Ken Welch was attentive and enthusiastic from our first conversation. I wasn’t really sure when I listened to his voicemail where he was from. When returning the call I was hesitant for taking up his time I was not really interested at the moment for a career change. As we had each conversation he was very professional, listened clearly and engaged in conversation, coaching me each step of the way. As he explained what job I was applying to I suddenly felt I must see this through. Ken was there to guide me and was quick to move along the process and supportive. Ken felt like a friend. Ken made me feel like maybe a change is what I needed. Ken believed in me when I wasn’t feeling so confident in myself. As I begin my new journey that all started with the help of Ken I am  truly excited . I am on my own now, but I thank him for what could be the best change for me and he is an asset to your team. Thank You.”

“I worked with Scott Jacobson of Patrice &  Associates. I must say the process was flawless and executed easy.  I love how he prepares you and gives you the confidence to get out there,  be it a career change, leaving a company for another, or just getting out there.  Scott stayed connected and resourceful. I would recommend him and Patrice and Associates. I felt like I told of my interests and he sought and found,  I can’t express anymore how easy it was. I’ve already passed his info on to past or current colleagues that may be looking or thinking of a career or job change but don’t know where to start as it is a scary or overwhelming process,  especially if you already work 50 hours plus a week,  how do you find the time? But with the support of Patrice and Associates and Scott, you have the time. Thank you! “

Helen Nourai called me after business hours on a Thursday afternoon. After a few minutes of talking, she said she knew someone I had to meet. Friday morning, Helen called and asked if I was available for a Saturday interview (Which she wanted me to call her immediately after). I got my written offer on Monday, for my asking salary. Helen did not set me up on a bunch of interviews with companies that I wasn’t suited for and jobs I didn’t want. Helen put me with a company and concept that fit my personality and desire to expand upon my prior experience and future goals. If you want someone who gets up early, works on weekends and follows up, you cannot do better than Helen.”

“Matt Lopez made me feel at ease and he made me believe that he had  my best interest at heart.  He kept me posted with every news he received, when to expect a call form the company, he gave me details of what is expected of the position and background of the company that I’m applying to.  

Matt not only wanted me to get the position, he also wanted to make sure that it was the right fit for both me and the company. He shows his passion and drive for the right candidate for both parties.  

He was always there to answer any questions and always will to go above and beyond to get any information necessary so you as a candidate can be prepared.  

I can say dealing with Matt Lopez was one of the best decisions I’ve made and would highly recommend him to any of my closest friends, family and colleagues .  I’m so confident in Matt and what he does, I’ve asked my wife and my assistant to reach out to him to seek his help in finding them their next opportunity.”

“Vicki Marshall swiftly moved through the process to obtain a good snapshot of what my needs were and recommended specific companies that shared my passion and core values as well – evidence that she truly cares and not about just finding the first available position to place me in.  She coordinated all that was needed to prepare me through a successful screening, post screening, Skype interviews, and in-person interviews.  Her professionalism, organization and special attention to details while treating me with dignity and respect and not like just another job seeker has made my experience through seeking employment stress free.  Thank you Vicki for aligning me with a company to which I look forward to a long and prosperous relationship.  You are a true Professional.”

    It was a pleasure working with Eric Coultoff
  • Helen Nourai THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!!

    After being COVID laid off in 2020; I spent the next year floundering, and looking for work. I had my resume up on all the different sites, and applied to anything that was even close to a good fit. No luck, and very few calls or email responses. Until one day out of nowhere Helen contacted me. Helen was extremely personable, positive, and prepared. After speaking for some time, completing the initial introductions, and basic information. Helen already had a position in mind for me. I sent her all of my relevant documents, and she worked her magic. Just a couple days later she emailed back my beautifully reworked resume, and double checked that I was ready for her to submit to potential employers. Then things went very fast! The next day on a Tuesday I had 2 phone interviews. Then Thursday another interview with the Director. Helen kept in touch every step of the way; calling even when I had forgotten to keep her posted. Then the General Manager contacted me on a Saturday followed by the VP!! Less than a week after Helen had submitted me I had completed the interview process, and was waiting on an offer pending reference & background checks. Helen, again was in amazing communication with me. Discussing my needs from the offer to ensure that when the offer was made; it included everything I wanted. It worked out exactly like that too! In the midst of the whirlwind offer that was exactly what I wanted (something I've never experienced before), and all the different company leaders reaching out to me. Helen was right there with me too. Checking in, sharing in my excitement, and giving me all her congratulations. Again, I had never experienced a hiring process with this much of a personal touch before ever! Definitely never one that was this smooth, and fast. If the Company went a day not talking to me, Helen was on it and reaching out to push the process forward.
    13 months of the unconscionable COVID under employment; with all the stress, worry, and insecurity, doing anything and everything to scrape together as many dollars as possible, to finally land a dream position that is a perfect fit, in my ideal location, industry, and salary. It is all still so unbelievable, and I know Helen was more than a major player. She was the key! The difference maker! I cannot express my level of gratitude for her help, and perseverance. Helen is the most gifted recruiter I have ever interacted with, and should I ever be looking for work, Helen will absolutely be my first call.
    Much Gratitude,
    Ben Whetstone
    Helen Nourai THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!!

  • I’m still in awe of Gary Kinsinger's abilities!

    It has been such an honor to work with Patrice & Associates, but more specifically with Gary Kinsinger. I’ve worked with recruiters in the past, however none as detail oriented and diligent as Mr. Kinsinger. From the moment he initially reached out to me, all the way to my first day in my new position, Gary was and is still very present in making sure my comfort and needs are met. I truly can’t put into words how beyond grateful I am to have worked with Gary. And with no doubt in my mind would recommend his services to anyone in the market. Gary matched me with the role of my dreams in just one and a half weeks. Thank you so much, Gary Kinsinger!
    Best,
