I am very grateful to Michael Bickle

Michael Bickle, from the start gave me the confidence I needed to make the right choice on the next direction in my career path. Life is already stressful, and adding the challenges in finding a new job can be overwhelming with anxiety. Michael Bickle never pressured me into doing anything I was not certain about. He was with me every step of the way. In doing so, I wasn't left with uncertainty.
To the next journey,
Roy  D.

I would like to say a big thank you to Michael Bickle for helping me to find the right concept that works for me and my lifestyle.

After working for the same company for 36 years I had peace in my heart that this was the right move for me. I'm on my second week and so far so good. Also he was a huge help during the interview process and helped me via texts each step of the way. Thank you Michael for your help and dedication which led me to a great career opportunity.

Michael was very attentive in expediting my hiring process.

He did a good job putting me in touch with the necessary people and being a bridge to make sure I had materials needed for my interviews. He would text me reminders of my interview times and offered his help constantly. Maddie Guzman

Michael worked hard for me.

Michael Bickle reached out to me and came across my resume on Indeed.  He helped assist me with my new job and was very enthusiastic and worked hard for me.  I can honestly say I would most likely still be on the job hunt if it were not for him. I can now say I'm a proud manager at a great company and I have Michael to thank for that.
Thank you,
Chelsea Cooper

Michael was always available to help!

I would like to say that while I was working with Michael Bickle he was constantly attentive and truly helpful with every step of the hiring process. He arranged the interview, improved my resume, and gave me so much material for being successful during the hiring process. He was always available to answer all of my questions and to calm my nerves. He even helped to negotiate my salary for after my training is completed. I am truly grateful for his help and I wish him every success throughout the course of his career. I will definitely reach out to Michael Bickle and/or Patrice and Associates if I ever need help with my career again.   Thank you, Denae Rebecca
