Hospitality Recruitment Works for Everyone

Stephanie was a pleasure to work with from the first call.  Having worked with recruiters in the past for my HR responsibilities, I was hesitant, but Stephanie lived up to the Patrice & Associates name. She guided me through the process, reaffirmed my beliefs, and made sure I was ready through every step.  Now I'm doing exactly what I want to be doing in my career, and there's plenty of opportunity for growth and advancement. Thanks Stephanie! Chris Hospitality Recruiting with Stephanie Reaffirmed My Beliefs

Hospitality Recruitment Works for Everyone

Thank you for having Vicki on your team, she is an unequivocal asset to Patrice & Associates. She has helped me two times in my job searches and she has delivered on both occasions. I don't have the pleasure to knowing Vicki on a personal level but I can tell you that her voice over the phone brings you confidences and let's you know that you are going to have a professional that cares about you, more over Vicki is not only professional but she I believe also understands people like me who are not so young anymore but with plenty of experience and drive to work. I have dealt with many recruiters from all platforms and I have had the chance to be able to compare the difference between a young recruiter and someone with more experience on the work force, my advice to job recruiting sites will be to pair people with a good match so we can talk at the same level.  The young people don't feel "threatened or pushed around" by and older peer, I think that will give us a better chance to a job and that's what Vicki delivers.   Best regards.

Dear seekers, I would like to tell you about the amazing experience I had working with Scott Jacobson of Patrice and Associates.  In my twenty plus years working as an executive chef I have worked with many career advancement and placement specialists, but none who took the time and directed care that Scott provided me.  His primary goal was to understand exactly what I was looking for and to tirelessly work towards that end.   He focused on my objectives and opened many doors for me.  He gave me invaluable insights into the positions I was considering and guided me as a friend and confidant would.  He understood my strengths and presented me in my most favorable light.  Through his research and diligence he assembled the most pertinent references for me, highlighted my experiences and career achievements.   He found me the exact job that I was looking for.  He was instrumental in negotiating my contract and made sure I was satisfied with every aspect of that contract.  His work did not end there.  Scott has contacted me at various stages of my employment just to check in, and most importantly, to see how I was doing.   Thank you kindly Scott for going above and beyond your duties.  It was a pleasure getting to know you.  Any of you fortunate enough to work with Scott will quickly find all of this to be evident. Sincerely, Chef Jonathan Pflueger  Scott found me the exact job that I was looking for.

I appreciate what Sherri and Patrice and Associates Hospitality Recruitment did for me and my career.

Sherri Balzer is an excellent job recruiter. I had been working with her for more than 3 months where I had multiple job interviews with different companies. She is always very detailed, caring, patient, and most of all very professional. I turned down multiple job offers because they were not a good fit for me and Sherri understood my reasons. Instead of losing hope in me she kept working hard looking for other companies that suited my skill set and knowledge. We found the perfect company and I got the best job offer available. I appreciate what Sherri and Patrice and Associates Hospitality Recruitment did for me and my career. Respectfully,

Andrew Figueroa
