Keep an open mind. Things on paper aren’t the same as in real life. More often than not, your early opinions about the opportunity (or person) will change as you learn more, and if you make rash decisions you may miss out on something (or someone) that would have been the perfect fit. It’s helpful to find a recruiter/consultant that you trust and can have honest, open dialogues with, and it’s important to voice what you’re looking for and what your concerns are as you move through the process.
Not being prepared for interviews. Whether you are the interviewer or interviewee, it leaves a negative impression – one that you can’t afford – if you are not prepared or you do not treat the interview seriously. Candidates: do your research ahead of time, know about the company and the people you’ll be meeting with, and have questions ready (you can write them down!) from that research. Employers: this is a hot job market, which means talented candidates are hard to come by and likely have several options. If you’ve succeeded in finding someone you want to interview, don’t mess up the opportunity to hire that person by not being prepared with relevant questions and topics to discuss during your time with them.
I love hiking, hanging out with friends at new spots around the Boston area, traveling and meeting new people. If you have any favorite restaurants or hang out spots local to the greater Boston area, I’m all ears!
The opportunity I have to build relationships with highly intelligent and interesting people. There is no better feeling than helping make a career match happen, and that starts with understanding the short- and long-term needs of both clients and candidates. I’m excited by the opportunity I have to get to know individuals on a personal and professional level to ensure their happiness and success on the job. At the end of the day, my role is all about helping people take the next step in their career, and that is a rewarding experience to be sharing in!

“Cassidy Gallegos is an extremely professional recruiter. She even goes beyond that by being a career advisor and a sounding board for her clients. I had a great experience working with Cassidy during my job search. She was a great communicator via phone and email, and dedicated time before my interviews to give me all the details she had about the company and the individuals who I would be meeting with. Cassidy always kept me posted on the status of my application with multiple companies, and only presented me with relevant jobs to reduce the distraction and noise. She also helped me evaluate jobs and offers whether those came through her or externally. Cassidy has been very transparent about the company and my application status. She has made my experience with her pleasant and personal. I have recommended Cassidy to my colleagues and will continue to do so.” – Mina B.
"Cassidy Gallegos is the best recruiter I’ve ever worked with! She builds long-term relationships with her clients, which is so rare in the recruiting world! I was amazed by how Cassidy helped me through the hiring process. After I’d accepted an offer - that was not an end to our relationship, but just the beginning! After a few months, Cassidy followed up with me and even came for a lunch at my work. Incredible, right? How many recruiters have visited you for a lunch, to check if you are happy? After some time, I was looking for a job again and of course Cassidy was the first person I sent my updated resume to. Again, she was very attentive and asked the right questions to help us both better understand what I was looking for. After receiving a few different offers, Cassidy helped me make an intelligent choice on which one to take. I’m so thankful for her time and expertise! And of course, when my friends ask me if I know a recruiting consultant to connect them - lucky me, I do!" – Maxim T.
"I worked with Cassidy Gallegos for some months to find my current position. Working with Cassidy was altogether the most pleasant and fruitful experience I've had working with a recruiter. Cassidy presented me with a lot of different opportunities and did a great job preparing me for interviews. More than anything, though, Cassidy was always very responsive and transparent about what was going on. She kept me in the loop on everything and didn't try at all to influence my choices. Working with Cassidy was a pleasure." – Michael T.
"Cassidy Gallegos was a great recruiter to work with during my previous job search. She was always very quick to respond back to me when I had any questions or concerns about open positions she had sent my way. I had a very tough schedule to work with during my job search and Cassidy did an excellent job opening up her schedule for me so that we could discuss positions she had and to prepare me for what I should expect when speaking with each company. I had a very chaotic calendar during my job search and Cassidy was able to handle interview appointment issues and keep opportunities open for me if we had to reschedule. While discussing job openings with her, I felt like she took my feedback and was able to understand my concerns and what I liked about the opportunities and use that to find better matching positions for me. Overall it was great to work with Cassidy and would highly recommend her." – Mike Y.
