WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Jennifer T.

Director of HR & Operations

Brian is one of the best recruiters I've ever worked with! He really takes the time to get to know his clients and their business needs and creates and maintains great relationships with them. I have worked with him on placing a few high level candidates and he always does his research and presents the best candidates! If Brian is presenting them, they must be great! Would definitely recommend Brian to anyone looking for amazing top quality recruiting assistance. He consistently delivers and he's great to work with!

Bar C. 

Assistant Vice President

Mark  was a pleasure to work with -- communicative, attentive and kind. He took the time to get to know me, my experience and what I was looking for prior to presenting me with options. Mark also prepared me for the interview process and ensured all of my questions were answered ahead of time. I’d recommend Mark to any PR professional looking for guidance in making his or her next career move.

Aracely G.

PR Account Executive

Working with Shanna during my job search was such a pleasant experience. From the start, Shanna made me feel at ease during a time that can be very stressful. She is friendly, easy to talk to, and super supportive. I appreciated her level of communication - from presenting opportunities that aligned with my interests, to keeping me updated with progress on all fronts. Thank you, Shanna!

Kayla D.

Account Executive

I was laid off from my previous job a couple months ago and Brian worked so hard to help connect me with an amazing agency that fit everything I was looking for in my next role. He was super responsive, honest and I felt like he was on my side the whole time. I can not recommend him enough for anyone looking to take the next step in their careers!

Kelly B.

PR Professional

Shanna was very helpful and communicative during my job search, keeping me informed every step of the way. She took the time to get to know not only my professional goals but my personality as well to find the best fit for me. I really appreciated her transparency and friendliness during the usually stressful job search period!

Johanna A.

Senior Account Executive

It's not often that after one phone conversation with someone, they can see something in you that you can't even see. That's what happened when I worked with Brian during my search for my next step in my public relations career. Apprehensive to switch gears and naturally resistant to change, Brian saw the potential in me that I was afraid to see and encouraged me to take a chance at a job I really wanted but wasn't sure I deserved. He advocated for my goals and desires with the company and ultimately landed me in the position I wanted. After we signed on the dotted line, Brian continued to support me and I know if I reached out to him with a question today - he would be right there to answer with my best interest at heart. Fast forward five months later, I'm thrilled to be where I am and wouldn't be here without Brian's advisement. I'd recommend him to anyone!

Jay T.

Account Supervisor

Brian was awesome! So helpful on walking my through each opportunity and finding openings that fit my background and passion. Would HIGHLY recommend for any employees/job hopefuls to connect with him!

Keaton M.

Account Executive

Brian found me via LinkedIn. I had never worked with a recruiter before and was honestly skeptical about the process. But something about Brian stood out. His relaxed demeanor made me feel comfortable immediately, and it soon became apparent that he had my best interest at heart. We talked for a long time about what my short and long term goals were -- everything from company culture and size to client lists to opportunities for advancement. When I told Brian something didn't feel like a good fit, he was receptive and incorporated the feedback into his next proposal. The end result was a perfect match. My first interview with what would become my next job lasted 4.5 hours! It was a great fit all the way around, and that was only possible become of Brian's commitment to satisfying not only my personal needs, but also the needs of the company. He was the ultimate advocate for both parties and a fantastic listener. Although I don't anticipate being on another job search for a very long time, should the need arise I would absolutely use Brian again.

Richard G.

Beauty PR Professional

During the recruiting process, Brian was super attentive to my needs and what I was looking for in my career — in my next role & from my next company. I could tell his main concern lied in matching me with the right fit and not just placing me somewhere blindly. He didn’t want me to settle. In the end, he found me an awesome company and I’m in a position where I’m challenged, get to work with a great group of people and there’s room to grow. In the end, I am super happy with the outcome of the recruiting process working with Brian and definitely recommend him. 

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Katie T. 

Digital Sr. Account Executive

From the start, Brian was attentive, actively listened to what I was looking for in my next move, and align my strengths to a potential position (which eventually led to accepting an offer)! Throughout the interview process he assisted with prep, answered any questions and was extremely communicative. On my way to one interview, my train was late and I emailed him—he immediately called me to get the details and let the office know. Took the stress away of being a few minutes late! My experience was phenomenal and I’d definitely recommend Brian!

 Cory S.

Director of Digital/Social

I started speaking with Brian more than a year ago when I was living abroad and looking to move back to the states. He assured me that it might take time, but he wanted to ensure that whatever he put in front of me was 100% the right fit - and it was. He took the time to get to know not only my professional background - but also my personality and what type of culture i was looking for in my next move. He's been an incredible ally and cheerleader during my recent interview process and helped me seal the deal with an amazing job. I wholeheartedly recommend Brian and will be passing his name to all my friends.

Erick E.

Digital Account Supervisor

Brian was extremely helpful and strategic in helping me find a job/career I love. I was looking for a slight change in industries I was working in and he was a true partner every step of the way.

Brian was phenomenal to work with in my job hunt. He found two great opportunities that fit my skill set and preferred work environment. He then guided me through every stage of the process with clear communication and fast results. I dealt with multiple recruiters, but Brian was by far the most in-tune with what I wanted and best equipped to help me achieve it. I hope to remain at my agency long term, but if I end up seeking new opportunities, he is the first person I will contact.

Searching for a new job in New York is usually as grueling as searching for a new apartment, but Brian made the whole process feel effortless. It took him only a brief conversation with me to identify an opportunity that was such a good fit I was offered the position after only one interview.

Brian is by far the most diligent, honest and considerate recruiter I have ever worked with. I would highly recommend him to anyone I know

Brian is exceptional as a recruiter, working closely with candidates to get a sense of his/her professional and personal goals. I first met Brian when he contacted me about a potential job opportunity. Throughout the initial interaction, Brian treated me like he was truly 'in my corner' seeking to figure out not only whether I was right for the job but that the position would be a good fit for my wants and needs. As the interview process progressed, I felt that I had a strong advocate in my corner, a coach who was able to advise me on how to put my best foot forward. With Brian's help, I ended up nailing the interview and landing the job. I am so thrilled to start this job and I owe it all to Brian!
