Mike and his Team have been very helpful for me. But I would most like to commend the fact that he wanted to make sure I was the right person for the firm I was eventually hired for.

Elizabeth Sturt has an ally in Vicki Marshall

Over the course of this last year I had been seeking employment in restaurant management.  I repeatedly saw jobs that interested me through Patrice and Associates.  I had dealt with other recruiters, and to be honest, I never had much faith in the idea.  The recruiters that I dealt with tried to get me working at places that just never seemed to be the right fit.  That all changed when I met Vicki Marshall at Patrice and Associates.  From our first conversation, I felt that I had an ally in the world of interviews, cover letters, and background checks.  Vicki…

Helen helps Jay get a job!

From: Jay Emmendorfer It is with great pleasure that I recommend Helen Nourai, as she was extremely helpful during my job search.

Vinegar Gets Popular in Cocktails

Vinegar can be found in nearly every cupboard in every town in every country around the world. For over 10,000 years, humans have found inspiring uses for it – from healing elixirs, to pickling, to cleaning, to dissolving chewing gum, to preserving fruit. Vinegar was most likely created by accident by some sad sap who neglected a cask of wine out behind the local pub, only to find upon his return that it had turned sour (the French word for it is “vinaigre,” which, directly translated, means “sour wine”). And thus, like so many other happy accidents in the beverage…

What Clients Say About Patrice & Associates

  • Darryl Jackson makes you his priority! 

    I would say that Darryl Jackson was very professional and helped me in all aspects of my job search.  Darryl took my resume and made it more attractive and appealing, he was also very attentive to my needs and what my expectations were.  What I feel was a key part of the success in our relationship was the constant communication on his part.  Darryl makes it his business to know his client and always speaks to you in a positive manner.  He tries to make you see the good aspects of each individual employer.  In the future if I would need to seek other employment I truly believe I would look for his availability.    

    Thanks,
