Jim Lappin did a very good job with my placement and I have worked with many recruiters in the past but I thought he was the most professional and most sincere that I have worked with. Other recruiters have been like salespeople.
Jim is a tremendous business partner and one that I consider vital as we move forward filling open positions or growing our sales ranks.
