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.

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 have worked in the food-service industry in the Corpus Christi market for 13 years. Working with Lilliam Zanatti was the edge I needed to be able to accept my dream job. Corpus Christi is an expanding market in the food-service industry, but its not without it's challenges. Ms. Zanatti assisted me with those challenges. She was professional, encouraging and often times motivating. Although I respected her time, I knew she was available anytime I needed to speak with her. She was literally there for me every step of the way and has reached out to me with words of encouragement and congratulations since accepting my new position. I highly recommend Lilliam to any individual or company looking to fill any recruiting needs. She was an absolute joy to work with, and I honestly believe that I would not have gotten my current opportunity without her." -Marc D., Culinary Manager I would not have gotten my current opportunity without her.
