I am generally wary of working with recruiters but Shannon is someone I can trust. Some of the opportunities she has shown me are not publicly posted and I don't think I would have found them without her help. I have a specialized resume and Shannon understands this. She has shared with me a number of job opportunities that are curated by her. She did not share any ideas that were not a good fit. In one round of search she found such a good match to my skills and interests that it pulled me out of self-employment and led to a good period of employment.

Shannon has been a pleasure to work with. Unlike other recruiters I have worked with, she seems to really understand her client's business and the requisite needs. She is also quick to follow up and has been very transparent about the whole process. She also provided some really helpful tips and context leading up to the interview with her client, which recruiters don't always seem keen to share.

Shannon was excellent in every respect. Very easy to talk to and our conversation flowed instead of being routinely dry, which aided my enthusiasm for the opportunity we discussed. I really do not have a referral to provide at this moment. But anyone I know who comes on the market will be sent her way.

James listened to both the experience I had, as well as what I was looking for in a job itself. He was quickly able to locate an opportunity that fit those needs and had me submitted for it within a couple of hours. It is quite obvious that he wants to help and is not just doing this for a paycheck or to fill any opportunity with any individual.

I would highly recommend Kailyn to any of my friends who might be looking for a job change.

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.

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 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.
