Why Perfect Search
“My background was working as an Executive Assistant to C-level suite Executives and then I was promoted to an H.R. Manager where I was responsible for staffing and training and development. I always had a love for finding the right person for a position for various roles in the company. Therefore, it was natural for me to make the decision to leave corporate America and start a staffing agency where I could help people find jobs full-time. After starting my company, I have never worked another day in my life as I am passionate about helping clients and candidates find a win/win match.”

Why Perfect Search
“I was first introduced to Perfect Search as a candidate. The team worked with me to find the perfect fit. Little did I know that they were the perfect fit all along. I joined the team without any recruiting experience, but I had an abundance of enthusiasm for learning about the recruiting world. Perfect Search is truly my perfect fit, and now I owe it to others to help find theirs!”
