Quotes from Clients 

Excerpts from letters of reference or acknowledgments of a job well done.


"I have volunteered to write this letter because I'm extremely satisfied with the work that Carole Smolizer, through her company Marketing Consultants, Inc., has performed for us.  Carole has recruited the majority of professionals in our Promotions Department.  Her work has reinvigorated the department and put it on the road to profitability."

"Just as important as the performance is Carole's ability to obtain candidates, and only those candidates, that meet our criteria.  She listens and does not take up our time with marginal candidates.  Carole has always been very tenacious in finding candidates and never gives up on an assignment."

"I highly recommend Carole to any company that is looking for top candidates, especially for those hard to fill positions.  I feel that she does her best and that is exceptional."

"During my three years that we have worked together, I have come to look upon you as my first and only choice, when I need professional search assistance to fill needs in our marketing area..."

"In particular, I appreciate your candor...when you do accept a new assignment from me I know I can rely on it receiving your due attention."

"I also appreciate your efforts to understand not only the tangible aspects of the job to be filled, even more important, your efforts to understand my emphasis on the intangibles that I seek in candidates and working just as hard to identify a match for those criteria before you submit a candidate to me."
