“John is redefining the Placement business. His counsel on hiring strategies and candidates have proven on the mark every-time. More importantly, his personal knowledge of what works and what doesn’t allowed us to focus on the right people.” President, Advertising Firm
“I have known John, as an excellent recruiting professional, since the mid-90’s. John ensures the best personal fit, which is way beyond just the best technical fit, and this makes him my first call when we need to ramp up on new positions. Once the person is placed, John makes sure that we are continually satisfied with the results! And ‘results’ are what we hire for.” Development Manager, Software Development Firm 
“I rarely (if ever) use recruiters to find candidates for my open positions. John Deen is an exception. His focus is on building relationships. His style is refreshing – in a world of in-your-face recruiters that you can’t politely get off the phone. John is networked and should be in everyone’s address book.” Internet Director, Major Hospitality Company
