Simply amazing! Aaron is able to review a candidate holistically and match suitable positions. Does not use the Spam & Slam approach as I have experienced with 120+ other recruiters recently. Aaron is thankfully an anecdote for the recruiting industry, in my experience. I would definitely review any further prospects with Aaron without hesitation, which is not something I have afforded other recruiters.

Jerry was perfectly communactive, professional, and welcoming. It is obvious Jerry is an advocate for both the candidate and the employer. Other recruiters just want to fill roles to get a payday. Jerry clearly was concerned about finding a good fit for all parties involved including when it came to actually presenting the job offer.

Michael is one of the rare top-tier recruiters and easily the best I've worked with in my almost 20 year career. He's working with the best companies out there, his approach is transparent and methodical, and he's 100% on point with his coaching and communication - seriously, Michael was calling me with real-time updates daily while on vacation in Hawaii. I could not have had a better experience; Michael is true professional.

Working with Michael has been a pleasure. His knowledge of the role and client was extremely helpful. Michael was professional, patient and showed a lot of understanding not just for his client, but for my needs as well. I was able to be transparent with him on what I was looking for, and he was just as transparent with me. At every step of the way, I felt like I was taken care of. Ultimately, this led to a job offer which I accepted. I give credit to my recruiter, Michael, for all of his help and assistance throughout the process.

Jerry develops and delivers information clearly and concisely, in a well-organized manner. He clearly and concisely articulates key messages. He pays attention to the communication at hand. Jerry waits until the interviewee is done with their idea before speaking. He asks clarifying questions when they are most useful.

James is awesome. Amidst a bit of an unconventional and prolonged hiring process, James was a kind and consistent communicator. When I expressed I had questions about the position after my initial interview he extended himself to help address those questions, and gave guidance for me to consider as I evaluated my offer.

Shannon was one of the most knowledgeable recruiters I've worked with. Her knowledge of her client's req and associated company "intangibles" was impressive. I feel like I already have a solid feel for what the job and culture will be like before even interviewing with them. This is key for both sides of the transaction and I feel like she does a great job balancing the interests between candidate and client.

This is my second round of working with Aaron. My last job ended up being a great fit for me and I was so grateful Aaron was there to guide me. 3 years later I reached out because I trust Aaron and feel comfortable and confident he understand what I’m looking for. He never pressures, just listens and suggests which I greatly appreciate.

Shannon is a great recruiting partner. She works hard to establish and maintain solid long-term relationships with candidates and hiring companies. Shannon has placed me in good opportunities over the years. She is a great listener and remembers what I like and dislike. She's great at bringing me relevant opportunities and not wasting my time with roles that aren't a good fit for me. I would recommend both her and EdgeLink as your "go to" if you're searching for a new role or looking to hire a candidate in Portland. They stand head and shoulders above the rest.

Regardless of the outcome with the job opportunity Shannon has introduced me to, I feel extremely lucky to be working with her as a recruiter. In particular, I appreciate Shannon's industry expertise, job-application protocols, as well as her candor, tact, warmth, and sincerity. I would highly -- highly -- recommend that any candidate work with a recruiter as knowledgeable, proactive and approachable as Shannon is. I'm very fortunate to have done so.
