I've been working with Melissa since 1999 and have found it to be extremely positive and productive. Melissa has known me very well and consequently she's been able to place me into positions in which I was challenged yet able to succeed. This relationship that I've had with Melissa has been the most important distinguishing characteristic in my relationship with Aquent as an agency. I've felt like there was a consistent contact for me to work with rather than an endless bank of headhunters. Sean H., Production Director
