What sets Patrice & Associates apart from the competition?

Technology advancements have improved almost every aspect of our lives, from instant access to information, consumers buying products with ease, and businesses connecting globally. It’s safe to say we live in a technology driven world. In many aspects, technology has improved the process of connecting great talent with companies looking to hire. However, in some cases, technology can be overused, and the art of a good conversation is lost.

We talk with so many great candidates who have applied for 100, 200, even 500 different jobs and they have rarely spoken to a human. It’s a daunting and frustrating process filling out all those applications, questionnaires, and forms, just to be met with little to no response. Many of our Patrice & Associates Franchisees viewed this business as an opportunity to be the recruiter they never had.

Our goal is to provide a step by step approach where we hold the candidates hand through the entire job search process. It’s not just about what’s on the resume, but also finding out what’s important to them. Is it better hours, better advancement opportunities, or maybe a better workplace environment? We take all these into consideration with our recruiting and coaching processes.

It’s not our goal to make a connection and then step back. When we on-board our hospitality clients, we get an in depth view of the job requirements, their culture, core values, and each step of the interview process. This foundation not only helps us to find the right candidate, but it also helps us guide and prepare them for each phone call or meeting. We prep them and role play the interviews so they show up feeling confident.

If you are thinking about taking the leap into a new career, consider talking with one of our very talented recruiters. They have been in the same position and will approach this partnership with empathy, active listening, and a true desire to get you into the perfect opportunity.

If you are a restaurant, hospitality, or food & beverage entity needing top talent, we take a very proactive approach to finding the right fit. We pick up the phone and speak to candidates who may be currently employed and attempt to get them excited about exploring something new. Our clients love that we bring in a whole new pool of candidates that wouldn’t have known about the opportunity if not for our proactive efforts.

We invite you to contact us to see what sets Patrice & Associates apart from the competition.

What Clients Say About Patrice & Associates

  • Allison Sullivan was amazing! 

    She found my resume online and reached out to me. I had been in the market looking for the right next step in my career for several months and had been receiving calls daily from different recruiters so I didn’t expect anything magical to occur overnight. Allison called me, we chatted quickly about my work experience and she advised me she thought I’d be perfect for a client she was working with….and literally the next day I got a call for an interview with the client. The day after the interview, I was immediately offered a position consulting on insurance claim management. Allison was checking in with me each step of the way and made the transition from unemployed to working at a career I’m excited about in no time at all! I cannot thank her and Patrice & Associates enough for all their help!

  • I am very thankful for Liz Costa.

    She was kind, informative, and very encouraging during the process of applying, interviewing, and finally accepting the position once it was offered to me. I have worked with several recruiters before and Liz was the most friendly and professional at the same time. She made me feel comfortable and also made me feel confident during the interview process. After only a few weeks, I now consider Liz a friend and would certainly recommend her to anyone who is in the looking in the labor market. Thank you Liz, I appreciate you as a person and a professional.

  • Jonathan Litt set me up for success!

    I am truly excited to start this new journey at this restaurant. I can honestly say I don't think I would have been able to pull this off without Jonathan Litt's help. He was more than professional but at the same time he was authentic and explained everything I needed to do to make things work. He definitely set me up for success. My confidence level wasn't what it used to be, but with his help he made me believe in myself. He encouraged me and believed in me as well. I will never forget his efforts. My appreciation for his work and dedication will always be remembered. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for allowing me to be a part of this process. I am forever grateful.

    Thank you again,

  • Rick Weaver is great!

    I love it at my new career and picture my future here. Rick was awesome in helping me choose where I need to be and how I had to get there. It took a lot of interviews and me turning jobs down because it wasn’t a fit for me. At my new career I’m in the right place!  

    Thank you,
