What Clients Say About Patrice & Associates

  • Sue made the process exciting!

    I had the pleasure of working with Sue Wooten of Patrice & Associates at the end of 2019. I had assumed that most hiring was complete for the year, but because of Sue's dedication to wrapping up my hire before the end of the year, she made sure that nothing was left to chance. She moved my new employer to make quick decisions, facilitate all calls and interviews, prepared me to discuss my previous experience and introduced me to my new companies goals and challenges. It's the rare case when you walk into a new position with your eyes wide open, but Sue's clarity and communication skills made the process fun, interesting and exciting. I have never worked with a recruiter in the past, but I would recommend Susan to anyone who wants to find just the right fit. I love my new job and I love that it is such a great fit for me. Thank you, Christina Bagapor-O'Harrow Sue made the process exciting!

    Milton is a wonderful resource!

    Milton Sallee reached out to me back in August of this year and at first I didn't know what to think having never worked with a recruiter before.  Milton was kind, gracious and exceptionally knowledgeable.  He helped me navigate my way through my interviews, hiring, fears, moving and starting.  He has stood by me in the process and been a wonderful resource.  I would highly recommend Patrice and Associates to anyone! Sincerely, Liv Ashcraft Milton is a wonderful resource!
