Once you work with Melissa, she's always on the watch for positions that might be a good match. She's great at really uncovering what you're looking for and helping point you in the right direction to achieve it. She contacted me about a position recently. It wasn't even on my radar, but she has a gift for connecting people and seeing the possibilities. I'm now in the position, loving it and enjoying a better work-life balance. She's thoughtful, responsive and a joy to work with. I would recommend her 100%!

Melissa was extremely helpful, counseling me on my career path and the interviewing process. She taught me what to expect and she was spot on. She guided me to the best websites to look for opportunities, reviewed my resume and gave me useful feedback and gave me goals and expectations regarding how many resumes to send and how many call backs to expect. She really set my mind at ease and helped me land my dream job! Thank you, Melissa!
