I am not in the business of making anyone’s dreams come true. That is up to each and every one of us as individuals. I am in the business of finding and presenting the best available talent to discerning employers who demand not only the education, and experience, but the intangible assets as well; that certain “je ne sais qois” in order to fit seamlessly within their organization.

Customer Testimonials

"Joseph was invaluable as my recruiter and worked diligently to place me at my new job. He kept open communication with me throughout the interview and placement process, and worked hard to answer any questions I had. His upbeat and positive attitude was a great help in motivating me prior to the job interview, and made working with him an enjoyable experience. I definitely recommend Joseph as an effective recruiter."

"I called Joseph Gentile after a college friend recommended him; I had been struggling for several months in my search for a new job and my friend told me how Joe had previously made quick work of placing him in a role. So, I reached out and from the start he was very thorough in getting to know me. He asked for multiple details and highlights from my career, and what my interests were in regard to future opportunities. Within two weeks, he was in contact with multiple companies on my behalf, one of which would end up being my new employer. It’s been about a month now since beginning my new job and I am extremely pleased with the caliber of company that Joseph recommended for me, as I feel it is a great fit for both my lifestyle and personality. My experience with Joseph was nothing but positive. He is a very effective and thorough recruiter, as well as just an all-around good guy. I appreciated his open communication style while working together and really feel like he kept my wants, needs, and strengths front of mind when he was evaluating potential placements. Should I find myself looking for a new opportunity in the future, I will definitely be seeking his expertise again."
