Job seekers need to always be current on the market and what skills make them highly desirable and employable.
Employers need to always remember that the ability to hire a top quality candidate is a "two-way street." A great candidate needs to "sell" him/herself to a company AND the company needs to "sell" the candidate from day one as to why the candidate would want to work there. Many companies do not do this and end up wondering why their offer is rejected. Simply selling the candidate after an offer is made, is in many cases, too late.
Always talking with and meeting new and wonderful people.
"Leo Louden is the first recruiter I've ever interacted with that I felt was truly a professional in his field. He demonstrated a breadth of experience and I feel I owe my successful placement and career at my new company to him. He really pulled for me." - C.S.
“I've been working, networking and researching opportunities with Leo Louden for more than a decade. To me, he represents WinterWyman and he is my 'go-to guy' - I am very pleased with the new opportunity he presented to me and will continue to both represent him as a candidate and rely on him as a resource.” – John P.
"As I am sure you are aware, it is your employees that are the face of your company. I have known Leo Louden, and worked with him for many years in my various companies. Leo has always been a great asset in assisting in my searches. He is direct, honest, and extremely knowledgeable about the Software QA industry. He works closely with me to understand my environment and the skills required for open positions. As a result, he presents me only with strong candidates. He does not treat me like a client - he treats me like a partner. He has earned my trust, and I would recommend him to anyone with hiring needs." – Brian M.
"I worked with Leo during my job search and he was phenomenal! I had a great time working with him and would absolutely use him again. In fact, he'll be the first person I call if and when I decide to change jobs again. He really seems invested in his clients and appears to genuinely care that both employers and employees are matched well. He is a fantastic recruiter--I actually thought they were all slime balls when I met him (sorry, I've had some really bad experiences). I'm so grateful for his services! And guidance! And coaching! Great guy!" - Lana H.
"It was a pleasure working with Leo to find my next adventure in the working world. He took the time to get to know my strengths, weaknesses, and preferences to identify 'right fit' positions. He was always there to talk to - bounce ideas and thoughts off - something that was very helpful and comforting to me. I can honestly say Leo's the best recruiter I've ever worked with!" - Jim R.
“My recent experience with WinterWyman was fantastic. At the time when my name was forwarded to WinterWyman, I had already been using other recruiters. Even though Leo was the last recruiter to start helping me, he got me the most relevant interviews in terms of my talents and my personal preferences. He seemed to have a good rapport with the companies he contacted, and as the interviews came, he never slowed down trying to find me more opportunities. Most important of all, when I told Leo that I wasn't interested in an opportunity, he respected my wishes, and didn't try to make me feel bad about it, or force me into an interview like many other recruiters did. He found a perfect position for me. If I am ever looking to fill a position, or have a friend or colleague looking for work, I am going to recommend WinterWyman first.” - Kevin D.
“Leo is truly in a class by himself. He was perfect in the business side of our relationship: advising, making referrals, arranging interviews, following up with potential employers. But what really got me was the way he treated me: with humor, consideration, and respect - like a human being. Leo really stands out from the crowd!” - Ken A.
"I felt extremely well prepared for my interviews by both Leo and Lauren. They handled themselves professionally at all times, and I felt supported by them every step of the way, from resume feedback to interview preparation to interview feedback to receiving the offer. They were efficient in their communications, both by phone and email, and I valued their advice tremendously. At all times, and especially when I needed them most, I felt like I had their full and undivided attention. I can't say enough about Leo and Lauren! They worked as a team to help me find the right job with the right company. Furthermore, I am impressed that WinterWyman's culture promotes an environment where your consultants from different areas work closely together when the situation warrants it. My background is somewhat eclectic and not easily categorized, and I am thrilled to have secured a job where the qualities that make me unique are valued. In an era where job candidates can be commoditized and viewed through the narrow lens of a boilerplate job description, I feel like all aspects of who I am and what I've done were taken into consideration by WinterWyman, leading to a great fit all the way around. I especially appreciate their hard work through the holiday season, where my first interview was just before Thanksgiving and I received my offer on the day before New Year's. So much for those who say that no one ever gets hired during the holidays!" - Howard B.
"The opportunities presented to me by Leo were highly relevant to my skill set, and the interview process was streamlined and efficient. He even arranged for an out-of-town interview trip and provided excellent tips for navigating the apartment rental market." - F.O.
"Leo Louden was fantastic! He lined up interviews with companies far faster than I could have by myself. He also listened to my feedback to help tailor the search to my needs. I found a job much quicker than I expected by working with Leo." - Geoff R.
"Working with Leo Louden has been very rewarding. Not only did he help me find and land a job I really like, but he coached me and was always available when I needed him. I am better prepared for the future thanks to him." - Charles S.
"Leo Louden constantly delivers perfect results. He spends time to understand the need and finds a perfect match – A+!" - Art B.
"Working with Leo Louden is an amazing top-shelf experience. He is a 100% class act. Leo's ability to find the best jobs in the hottest markets is just amazing. Thank you, Leo and WinterWyman!" - Jonathan V.
