Claire Baumhardt

Account Manager
Kalamazoo, Michigan | Staffing

I am an Account Manager for the Kalamazoo branch and have been a part of the team since March of last year. I’m primarily responsible for matching our employees to one of the many great job opportunities available in the Kalamazoo area. I am not only focused on helping associates find a job they love, but one they can happily maintain for years to come. I participate in the screening and interviewing of our candidates, give orientations, create resumes, and help with any HR-related circumstance that may arise.

In this role, I am able to interact with any department that may affect a client or an employee. Each week I communicate with our clients to stay up to date on their needs, new opportunities, and any details in-between to make sure their needs are met.

Before joining the AccessPoint team, I was a receptionist for a local tattoo shop, managing appointments, paperwork, and creative characters from all around the Kalamazoo area. Sometimes these familiar faces walk through AccessPoint’s door; it’s always a fun coincidence!
