“Her calm demeanor and quiet professionalism throughout the search process was so appreciated”
“Looking for the “right” position is challenging and stressful. Shira made the process seem so simple and, I dare say, almost relaxed. Her calm demeanor and quiet professionalism throughout the search process was so appreciated. I was particularly gratified that she called me before each interview to coach me and provided invaluable insights along the way. I have already sent several people to Shira for her to help place them, knowing full well that she is the consummate professional and that the people I send will be well taken care of. I highly recommend Shira for your next not-for-profit job search!”
