“Joshua was great to work with. He made sure my team and I were aware of exactly what was going on in the recruiting process and even provided guidance and advisement on how to structure and present the best offer to candidates. I especially liked the fact that he communicated very regularly with me and I never had to wonder where we were at any phase of the process. He listened intently to our descriptions of the ideal candidate and exceeded our expectations in presenting us with viable options to fill our position. I am more than pleased with the outcome of working with Josh and look forward to working with him on future projects.”
