"I have hired Michele Secord on several occasions to recruit for nursing leadership positions. I found it very easy to work with Michele. Due to her nursing background she understands the position, and can assess the culture of the organization. She is well networked and able to provide a unique candidate pool within a quick timeframe. Additionally, she stays in touch with the candidates post hire to ensure a smooth transition."

- C.D., Former Vice President, Patient Care Services & Chief Nursing Officer

"As a candidate I felt very prepared for the entire interview and hiring process. In my case this took place over a period of 3 months. I have never applied for a job for which I knew so much detail ahead of time. The preparation phase that Michele initiated ensured that I understood the responsibilities, time commitment, reporting structure, key stakeholders and exact expectations of the job. This assured that I went into the job with complete knowledge, no surprises, and I believe helped me to be successful in the role. Having this information up font also helped me to decide if this truly was the role for me."

- L.S., Executive Director

"I will say, I can tell you are great at what you do and I feel you have the best intentions and integrity for your clients."

As a client and a candidate Michele keeps you informed, and the recruitment process moving smoothly and in a timely manner.

- A.T., Administrative Director, Surgical Services

"Recently I have had the need to retain Secord & Associates, Inc. for four very specific searches of which we were presented with candidates in a timely manner who had been thoroughly screened and absolutely qualified. Michele understands what many recruiters fail to learn: a client's time and needs are the most important part of the process."

- R.J., Former Recruiter

"I had the privilege to work with Michele during my hiring at Gaylord Hospital. My experience was nothing but positive! Michele is an excellent communicator and collaborates extremely well with all of the parties involved in the recruitment and hiring process. I found her to be very organized and efficient. My time was well planned and I was well informed. Her work in part led to a very successful hiring process for me! I would be happy to recommend Michele and Secord & Associates to any organization."

Michele has successfully helped us hire several critical roles within the organization. She is professional, timely and detail oriented and completely customer focused. Her network is extensive in the field of healthcare and leadership. She takes the time to understand the needs and environment of the organization and department. She is proactive in her communication of the process and has a passion for what she does. She is a delight to work with."

- C.R., Chief Human Resources Officer

"I thank you for being such an instrumental part of moving me forward and giving me the boost I needed to make a change. You truly are an expert in your field. Even though you were told that I appeared "light" with experience based on job title/salary, you didn't stop. You saw something in me, took another approach, and landed me an interview. The rest is history. You didn't give up and for that I'm grateful. I'm excited for this new journey and hope to become an integral part of the team."
