Recruiting Clients

“I entrusted Michael with a critical search and he exceeded my expectations. He is proactive, tireless, and has the best follow through I’ve ever seen from a recruiter. Most importantly, he conducts himself with integrity and treats all parties involved with consideration and care. He truly walks his talk.” – HR Director, Homebuilder

“I hired Michael to handle the staffing needs of one of our largest departments. Michael was trustworthy and reliable. He went out of his way to take the time to understand our needs and consistently met or exceeded our expectations with every placement. If given the opportunity I would hire him again. He was a pleasure to work with.” – Sr. Recruiter, Healthcare

“A+ and a job well done. We are very grateful to you for the time and attention you dedicated in finding our new HR Director. It’s refreshing to know that I have someone to rely on as we continue to expand in the future. Your approach to recruitment is so different from what we have experienced in the past. Thank you for your help Michael.” – VP of HR, Energy

“My experience in working with Michael was wonderful. His level of commitment to our search was evidenced by the caliber of talent that he found for our team. I am pleased to have worked with Michael on our most recent search and I look forward to working with him again in the future. Michael is the epitome of what an Executive Recruiter should be.” – National Manager, Financial

Recruiting Candidates

“I was not seeking a new job when Michael first called me as a prospective candidate. In fact, as an HR person, when he called, I tried to push him off to our recruiting team. However, he quickly explained the reason for his call. Michael was very professional in guiding me through his applicant process with his client. He was knowledgeable about what they needed and took the time to get to know me better as a candidate; not just what was listed on my resume, but what really drives me as a person and in my job. The key was to make the right placement for his client (and me), not just a warm body. As I moved through the process, I saw that the opportunity he was providing to me was a much better fit than the job I was in. His follow up was quick and thorough. As a candidate, I am extremely impressed with how Michael handles the recruiting process. I have referred others to him that are seeking jobs as well. Now, as an HR Manager, if I find myself in need of an outside recruiter, Michael will be the first person I will contact.” – HR Manager

“I would like to thank Michael for all his work. I am very pleased with the position I received. I am also recommending your company to anyone who is looking to make a career change. Michael was proactive in his approach regarding communication between my new company and me. Michael made sure all my questions were answered and that I was always prepared for each step. I highly recommend Michael and his company to anyone looking for a new position.” – Regional Manager

“I feel very lucky to have connected with Michael who successfully placed me into a new phase of my career. Having been with one firm for so long, I was hesitant at making a change even though I knew the timing was right for me. Michael really does his homework to understand both the needs of the company he is recruiting for and the candidate he is representing. He matches the two together very well. He not only clearly represented the type of job and company culture I was looking at so there were no surprises, but coached me in the difficult position of disengaging from the company I was leaving. Michael was there for me every step of the way, I couldn’t have asked for a better transition.” – Manager of Benefits & Compensation

Outplacement Clients

“After over 40 years in the workplace and never having to really search for a job, it was a big challenge for me to adequately sum up my job experience in a way that would sell especially in today’s difficult job environment. Michael, patiently worked with me, asked me probing questions about my background and followed up with my references to uncover additional strengths. The result was a dynamite resume that I was proud of and will enable me to find a job that fits my talent and meets my income expectations.” – Director, Aerospace

“Michael has been working with me to transition to new employment after my current company was acquired. Michael had a very sophisticated and structured approach to analyzing my knowledge, skills, and abilities, and then helping me craft my resume to maximize the potential for marketing myself. He took time to talk and coach, and was very caring.” – VP of HR, Aerospace

Training

“Today I had the opportunity to listen to Michael Long give a presentation titled “Building your Social Media Strategy”. I have close to thirty years in the search/recruiting business. I have conducted hundreds of searches in a variety of specialties nationally and have built two highly successful recruiting organizations. My personal billings have exceeded 500K in direct-hire/executive search fees multiple years. I mention these details of my background to make a point. I thought I knew all the tricks of the trade, strategies and processes a recruiter could use to achieve maximum success. Today Michael showed me a whole new world of tools and strategies that I never knew existed. What I learned today has re-energized me. I can’t wait to put it into practice.” – Managing Partner, National Recruitment Firm
