I am an experienced remote recruiter but will visit client sites on an as needed basis.

I've known Pete Mitchell for more than 12 years. I was Pete's immendiate supervisor at IndyMac Bank and I recruited him to join the talent acquisition team at Fremont Investment & Loan, too.

Pete is an outstanding recruiter and team player. He is intelligent, creative, resourceful and reliable. Pete has outstanding communication skills, a genuine "drive for results" and the utmost integrity. Pete's clients loved working with him. They often went out of their way to tell me how valuable he was to their success.

If I had another opportunity to engage Pete, I wouldn't hesitate a second. He would be a highly valuable addition to any recruiting team.
