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.

Chris is a very talented recruiter. He is the « perle rare » as the French would say! His background in life sciences allows him to understand the pipelines of the pharmaceutical companies. He quickly grasps the strategy and culture of the companies to match the perfect candidate. Chris was a strong asset during my hiring process. He was a constant support and gave me precious advices. I would highly recommend working with him to find new talents for your company or for your new career adventure.

—Chrystelle Bougault, at Xencor

It has given me the unique opportunity to learn Ko- rean business culture as well as explore my heritage. Songdo affords us the benefits of a modern infra-structure in a multicultural setting with a world class school and the conveniences of fine shopping, dining, and entertainment needs all within easy reach. Seoul and other great nearby destinations are just a few hours away as well. I would strongly recom- mend taking an Global Employee opportunity in Korea, and especially in Songdo which has exceeded our expectations.
