    Darryl Jackson went above and beyond to find me the right opportunity!

    Mr. Jackson is a skilled professional who will make sure you have the tools necessary to succeed, from editing my resume, sending information about the job, and going over key interview questions.  He was always available to answer any questions and was sure to follow up with me to make sure that I was prepared and ready for my interviews. Without Mr. Jackson's help, I doubt I could have found such a good opportunity in such a short amount of time.  I have shared Mr. Jackson's information with current and former colleagues so that they too may have his resources and expertise.

    Thank you Mr. Jackson and Patrice & Associates.


    Best regards,

    Darryl Jackson makes you his priority! 

    I would say that Darryl Jackson was very professional and helped me in all aspects of my job search.  Darryl took my resume and made it more attractive and appealing, he was also very attentive to my needs and what my expectations were.  What I feel was a key part of the success in our relationship was the constant communication on his part.  Darryl makes it his business to know his client and always speaks to you in a positive manner.  He tries to make you see the good aspects of each individual employer.  In the future if I would need to seek other employment I truly believe I would look for his availability.

    Darryl is phenomenal as a recruiter, but I also use him as a resource and mentor for my career

    I have been in the restaurant industry for over 20 years and have met and worked with a number of recruiters over those years. Darryl is by far the best recruiter I have ever worked with. He has a level of professionalism that is unmatched. In every interview and every step of the way through my hiring process, I was fully prepared thanks to Darryl. He was available to answer all questions, prepare me for the process and build my confidence during it. I am happy to announce that I have accepted a dream position that would have not been possible without the help of Darryl. The preparation and professionalism as I mentioned is unmatched by any recruiter I’ve ever worked with but the thing that separates Darryl as the best in the industry is his integrity. He genuinely wanted the best position for me as a client and it never felt as if he was trying to sell me a position. He was simply trying to do what was best for my career and my development. I have put him in touch with a number of my peers in this industry because I believe he will always do the right thing and put any person he works with in a position to succeed. Darryl gave me an opportunity to get offered and accept a position that is life changing for myself and my family. I would recommend any manager in our industry, at any level, to work with Darryl.
