Your approach was well thought out in learning about Doceo along with your interest to fully understand our company culture in order to invite the best possible matches to the table.  

After working with you for several months, I have been impressed with your level of detail, your effectiveness in presenting top notch employee prospects, your timely follow up and finally your role in helping to close the candidates. It has been a pleasure to work with you and I look forward to building on our partnership in the future."

"Thank you for your time, talent, and enthusiasm surrounding the hiring of our associate attorney. Not only was the process an easy one, it was exceptionally informative and thorough. 


Understanding that finding an attorney that "checked all the boxes" we provided was a new endeavor for your team, you dove in, headfirst, and became familiar with both the industry and our firm-specific criteria. Your team quickly adjusted to our feedback, as we explored potential candidates, and we couldn't be happier with the end result. 


As we continue to grow, I fully anticipate utilizing The Carlisle Group to help us fast track the search and hiring process."
