”... Francie Louie represented an employer who embodied more of what I stood for, offered the work environment that I really yearned for, and offered better compensation than the other firms I was evaluating... After more than two months in my new employment at Valley Emergency Physicians, I have found my contributions as a recruiter to be valued and celebrated, and I keep in contact with Francie if only to say thank you for her perseverance and invaluable professionalism.”

”You are a recruiting guru. I am amazed by your powers to gather all of the necessary background for the position, recruit candidates out of the right organizations, and end up with the ultimate hire for the position. In addition, you are versatile enough to find extremely difficult technical individuals as well as administrative, sales and executive candidates. And you do it over and over again. I’d hire you back in a minute.”

After working in Federal law enforcement for almost 30 years, I had a little anxiety in looking for a new job.
