Polly works with a smile in her voice. She is very personable without being a “pushy” recruiter. Her likeable nature results in an attraction to want to work with her or for her. She’s fair in her dealings, very results oriented, dependable with follow-throughs, and easy to communicate with.

Polly made me feel very comfortable and relaxed when I first interviewed with her. This helped to open the lines of communication from the start and to also share information about my personal as well as professional interests and skillsets. With this information, she was able to place me in an open contract position that was right for long-term success for both me and the hiring company, something I continue to be grateful for 16 years later.

She regularly checked in on me during my tenure in my contract position. She listened to the status of my projects, the challenges I faced, and asked about my job satisfaction on a regular and consistent basis. She also remained in touch with the hiring manager to ensure smooth sailing from both sides, gently providing input or feedback when necessary.

After nearly three years of consulting employment under Polly, I was offered a full-time position with the employing company. Polly worked with me through a harmonious transition and, although I am no longer working for Polly, she has remained in touch with me throughout the years. I still drink my morning coffee out of the beautiful coffee mugs she gave to me and my husband as a wedding gift nearly 15 years ago when I was contracting for her.

Would I choose to work with Polly again? Absolutely! If I return to consulting, I will contact Polly first and would highly recommend other contractors to do the same.

During a broad thirty-year technology career, from Junior Analyst to CIO, I’ve worked with many recruiters, both as a candidate and a customer. While there are many ‘headhunters’ working in the market, Polly is both a recruiter and a partner. The difference in skill set and approach is vast.

What sets Polly apart from the others who are looking to merely fill an org chart box and their wallet, Polly is a great listener. Checking off the technology skill set to match a job requirement is easy. Understanding how a candidate would ‘fit’ the culture of a team is much more challenging. Polly understood that focusing only on short term placements would create long term business problems, both for her and her clients.

I met Polly when she placed me at a large financial company. After that position I moved to a medium size bank as the CIO and utilized her skills for over 15 years because I knew she would not send a candidate who wouldn’t meet my high standards for personal character, chemistry and curiosity. Finding a technologist is easy. Finding one who wants to solve business problems with technology and be part of a team is much different. Polly understood the latter.

Although I am semi-retired now, if I did return to the work world I would call Polly first to reengage a long term relationship and friendship.
