Working with Jillian and Patrice & Associates Hospitality Recruitment was an amazing experience. First of all, the work Jillian did on my resume before presenting me to the client was outstanding. I really feel that it presented me in the best light for the client (and it worked because I got the job!). I’ve worked with a lot of recruiting firms before and the level of service provided by Jillian was far and above the rest of the industry. Jillian was always available to talk any time of the day and really made me feel like she wasn’t just concerned with placing a candidate - she also cared about my happiness and well-being throughout the process.

“I want to thank Jillian Parker for reaching out to me with this amazing opportunity. I honestly think this was a perfect fit. I’ll be passing her info on to anyone who is looking for a management position. When Jillian reached out to me for a new manager position, it was like the window of opportunity flew open with hurricane force. I explained to her that I was being very picky about my next career move. She put me at ease, she put all the cards on the table, had immediate answers for my questions, and even did more research to help me make a decision. She knocked out any obstacles before the came and even gave me interview tips for every step. Her communication was impeccable and her guidance was even more so. Jillian made sure that I was taken care of monetarily by getting a nice increase with the transition. After two weeks at my new job I realize that this was a perfect fit and I owe it all to her. I want to thank her again for all that she’s done and I couldn’t be happier with my new career.” - Tanner Lahmers This was a perfect fit and I owe it all to Jillian in the Honolulu office!
