    Feedback from a Client

    “Our experience was very positive with Sebastian.

    First of all - the person – who has turned out to be absolutely everything that I could hope for. She has only been on board for a week, but in that week we had a couple of zoom conferences, she has been incredibly responsive, she has done background research on her own, and we are light-years ahead of where I thought we would be. She understands the issues, has already provided me with a couple of detailed manuscript outlines, and has responded very positively to the strategic direction provided. In short, I could not be happier with this person, and am already considering other areas where we might be able to take advantage of her impressive capabilities.

    Secondly – the process – you very quicky got us a number of CVs, and literally the next day we had a detailed discussion of the candidates and their individual strengths and weaknesses. The off-line feedback was invaluable, and you stayed connected during the process, not in an annoying way, but just to make sure that we were getting all the information we needed. You absolutely met our needs for identifying potential candidates, provided important independent background information, kept the process on track, and moved things forward VERY expeditiously. Two weeks after our first interview with her she was on-boarded and hit the ground running.

    You can put us squarely in the “very happy customer” category.

    “Clinnect is excellent. Taylor was very professional and personable and I was happy to have her represent me. She helped me navigate the interview process in an encouraging and supportive way and at the same time, firmly and successfully persuaded me to complete the requirements needed to keep the process moving forward. She conducts thoughtful screening interviews and actually gets to know a candidate over time. In addition, thanks to Taylor advocating for me, I received a significant increase and pay in bonus that I had been seeking. Taylor is the one recruiter I trust and I will always be grateful for her.” – Director level candidate placed with a small pharmaceutical client
