Once a technology resume goes public, many job inquiries come through. I would say only about 30% of those calls are worth a follow-up. When I first spoke with Rob Reeves at Redfish, I expected an impersonal 5 minute conversation. Instead, Rob was very thorough and asked all the right questions. Rob understands the specifics of what his clients are looking for and was able to quickly match my skill-set with a fantastic opportunity. I am extremely grateful for Rob’s diligence; he placed me with a company that fit the culture, technology, and goals I was looking for. Thanks!” – Christopher Geheran
