“As a candidate, Robin was very empathetic towards my career goals and aspirations and we formed a strong bond based on mutual trust and honesty. Aside from her professional qualities, Robin is understanding, smart and has a keen sense of humor, and I will always be grateful to her for her support. I have since had an opportunity to work with Robin on the other side as a partner in hiring, and Robin builds that same relationship with her clients. She is able to fully understand our business needs and help us translate what we need into the type of candidate profile that we should pursue, and has proved effective at showing us candidates that possess our chosen profile. Robin is competent and experienced at what she does which allows us to rely upon her opinion, and I can speak for others on our leadership team when I say that she has been instrumental in our success.”
