Hezekiah is a true professional in every sense of the word.I'm very excited to get started with my new career. From the very beginning when he contacted me there has been absolutely no gaps in communication. Hezekiah matched me with an opportunity that is a true fit for my skill set. I submitted my resume to him and he completely revamped it, highlighting my strengths. This translated into the opportunity I have now been afforded. He ensured that I received tips on interviewing and we even spoke just hours prior to my initial interview. He has consistently reached out to the HR representative to ensure that I was informed of their thought process and relayed information to them as to my thoughts as well. Truly, I could not have asked for a better recruiter. As I type this I am still amazed at how seamless Hezekiah made the entire process. There would be zero hesitation in requesting his services again, I'd do it in a heartbeat without second guessing. He's a superstar in my humble opinion and deserves all the best that Patrice & Associates has to offer. Thank you for having him on the team, he's going to change plenty of people's lives. He should be proud to know that.Very Respectfully,Keith A. EllisHezekiah is a true professional in every sense of the word
Very nice and great to work with.He was very helpful in the job search. He was not too pushy, which was a very good thing, considering I went on vacation. Thank you.Nick BurtnerVery nice and great to work with
David took a personal interest in me.My relationship with David Israel began in early May/late April. I use the term “relationship” because from the get go and through our conversations he began putting together a list of clients that would fit my skill set. By reworking my resume, he made me more attractive to the possible opportunities (My resume was, needless to say, a hot mess), and got me into the room to talk to multiple employers where I could sell myself on those said skills. Because of David, I was afforded two offers from companies so I could weigh the pros & cons, and make a choice that best suits myself, and my family. The end result is I begin my new job next week! My man David is not only an excellent recruiter, but truly a good man who will take a more personal approach to make sure you get a chance to make that first impression. My only regret? I will miss our conversations getting to know him better, and sharing in our life experiences.Warmest Regards,Kevin MobleyDavid took a personal interest in me
