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.
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.
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.
Kailyn was extremely diligent and knowledgeable not only in presenting me with relevant opportunities, but also helping to navigate the interview process and negotiate the terms of my contract. She clearly has a great deal of expertise and experience–I definitely felt as though I was in good hands.
Kashie did a great job of keeping me updated along the way. Getting a new job can be stressful but Kashie made it a very comfortable process. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a new job in the IT industry!

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.

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!
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.
Working with Aaron has proven to be one of the best recruiting experiences I could have asked for. I really love my new found position and would gladly recommend working with him to anyone looking for a job in the tech sector.
James contacted me regarding a position I had found online. He communicated the position well both through email and then on the phone. He was patient with me as I asked many questions related to both the job and as I described my job history and how it fit with the role I applied for. He also answered any questions I had about next steps and how being a contractor worked.
James has been exemplary since the day he first contacted me as a potential candidate.
He showed complete professionalism and expressed a sincere desire to do the right things for my success in securing an offer from an employer.
James was positive, enthusiastic, and quick to communicate by email and phone to keep me updated on the status of a potential role.
He quickly demonstrated himself, and EdgeLink, as a partner and advocate in my behalf.
I look forward to working with James now and in the future.

I feel it is important to get to know a recruiter personally, both ways - without that intimacy, it is hard to really vouch for someone. I appreciated James listening to my whole story and also happy that he shared his journey to becoming a recruiter.
