I contacted Wendy Cohen for her expert help in recruiting a part time design assistant for GOGO design group. The process was smooth and painless and was complete within a couple weeks. An expert at skill, character and personality assessment, Wendy found the perfect fit assistant after efficiently screening resumes and pre-interviewing a number of candidates for me. Her follow through was stellar as well, as she provided all of the support documents for hiring a new employee. I am grateful for Wendy’s expertise and support and will definitely turn to her again once GOGO is ready to grow its staff.
