As a long time IT professional it has been necessary from time to time for me utilize the services of a recruiter when attempting to transition to a new job. My most recent transition was made possible because of the professional skill and dedication of Tara LeFevre. My experience with Tara as a recruiter was quite unique. Tara understands that both her clients and candidates are people with real concerns and worries. Through my transition, beginning with my first contact with Tara, right through to the job offer, she inspired confidence and trust.
To illustrate, let me share a brief statement from one of my emails to Tara: “I know this is a business transaction for you, but I can tell that it is more. Because of your honesty with me and your skill, I put my trust in you and you didn't let me down. I am grateful for what you have done and hope that we can maintain contact as time moves on”. Should ever the need arise to find employment in the future, I will not hesitate to contact Tara LeFevre at JTL Services, Inc.
Working with Bryant and JTL was a great experience. He made sure he knew all aspects of the position and our company before starting the search, so he would find the right candidates for us. And he sure did! Very soon he sent us a resume that was a perfect match, skill set and personality wise. That was the start of a strategic relationship between our companies. I strongly recommend working with Bryant and JTL.
Bryant is great in many ways. He always take the time to understand the situation and offer thoughtful advice or help. He is also fantastic at follow through. In a day and age where you are never sure when someone will respond you know Bryant will reply within minutes.Overall, he is fantastic to work with.
I want to acknowledge the professional and personal manner in which Tim Peters represented JTL Services in working to successfully match my candidate needs with those of JTL’s client company in my recent career job search.
Tim always worked to make me feel comfortable; we did not just talk over the phone, he invited me to meet with him personally where I had the opportunity to express my needs with regards to a new position and demonstrate what skills, experiences, and education I could bring to a client company. He shared with me the needs of the hiring company, business picture, personalities and organizational structure. With both the hiring company and I having a good understanding of each other and Tim recognizing the match, we were able to go forward with the interviewing process. Tim stayed on top of the communications, scheduling and interviewing loop through which I was ultimately considered the right candidate for the position.
With regards to the job offer, Tim acted to assure there was a fair and equitable salary and benefits package that the hiring company and I were most happy to agree on.
I am very pleased to recommend Tim Peters and JTL Services.
I have known Tim Peters and JTL Services for some time. I have found my interaction to be professional and productive. All candidates sent to me for consideration have been well qualified and fit the job description provided to JTL. Going forward, I will continue to use JTL for my recruiting needs and would recommend JTL to anyone looking for a recruiter with little time to waste on unqualified candidates and a strong sense of urgency.
I wanted to thank you again for all of the assistance and support you provided regarding my career transition. Since I had not entered the job market for several years, the guidance and tools you made available regarding this transition were very valuable and helped ease my trepidations. I truly appreciated your candidness and respect your ability to be insightful while not compromising your professionalism. The level of service, facilitation and guidance that JTL Services provided exceeded my expectations and I would gladly recommend them.
Tara is wonderful to work with. She is knowledgeable, extremely responsive, and genuinely cares about her clients. She aims to find the perfect match for both employer and potential employee. I felt confident that I was prepared when going into interviews because of Tara and her advice. Her expertise made finding a new, perfect position exciting and very satisfying when an offer was made. I can't say enough good things about Tara and there is no question that I will choose to work with her in the future if the opportunity ever arises.
I have worked with Tim Peters and JTL Services for over 7 years and have found their candidate screening and referral selection to be excellent. The background checking and follow up on whatever is requested to be done has been prompt and professional. We have hired more than several candidates presented to us by Tim and JTL and we expect to continue our relationship with them for many years to come.
As an executive new to the CT area, I needed to find some very capable people to improve our company's operations. Tim Peters of JTL Services found me those people quickly and efficiently. He grasped my specific needs and, with his experience, fleshed out the underlying fundamentals of the positions. Every proposed candidate was in the ballpark so no time was wasted and I was able to hire two very different positions quickly enough to have a positive impact on my operations. Not only do I recommend Tim but I expect to use him in the future for my needs.
Working with Bryant has been a pleasure. Among his many talents as a professional recruiter, his ability to listen is his most valuable skill. Understanding what his client needs and asking probing questions allows him to provide the best talent available for the position.
Bryant is top of the list. Keep up the good work!
JTL Services worked diligently to find me several new professional opportunities. In fact, within two weeks of my first meeting with JTL, I had had three interviews and had two very solid offers from perspective employers. Through out the process, I felt that JTL valued me both as a candidate and as a person. I was in control of the search process and JTL did not pressure me to pursue opportunities that I did not feel were a good fit for me either professionally or personally. The level of professionalism and personal touch provided by JTL Services makes them a leader in their field. I have and will continue to recommend JTL Services to other IT professionals who want to enjoy a productive and stress free job search while being treated like a member of the JTL family.
Tara is an amazing recruiter, consultant and person! I have dealt with recruiters in the past but have never had an experience like this. She advises and discloses all information she can in regards to the position and coaches you through the entire process. Most importantly Tara cares and is sincere about what is best for you and your career. Thanks to Tara I am now working for an amazing company that I never would have found on my own had she not reached out. My family and I Thank You Tara!!
