After being contacted by a variety of less-than-useful Food and Beverage recruiting firms, I was wary of the service to be expected from Kinsa group when they called about an open position. Further, I’d been happy at my position and was not particularly looking for a new job. That being said, Rob Navarro and Nancy Fergason knocked my socks off with not only the opportunity that they presented, but the level of commitment and service that they offered in going through the interview and eventual offer process. To my surprise, Rob not only was interested in telling me about the position for which he thought my resume to be a match, but also in finding out what it was that I was interested in when evaluating new career opportunities. He spoke at length with me about both my short- and long-term plans, and with this knowledge decided to move forward with one of the opportunities he had available.
Throughout the process, Rob and Nancy were accessible for any questions or concerns I had, pretty much anytime I wanted to chat. They were very diligent in keeping me updated on the status of the process, and were helpful in talking through my decision-making process when it came down to an offer. The day that I actually accepted the offer, Nancy called me from home, on her day off, which she spends with her grand-kids, to congratulate me on the offer and accepting the position. You cannot ask for a better or more involved recruiter.
Now, not only am I loving the new company and working in a position that is absolutely a step in the right direction for my career, but I am also earning a salary greater than anticipated because of Nancy and Rob’s help. In my experience, recruiters have been interested only in placing me in an open position; consideration as to my objectives is rarely taken into account, and when I no longer am a candidate that fits their needs, they refuse to return any phone calls or emails. Not Rob and Nancy, and not Kinsa. I couldn’t be happier with their help, with my position, and with the direction my career has taken – thank you!
