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.
Hilary White, V.P., Product Development at EPS Literacy and Intervention
I have been a happy client of Personnel Associates, both as a hiring manager and as a career manager for over 20 years. I want to take a minute to thank Shelly Ray, however, for successfully completing an especially challenging recruiting assignment. We needed a seasoned editor to help us expand into peripheral markets, and the successful candidate had to work out of our location at some distance from the nearest city. A remote employee wasn’t going to work for us. Shelly uncovered not only our winning candiate, who is perfect for the position, but also several other candidates to give us a real choice. I had exhausted my own extensive network, and I was amazed at the number and caliber of candidates that Shelly was able to locate. When my own efforts left me discouraged, Shelly really came through for us.
Bill Brottmiller, Publishing Director at Western Schools