You feel like Tara is personally involved when you have her help you with your next job! She is there for you and gives you advise every step of the way. She called me 2 years after I had stopped an interview process with a company she suggested ... and she managed to put me at the same company and same position with both parties satisfied and happy. What else can I say - Tara is the best - she knows her stuff!
After working with many of the top recruiting agencies for several months I decided I didn't want to bother with them anymore. In fact, when JTL called me I was ready to give them a piece of my mind to be quite honest. However after talking with a recruiter at JTL, Bryant Madore, I felt confident JTL could help me find a job.
It really wasn't long at all when I got an interview and then an offer letter from the company I'm with now.
If you're in the market looking for a new job I highly recommend JTL's Bryant Madore. JTL truly is a company with integrity and dedicated to helping you find your next career move.
Tara is a good recruiter. How do I know? Well a year and a half ago she contacted me and wanted to know if I wanted to switch industries & roles (Quality in pharmaceuticals to R&D in manufacturing). My prospective employer had recently been bought out and was merging HR practices. This made things more difficult, but I was sheltered from most of it. Fast forwards a year and a half and I am involved in new product launches and recruiting summer interns. I am happy, my company is happy. What more could you ask for?
Tara and JTL Services were instrumental in finding a rewarding job for me. Tara was professional, attentive, and helpful. She identified what I wanted in a company, assessed my areas of strengths, and found me a position at a firm that aligned with my professional philosophies, desires, and goals. Tara worked tirelessly for me to prepare me for interviews and find a job that is a perfect fit. I strongly recommend Tara and JTL Services.
The term "partnership" has become a cliche used by salespeople when it comes to providing services or conducting business - Tara and her firm, JTL Services, embody the definition of a partnership. She invested considerable time early in the process to understand our hiring needs, sales model, and company as a whole as we expanded into the Raleigh market. Her approach has resulted in quality hires across multiple departments allowing us to scale operations and meet hiring goals. She doesn't see each placement as a transaction either, Tara maintains a healthy level of post placement communication with the hiring managers and candidates to ensure all parties are satisfied. Tara's end to end approach has resulted in a partnership that will continue to yield results well into the future.
This letter is to serve as my formal recommendation for Tara LeFevre and JTL Services. I recently had the pleasure of working with Tara regarding an employment opportunity in the IT industry. In her initial contact, she described in great detail the job description and it was obvious that she was doing more than just reading a sheet of paper.
Over the following weeks, Tara distinguished herself from the run-of-the-mill recruiter in many ways. Unlike others in her industry, she followed-up and was very proactive. She made me feel like I was not a number—something I noticed time and again when working with other recruiters in the past. Tara even took the time to coach me on interview tactics in the context of this particular employer.
In addition to helping me land the job, Tara went above the call regarding salary and HR negotiations. She kept me in the loop every step of the way and made the entire process seamless. During the entire process, I got the impression that the employer holds her and JTL in high regard. I feel this is very important when dealing with agencies such as JTL.
I would strongly recommend Tara and JTL to anyone who is serious about moving on to a better job. I am very happy with the results she provided for me.
Bryant was extremely helpful as my recruiter. He gave me very resourceful links to things that would help me research The Pantry, and the people I was interviewing with there. He prepared me for the interview better than I could have prepared myself! Even when I had questions about the benefits and how to handle the juggling of 401K, he gave me resources to get my questions answered quickly. Bryant found me my dream job!
Bryant has impressed me as an honest and genuine professional who was willing to help me out throughout the whole interview and placement process. I truly have enjoyed working with him and would highly recommend him, which I have to many of my friends.
Tara was the best recruiter I have ever worked with. She was very knowledgeable about the companies and positions I was chosen to interview for. Although the first position she chose for me did not pan out, she remembered me when a second position at the same company opened up. Her honesty, coaching and support helped me to win a fantastic job at a successful organization.
I would recommend Tara for anyone who is looking for an honest, caring and supportive recruiter.
Tara was phenomenal to work with. After initially contacting me for an employer she was working with, she discovered that the position/company was not the best fit for me. After learning more about my skill set and what I was interested in, she then referred me to a position I could really thrive and grow in. Tara was very engaged throughout the process to ensure that the placement would be a long term solution for both the company and the candidate.
Tara was excellent to work with. She responded to my messages promptly, and gave me plenty of useful information and guidance during the application process. I would definitely recommend her services to anyone.
Bryant Madore with JTL Services placed me with Duke. My experience with JTL was fantastic. Bryant was responsive, supportive, organized and provided me with great intelligence to prepare me for my interviews. He also did a great job negotiating on my behalf. This was the first time I've ever actually worked with a professional recruiter and I can say with certainty that if I have a future need I will work with JTL and Bryant Madore. I would highly recommend you do the same!
I started working with Bryant in the fall of 2006 for a position at R. H. Donnelley. He was always very professional and was on top of things. His follow up was always timely and thorough. I would not hesitate to work with him again when looking for a job.
