Allison has been at Tradesmen for around four years and we truly believe she goes above and beyond for the field employees she helps hire and coordinate. She is always on her A-game to bring the best assistance to them through the hiring process. Allison is also quick to assist fellow project coordinators with questions or training. Also worth noting is that Allison is always able to take feedback and understands that there is always room to improve on how things are done.

We would like to introduce you to Kevin and Jorden Baltimore who share the January Employee Spotlight. This Father and Son Duo came to us with no trade experience whatsoever, but were both very willing and eager to learn and grow as Electricians with Tradesmen International. Kevin came to us with a career as an Investment Advisor and Jorden, a bouncer at a nightclub, both looking for a change and build a career together. They were shown how to pull cable as well as other aspects of the trade. They are currently Helpers, but with perfect attendance and the determination to learn a new trade, they are well on their way to becoming Marine Electricians. Kevin and Jorden have proven that it's never too late to start a new career, learn something new, and that the character of a candidate is what really matters. Thank you Kevin and Jorden for all you do at Tradesmen!
