Announcing New Franchisee in Denver!

Don’s Approach: Success in the hospitality business requires talented managers with technical expertise and excellent people skills.

Having a deep understanding of both sides allows me to develop the best possible fits. Next, I save you time. The hospitality business is built on excellent people—but identifying top candidates and vetting them takes time away from core business activities that…

WHAT TO DO IF MONEY GETS TIGHT – REWORK YOUR BUDGET

You can’t afford to spend as much as you did when you were employed. Your primary source of income no longer exists. Write down your expenses and differentiate between what you must spend money on as opposed to where you want to spend money. Contact your internet, cable and phone providers to see if you can obtain a discounted rate. Contact your insurance company to see if there are ways to reduce your home or auto insurance rates. If you live alone, consider a roommate. Eliminating unnecessary expenses will give you some extra breathing room while you are conducting your…

What Clients Say About Patrice & Associates

  • I'd recommend Gary Tietz implicitly to anyone currently looking for quality positions in the hospitality industry.
    I'm finally going back to work for a company that I can take pride in being employed with, for a position that I've been truly interested in, and Gary Tietz has been crucial in helping me in this process.  Gary has only tried to place me in positions that would truly be a good fit for me, and only with reputable companies that I would be comfortable in going to work for.  He has been great to work with, and has not only been very responsive and communicative, but has also provided great insight and information for each particular position that I've interviewed for.  I would certainly work with Gary again in the future!
    Thank You!

  • I had a wonderful experience working with Jodi Baer 

    She really took care of me and kept me up to date throughout the process.  I always felt Jodi was available for me and able to assist me.  I would highly recommended her to friends and associates who are in related fields.

  • Frank Rondeau created an Excellent Customer Service Experience!

    On paper the clients and my requirements were not a match.  Frank’s ability to create a match by identifying unrealized commonalities was remarkable.  I recommend working with Frank as a value proposition for all parties.

    Thank you,

  • Thank you Eric Coultoff very much for helping land me a great job!

    After the year of 2020, like so many others, the job that I worked so hard for had come to a halt. I had been looking for a similar job since to no avail. I am very glad I contacted Patrice & Associates for help.  Eric Coultoff really wanted to help find the right job for me. He even helped improve my resume.  He was in constant contact letting me know the process of it all and gave me multiple updates.  Within a week I received an interview and Eric helped me prepare for it.  I am now employed due to that interview and I thank Patrice & Associates, specifically!     Thank you, Michael Fossaceca Thank you Eric Coultoff very much for helping land me a great job!
  • Mr. Piroozmand really cares and took the time to coach me through the process. 

    Hamoon Piroozmand is hands down the best recruiter that I have ever worked with thus far in my career.  Hamoon did a really great job of making sure that the fit was right between the company I got hired with and myself by getting to know me and what I wanted out of the next company.  His passion for his work really shined when I was going through the interview process.  Hamoon was always responsive as well.  I was also interviewing with other companies at the time, outside of the recruiting that Hamoon did, and applied the techniques that I had discussed with Hamoon, I got final offers on all interviews.  I took the offer that Hamoon presented me with, even though the other concepts paid more because I trust the fit.  Overall, Hamoon will ask you to do things that other recruiters will ask you to do, but there was accountability and follow up throughout the whole process and if you're serious about getting the job, follow his plan.  It works!
    Sincerely,
    Kristin Barrett
