"Pat is a personable, knowledgeable, straight-to-the point recruiter who is a joy to interface with and learn from. She is able to draw from you what is not written, and synthesizes the information to help you move forward with targeted positions. I highly recommend her and hope you have the opportunity to interact with her in your career."
"Let me preface this recommendation by sharing that I have spoken with Pat Jacobs only once. However, that initial conversation was one of the best I have ever experienced as candidate speaking with a recruiter. Not only did Pat listen attentively to what I shared about my background and experience, she also imparted genuine knowledge about her client, was forthright about their needs, and gave me a concrete timeline for follow up. It may have only been one conversation, but I was definitely impressed."
"For anyone looking for a pleasant and efficient contract recruiter, Pat Jacobs is your gal. I've had the pleasure of working with Pat in past years on a number of positions and Pat has always returned a call quickly, has been honest about the opportunities she's presented and has been receptive to feedback on the clients she supports.
I've kept Pat's number handy over the years, because she's a great recruiting asset with the experience and knowledge I believe helps place great people. I would recommend seeking her first if changing jobs was in your future."
"Hiring Pat Jacobs was one of the smartest things my organization ever did. As nonprofit board members, we tried – and failed - to run a search for a key position ourselves. We soon realized that we had neither the time nor expertise to handle a comprehensive recruitment effort. Pat was amazing – she immediately understood our needs and seem to intuitively sense our culture and what we wanted in our new hire. She was strategic, perceptive and professional. She provided a level of advice and guidance throughout the search and hiring process that far exceeded our expectations. Most important, she found us an immensely qualified and talented individual that fits our organization perfectly. Thank you, Pat!"
"Pat is an exceptional recruiter because she doesn't make recruiting transactions--she builds recruiting relationships with both the prospective employees as well as the prospective employer (and Pat has recruited me as well as recruited on my behalf!). Ultimately, I've found that Pat is one of the few recruiters whose network in the industry and geography is deep, and most importantly, because of this experience and depth, she gets what recruits and companies are looking for right off the bat."
"Pat contacted me regarding a career opportunity that matched really well with my skills and past experience. Although I have only known Pat for a few weeks, I had first-hand experience of her strong ability to communicate information to all parties involved in the recruitment process. Pat was very well informed about her client’s needs and provided as much information possible to help me through the recruitment process. I highly recommend Pat to any job seeker or organization looking for a good recruiter."
