“I have now worked with Logan Knight in both roles. One where he was helping me get a job and now when he is helping me recruit. Working with Logan has always been refreshing and a great pleasure. He is to the point, straight forward and professional. In the first attempt he matched my profile to a position that fit me like a glove and allowing me to apply my true potential. He has the expertise to match people to the right job requirements and we do not spend anytime following up and exploring possible fits with candidates who do not fit our requirements.” – Sharad Ahlawat
