Top qualities: Great Results, Personable, Good Value “I used 3 contingency recruiters plus our in-house HR to come up with an SVP of Engineering for our digital media company. Kiki placed the winning candidate with the lowest bid price of any recruiter. She was also very gracious about our excluding candidates we found ourselves - there were 2 instances where we contacted candidates or they contacted us from our ads just before she did, and she stepped aside without question. Great deal, great service, very professional! We are on week 7 with our new hire and couldn't be happier!”
