Our Candidates Say

I want to express my gratitude for all of your advice and guidance in my search for an in-house corporate counsel position in Portland. These are coveted positions as you well know. Your efforts on my behalf opened many doors and led to my hiring at a prestigious global company. I couldn't be happier. Thank you again.

Attorney Candidate

I truly appreciate all that you did for me. You can be assured that I will send any colleagues who may be looking for a job change your way. I appreciated your professionalism and felt that you were a strong advocate for my skills and desires. I frequently talk with other lawyers around my class year that are thinking of a job change and I will be sure to recommend you.

Attorney Candidate (associate)

Linda Green Pierce has been relentless in marketing me to many of the best law firms in Portland. She helped immensely throughout the past several months by successfully getting me in front of several of Portland's top firms, resulting in my being presented with multiple job offers.

Attorney Candidate (associate)
writing to the family about his new position

You have been living in my brain! All the issues and back and forth discussions are the ones I have been having with myself. Of course, since you do this for a living, you have undoubtedly walked many a person through these exact internal dialogues many times. It is helpful to know what (the target new law firm) is thinking in terms of initial bottom line, at least in a ballpark sense. That does change the perspective.

on her transition from one law firm to another

Thanks again for all you do. It is very refreshing to know I just need to go where pointed and ultimately make the decision, but that you will make sure that the details are coordinated during the process and are making sure the best foot is forward at all times.

Attorney Candidate

It was nice talking to you today. It was refreshing to speak with a recruiter who knows as much about the local market and the industry as you do!

Attorney Candidate

I just want to express my gratitude for all of your advice and assistance in my search for a law firm job in Portland. Your efforts on my behalf were a key factor in my happy outcome -- an exciting opportunity at (law firm). PS I would be happy to be a reference if I can be helpful.

Attorney Candidate

Thank you for your counsel, direction, words of wisdom, encouragement, and (above all) friendship during my career transition to (the new law firm.) I could not have done it without you!

Attorney candidate (a partner)
on his transition from one law firm to another

Thank you for taking the time to meet with me so that we could become acquainted. I am extremely pleased to be working with you on my job search. In fact, I don't think I would want to work with anyone else. You provide a great deal of support and I know you are an exceptional advocate on my behalf. It is nice to be associated with a person of your character and integrity.

Attorney Candidate

Thanks for all your help in getting me here; it was really appreciated. (The new firm) looks like it will be a great fit for me. All the people I have met so far have been really nice and full of encouragement. I have to say, having that time off (between positions) was nice, but not having to worry about getting a new job at a good firm is even nicer!

Attorney Candidate

Thank you very much for all of your help. You made my search completely effortless. You can count on me as a source of referrals in the future. It was a true pleasure to work with you.

Attorney Candidate

Thank you for your assistance with my job search. Without the information you provided to me, I would have been compelled to make, somewhat apprehensively, a significant career decision in a vacuum. However, as a result of your efforts, I was able to make an informed choice between two vastly different employment opportunities.

Attorney Candidate

I really thank you very much for such a wonderful cooperation. You have personally helped me more than enough and opened my eyes already. I am sure I will use the advice as soon as possible.

Attorney Candidate
on Our Interview Preparation

Just wanted you to know, Bob, how much I enjoyed working with you... You have been a refreshing change from the majority of recruiters/HR departments I have encountered in my job search -- you are actually responsive and follow-up when you say you will! My experiences with Linda have also been excellent, and were the basis for putting my trust in the two of you.
