Candidate testimonial:
"I wasn’t even really looking for a new position! I was in the process of updating my resume because there had been some changes at the place I was working with staff incentives and investment plans for colleagues and it was possibly time to update and refresh my portfolio. It was at that exact time that I got a happy little email from Katherine Marano about some potential positions. One absolutely struck a chord with my heart. It was for a position that I had been working in that particular field for over 10 years in. It was an opportunity to learn higher complexity, research type testing in a patient setting and also a relocation to a whole brand new locale! I reached out to her and the whole process started to unfold. She was there the whole way for me in the negotiation process. She even was able to set up a visitation to the area and the job to shadow the environment I would be relocating to. Katherine and the whole HR team that worked on my onboarding were phenomenal. I couldn’t thank her more for the chance to start a brand new adventure in my life!"   - Jennifer Q.
