“Working with Jon and Leah was a truly pleasurable experience. From my initial call with Leah it was apparent she had done her homework and truly understood my skills and that they matched the position. Jon took the time to get to know me and it felt like he was on my side throughout the whole process. He was extremely responsive and it felt more like a friend recommending me for a job vs. the traditional recruiting experience. I would highly recommend Redfish whether someone looking for their first job or looking to make a change in their career!” — Kyle Raprager
