“Alexa’s communication skills, professionalism and effectiveness throughout our entire recruiting process was superb. If a client’s resume and or the first interview did not produce the skill set and/or talent that I was looking for and expecting, Alexa received that information well, and moved on to identifying the next possible client. I also very much appreciated how Alexa was an advocate in looking out for both sides – she was diligent in all of her efforts of finding me and my company the best hire, while also wanting to find the right position and company for the potential candidate.”

V.P., Product Development at EPS Literacy and Intervention

“I currently have the pleasure of working with Alexa on several positions and find her to be very responsive to our requirements. She asks the right questions and understands how to find us the best candidates for the position. Recently she found us a terrific hire for a sales position in our Denver territory. I would recommend Alexa for higher education publishing recruitment.”

“As a job seeker, I can highly recommend Shelly for work in the publishing space. While she found me through Linked In, she didn’t stop there. She made sure I understood the nuance of the position in play and that I was truly qualified. I appreciated her thoroughness, patience and sense of humor as she allowed the process to unfold in its own organic way. Taking her calls was always productive. Should I ever need a recruiter, I would not hesitate to turn to her.”
