Carmen, you are one special lady and will always have a special place in my heart. From the beginning when you believed in me and got me my first job with Marilyn Rose, Executive Director of Girl Scouts, when we first moved here to getting my second job at the Chamber.  Because of you I am where I am today!  I wish you all the very best!

When I moved to Oklahoma some 20 years ago, I was having trouble finding a good job on my own.

I didn’t have any contacts to find a position that fit my background so I went to Career Employment for help.

Carmen and her staff were very courteous and helpful and they found the right job for my skills. I stayed there for 7 years and enjoyed my job.

When I wanted something more challenging, I went back to Career Employment, updated my resume’ and Career Employment found the perfect job for me. I would not have been able to even get my foot in the door with the new company because they only went through an agency.

After two interviews I accepted my perfect career. 12 years later I’m still here and I love my job at The Frank Phillips Foundation dba Woolaroc!!

Thank you Carmen and Career Employment Service!!

When I first moved to Bartlesville in March of 2000 one of my first priorities as a single mom was finding a job, and finding it fast! Like most people I looked at classifieds in the local paper, applied for a couple openings, but I needed more opportunities than that alone could afford so I went to Career Employment Service.

One of the things that impressed me the most about Career was that Carmen Stanton, the owner, took the time to personally interview all applicants. This wasn’t just to assess their skills and talents, this was also to understand their needs and determine what current job openings would best fit them personally. Within a few days I had several interviews and within a week a job at the Bartlesville Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB)! It was a great blessing to me and my family.

After eight years with the CVB I resigned my position due to my husband’s work shifting him to Houston. Once his assignment was over and we returned to Bartlesville in 2012 I again contacted Carmen about a new job and within a week was interviewing and being offered my current job as an Executive Assistant with Service & Technology Corporation.

My ongoing experience with Career Employment has been richly rewarding in that each position I have been given has become permanent and long term. When anyone is looking for a job I always refer them to Carmen or Jim. That includes my two sons who are currently working through Career Employment Service and thoroughly enjoying their positions with DSR.

I moved to Bartlesville as a newly-wed and recent college graduate. When my individual job search proved unfruitful I contacted Carmen Stanton at Career Employment for assistance. Carmen was able to connect me with several temporary positions during the first few months. Before long she had arranged an interview with a local employer who hired me full-time. Nearly twenty years later I am with the same employer.

With their many years of experience and well-developed associations in town, the staff at Career Employment is top-notch in job placement. I continue to recommend them to others looking for employment in Bartlesville.

While I was in school, Career Employment Service placed me in several interesting short term positions to help me earn extra money. After I graduated from college, I went to them for help and they worked with me to find several longer term jobs while I was looking for permanent employment. One of those temp jobs turned into a career position! The personal attention Career Employment Service gave to me in finding jobs that fit my needs was amazing.

When I moved to Dewey, Oklahoma 16 years ago, I went to Career Employment Service to find employment. I didn’t know anyone or have any information on the businesses in the Bartlesville area. Cathy and Carmen were very friendly and helpful and it didn’t take them long to find me a temporary assignment with a large local company. Within three weeks I was hired full-time and have been working for the same company ever since. Part of my current job duties are recruiting. I rely heavily on Jim and the rest of the crew at Career Employment to help me find qualified candidates. They are a great bunch to work with!!
