I felt that Mike took the time to get to know me on a more personal level. I could relate to him easily and have enjoyed talking with him.

Every experience I had with Mike was phenomenal. He was able to understand what it was I was looking for in a job and hunt down interesting positions at places I would never have before considered. With his help I was able to land several interviews. I was not the easiest job seeker to work with due to my very hectic schedule, but Mike was always very accommodating. In the end I accepted a job through a referral from a friend. I previously never considered working with a recruiter before but Mike has changed that view of mine. I would happily work with him again in the future or send other candidates his way.

Mike is very professional, experienced and resourceful in the industry! He is also very caring and supporting. He understands my career passion very well , and helped me not just finding for a "job", but a good position for me to grow my career in the direction I want to be. Thank you! Mike.

It was a pleasure working with Mike - though he contacted me first, I was actively looking to change roles and he found me an exciting new position and helped me secure very fair compensation for the new role. He offered me counsel and communication in a timely, consistent way - I was very grateful for that during a nerve-wracking hiring process. I would recommend him to anyone in a similar position and would be thrilled to work with him again.
