  • Karen Horton was a massive help for me during my recent job search!

    I had interviewed with Karen a couple years prior for a job I didn't get. Fast forward two years and I was having difficulty looking for a new opportunity. Karen personally reached out to me, even after two years remembering my name, my story, and exactly what kind of career I was looking for. Karen is incredibly friendly and extremely helpful! She offered to review my interviews after every step of the application process, giving me tips or simply giving me positive encouragement. I would recommend her to anyone looking for help with a career change!

  • If you are looking for the right result, David Hotovy is your choice!

    Recruiting Pro is one way I would describe David Hotovy.  From beginning to end, David has a knack of building a relationship based on understanding his client's needs and goals.  He is personable and has a way about him that really made me feel like he cared about my career ambitions.  He knows the industry and presents himself as a Career Coach that truly has the client first.  David was always prompt with updates and even if there was nothing new to report, he would check in.  Looking for that next career can be a lonely space at times and with David I always felt that I was never in this by myself.  If you are looking for the right result, David is your choice.
    Thank you!
