What Clients Say About Patrice & Associates

    Sally put me at ease from our first conversation.

    I have had the absolute pleasure of working with Sally Kennedy of Patrice & Associates to help me find the perfect position.  I have worked with recruiters in the past, but it was more about filling a position rather than matching up the candidate with the position.    It was clear that she wanted to know what I wanted as my next career move and as we talked, she knew that the job about which she was calling was what I wanted and what the company wanted in an employee.  She kept in constant contact so that I didn’t have to wonder where in the process I stood.  If you want a recruiter who truly cares, please contact Sally at Patrice & Associates.  I would recommend her to anyone I know!     Sincerely, Gabriella Sideleau Sally put me at ease from our first conversation

    Let me start by saying I have never worked with a recruiting firm before, and I was pleasantly surprised with how wonderful this opportunity was.

    Sally was courteous and professional from the beginning all the way to the end. She prepared for several interviews with the same company and showed true positivity whenever speaking to me.  She even followed up with me after I had already been hired, just to check in and wish me luck on my first day. I would highly recommend not only Sally Kennedy, but Patrice & Associates for those looking to get back in the hospitality industry after a devastating 13 months. Adrienne Koclanis   Sally was courteous and professional

    Sally Kennedy went above and beyond to find me the perfect fit for my next position.

    During the most difficult days the restaurant industry has seen, ever, Sally worked diligently to make sure my job search lasted 5 days. In these strange times, that’s unheard of. I can’t speak highly enough about Sally and the job she did for me. She is a rock star and I will be forever grateful.
