I went to work for Cendera as a project consultant as needed and when Hurrican Katrina struck New Orleans and Mississippi I quickly had my hands full. Cendera contracted the FEMA call center in Dallas and was responsible for all hiring and training of its call center advisors. Being a ramp up company was their trademark but working with Department of Homeland Security and adjusting to the particulars of government agencies was overwhelming at first. I initially went there to train level 1 phone agents in handling FEMA assistance cases then turning them to FEMA represenatives for level 2. At the beginning we had almost 40 people. In three weeks, I assumed the role of Human Resources manager therefore responsible for hiring and logistics for over 1200. After Hurricane Rita, I was able to utilize what I had learned initially and the process went much smoother. I was able to teach more classes and deal with day to day issues that occur when hiring that many employees in such a short time. It taught me how to be quick on my feet and always keep a positive attitude. The devestation was worse than most of the public knew so my work hours, 4 a.m. to sometimes 11 or 12 at night was the only way I felt like I could help those in need. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to hire New Orleans victims who had lost everything and I still hear from some of them to this day. I was fortunate enough to help them secure new jobs once the FEMA project was over. After FEMA I began my role as Section Manager and opened up engineering offices throughout the country and eventually becamemore... the top contractor consulting firm for all of Verizon Telecommunications.less
