My biggest value is honesty and I believe Jimmie picked up on that right away and never led me astray. He was straightforward, transparent and offered great advice. As well as attentive, following up promptly.
I'm currently in the process with interviewing with a client. Jimmie has been quick to respond and has kept me updated on the process. I would recommend Jimmie to anyone looking for an IT job in the Denver area.
Jimmie has showed a genuine interest in me and in helping me to find the right job. He made me feel that I was more than just grist for the mill, so to speak. He has been open, accessible and honest. I remain hopeful that Jimmie will spot the right opportunity for me soon! If I were an employer looking to hire staff, I would want Jimmie working for my team!
I just got off my first call with Jimmie, and was really happy with the way he gave me some insights on the role, the location of the job and the hiring company in a natural and forthcoming manner. His follow up communications came within minutes, and he took some extra time to talk to me about relocation, the hiring process and some of the extra requirements necessary for candidates to be considered. His approach is friendly and fresh, which is something special in todays electronic submitted and bot scanned resume world. I'll recommend him to anyone I know who is looking for a new gig.
Jimmie literally called me within 5-10 minutes of my application through LinkedIN. Then we had a very pointed conversation about how my experience directly aligned with the role. Jimmie gave me some great feedback regarding my resume and we agreed to move forward with submission to the position.
I thoroughly enjoyed our candid and productive conversation and look forward to working with Jimmie through this process.
