“I have been enjoying both your podcasts regarding job search and interviews. I’m adjusting my search and resume after I hear your podcasts.”

“The advice you give is incredible!”

“Enjoyed your audio clip about ‘Why You Don’t Even Get The Interview. “

“I wanted to thank you for providing incredible information for job seekers!  I am a great employee, but a poor job seeker.  I spent 21 great years in the USAF and when I retired I was picked up immediately by Harris Corp. by a former vet and friend.  I’ve only had two jobs in 29 years of employment so looking for work now is..daunting!

However, I listened to your podcasts and read (reading) your online articles.  Your advice has reinvigorated my job search and I am seeing increased interest after applying some of your ideas in just one day.”
R.Q. Program Manager

“I recently obtained a new position after a great deal of work and effort. In the last phase of my effort, I had four interviews in the second round set up within two weeks of each other.

During this time, I sat in my favorite coffee shop in Portsmouth New Hampshire (Breaking New Grounds-highly recommend btw), and watched your interview videos.
I am convinced that I would not have obtained the offers that I did without your youtube videos.Please accept my sincere thanks.”

Jeff, thanks so much for helping me find my current position.  Not only did you land me a position that exceeded my financial expectations, but you did it in short order.  This position was also with a very large, reputable firm.  It’s clear that through your relationships and network, you were able to match me with a role that perfectly fit my skills and experience.  And I did not see this position posted anywhere which tells me you clearly have the inside track.  Working with you and your team was a very pleasant experience.  You were professional, accessible, responsive and helpful.  I appreciated your practical No B.S. advice throughout. “

I’ve had the honor and privilege of knowing Jeff for the past 10 years as a co-worker at CISNY (we began working there on the same day) and as a SME on every aspect of the job search process. He is a person I truly respect and marvel at. I have worked with hundreds of recruiters and search consultants in my 30+ years in the field and Jeff is in the Top 2% of all the people I know in the profession.

I would like to also thank Jeff for graciously joining me as a Featured Speaker at a recent job search seminar I led sponsored by The Met Council in NYC. This was the first time I saw Jeff in this type of setting and he mezmorized and educated me and the entire audience with his presentation on how to turn a job interview into a job offer.

PN, Resume Writer

Although I haven’t had the chance to work with Jeff directly as a client or co-worker, his positive energy and great business/recruiting advice always brightens my day or makes me think more creatively. I always read whatever he sends me, and appreciate his particular brand of intelligence and humor. Thanks, Jeff!

PH, Employee Mobility Professional

This is easy, Jeff is simply the most competent, ethical, and smart head hunter I have ever worked with. In fact, he is so smart I steal ideas from him. I do not know anyone with Jeff’s breadth of depth of knowledge in the business of finding the right job for the right person. His exceptionally high ethical standards are not just another plus, they are the basis for his work.

HK, Executive Coach

Jeff Altman is definitely an exception when it comes to recruiters. I worked with Jeff back in 2005 and found him to be honest, upfront and a hard worker. I wasn’t the only person who found Jeff to be exceptional. While at ISO, four of my colleagues at ISO were also placed by him as well and they shared the same view about Jeff as I did.

I would strongly recommend Jeff. He’s the only recruiter in my connections that wasn’t a part of a company I worked for.

Keep up the excellent work Jeff!

Jeff Altman is a visionary as well as an expert in the fields of recruiting and job hunting advice. He understands the marketplace and the dynamics of employers and employees. Jeff knows how candidates need to work under pressure in this economy and he advises job hunters on how to avoid those mistakes that would damage their search and prevent them from presenting themselves in the most positive light. Jeff understands human dynamics and his experience in human psychology makes him sensitive to the ways and means that will provide successful outcomes for employers and future employees. His advice creates the win-win scenario for all involved. As a Consultant I have found Jeff’s writings and advice has helped me formulate winning strategies in securing and sustaining successful business ventures. If I had an opening in my firm, I would definitely hire him as a key member of my team.

JBC, Director

I first met Jeff away from the business and found him to be both engaging and quite articulate when it came to organisational strategies, economic outlooks and interpersonal relationships. I have since utilised his knowledge (especially his e-zine) in narrowing and honing my search into the market once again. Jeff’s background in psychology and political science gives him a unique perspective to the ever changing world of business that we see before us now.

KS, Leasing Specialist

I had the pleasure of working with Jeff as a recruiter when I was hired at Bear Stearns back in 2006. Jeff had a clear understanding of the position and worked with me all along the way to make sure it was a good match. Since then, I’ve been impressed by the way Jeff keeps up with the changing job market. Not only does he offer ‘hands on’ assistance to his candidates, but he also goes above and beyond by publishing material that provides genuine assistance to anyone looking for a job. Bottom line, Jeff offers exceptional services to the employment community!

VL, Documentation Specialist

Jeff has provided an exceptional experience offering a level of insight and dedication that is rare to find among recruiters, as he allocates and adequate amount of time to gain an understanding of my history, attributes, goals and objectives. By doing so he offers a personal level of service that assured me that I am being treated as an individual, not to be subjugated to the shotgun approach so many other recruiters take with their candidates and clients. Jeff’s guidance is that of an industry veteran who knows that the amount of time he spends up front will create a long-term and lasting benefit. Recruiting is serious business, this is your life being affected by opportunity, so creating the right match is paramount. Jeff takes his business and his clients seriously, is focused on the outcome, and ultimately wants to create a better situation for everyone involved.

Jeff is one of the most visible and reachable recruiters I’ve had the opportunity to know. His mid-week e-mail suggestions give good insight to employment conditions with a number of suggestions and actions steps to make a difference. Jeff is deeply personal with the events he shares on his family events along with his weekend suggestions. I would offer a strong recommendation for this individual.

I follow Jeff online now on most social networks, so he is readily accessible and have known him in industry over 10 years. He utilizes Constant Contact as a medium for expanding his reach as a recruiter.His email marketing this way is aggressive and well targeted. I also know locally in NYC he maintains many excellent contacts in the financial sector. The firm, Concepts In Staffing is very conscientious in their follow up with me as a candidate and continue to post many excellent executive level positions across the web.That has made a lasting impression on me that they are there for long term relationship building, not here today, gone to Mahwah.

DA, Recruiting Manager

“I’ve known Jeff for many years and this time hired him for what he calls, “Paper Services.”

He listened to our concerns and requirements and found four very good people for us quickly, gave us insights and advice about each, and allowed us to select one who we believe will be perfect for us . . . all for an extremely reasonable price. Jeff under-promised and over-delivered, just as I remember him doing years ago. Definitely worth hiring to recruit or research for you!”
