"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."

- D.L., Administrative Director, Outpatient 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 would STRONGLY recommend Michele! She did an exemplary job matching my strengths/needs with an organization that was the perfect fit for me. She listens carefully and anticipates the needs of her client/me and potential candidate. I LOVE my new job/organization and I think they love me too!"

- G.M., Assistant Vice President, Patient Experience

"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."

- J.C. Chief Nursing Offer

"I'm glad to have this opportunity to let you know how fortunate I feel to have Pam and Yvonne. They are both great and I enjoy having them on my team. I have Secord & Associates, Inc. to thank for this!"

- S.A., Vice President, Patient Care Services

"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

"Michele Secord is very enthusiastic, thorough and well prepared in representing the potential position opportunity. She completes and provides an in-depth review of the position, the organization and what key elements the employer is seeking. Michele screens and prepares candidates well, advocates for them and maintains excellent communication at all times. She is unique in her ability to represent the candidate and organization while maintaining a professional caring attitude to both parties."

- M.A., President

"I have had the great pleasure of working with Secord & Associates for over a decade in my present position. Michele has always been responsive, professional, and dedicated in staying on the search to find the right people to put in front of the management team for consideration. Michele does her homework to help her find the right candidates who fit our needs and our culture as an organization. She is always fully engaged with us and is always available and responsive. I can't recommend a better business partner in terms of retained search firms."

- J.M., Director, Human Resources

"In over 20 year as a Nursing Leader and Executive, I have worked with many recruiters. Michele is, without question, the very best. She takes the time to know the hiring facility and brings those who she feels will best match our needs, our philosophy and culture. I have never been disappointed with the candidates and I have never been disappointed with Michele, a very professional and personable recruiter."

- J.C., Director, Perioperative Services

"It is a pleasure for me to be able to speak-in shorthand- with Michele when describing the professional nursing competencies that are important to myself and my organization: She gets it. She is consistently responsive, extremely organized and keeps a pace in a search that sees one filling a position quickly and efficiently."

- S.R., Vice President, Nursing
