He made sure I was a great fit first.  I would recommend Mike and Patrice & Associates LLC not only to job seekers but also to Companies looking for great talent!    Ricky Gibbons

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. Any time that I emailed or called Helen, she would respond either immediately or within a couple of hours.  When I was preparing for an interview, Helen would send me detailed information on the company and tips on how to succeed at the interview. Helen was very encouraging during the entire process, and advocated for me with the prospective employers. In comparison to all other recruiters that I've worked with Helen is by far the best.  She is…

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…

  • I received a call from Clint, after he introduced himself he told me about a job he thought I would be perfect for. A franchise of the company I had previously worked for. What he was about to find out was I interviewed with them and tanked it. Yes, I tanked an interview with a company I spent 9 years working for. You have to understand I've only had 2 jobs in 20 years so and I was nervous and wasn’t sure what to expect, I also thought my work experience with the company would be doing some of the talking for me. Clint said he would be in touch if anything came up. I thought that was the end of it. A few days later he called and helped me rewrite my resume to get the best of what I did that I didn’t think was that important onto paper. He called with another opportunity and set up the interview. Clint didn’t just set up an interview, he called the day before and spent an hour of his time prepping me for it. We went over the list of questions he sent that he thought would be asked and questions I should ask. I was more relaxed and the interview went well. I got a call 3 days later after they finished up the rest of the interviews and was offered the job. I called Clint and told him the good news, and that he wouldn’t have to deal with me anymore. Instead I was told he would be there throughout my training and the transition into the position. It’s awesome to know that someone is there to talk to if needed.  I truly believe I got the job because of Clint. I know I did on my merits but Clint was a huge help. Who would have thought one and done. I would recommend Clint Carpenter and Patrice and Associates to anyone.   Bethanne Volz
