"When we have a hard to fill an opening in the areas of Web Developer or Project Manager, Patti Richards of the Connors Group is one of the first people I will look to for assistance. Patti's ability to match candidates to job specifications is superb. She has never sent a candidate to us that I've been disappointed with, even when the interview didn't result in a hire. My confidence level in the commitment that Patti makes and her desire to satisfy us as a customer is unsurpassed. The Connors Group will be on the short list of our preferred executive search firms for years to come."
