More recently Jeremy has focused his work in markets spanning from San Francisco to the entire state of Texas to Denver to the Greater Washington Area.  In the past 18 months, Jeremy has helped three different financial institutions add immediate impact players in two states and three markets by lifting out four different teams.

Testimonials

“Jeremy is a highly capable and professional individual.  I have worked with a myriad of recruiters over the course of the last two decades.  Given that, I can say without prejudice that Jeremy's representation of our institution via his involvement in the recruiting process has been best-in-class.  In addition to being instrumental in helping us to recruit and hire a top-tier level of talent, Jeremy embodies a level of professionalism that is often lost in the recruiting process.”

- Client

“Jeremy presented a number of qualified candidates for our consideration.  The overall quality of such candidates tended to be far superior to those offered by other staffing professionals in similar, past situations.  Jeremy was an excellent partner during all phases of the process.”

- Client

"Let me preface my comments by saying I owned and managed my own recruiting firm in the past.  Jeremy is the best, most professional and honest recruiter I have ever had the pleasure of working with.  Most recruiters only want a trade and could not care less about the fit between the recruit and the firm.  Most recruiters feed you names on the one hand and try to recruit away your people with the other.  This is not the way Jeremy does business.  I have reason to believe that I can and will do substantially more business with Jeremy in the very near future."

- Client

“Jeremy did an excellent job in taking the time to understand our bank and its particular needs and using that information to bring us quality candidates within our market. He did an excellent job in communicating with both our bank and the candidate throughout the search process. He kept the candidates motivated and informed throughout the process and maintained communication through and after hiring to ensure a smooth transition. I enjoyed working with Jeremy and was impressed with his knowledge of the market and ability to attract well qualified candidates. I look forward to continuing to work with Jeremy for future staffing needs of our bank.”

- Client

“Jeremy Anderson is recommended based on his professionalism, candor, and leave no stone unturned attitude. I came in contact with Jeremy in the spring of 2009, while conducting a career search. I was treated like a sports professional working toward a new contract. Jeremy worked his contacts, helped to uncover a need with a prospective employer and he presented me as a solution to that need. From day one to post employment follow-up, Jeremy proved to be an invaluable resource, career counselor and motivational coach.”

- Candidate

“Jeremy always did what he said he was going to do.  He is better than most recruiters I've worked with. I would work with Jeremy again. In fact, I already recommended Jeremy to a very talented financial professional.”

- Candidate

“Jeremy took the time to listen to me and what I wanted out of a new job.  He never pushed me in to anything and always made sure that I wasn’t getting into something that was not right for me.  Jeremy knew exactly what I wasn’t willing to budge on and never put me in a situation that involved something I did not want.”

- Candidate

“Jeremy did a great job of knowing me and when something came around that fit he moved forward quickly.  He was easy to reach with questions and to me that was a big deal.  I moved across the country and before I made this decision I needed to make sure it was right for my family and me.  Even after accepting the new position he was accessible to help with the end of the process, including a relocation expert that helped give me options to move my family.”

- Candidate

“If it wasn’t for Jeremy’s help during the interview process, I really don’t think I would have gotten the job!  Jeremy did an excellent job preparing me for the many interviews I went through.  He was always willing to work with my schedule.  He was interested in my feedback and seemed almost as excited as I was after my interviews.  He was easy to talk to and get along with throughout the whole process.”

- Candidate

“Jeremy did a very good job of interpreting who I was professionally and what I was looking for in a new position. His coaching was invaluable throughout the entire process from interview to hire. I was very impressed with Jeremy's professionalism, coaching and his enthusiasm. He effectively matched me with what I believe to be my best opportunity to enhance my career.  I have already recommended Jeremy to several others.”

- Candidate

"Jeremy’s continual availability allowed me to let go and not become overly worrisome throughout the process. Being that calm isn’t typical of the job-search process, but Jeremy made it easy. He helped me balance the need for financial gain with a focus on job fulfillment. I felt like I knew every aspect of the job for which I was interviewing and that confidence helped me get the job. Jeremy’s performance was stellar.  He and I have caught-up several times since I started my new position and I’d definitely consider him a vital business relationship.”
