Testimonial from a STP Woman in Construction

I had a great experience with STP over the past 6 months. They are very accommodating especially with being a single mom, they were very responsive in a quick matter no matter what my question was. The pay was very acceptable for my experience and the hiring process at STP is very quick and easy. They were able to get me out the same week I applied.”

A Few Words from our President, Mary Chisholm

Mary shares her path into the construction industry, and the challenges she has experienced in creating a more inclusive business today.

I have spent the last 18 years in the Staffing world, 12 years specializing in skilled trades construction. Although I originally pursued a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, I stumbled upon the staffing industry by chance and have been devoted to it ever since. Approximately 3 years ago I decided it was time to take all the industry experience and start my own business. Skilled Trades Partners.

When I was hired to work in a construction staffing office in 2011, I was the only woman in the company in a construction staffing role in the whole Northeast. It’s a male dominated industry, so being comfortable being the only woman sometimes walking on to a jobsite was a challenge that I had to overcome. Other challenges I faced were a major lack of safety equipment that fit women properly as well as stereotypes from men, who assumed that I don’t know anything about construction as a woman. At the beginning, I often felt out of place on sites.

As I’ve grown to love the industry, I find great joy in seeing women thrive in their roles here at STP. I think that women bring very diverse visions to the table. We naturally have great problem solving skills and a natural ability to build strong relationships. With the creation of STP, there’s even more opportunities for women in construction to be respected in their roles now, which is great.

If I had the opportunity to give advice to a young woman entering the industry now, I’d say… “Stay strong, don’t be intimidated and stick it out. The industry is going to continue to add more and more women into the workforce!”
