“I secured Jeanette’s services for two very different clients and projects. She is results driven and finds a way to work with hiring managers regardless of style or biases. She can be very direct in a way that individuals accept and she gets results. Jeanette is also skilled at using humor to gain cooperation in difficult situations. I have also tapped into Jeanette’s expertise to refine interviewing and selection processes to secure hiring decisions in a more effective and timely manner. From a technical perspective, Jeanette is a skilled and versatile recruiter for a wide array of financial, IT, marketing and sales positions. She quickly learns about the job and work environment, sources candidates and does a great job of prepping and selling them on the opportunity.” Hired Jeanette as a Recruiter in 2001, and hired Jeanette more than once.

“Jeanette is one of the best talent recruiters I’ve worked with. She gives it her all with passion in finding the best talent for companies. I highly recommend using her services.
It’s with great pleasure that I offer this recommendation for Jeanette. I am personally aware of Jeanette’s recruiting creativity and effectiveness. She is very highly regarded among her peers as someone who knows how to build and effectively utilize her network, as well as someone who is always willing to share her knowledge and offer creative suggestions to her peers. While Jeanette is extremely effective in general, I have noticed that she has also handled the most difficult assignments (those that others might wish to avoid) with great effectiveness. Jeanette is also someone, that upon offering her opinions and suggestions, has her colleagues thinking, “Now why didn’t I think of that.”
I also have personally seen Jeanette’s effective leadership skills enacted through an association to which we both belong, of which she is president. She has the ability to interface well with people of a wide variety of cultures and backgrounds. I recommend Jeanette without reservation or hesitation. I know that her clients are extremely well served.” I was with another company when working with Jeanette at Cotledge & Associates, Inc.
Jeanette is an exceptional HR Professional and expert recruiter who has a passion for finding the perfect person to fit the role and the needs of the client. Jeanette takes the time to get to know her client well, understand the important competencies that a person must have to fill the role and strives to exceed expectations – all while maintaining a cheerful manner throughout any kind of search. Jeanette clearly has a passion for placing people in the right roles at the right time! Jacqueline worked directly with Jeanette at Cotledge & Associates, Inc.
