I've worked with Mark in multiple searches for new opportunities as my career has grown. He has always been there with a friendly call to go over not just where I'm going, but where I want to be. He has always been amazing with communication and any time I need help, Mark never gives up. I would recommend him to anyone.

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.

Shannon has been very encouraging, helpful, and knowledgable. She gave me critical feedback on my resume and really made it shine. My resume was just submitted to the employer. Regardless of the results, I think the work I've done with Shannon is going to greatly increase my chances of getting a job in the future. I would absolutely work with her again!

Even from the initial LinkedIn message, I felt there was something different about Kailyn's approach to understanding my needs. She asked intelligent questions and gathered the information needed to find an employer that matches my requirement. This made her stand out from other recruiters.

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.

Working with Mark went extremely well. He is very knowledgable and provided great advice all along the way. He provided me insight into the company that had the open position. Even during this social distancing situation he stayed on top of things and although the process took longer he communicated with me and provided updates. I have accepted a new position and could not be happier.

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.

Kate was very open about a manager position that I discussed with her, and her sharing of the environment in which someone in the position would need to operate enabled me to discuss how I can perform in such in environment. Really getting into the employer expectations and honest discussion of my capabilities has been very helpful. I look forward to continuing to work with Kate on this opportunity!

Michael was wonderful; as good of a recruiter as I have worked with. I believe he has great insight and instincts, knows what both the client and individual candidates are seeking and does a terrific job aligning the two. I would be very pleased to work with Michael again in the future if my career needs merit such interaction.

James contacted me out of the blue on LinkedIn. He was pleasant to speak with, asked a bunch of questions about both my professional experience and my private life to get an understanding of where I am at. It didn't take too long until he had me in a couple of interviews with some companies no one else has offered, local companies, mid size. He's been a great help with both the interviews he's helped with and with those he had nothing to do with. Tons of advice and information, helpful as can be. It's a great pleasure working with him so far and I'd gladly recommend him to friends looking for a role somewhere.
