"From initial introduction, throughout the search and placement process and beyond, my experience with WinterWyman and my recruiter Jamie Chafel has exceeded all expectations. As I was not in a position where I was in a rush to leave my previous employer, I was able to set forth fairly strict requirements in the opportunities I was willing to pursue. Jamie was very understanding of these positions and worked closely with me to provide only opportunities that matched all of my requirements precisely. The insight Jamie was able to offer through each phase of the recruitment and hiring process was invaluable. I have and will continue to recommend WinterWyman to any of my colleagues who are interested in pursuing new opportunities in the technology industry. I cannot express how much I appreciate the assistance and guidance WinterWyman and Jamie were able to provide in my job search and placement." - Raymond G.
