Patrice & Associates Impacts Peoples Lives

This Nation has just gone through a tough economic time, only surpassed by 1929. I found myself jobless for the first time in 25 years. The people at Patrice and Associates, specifically Stella Hernandez and Bernice Gregorieff, pushed me to remain positive because they knew they’d find me a great job with a wonderful company. They stayed diligent with communication and perseverance and met their goal. Only later did I find out that I was Stella’s First Placement as a recruiter with Patrice & Associates.  I want to thank them now and know that if I have any needs in the…

Recruiters and the Instinct of Immediacy: Doing it NOW!

The most powerful tools a recruiter can have—even before he or she masters tactics—is immediacy and proactivity. To do a thing immediately, acting in anticipation of future problems, needs or changes.   A few Examples: You have a new job order? If it’s workable, recruit for it—make a submission happen—market someone in NOW!  Your client expresses interest in a candidate you present? He wants to phone interview at the end of the week? Influence him to do it NOW! Tonight, not tomorrow or the end of the week! Once a client expresses an interest in a candidate—even at the beginning of the…

Home of 2 Major Tobacco Companies Ban Smoking

In dozens of states, Gary couldn't light up before tucking into his meat-lover's pizza, as he did at this Restaurant & Bar this week. But in North Carolina, the nation's leading tobacco producer, limits on indoor smoking have lagged behind those in much of the country.   That changes Saturday, when smoking in restaurants and bars is banned in the state that is home to two major tobacco companies and where the golden leaf helped build Duke and Wake Forest universities.  "There's smokers and there's nonsmokers. We've gotten along in the past," Richards, 52, said this week during a pre-meal smoke…

What Clients Say About Patrice & Associates

  • Darryl Jackson has been amazing during this whole process!

    He has kept in contact with me from the very beginning! He gave the company I interviewed for a good vision of myself and they are talking highly of me! Without Darryl, I would still be jobless! He has called me on several occasions to check in and show me that he is reaching out to the next people he needs to reach out to! I could not have asked for a better supporter to help me in my job search! His business is going to excel if he continues to work this hard with his clients like he did with me and I honestly cannot thank him enough!
    Thanks,
    Josh Adams

  • Matt gave excellent information that helped me put my best foot forward. 

    I had the pleasure of working with Matt Lopez.  We have been on this journey with a few companies. I always felt well represented and excited about the opportunities I was presented. His timely follow up is one of the many attributes that stood out the most.  It is hard to find professionalism at this level.  He gave consistent feedback, and pep talks before my interviews.  It's quite a process when dealing with second and third interviews, and Matt constantly provided great energy and enthusiasm.  He also made sure I was always prepared in having all the ammunition I needed.  Whether footnotes, information about the brand, or providing key examples to respond during the interviews.  With this pandemic, it's been difficult.  Many companies are hesitant with the direction they are moving.  Even with my vast experience, Matt is my most valuable asset.  I have several Colleagues and I would highly recommend his service without a doubt.
