What Our Candidates are Saying

Prior to my experience with Gage Personnel, I had never worked with an employment agency.   What I can honestly say, however, is my experience with Gage was nothing but a positive one! 

Within hours of sending my resume over to Gage Personnel, I received a phone call from a Gage recruiter asking if I could come in for an interview.   During the interview, the recruiter asked questions about not only my prior work experiences but also my future goals; I immediately felt as if they were working to understand me and what I was looking for in a future position. Finding the right position certainly didn’t happen overnight, but they presented a number of options that really coincided with my Marketing background…good things take time.  I went on several interviews with various businesses and all the way through, Gage was there to offer interview advice and help me determine the right fit for my long-term professional goals.  After accepting a position, Gage continued to keep in contact with me, touching base every couple of weeks, to make sure the position was, in fact, the right fit.  The recruiters were always prompt to return my calls and emails and answer any questions I had along the way. 

Though I was unsure whether or not I wanted to work through an employment agency, I quickly realized that my decision to apply with Gage Personnel was the best decision I could make in terms of my professional life.  Working with Gage Personnel presented opportunities that I never would have known about otherwise, as I now understand that many employers only hire through employment agencies such as this.  Nonetheless, I would recommend, and have recommended, Gage Personnel to anyone searching for a job and/or career.  I don’t think I could have found a better team of people to help me find my place in the working-world!
