I provide fast, friendly illustration and design services. I work well
with my clients and strive for perfection! I have worked with
Ogilvy&Mather for a long time, drew illustrations for Forbes
magazine and have worked on various independent ventures, in different
publishing houses and promotional agencies.

My aim is to reach client's complete satisfaction, so I always offer
two-three revisions until the image is approved. I do hand-made
sketches, scan them and send to my client for revision.

I worked with Odyssey Search Partners among many others. They stood out as the most knowledgeable and went above and beyond in helping me find my next dream job on the buy side. My recruiter over there was Anthony Carlow and over the course of working with him for several months I now consider him a friend. He always put my career over his own incentives.

I have had an excellent experience with The John Michael Group. They treated me professionally, were very thorough in preparing me for my interview and helped me land the job. I highly recommend them!! Their focus is Accounting, Finance and Human Resources.

Sam and Lori was the worst recruiting agency I've ever worked with. The service they provide is truly incompetent and parasitic. They treat talented creatives with no respect (whose skills they live off of) and deliver unsatisfactory service to the agencies. Middlemen like these should be obsolete in our industry.

Huxley is one of the worst head-hunting agencies, it does have outreach still (though not very deep), but its workers are unethical... beware...

Green Key Resources seem to have a lot of openings. They helped me to find an entry level HR job but I know that they do a lot of administrative and finance jobs too.

You research an opinion by checking what was stated in that opinion or in this case contact the clients and the company to get the gist of the company to see if its the best in their field.

I work in the fashion industry, and have never heard of the search firms mentioned. However I would highly recommend The Melanie Andersen Agency, I have had great experiences with them each time I have worked with Melanie and her team, and they seem to work with all of the best fashion and beauty companies in the city.

Went to Luxe Ave, as a warning they are very rude & the gentleman there is not very professional. They are not helpful at all. Nor do they keep your job hunt confidential to your current employer. BEWARE!!!!

I was fortunate enough to hook up with Distinctive Personnel. Great group of people. I was having such a hard time finding a headhunting group that did not treat me like cattle. I found the personal attention and support I needed with this group. Its a tough market out there and one could use all the help that they can get.
