"I have known and worked with Melissa for years and can tell you she is a no-nonsense, get the job done WELL recruiter. She takes her assignments very seriously, immerses herself in the organization and will dedicate herself to a great outcome. I know you'll enjoy getting to know her."
Maggie O. - Executive Vice President, Business Development & Marketing
"Melissa is terrific to work with. As a candidate, it was apparent that she had vetted me carefully to ensure there was a good fit in terms of qualifications and personality. Melissa did a great job preparing me for the process and gathering feedback along the way. She is well connected, highly professional and a pleasure to work with. I would gladly do so again as a candidate or hiring manager and recommend her enthusiastically."
Brian C. - Chief Financial Officer
"I am so pleased to be able to offer a recommendation for Melissa. Ask anyone who has had the fortune to work with or even around Melissa and you will hear she is one of the sharpest individuals they've ever met. I am convinced she can do - and do it exceptionally well - anything she chooses. But she is certainly known for her ability to identify, assess and place talent. This is a skill that many of us learn to do as part of our HR repertoire, but what Melissa has is something more innate that takes her abilities in this area to a totally different category. Aside from her talent acquisition skills, she is an incredibly well rounded HR and business professional. She has exceptional organizational agility, her wit is unmatched, and her integrity is second to none. Not only is she well versed in the craft of all things HR, she is someone that I simply enjoy to be around -- and you can't ask for more than that."
Suzanna G. - Human Resources Leader
"Melissa is by far w/in the top 10 business professionals I've ever had the experience of working with--she understands large corporate HR at the most senior level, as well as small bleeding edge companies and how to attract people to those companies."
Brian M. - President @ Human Capital Management
"Melissa brings a unique blend of passion for and commitment to her profession combined with a contagious sense of humor and that enables her to develop strong working relationships throughout an organization. She's a "stand-out" when it comes to identifying and selecting talent, and personally recruited and developed a talented team of new HR generalists into the US while at IVGN. She has parlayed her expertise into a successful executive search career that allows her to now share her talents with many organizations."
Laurel M. - Vice President, Human Resources @ Hewlett Packard
"Melissa was my group's HR Generalist while at Peregrine Systems and I worked closely with her on a number of initiatives to move my group, our capabilities and our segment (including recruiting) of the company forward. In my all of my years in managing teams and working with HR, I can honestly say that Melissa's knowledge, creativity (in an area that many may not view as a creative area of a company), and support were top rate. Melissa is focused on results in everything she does. If given the opportunity to work with her, you will understand this within 5 minutes of talking to her. Whether Melissa decides to continue as a sole proprietor or desires to come back into the corporate structure, I strongly recommend Melissa as an A+ performer, manager and business partner."
