Ira has helped our team recruit exceptional individuals for multiple positions within an interactive advertising agency.

Dan Alpert

As a Recruiter, Ira has proven himself to be dependable and reliable, even while working remotely in Florida. My office is based in NY and I found Ira’s method of constant communication, follow-up and detail very much appreciated when it can be so easy to lapse while working from different offices.

The positions Ira focused on were in Sales, Account Management and Marketing within the Digital Media space and I can say that Ira has not only effectively utilized the resources provided to him, he continually sought out and proposed additional resources to further penetrate this ever so competitive candidate landscape. If it were not for budget constraints, I would hire Ira FT as he is an excellent Talent Acquisition Strategist who will build a strong pipeline of candidates for both current and future needs.
