Melissa is a leader among her peers, unequaled in talent, ethics, and demeanor. I have had the pleasure of working with Melissa and her firm on over 20 executive searches in the past five years. During that time I was thoroughly impressed with her ability to source, screen and deliver best in class candidates. She makes the process simple, efficient and the end product was spot on. Melissa is persistent while never losing sight of the client’s needs and brings an expansive executive network to tap into during those engagements. She has tremendous insight and business breadth across many industries and possesses outstanding client management skills. From start to finish, Melissa delivers!

Steve Kohn – President, Affinity Search

It is my distinct pleasure to provide both a reference and a recommendation for Melissa Truax I have worked with Melissa for several months now, and she was instrumental in helping me to secure a position her intuition told her would match my wishes. She was right, and not only was this the case, but she was also instrumental in helping me secure it. She has been reliable, accessible, helpful, and always optimistic I would not hesitate to support her in her work.

Thank you for your help all the way through the hiring process.
You helped me prepare for the interview and you did your best to keep me connected with the hiring company.

Dr. Andrew H., Idaho

Every candidate would hope that their job search experience would have Premier’s stamp on it. From initial screening to the first day of orientation, I was kept well informed and supported. Melissa and her team get 110% behind their candidate.
Melissa’s gift is communication. She is thorough, prompt, and dedicated. It is apparent that she loves what she does. In the end, both hiring manager and employee are ensured of a good match. I never thought a job search experience could be above and beyond any standard expectations, but working with Premier has brought mine to a new level.

Cecile T., Clinical Director of Inpatient Neuroscience

I want to thank you for your assistance in helping me find a truly premier position. You listened to my desires, responded quickly with options, gave me excellent advise and prompts concerning the process, and continued to be there as I make this transition. You are a paramount professional and I recommend your services without reservation!  

Patricia C.,Nurse Practitioner, Virginia

I was looking for a job because my husband was relocating for the military. By the end of that week I had a phone interview completed. Before the phone interview took place my recruiter went over several types of questions they might ask and also went over ones that I too should be asking. My interview was successful, I flew to San Antonio the following week. In total I went from being unsure where I was going to work to having an offer and acceptance in under 2 weeks. I would highly recommend this company for all of the above reasons and to take it one step further, they are honest and upfront about the  expectations for which jobs they might see fit.  

Michelle M. – ER Nurse Manager

Melissa, just wanted to send a thank you out. I wanted to let you know that I will let many of my nursing friends know about the website and just a extra thanks to you for you genuineness and your candid nature. I have come across several recruiters, but you are truly a jewel and I hope you send this email on to your supervisor. My sincere thanks again.

Stacy N., RN – Stroke Coordinator

What are the three top qualities to look for in a recruiter? Tough question but I would have to say connections, persistence and the ability to run the process like it was their company or career they were managing. This is one of Melissa’s key strengths, she invests the time and effort into understanding what is most important to her clients.

Charlotte B. – Recruiter III (IS/IT) at Spectrum Health

I can’t say THANK YOU enough for being the conduit for me and my next employment opportunity @ Inova Health Systems. What I appreciated the most was the coaching; guidance and mentoring you provide me with during the past few months. I had been looking for the “right fit” and YOU found it for me. Kudos to you!!!! I am so elated and looking forward to sharing my leadership experiences with the organization. Thanks again. 

Lynette J., MSN, RN, CPN

Melissa is a delight to work with. She has an uncanny ability to find great candidates for “hard to fill” positions in Healthcare. She does a wonderful job of pre screening applicants and sending on only the best of the best. I know I can depend on Melissa to find me wonderful candidates quickly. I highly recommend Melissa. She is a star!

Kathy S., PHR- Human Resources / Employee Relations at MedSynergies

Polly S., Senior Recruiter / Recruiting Manager

Hank Winters is one of the most thorough, well-trained recruiters I know. I’ve had the pleasure of working strategically with Hank for the over two years and he amazes me with his skills. Hank knows how to find candidates and vet them. He also knows how to discern the clients problem and find a specific solution for it. AND, Hank has the most positive attitude you’ve seen. It is always an uplifting conversation when you speak with Hank and you find yourself looking forward to his next call. In summary, Hank is a skilled recruiter with a positive attitude and wonderful personality that ANY client would be fortunate to work with!!!

Cindy H., Recruiting Executive

Hank was magnificent to work with. I have worked with other headhunters in the past and Hank is, quite literally, head and shoulders above all others in his industry. I was introduced to Hank via a family friend and immediately he wanted to get to know me and what my work interests were. Within the first two days he had a potential job for me and a month later, that is the job I now have. I cannot recommend him highly enough. Put simply, you would be a fool to not work with Hank, either as a potential employer or employee. He gets the job done efficiently, with flair and aplomb. I am honored to have worked with him and I’m proud to call him a friend!
