Board of excellence

We pride ourselves on our service and we’re thrilled when clients and candidates share their experiences about us.
  • "I've been talking your services up over here and so there may be a few colleagues of mine looking to sign up (with your firm). I think you guys are awesome so... I had to tell my friends.”

    Micah, Candidate
  • “I think you’ve done a very good job finding candidates. This isn’t an easy position to recruit for.”

    Scott, Client
  • “Your team really impressed me with how they not only went full throttle, but I’m screening every candidate because they’re all that good!”

    Micah, Client
  • “I just wanted to say thanks for your help in this process. I’ve had a few recruiting companies working with me, and you are the only one who has taken the time to communicate with me."

    Levi, Candidate
  • “I wanted to thank you for your help in the recruiting process. I’ve been increasingly impressed by the amount of time and consideration that professionals such as yourself at Simply Biotech have taken in connecting job seekers with potential employers. Although it may simply be your job, the work you’ve done so far has appeared to be above and beyond what I could have possibly expected. Thank you so much.”

  • You are the best! I have never had any recruiters provide such useful information before sending someone on an interview!

    Srinivas, Candidate
  • “TalentZok has been so great to work with on the FT side (my favorite agency partner!) so I do look forward to working with you on the temp side as well. Thank you!”

  • “I just wanted to say thank you! I have worked with numerous recruiters, and none of them have ever put in the extent of effort and resilience you have for my sake. You have had constant contact, kept me in the loop since day one, pushed my resume and I know that you truly have my best interest at heart. You have been beyond marvelous and I never want to work with another recruitment firm again... I know that I’m in good hands with you”

    Stacy, candidate
  • “All my interactions with you have been professional and friendly.  Very enjoyable – thank you!”

  • “Thank you so much for the email and, more so, for being such an advocate. It's apparent to me that you are not only very good at your job, but that you also enjoy it.”

  • “As always, thank you for your extraordinary efforts”
