Testimonials

I have known Linda for several years and have consistently been impressed with her recruitment and communication skills. It’s a rare thing to be able to discuss the nuances, trends and directions of your industry with a recruiter. It’s even more rare for a recruiter to understand and empathize with very technical people. Rarer still for a recruiter to follow up, keep in touch and offer useful and actionable advice. Linda embodies all these traits and is very personable with it.

Carol; Thank you for the conversation this morning and taking time out of your Sunday. I really appreciate the feedback! It really summarized the last 20 years of my career and gave me feedback that I hadn’t heard before, which I will definitely use for further development and improvement going forward regardless of the outcome. I can say having interviewed with many companies this particular aspect of your process (feedback) separates you and your company from many other companies and I have found it to be very professionally enriching. Thank you very much.

I've worked off and on with Whitaker Companies for a few years, and they have always been super helpful and attentive. I've been trying to confirm my employment, and the professional I was working with went above and beyond. She responded to my emails late into the evenings, expedited my request, and really made the process easier. I would absolutely recommend Whitaker Companies.

Whitaker Companies are very professional and personable all at the same time! Paul Choudhuri and Patricia Simpson go above and beyond to meet not only the client's needs but also to place consultants in exactly the right place. Both communicated and followed through on my every need. They have been supportive and warm and anticipated my questions even before I knew what to ask. If you are a client with a need ... CALL Them! If you a consultant looking for a job ... CALL Them! Well done ... Whitaker Companies!

I'm currently working as contract consultant for Whitaker at a client facility. The hiring process was smooth and easy. The Whitaker rep has been friendly and stayed in contact throughout the contract, providing client feedback. If an issue arises, he acts as liaison with the client. It's been the best, most personal experience I've had as a contractor. At Whitaker you're not just a cog in the machine.
