I found workharmony shortly after arriving in Canada. I sent them my resume and was immediately impressed when I met Deborah for coffee. She looked beyond my resume and I knew in that first meeting that she cares about the people she works with. Deborah takes the time to get to know you, prepare you and find the right company for you. I never felt like I was just another candidate that a recruiter was trying to place in their open job posting. She wants to find the right place for you and will use her insider knowledge and connections to make it happen.
Deborah is very well connected and respected in the industry. When I met with my future employer, they reiterated that her endorsement of a candidate is incredibly important to them. She opened doors for me that I would never be able to open by myself. After getting the job, I worked with Deborah on finding new team members for the company. It is fantastic to work with her from the other side too. She is honest and takes the time to find us the right people. She always delivers what we need and I trust her judgement.
