’s people who make the difference. And it’s people who make the difference at Opti Staffing, people who know what it’s like to search for a job.
The staff at Opti are good at what they do – finding great jobs for great people. Each and every job candidate is important to the Opti recruiters. To us, each job candidate is an individual, not just a skillset, and we give each person the attention and respect they deserve. We get to know each candidate and what makes them unique and learn how we can best help them.
Jamal Elkhateib is an example of the kind of people we have at Opti: enthusiastic, persistent and driven to excel. We talked with Jamal about his job as a skilled trades recruiter in Tacoma, Washington and what he loves about Opti!
