What Clients Say About Patrice & Associates

  • I would like to take a moment to thank Sally Kennedy of Patrice & Associates for assisting me during my recent search for employment.

    Executive Recruiter, Sally Kennedy, was instrumental during this effort. This was the first time I have worked with a recruiter (other than the military) and Sally's professionalism and dedication showed me that I made the right choice. She took the time to understand my career goals and provided advice and guidance during the process which ultimately contributed to successfully matching me and my new employer.        

    Bravo Zulu to Sally and the team of Patrice and Associates!

         

    Very Respectfully,

  • Sally Kennedy is a Keeper!

    Sally Kennedy helped me polish my resume, prepared me for who I would be speaking with, as well as what they were looking for.  We spoke several times through email and over the phone during an extended interview process with the company that I am now working with.  All of her help and insights during this process are greatly appreciated.

    Thank you,

  • Sally Kennedy knocked it out of the park!

    I was recently placed by Sally Kennedy, a member of the Patrice & Associates Executive Recruiting. I was contacted by Sally via social media and we set up a call soon after. She was very professional and helped me review and update my resume to present to the leadership team. I was selected soon after for an interview, which Sally helped ensure I was prepared and had all I needed to proceed with the interview process. Sally helped keep me focused during the process and was there for me like she was my agent, not a recruiter. It was Sally's initial paradigm that I would be a good fit and was she right!! After 3 interviews I was offered a position and I couldn't have done it without Sally. Sally followed up until the offer letter was signed! Looking for the right opportunity can be tough especially when working full time but Sally made this process much easier!
