More than 30 years ago, Steve Bisciotti and Jim Davis created Aerotek, a go-to resource for applicants seeking a job in the defense and aerospace industry.
After just one year in operation, Aerotek brought in over one million dollars. Encouraged by this success, they started to build on that first industry and started providing staffing services for companies with other needs, including: automotive, IT, engineering, and science jobs. Since that first year, they have continued to grow and become a resource for people in all types of fields, now tapping into industries like finance, call centers, and aviation.
Aerotek expanded in terms of location too. While their headquarters are in Hanover, Michigan, they now have more than 200 offices all over the United States and even in parts of Canada and Europe. They help people find jobs near the big city as well as rural areas and strive to connect applicants with the type of work they're looking for-whether it's temporary or full-time.

Kelly Services did not start as a traditional staffing agency, but over time transformed into one. It began when a few of Kelly's colleagues approached him in dire need of a secretary or typist, just for a day, because someone did not show up to work or there was a heavy workload. Kelly then started to outsource some of his employees to help out and eventually began assembling a team of ready-to-work office employees to outsource whenever the need arose.
As these temporary workers became more in demand, the business grew. Its name changed to just Kelly Services in 1966 to reflect its evolved purpose-to provide employees for all types of industries around the world.
Kelly Services is a global staffing agency. With headquarters in Troy, Michigan, the company initially focused on staffing within the US, but in 1968 it expanded to Canada, and then an office opened in France four years after that.
The company has opened its arms to more industries over time as well. At the start, Kelly staffed for companies with light industrial, electronic assembly, call center, and of course office needs. Now, however, they help find work for people in education, law, finance, and health care, to name just a few. Such expansion was possible because of the company's success with its starting industries.
In 2013 alone, Kelly Services brought in about $5.4 billion and helped find work for 540,000 people. There are 1,100 employees at the company headquarters and 7,000 workers in locations around the world as well. Despite the impressive numbers, though, the company focuses on building relationships with all clients. They strive to bring the individual into every business transaction.
