I have been a Consultant with Search Wizards for a little over a year now on two separate long term recruiting contracts and my expectations have been exceeded way beyond my imagination. It is truly a pleasure working with the Search Wizards team, particularly Leslie O?Connor and Miranda Hinshaw. These ladies are courteous, professional, yet dynamic, supportive and fun-loving. Working with Search Wizards is an efficient and streamlined experience without any glitches or hiccups, a very smooth well-oiled machine indeed! Search Wizards does not treat their Consultants as faceless drones, we are treated like a member of the SW family.

Search Wizards has truly been a blessing to me, both professionally and financially. I wish them continued success in their endeavors and am glad to be a part of the team!

Search Wizards is a great team! The caliber of recruiters and the reputation of the Search Wizards organization are outstanding. It's great to work with a team of recruiters whose skills and abilities are at the top of their field. I enjoy working with Leslie and her team. Leslie provides all the support you need and best of all; I have never once had an issue with being compensated appropriately or on time. If you're a skilled recruiter with outstanding search capabilities, the Search Wizards team is where you want to be!

The Search Wizards staff is very thorough and professional. The fact that I was ushered through an effective interviewing process has definitely enhanced my personal career path. As a professional who has "been around the block", I would HIGHLY recommend Search Wizards' excellent services for candidates and companies, alike.

The greatest business compliment is to merit a reputation for integrity - a promise is made and kept. Search Wizards embodies this integrity - internally with great employees and externally with satisfied, confident business partners. I've had the rich pleasure of working with Search Wizards and was rewarded with their intelligent focus, drive and delivery. This is my recommendation: search no more, call the Wizards!

Search Wizards is the best contract recruiter staffing company in the business. What makes them the best you may ask? The people, the processes, the client relationships and the fulfillment of their promises makes Search Wizards the best. The Search Wizard's staff demonstrates their integrity by treating consultants with respect and professionalism. I have been in this industry for many years and this was the first time I ever received a gift of appreciation for my 1 year anniversary. During a stressful time for our family I received notes of concern from many of the Search Wizard's staff.

I will attribute process as the single reason that I have never had an issue with pay at Search Wizards. They have clearly defined processes and the people carrying out the processes have the liberty and discretion to administer them fairly. I am in a role that requires frequent travel and they not only book flights of my choice and hotels to my standards, they provide immediate and complete no-hassle reimbursement of expenses. Now, if you've been in the industry for any amount of time you'll recognize this as a rare feat.

The relationships that Search Wizards has with their clients allow you to function in your expertise. When consultants come in they are allowed to do what they do best. I've been on the consultant and vendor side of the business. Over time you get a good sense of when the vendor isn't taking good care of clients and being just. Because of these relationships, I've seen Search Wizards find additional contracts within the same client for consultants that have outworked their contracts.

Every promise I have received from Search Wizards has come to fruition. I was first contacted by Miranda about an opportunity, but there were some delays with the interview process, but Miranda said she wouldn't forget about me. Oh, did she ever remember me! She called me one evening about an opportunity with Microsoft and the rest is history. Next, I was told the work was pleasant and it was. I was told that the contract would be 3-6 months and ongoing if I continued to produce and it is. They have been upfront about everything and if you are like me, you can work "all day" with a company like that.

Leslie, Miranda, Kathy and Sherry are First class all the way! I wish continued success to the Search Wizards family.

Leslie is changing the standard for consulting companies and blazing new trails in our sourcing/recruiting industry. I have worked for Leslie and Search Wizards for two and a half years as a recruiting consultant at Microsoft and it has been the best career decision I have ever made. She is a true leader in the industry and one of the hardest working people I know. She has the amazing ability and stamina to not only provide excellent service and partner with her clients and employees, but also wear the hat of super uber entrepreneur. I'm not sure how she does it all, but I'm so glad she does. I'm proud and honored to be a part of her organization.
