Testimonials

Working with Kathy proved to be a truly enjoyable experience. What set her apart from other recruiters I engaged with was her dedication, her personal interest in the candidate and her responsiveness. I felt like she is really working on my behalf and tried hard to understand what I am looking for in the new position. Results speak louder than words – I am starting my new role in July and I’m very excited.

I couldn’t have asked for a better recruiter. Kathy from Laguna Source was phenomenal! As stressful as job searches and interviews can be, Kathy really ensured the process was smooth and guided me through every step. Because of her support, I am starting a new opportunity as Senior Program Manager for a Biotech company next week and I couldn’t be more thrilled! I would recommend Kathy and Laguna Source to anyone who is looking to take their career to the next level.