As an HR Manager, I've worked with Tara and JTL Services at several organizations, and I've been proud to "take her with me" as I've moved into different roles. It's been a sincere pleasure getting to know Tara and her firm. She works tirelessly to ensure that quality candidates are presented for job opportunities, and takes the time to cultivate positive relationships with not only the organizations I've worked for, but the candidates themselves. She truly exemplifies what it means to be a partner in recruiting.
I would recommend her and her firm highly to anyone looking for assistance in finding quality candidates for open roles.
Being out of work is bad enough. Being out of work during bad economic times is worse. Tara Lefevre of JTL Services got in touch with me after seeing my resume on the web. Within two weeks of that first phone call I had a better job with a much shorter commute. Tara's insight to the people I would be interviewing with and her knowledge of the company needs really helped get me through the grueling interview process. Thanks Tara!
Tara is definitely someone you want on your side when making a move to a new employer. She will negotiate on your behalf to obtain the best possible compensation package possible. As an engineer herself, Tara is extremely knowledgeable of the aerospace industry with an emphasis in, but not limited to, engineering roles.
Tara will work with you every step of the way from fine tuning your resume to making sure everything is going smoothly even after you have started in your new position.
Making a career move can sometimes be a little overwhelming but Tara will work with you to overcome every obstacle you may face. She is very professional, understanding and passionate about helping people. I highly recommend Tara to assist you in your next career move.
Tara was an absolute pleasure to work with in finding a new career opportunity. She made sure that I had more then adequate material to prepare for each phase of the interview process and was always quick to respond to any questions or concerns that I had along the way. Tara made the process of finding a new opportunity relatively easy and I would gladly work with her again. I have already forwarded inquiries from other people at my former company who are hoping to also find new and exciting opportunities. Thank you so much for all your assistance and patience with me along the way, I am very fortunate to have landed at my current employer.
Tara LeFevre is an exceptional recruiter who matched me to the type of job and company that I was looking for. The interviewing process proceeded smoothly in part to the preparation and time that Tara provided. She walked me through every step of the process, setting expectations, reviewing topics specific to the organization and offering tailored coaching based on my strengths and weaknesses. Without Tara’s services, this opportunity would not have been possible.
If you are looking for a recruiter who values the relationship of both the recruit and the hiring company and has the experience required to facilitate the match, I would recommend Tara LeFevre.
Tara found me an ideal position at a tech company while I was trying to relocate. She was very helpful through the entire process, providing guidance and advice. I will seek her out again if I need recruitment services in the future.
It was fantastic working with Tara. She is not your typical recruiter that is hammering you with spam seeing if a position fits. She does her due diligence to make sure the person and the role are a fantastic fit for each other. She was also highly involved throughout the entire process which demonstrates to me that she generally care about her recruits and wants to see them be successful. I would definitely work with Tara again whether it would be for myself or to find excellent people for roles on my current team.
I've worked with Bryant over the last 10 years to fill several key personnel roles. For those roles, Bryant has used a consultative process to understand what each open role's tasks and responsibilities really entail , including understanding the eventual fit and impact those roles have to my organization. Armed with this information, Bryant has been able to provide very focused candidate selection results, which have been more successful - both in short open role fill times and high candidate qualification matches - than personnel search services I've used from other parties. To me, this difference in success between Bryant and other parties exemplifies Bryant's professionalism and competency!
I have had the pleasure of working with the recruiters at JTL Services over the past 5+ years. During that time they have successfully sourced both IT and financial professionals for our staffing needs that have resulted in hires. They are professional and knowledgeable, but most importantly they listen to what we say we need rather than trying to steer us towards something or someone that does not match our requirements.
JTL Services, Inc. assisted with a job search for our company, which was out of my scope of expertise. We are a financial advisory firm and I needed to hire a software developer to enhance our client relationship system. Lacking in the knowledge of software development candidate screening, I really leaned on JTL to help me with this search as this particular job was an important role to our firm. Together, we discussed the overall strategy to fill the role, and ultimately JTL presented me with excellent candidates and helped me fill the role with the perfect fit for our firm. That employee has been with us now for two years. A job well done and I'm a happy client.
I first met Bryant when I was looking for a new employment opportunity shortly after taking my first job out of school. Bryant listened as I explained what I envisioned as my next dream job and matched me perfectly with my new employer. He made all the necessary connections and follow-up to ensure I would receive proper compensation. Bryant exceed my expectations in every way.
Tara is committed to her clients! I have worked with Tara and her team at JTL Services for a few years now. Her attention to detail and responsive demeanor makes coordinating qualified candidates uncomplicated. She is careful not to send candidates that only meet our requirement but those who fit the culture of our organization. JTL has assisted us to fill IT positions but also those outside their specialties. I would recommend her services to any company that seeks assistance in recruiting top notch talent. Tara and her team are wonderful to work with and I look forward to many more years of working together.
I am very pleased to recommend Bryant Madore and JTL Services as professional recruiters. Bryant has placed several candidates with us and he is very diligent in his work. Bryant works hard to understand the needs of the position and only refers candidates to us who meet our requirements.
