    Bruce was of great help from the beginning, very committed, professional and provided genuine care.  I felt like I was talking to someone I knew from before even though it was the first time we spoke.

    Here's to you Bruce! 

    I started my job hunt while still living in St. Louis Missouri.  I looked into every kind of job available with little to no luck finding a job that would meet my family needs.  That's where Bruce Leininger came in.  During my first conversation with Bruce we discussed the possibility of staying in the food industry, which wasn't the fondest concept at the time. During the following week we spoke several more times and Bruce was able to restore some of my confidence and we set out on this adventure together.  I cannot begin to tell you how vital Bruce was to not only looking for opportunities on the other side of the country, but to boosting my own self esteem as well.  Shortly after starting this adventure, Bruce found a very unique opportunity for me that not only fit all of the requirements I needed for my family life but one that was geared towards my personal interest as well!  Long story short, I now live right outside of Seattle Washington and Monday I start a job that I am more excited about than any job I have ever had!  Bruce saw me for who I am and polished me the same way you would polish a diamond.  I can't say that I think I would have been this successful without Bruce and the personal connection he made with me.  Bruce helped me change my life and put my family on track for financial success.  I could never thank him enough. Plus I made a friend in the process.     Thank you! William Adams Here's to you Bruce!

    I cannot say enough about Bruce.

    I have been working with recruiters for over 20 years and I can say with out a doubt that Bruce Leininger with Patrice & Associates is the best recruiter that I have worked with. From the start he was only concerned with matching me with the best job possible.  He listened to my needs both financially and professionally.  Bruce was able to help me streamline my resume, he helped with my interviewing skills and helped sell my work experience to prospective employers. Bruce guided me through the entire hiring process and even offered his assistance for the next several months with the transition from one job to the next.     Thanks, Mazen Deifallah I cannot say enough about Bruce.
