Mike helps Ricky with a new Career!

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. He didn't just want to fill a position with anyone. 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…

Awesome Client Testimonial!

I started working with Patrice & Associates in 2013.   I had had a positive experience with them early in my career and as a result, chose to reach out to them as an option for recruiting for our DC market to start with the hopes of using them on a national and/or international capacity.  Currently, they are the sole recruiter that Richard Sandoval Restaurants uses in this market and based on their performance, have begun using them for job searches in other parts of the country.   The experience with Patrice & Associates has been a positive one.  We operate…

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…

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.

    Best,
    James McClain Jr.
