“Toward the end of 2014, I was contacted by Adam from The First String about an amazing position he wanted to talk to me about. The position Adam wanted to speak to me about was in Northern California where I was looking to move from Chicago, but had not started actively looking. I had been contacted by other recruitment agencies and found them very focused on, placement of candidates and getting paid, with very little understanding who their customers are and proceed with caution. Adam immediately was different and treated me as one of his customers. Adam worked with me from that moment on and helped me through this foreign process. Being in Chicago and not in Northern California where the position was, Adam coordinated phone interviews, travel for one-on-one interview and eventually the final offer.
What makes Adam and The First String different than any other recruiter? On my travel day from Chicago to Northern California for my one on one interview my flight was delayed for 5 hours due to weather and all the arrangements Adam had made, including my interview were in jeopardy of not being met. Adam was off work, but contacted me from his personal cell-phone and worked with The First String travel department to find me options should I not be able to make it out. He also contacted my interview panel and informed them of the situation. Luckily, after 5 hours my flight took off and I made it to Northern California. The next morning Adam contacted me to see if there was anything he could do and if everything was alright.
This showed me that Adam and The First String were more than just a recruitment company looking to place canidates and get paid. Adam understood his customers and took time to make sure that one of his customers: me, was take care of. After a few months in my new position Adam contacted me to see how things were going in my new position and if there was he could do. Now in my new role I have referred others to use The First String and my company is continuing too as well.”
