Al initially contacted
me about a possible position when he received my name from a colleague.
He talked with me to learn more about what I wanted to do with my
career, and realized that the position in question was not what
I was looking for. He did keep me in mind, though, and when the
right position with an international manufacturing firm came up
over a year later, he contacted me again. I subsequently got that
job and have moved along in the company, now working at the headquarters
in Germany. He really looked out for my interests and was not just
offering up my name to any company that was looking for people with
my background. I would not have had this opportunity, if he did
not place such a priority on fitting the jobs to the people with
whom he works.

have been working with Alan Daum for 15 years now mostly in the
Pharmaceutical or Biopharmaceutical area of automation and Computer
validation. Al has and always will continue to be my favorite recruiter.
He is honest and forthright. Unlike many recruiters out there, he
technically knows what he is talking about and you always feel he
has your best interests at heart. He never pressures
you to accept any position that you do not feel is right for you.
He has moved me from a lowly college graduate to management (sometimes
I'm not so sure I should thank him for that) in a mere 10 years
time. I would recommend Al to anyone who is looking for a position
that is satisfying and fulfills their needs.
you for your expertise in career management. I have experienced
many recruiters who are just making connections to make sales numbers.
Al, not only do you match an individual's talents with a company's
needs; your talents are truly grounded in listening to career goals
and matching them with solid opportunities. When I recommended you
to colleagues I mention this difference; you're not a recruiter
but a career manager.

I was looking to make a career switch from consulting engineering
to manufacturing engineering, which was a major milestone in my
life and my working career. I couldn't have asked for a friendlier,
more professional person than Al Daum to aid me during this stressful
time. Al supported me for the entire job search, always providing
me with sound and timely job search advice. Many job search professionals
contacted me and I quickly learned that only a few could measure
up to Al's professionalism. He is highly capable of matching the
right job candidate with the right job and thus not wasting time
trying to put "square pegs" in "round holes".
Al prepared me for my interviews extremely well. He furnished
me with valuable insight about the clients needs and their personalities,
which enabled me to better prepare for many interviews. I highly
recommend Al for any professional who is considering a job change
or is between jobs and is looking for that next great opportunity.
His many years of experience combined with his tenacious effort
towards my search enabled me to land the opportunity of a lifetime
for which I am very grateful.

I would like to thank you for your assistance in my career search
for a new position in process control engineering. Your honesty,
advise, professionalism, and willingness to do what it takes to
help others looking for a new position was, in my opinion, the
most gratifying experience I have ever had in any of my job searches
throughout my career. It is not surprising to me that the great
companies, especially within the process industry, seem to rely
on your expertise along with your candidate's for filling their
critical positions. Your website was an additional bonus because
of the wealth of information that it provides, containing interviewing,
re-location, and resignation strategies. Working with you has
been not only exciting, but a pleasure, knowing that you possess
nothing but the utmost integrity for providing both candidate's
and employer's with winning combinations.
