2020 was a year to remember, or forget. We all know hospitality was one of the hardest hit industries. The restaurants that survived had to “pivot” to stay afloat. Carry out, curbside pick up, and delivery all became the “norm”. Restaurants and Patrice & Associates pivoted together. The pandemic is […]

I am writing to express my sincere gratitude to Duke Witte for his assistance in finding me a new job in the hospitality industry. I was disgruntled with my previous job, and I was feeling very discouraged about my prospects. I had been working in the restaurant industry for many years, and I had a lot of experience and skills, but I was having a hard time finding a better opportunity.
I was contacted via LinkedIn by Duke, and thank goodness I was. Mr. Witte was incredibly helpful and supportive throughout the entire process. He took the time to understand my skills and experience, and worked tirelessly to find me a job that was a good fit.
Duke was also very honest and upfront with me about the job market. He didn't sugarcoat things, but also didn't give up on me. He kept me motivated and encouraged, and never gave up on finding me a job that I would love.
I am so grateful to Duke Witte and his team for their help. I am now happily employed, and I am so happy that I was able to find a job that I love. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a job in the restaurant industry. He is a true professional, and is dedicated to helping his clients find the perfect job!
Thank you again for everything!
Working with Chris Bovio made job searching so much easier!
Not only was he available and involved in my search, but also knowledgeable regarding the position. Chris used his industry experience and recruiting network to find the best position for me and my skill set. My only regret is that my new job is so perfect for me that I won’t need to use Chris or Patrice & Associates later.
Michael Greig was absolutely fantastic in every way!
He gave me options and suggestions & eventually found a great for me. Communication was easy and he went above & beyond. Also, he seems like an all around good dude. Thanks again Michael. Solid work out there. You’re hired :)
Bryan Curtis was fantastic to work with!
Bryan was very on top of things throughout my recruiting process to the engineering firm I accepted my position with. I responded to his LinkedIn posting and heard back from him within 24 hours. He continually spoke with me throughout the process checking in regularly and answering all my questions. Bryan was instrumental in helping me find a great job.
Frank Rondeau was a really big help!
When it came to helping me find my new job, he knocked it out of the park! He was very honest and thorough throughout the entire process. We had multiple conversations along the way and he always checked in after interviews. Frank was amazing to work with, and I'm super excited to start my new journey thanks to him.
