Michelle Damstra

I've spent the better part of my professional career in the "sales" industry.  I've met some amazing people, made great friends and even better networking contacts.  Every day is different and every person I speak with is a potential client that may need our assistance in the future.  Everyone knows "sales isn't just a job, it's a lifestyle".  I like to approach my job or the description of my job as "relationship building".  Regardless how big or small a business may be, it takes time and energy to build a relationship with the appropriate contacts and develop a level of trust and understanding.  Every business is different and has different needs or different things to offer.  By assisting them with identifying their staffing/employment needs, I not only feel that I'm doing my job successfully but that I'm helping their business succeed as well.  Office Staffing is a Local GR company with a great foundation and a proven track record of success.  As they continue to grow, I look forward to growing with them both professionally and personally.

Samona Mills

As a recruiter in the staffing industry, my main responsibility is to provide Elwood's clients with exceptional candidates to fill their open positions. I enjoy my job because putting qualified people to work is my passion. In some ways, I feel as though I am a detective. Every time I receive a new position to recruit for, I enjoy trying to locate qualified individuals and solving the mystery of whether they are the best fit candidate for the position.  

I originally relocated to the Grand Rapids area after being promoted to a position here with my previous employer. While in the process of completing my M.B.A. studies at Davenport University, I landed my first HR position as a contract recruiter/generalist with one of Elwood's clients. We would often utilize Elwood's candidates to fill our positions, so when Elwood said they were looking for a new recruiter, it was a perfect transition!
