"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

"Michele Secord assisted in the search for a seasoned, senior clinical administrative position. She conducted a superb search for us and we are pleased with both the results and the process she conducted."

- G.G., Director of Practice Operations

"Much to my surprise (in this tight market) Michele produced six excellent candidates within a 4-8 week timeframe. She was at all times personable and professional and I found her to be reliable and easily accessible in not only identifying candidates, but also in reconceiving the role and sorting amongst the candidates."

- S.S., MD, Vice President, Medical Affairs

"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

"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."

- S.G., Education Consultant

"Thank you so much for all of your efforts over these last months as I went through the interview process. You have been such a joy to work with, and such an incredible professional! I am extremely grateful for all of the time and effort you put into helping me through the process!"

- D.N., Healthcare Executive

"Michele is extremely thorough and impressed me with how well she understood the position I was applying for. Her insightful questions helped me to articulate the contributions I made in the positions I held, which enabled me to present myself as a strong candidate. Michele managed the recruitment process at a fast pace, keeping me well informed along the way. She obtains an in depth understanding of each position as well as the organization's culture and environment. She is dedicated to identifying candidates who are not only qualified but who will be successful in the organization as well."

- E.P., Department Administrator, Urology

"I really appreciated all you did to assist me in applying for and eventually being offered the position here at Gaylord. You gave me all the information I needed to understand the role, what the hospital would have to offer me and who would be interviewing me. Your support throughout the entire process helped me make a great decision."

- K.R., Director, Care Management

"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."
