I have known Veronica on and off for several years, so I have come to appreciate her style, promptness, and understanding of my career path. Our first call today started with a conversation, and ended with an interview scheduled with the Client tomorrow. True to form, Veronica was efficient, and her ability to match her Client's needs with my skill set is a trait I wish more recruiters possessed. I'm looking forward to my interview with the Client, and I owe this opportunity to Veronica and her professionalism. Eric

Even though she didn’t have a current opening in my area, Veronica took the time to understand my background / ambitions in case any future roles opened up.

Justin was very professional and knowledgeable. The most important thing was he was open minded to opportunities that on paper appear to stretch the box, but not shut the candidate down because of that. He was extremely polite and went above and beyond to ensure all my questions, the process and next steps were answered. I felt that he is a true ally for anyone looking to work with a top tier recruiter!

Jennifer is a go getter, listens extremely well and gets results. During our conversations re: employment opportunities, she makes me and I'm sure other candidates feel at ease. She is highly motivated and enthusiastic. What more can you ask for from a Recruiter/Talent Acquisition professional. In a nutshell, She's awesome!!
