What Clients Say About Patrice & Associates

  • testimonial image
    Hello my name is Ladidrea Richmond I was recruited by Mike Buterbaugh Jan.30,2019. Mike wasn’t my first recruiter I had two prior to him, each recruiter sent me on one job interview.  I didn’t get the jobs and they told me that there wasn’t anything else that they could do for me but Mike was different from the first time we talked I felt that he wanted me to have a great job. He was full of energy and excitement. Mike talked to me as though we were friends for years he help me reconstruct my resume and gave me great pointers for my interviews, he always coached me before an interview and was interested in what happened afterward. Although I didn’t get the  jobs Mike sent me on, he stayed in contact with me, he encouraged me not to give up and that he wasn’t going to leave me until he got me a great job. He believed in me when I started to doubt myself, he encouraged me to keep my head up and to reach for the stars and he always reassured me that he would be there for me. Mike emailed me mid March with a job opening for Fuddruckers in Schaumburg I was kind of reluctant but Mike told me to go on the interview and do what I always do and things will work out, well again with Mike’s great encouragement I went on the interview and l got the job I start my first day of training tomorrow. I am forever grateful for Mike’s integrity his honesty his perseverance and his commitment to his clients I will never forget the relationship that we built and I’ll take everything he taught me into my new career. Thanks Mike for being such an awesome person. I will always remember you. "He believed in me when I started to doubt myself"

    Patrice & Associates Recruitment Specialists Coach With Care!

    To all who are looking for a change in their career, not just looking for a “job,” but for a life altering experience, I highly recommend working with Jeannie Boland from Patrice & Associates Recruiting Specialists.  I went in one person and came out the other side a totally different professional with the job of a lifetime.

    Jeannie’s time, care, encouragement and enthusiasm helped me from A to Z through the entire process.  From analyzing my past career, resume building and then matching me to employers, she was with me in my corner all the way.

    Jeannie is by far the most amazing recruiter I have ever seen.  I was so hesitant at first, but right away she figured out who I was and where I could be.   Hypothetically, if I didn’t get the job, I would have still been 100% happy because Jeannie got me the opportunity.  I couldn’t have done it without her.

    Without hyperbole, Jeannie is the absolute best.  I can’t sing her and her team’s praises enough.

    Recruitment Coaches Present New Possibilities!

    Benji Ellis was of utmost help!  He was able to listen to my needs and came up with suggestions and we went back and forth a few times. Ultimately, he ended up knowing a little more about what i needed than myself. We had talked over different projects and when he approached me with this new venture, I was not very interested to begin with, he insisted I should check it out, he was sure I would like it. So I gave it a try and after that it's all history.  I loved the concept and the team i would be working with.
    Benji was able to see things I couldn't.
    He kept great two way communication throughout the entire process making sure I knew every step of the way.
    He is fun, friendly and knowledgeable. After a month now in my new career, I'm having fun and loving this new experience.
