Everyone strives for perfection (employers want to hire the "perfect" person and job seekers want the "perfect" job), but perfection is not easily attained. Waiting for perfection comes at a cost.
Not understanding or, perhaps better stated, underestimating the job market.
Playing (electric) guitar, exercise, swimming, spending time with my family.

"Joe did an excellent job for us. He filled this mission-critical position very quickly. Joe developed a very clear sense of our culture and our needs very quickly. He offered up really viable candidates for our CFO. Joe was a delight to work with!" - Janet D.
"Joe was very helpful in regards to filling our immediate needs for a very difficult position. He had a candidate right away and was able to get them into our process. I would be happy to work with Joe again in the future for difficult positions." - Sam S.
"I've worked with many recruiters in many agencies. My experience with Joe (Kotlinski) was one of the most effective and professional I've ever had. He was extremely thorough in interviewing me to learn about my skill set, what I was and was not looking for in my next job, and matching me with only relevant opportunities. Should I find myself in the position of looking for work again, Joe will be the first person I contact." - Paul M.
"Working with Joe Kotlinski was by far the best experience I've had with a recruiter. He took the time to really understand what my skills and personality were, as well as what I was looking for in a position, both in compensation and work environment. He only sent leads that seemed to fit with what I was looking for, rather than just flooding me with open reqs. This was especially important to me as I was relocating from New York to the Boston area. I also felt very well prepared each time I went on an interview because of the prep time I had with Joe beforehand." - Gerald S.
"Prior to working with Joe [Kotlinski], I had several very negative experiences with job recruiters. Working with Joe has completely reversed my opinion. Joe is not pushy, and truly cares about placing his candidates in the correct positions. He provided useful advice and was also excellent at hearing my concerns and helping to address them. I had very high expectations and criteria throughout my job search, and Joe was able to locate a position that is practically custom-fit to my needs. I will not hesitate to recommend Joe to any colleague of mine who is searching for a job. Should I ever find myself requiring Joe's services, I will definitely reach out to him again. I think most recruiters are just salespeople for jobs. Joe really seems to understand that the work he does impacts the livelihood and lifestyle of whole families. Thanks for helping me reach some personal goals." - Justin H.
"I’ve known Joe Kotlinksi for several years now. My experience with staffing companies is that they are looking to populate their contact lists and are only interested in filling positions without much regard for the candidate. Joe breaks this mold by genuinely caring about matching the right person and role. This is evident in his honest and transparent approach. Joe and I have kept in touch throughout the years and have developed a friendship. I’m pleased to say that he has had a positive impact on my life and my family by helping to place me in excellent roles." - Justin H.
