Back in 1959, when NESCO erected its first drafting tables in an empty laundromat and hired its first designers and drafters, the firm was known to its clients as a job shop. A job shop provided contract support to its clients, performing design and drafting tasks that the client’s own staff couldn’t accommodate.
Those intrepid engineers, designers and drafters toiling away on job after job, and frequently moving from city to city, were known industry wide as job shoppers.
These job shoppers picked up the slack when a company’s’ workload grew too great, brought expertise to companies short on technical talent, and enabled companies to maintain their innovative edge and fulfill their production capacity.
The staffing industry has changed during the last 50 years – NESCO grew to become NESCO Resource – but the role of the resolute job shopper remains essential to our company and our clients.
That’s why we named this staffing blog for them. To recognize the contribution of their talent, their expertise and their time.
