Testimonials

Thank you and your team for the excellent recruitment work. This was a much more seamless and easy process than I’ve experienced in a while. The only challenge I had this time around was grappling with the final decision as we had two very good candidates based on your team’s very good vetting process. I really appreciated the organized approach and responsiveness, which gave me time to focus primarily on evaluation.   Should we need this level of support for recruitment in the future, I’m happy to recommend your team as a resource.

Insight Executive Search did an excellent job of helping us fill two senior research positions. Our own recruitment efforts did not provide the same caliber of candidates that Insight was able to give us. Aaron also provided great guidance and advice throughout the entire recruitment and hiring process. Committee for Children would be happy to work with Insight Executive Search in the future.

After 5 months of searching ourselves to no effect, we brought on Insight Executive Search to help with this difficult search. Aaron and his team were very fast to understand our unique requirements and immediately started producing excellent potential candidates that we never would have found on our own. We at Hopelab would happily work with Aaron and his team again for future senior research roles.

The search was for a major leadership position in the specialized area early childhood development. I went with Insight because of their past focus on similar or related positions, and I was not disappointed at all with my decision! Insight, and particularly its CEO Aaron Schmidt, carried out the search with great care and attention to my requirements and to matching my needs with possible candidates.

I have worked extensively with Aaron at Insight Executive Search to hire a senior person in the health services field. What worked exceptionally well with Aaron was our continuous communication to refine the characteristics of the candidate we were seeking. Knowing what we wanted, Aaron worked tirelessly searching the field for the right person and right fit. He sourced many excellent people and we finally found a stellar person who is taking hold in our organization and doing excellent work. Thank you, Aaron

I was very happy with Insight Executive Search.  Aaron Schmidt built a great and diverse pool, was very persuasive in getting people into the pool and helping us with the evaluation, interviewing and, later, hiring process. We are extremely pleased with the person we hired.
