Below is a snippet of what our clients say about our work:

“After months of unsuccessful recruiting for a business development professional in Indianapolis, IN, I found Michelle and Navigate Recruiting through a mutual friend via LinkedIn. Michelle spoke with me at length and then worked directly with our HR staff. Her understanding of the legal market, and her persistence, resulted in the identification of an applicant who went through our filter and was hired. Most impressive was Michelle’s reach into a new market, and her ability to close what was an extremely difficult recruiting process. Needless to say, we continue to use Navigate for our staffing needs.”

“Michelle delivers powerful results by applying extensive marketing experience when approaching recruitment campaigns. Her creative and disciplined approach to Giant Oak challenges has ensured we communicate the Giant Oak brand consistently and with passion across multiple audiences and domains. Her contribution to our team has produced a great return on investment. She’s great.”

“Working with Michelle was hands down the best decision I have made in my career to date, and that’s an understatement. When I was introduced to Michelle, I knew where I wanted to be but lacked the clarity on a path forward. Michelle not only gave me that clarity, but provided me an amazing opportunity at my current company, while instilling a confidence in me in regards to my professional background and skill set. She was not just a recruiter, she became my partner and a mentor through the entire process. My experience was nothing less than transformative–proving that Michelle and her expertise can not be matched.”
