I had occasion to work with Jim in connection with a recent opportunity for which I was a candidate. In a world where the focus is often one-sided; Jim is a fervent advocate not only for his client but for candidates as well. Jim’s guidance, advice, proactive communication and thoughtful consideration of me as a candidate made for a great experience. I recommend Jim and his team unequivocally.
It was refreshing to see an Executive Search firm going to great lengths to balance the expectation of an organization with that of a candidate. Joe not only took time to understand what I do and how this can be matched with (the organization’s) requirement but was also candid enough to tell me what was possible and what was not. I strongly believe that Gibson Consultants is different from the rest of the breed.
I want to thank you for the time and effort you spent to connect me with exactly what I was looking for in a company to finish out my healthcare career. Your guidance and direction throughout the entire placement process was spot on. At no time during the process did you pressure me to continue forward, rather you continued to make sure my questions were being answered, the answers were meeting my needs and if the relationship would fit my style.
Working with Betsy and Jim at Gibson Consultants far exceeded my expectations. They clearly understand their clients’ needs and expectations, resulting in a professional and rewarding experience.
Betsy Wertheimer found me my dream job! She was amazing to work with throughout the entire process and has a genuine concern for her candidates. Betsy was open, transparent and dedicated to my success and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience!
Thank you to Joe for his assistance throughout the hiring process for my position as VP of Business Development at HGS. His approach, advice, and insights were invaluable to me and contributed to my being selected for the position. After I accepted my new role, Joe followed up to make sure that everything was going well. To sum up, Joe was very interested in my success.
I recently had the pleasure of working with Betsy and Jim. It was so clear to me how much diligence they put into the process, to not just find and place a candidate, but to ensure that it would be a good, long-term fit on both sides. While I have worked with other recruiters in the past, I have never found any of them to be as knowledgeable and passionate as Betsy. She is simply the best recruiter I have ever encountered. Throughout the entire process, she was professional, responsive, honest and empathetic. I couldn’t be happier about my new position. I owe a tremendous gratitude to both Jim and Betsy for making it happen!
I had the pleasure of working with Jim and Joe recently and was immediately impressed by their friendly professionalism, deep knowledge of the industry and of the immediate opportunity. But what struck me most was their balanced approach – as a candidate, I felt that my needs were as important as their client company. It needed to be right for me as well as for them. They made sure that I understood the position fully, was well prepared for each step in the process and knew exactly what was happening as events unfolded. I never had to call to find out the status – they were always right there with me. I’ve worked with a number of recruiters and can truly say that this was the most well organized, professional and enjoyable process I’ve ever been through.
Betsy is hands down the best executive search professional with whom I have worked. I’ve had discussions with more than a few recruiters over the years, and have always ended up staying put, or turning to my well-established network for employment opportunities. To Betsy’s credit; she found me, interviewed me thoroughly to discover my desired career path, made herself available at odd hours to accommodate my difficult schedule, and ultimately paired me with a boss and employer that will be a great fit for me. I owe a massive debt of gratitude to Betsy, and Gibson Consultants.
I’ve used the big-name firms in the past, and my experience with Gibson Consultants was better. I retained them for a critical hire, and their knowledge of the market really showed. The process was quick and efficient, and they delivered candidates that were right on target. I hope to use them again in the future.
