    Allison Jones – Virtual Recuiter – and multiple Paralympic medal winner

    Allison Jones is a unique kind of athlete – she competes in both the Summer and Winter Paralympic Games. To train and pay for all the equipment she needs, Allison got a job with Adecco as a virtual recruiter, which allows her to work flexibly from home around her training schedule.

    "Being able to work in a corporate environment gave me a chance to experience new things. Having the support from my colleagues gives me more connections and a better drive to do my best in the work and sports environment. I know that I bring 100% to my bike and I am going to bring 100% to the tasks I have at Adecco".

    - Allison Jones

    “Now you’re ready for some personal advice and guidance. So, we’ll show you how you can best showcase your unique background and capabilities, and put yourself on the job market. It’s the part we call Job Placement and you can be sure you’ll get the best support available because Adecco has been doing just that for years.”

    - Scott Waletzke Director, Recruitment Center of Excellence, Adecco Group, NA
