I have had the pleasure to work with Chris while in my role as a Senior Account Executive in the staffing and recruiting group at CareerBuilder. Chris is unlike any recruiter I have ever worked with. He truly listens to what a candidate wants in his or her next career opportunity. He will not sell a candidate on a position or company, he genuinely is seeking to align a candidates goals with the right opportunity for that candidate. Chris not only will present the right opportunities to a candidate however he will also offer any advice he may have with his strong track record in the staffing industry. He truly believes in the mission behind staffing and putting people to work. He develops incredibly strong relationships with his candidates in order for them to come back to him or refer him to their friends/family as I have been proud to do a few different times. Chris views recruitment and being a recruiter in a unique way and has a unique process that I have seen works for several people. I am proud to write this professional recommendation for him.
I was fortunate enough to work with Chris while looking for a technology focused sales opportunity out of state. Unlike previous recruiters I have worked with, Chris was focused on what it was I wanted in a career, and only suggested options which fit those parameters. He was thorough, organized and extremely professional before, during and even after the interview process. Chris was constantly in contact, making sure I was prepared for the various interview stages, and also that the company and I were a good fit for each other. I strongly recommend his services to anybody interested in taking the next step in their career.
I am pleased to write this recommendation for Chris. There are many IT firms looking for the right talent, but Chris made sure to only discuss those that he knew would be beneficial to me, based on my requirements as an employee. His process was informative and well-structured, giving me all the information necessary to be informed fully. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the company as well, and gave great advice when preparing me for the interview process. Once I was offered the job, he continued his dialogue with me, to make sure I was completely happy with my decision. With many recruiters out there, Chris is a sure pick to help you find the best place for you to work.
From my experience, it is very rare to find more efficient, transparent, and supportive recruiters than Vortex. From day one, they set realistic expectations, objectives, but most importantly, makes you feel more than just a client in their book of business. Their innate ability to build meaningful relationships is palpable, and seemingly rare in this industry. I was always so impressed with their immediate follow-up protocol and accommodating availability (either on the clock or not, it did not matter to them).
