Heather Whalen

Executive Recruiting

Heather is exceptional in the job she does for both her clients and candidates. She is able to strike a perfect balance of bringing qualified candidates to her clients as well as serving as a tremendous advocate for candidates. She was able to quickly assess my skill set and find great fits. During the process, she always keeps you in the loop with candid and open feedback. She also provides amazing enthusiasm and is committed to finding the right fit for you. I think the most telling aspect of Heather is that after spending months working together, she did not end up placing me. However, her genuine happiness for me finding the right position speaks volumes about her integrity and dedication to her clients/candidates. I would not hesitate for a second to use Heather either as a client or a candidate
