I have worked with Cesar for many years. I say that Cesar is the best recruiter. I say that not because I met every recruiter in the world. I say that because whatever metric you use to define as “the best” …. then that is Cesar. He is focused on placing candidates in the “best fit”. He is thoughtful about how he considers each role and what his candidate can contribute. Above all else, Cesar is genuine. A sincerity in his work makes his efforts shine. I wish him the best in all of his endeavors.
Cesar is the best recruiter I have ever worked with. He was simply perfect in terms of analyzing my background, experience and skill set to determine what job opportunities might be the best fit for my career. In this regard, he built significantly strong and effective communication with me in order to understand my needs and expectations from a new role. Accordingly, he always kept in touch with me regarding new opportunities. To sum up, he substantially helped me to land a great job. Therefore, I greatly appreciate his efforts to assist me with my job inquiry. He has a solid knowledge of U.S. labor market so that he also has a great ability to assist job seekers in finding career opportunities that fit best with their background and previous experience. In addition, he contributes to the top-tier companies in hiring highly qualified and skillful professionals. All in all, Cesar would be a great resource to any job seeker and company that is why I have no hesitation in recommending Cesar to anyone that wants to take the right steps in career planning and hiring.
“Having Nicole as my recruiter was a great experience all around. She was personable, caring, detailed, driven, all of the above! She put her all into helping me receive the position I wanted. At times I thought she wanted me to get the job more than I did! It was truly a pleasure working with her. I have recommended her to several acquaintances looking for work because she treats her role as more than just a job. She really cares.”
“Brittany Wallis is a true joy to work with. She always keeps me in the loop with pertinent information and is always asking if there’s anything more she can do to further help me. She has taken the time to really understand what I want in my career and never pushes positions. A staff member of FirstPro who is truly always on their A Game, I quite literally would not be where I am today without her.”

It’s really nice to work with a recruiter like Amanda. She cares about getting you into the correct position rather than just trying to push you into a company to collect the commission.”
“I had the pleasure of meeting Mike Stanziola on the morning of April 15, 2014. What was the occasion? We were at QVC in West Chester, PA. I was interviewing there. As a job candidate, you are often alone in what is unfamiliar territory. Having Mike there was great. He was very energetic, friendly, and kind. Having that time with Mike helped me feel relaxed before I went in for the interview with the hiring manager. Everything turned out great because I soon received a job offer to work at QVC.”
