“I wanted to thank you for providing incredible information for job seekers!  I am a great employee, but a poor job seeker.  I spent 21 great years in the USAF and when I retired I was picked up immediately by Harris Corp. by a former vet and friend.  I’ve only had two jobs in 29 years of employment so looking for work now is..daunting!

However, I listened to your podcasts and read (reading) your online articles.  Your advice has reinvigorated my job search and I am seeing increased interest after applying some of your ideas in just one day.”

“During this time, I sat in my favorite coffee shop in Portsmouth New Hampshire (Breaking New Grounds-highly recommend btw), and watched your interview videos.
I am convinced that I would not have obtained the offers that I did without your youtube videos.Please accept my sincere thanks.”

PH, Employee Mobility Professional

“This is easy, Jeff is simply the most competent, ethical, and smart head hunter I have ever worked with. In fact, he is so smart I steal ideas from him. I do not know anyone with Jeff’s breadth of depth of knowledge in the business of finding the right job for the right person. His exceptionally high ethical standards are not just another plus, they are the basis for his work.”

HK, Executive Coach

“Jeff Altman is definitely an exception when it comes to recruiters. I worked with Jeff back in 2005 and found him to be honest, upfront and a hard worker. I wasn’t the only person who found Jeff to be exceptional. While at ISO, four of my colleagues at ISO were also placed by him as well and they shared the same view about Jeff as I did.

I would strongly recommend Jeff. He’s the only recruiter in my connections that wasn’t a part of a company I worked for.

Keep up the excellent work Jeff!”

Jeff knows how candidates need to work under pressure in this economy and he advises job hunters on how to avoid those mistakes that would damage their search and prevent them from presenting themselves in the most positive light. Jeff understands human dynamics and his experience in human psychology makes him sensitive to the ways and means that will provide successful outcomes for employers and future employees. His advice creates the win-win scenario for all involved.

“I had the pleasure of working with Jeff as a recruiter when I was hired at Bear Stearns back in 2006. Jeff had a clear understanding of the position and worked with me all along the way to make sure it was a good match. Since then, I’ve been impressed by the way Jeff keeps up with the changing job market. Not only does he offer ‘hands on’ assistance to his candidates, but he also goes above and beyond by publishing material that provides genuine assistance to anyone looking for a job. Bottom line, Jeff offers exceptional services to the employment community!”
