I really appreciated the unsolicited guidance I didn't know I needed about making my resume more currently functional for marketing in this competitive job market. Also appreciated was her very clear and direct information about current market and expectations.

Leonel recommends Matthew to others

Matthew explained the step by step process we would be going through and left time for any questions or concerns I had. I did not feel rushed throughout the meeting nor did I feel intimidated to ask questions. Matthew was also eager to find out how my job search was going for me and encouraged me to keep him updated and to ask him questions whenever I felt the need to.

Thomas W. | Global Tax Director 5.0

Thomas recommends Audra to others  
1 day ago

Audra's approach is very different from most recruiters. She asks a lot of questions and listens very closely to the responses. Her knowledge of my somewhat specialized industry (tax) is clearly very deep. This was a surprisingly pleasant experience; I very much look forward to working with Audra going forward. Ted
