I worked with Melissa first when she represented me at Aquent and then moved to having her find me new full time and contract talent in my assoc. creative director role at Temerlin McClain. Through every situation you can think of she was simply the best recruiter I have ever worked with Steve Gates, Creat. Dir., Starwood Hotels
More than any other recruiter I have worked with in 10 years, Melissa has a knack for choosing the right talent each and every time. Thanks to her powers of perception, we hired three out of three creative candidates here at Credit Solutions. The talent Melissa brings to the table is top-notch. You are in good hands with Aquent. Heather Carmichael, VP Operations Credit Solutions
Melissa does an excellent job recruiting and staying in touch with her recruits. I'll always be grateful for her help in my transition from project management to a full-time copywriting career on contract at Capital One Auto Finance. Alan Margulis, Sr Copywriter
