Robin Bland is an outstanding recruiter of amazing persistence!... Within days of meeting Robin, I had a stack of very qualified candidates on my desk - she clearly maintains a large database of candidates. She is also great in canvassing the marketplace to find new candidates.

Robin takes the time to understand our business and listen to our needs. She asks a ton of questions and consequently she understands what we need when talking to prospective candidates - she is screening so we do not have to!  In the past year, Robin has helped me fill several replacement and new positions. Finding suitable replacements can be challenging and I can say, one year removed, Robin found new employees who have exceeded our expectations. The talent pool that Robin as presented to me has been outstanding and we have been able to hire versatile staff. Having a more flexible staff allows our company to be nimble in responding to market opportunities and have better insights on competitors/territories. 

Robin is one of the best recruiters out there!!"

Stay safe and take care"

Hi Robin and Leigh Ann, You have no idea how much of a difference you make in the lives of your clients. The way you stepped up for me yesterday and won that position I wanted so desperately, will never be forgotten. For once in a LONG time, during this process, I have felt like I have someone in my corner and that is the best feeling ever. You two are Angels walking the Earth as far as I'm concerned."
