TAMPA, Fla., May 13, 2011 — In the midst of an economic crisis that has hit Florida harder than nearly any other state, some Florida businesses are booming. Businesswoman Rajh Cromie, owner of Snelling Staffing Services Tampa and Sarasota franchises, knows what works when it comes to connecting the right people to the right companies in Florida. As head of Snelling Staffing Services Sarasota, she has helped countless unemployed Floridians find jobs at great companies for more than 20 years. Cromie has generated so much success for the Sarasota Snelling office that it expanded to Tampa last month.
The new office, located at 3140 West Kennedy Boulevard, saw immediate foot traffic from community members needing work, especially in areas of accounting, hospitality, IT, project managers and administrative/clerical. It also garnered instant support from businesses with staffing needs from temporary to permanent.
“We did our homework and knew that the market just up the coast from us was in dire need of workforce solutions. However, what we had on paper still didn’t prepare us for the onslaught of folks hungry for our help in Tampa,” said Cromie.
“I’m passionate about this business because of the wonderful people we serve every day,” added Cromie, who gets particularly jazzed about filling temporary positions within incredibly short turnaround times. “I love this work because it helps people, the Tampa community businesses and Florida’s economy. I feel like I am not only part of the solution, I am part of a fast and furious, energetically paced win-win-win scenario for us all.”
“Snelling has been around for 60 years and I have all the confidence in the world that we’ll be around for at least 60 more serving the Tampa and surrounding central Florida communities,” she added.
