It is truly my distinct pleasure to recommend Bill. I had the privilege of working with him on both sides of the recruiting platform. A couple of times as a candidate and also as an employer/colleague. I was first actually recruited directly by Bill for a recruitment related position years in ago. At that time, I just wasn’t in the situation to make a move. Regardless of my desire at the time, it seemed as though Bill didn’t mind. He still continued to reach out to me throughout the year. He was very professional and friendly each and every time.

He is all about building relationships, not just placing a warm body. As time went on, sure enough, I reached back out to him. I had to! Who else would I have wanted to be more loyal to as a recruiter, than the one recruiter that always checked in on me and never made me feel bad if I couldn’t take his opportunity!? He was always honest with me, open and forthcoming about any details I wanted from him about his clients. There were no secrets! It was so refreshing. The timing wasn’t right this time either, when I accepted another position. I never forgot about him.

Now, I have been able to ask him if he has any candidates for me! He is not about putting a person in the wrong job, just to make a commission. Nor, is he into sending his clients a bunch of resumes or even just one resume of someone he doesn’t truly know. He knows everything about his candidates and his clients! He is simply one of a kind! I am a big fan!
