I had the privilege of Mike Kunkle assisting in my search for a new career.He was excellent, professional and full of information, and very determined on carrying out his mission. Mike always started out our meetings by asking me how I was doing, how was the family, etc. Getting that personal touch made me believe and really feel that he cared about me and my family during this search. I would not trade my dealings with him for anyone else. Mike is very professional, courteous, and down to earth. Keeping me informed of specifics about myself that I would need to improve to enhance my job search. I really appreciate his touch and will definitely keep in contact with him to let him know that he has gained a friend for life.Sinerely,Walter PierceI had the privilege of Mike Kunkle assisting in my search for a new career.
