“Throughout my career I have worked with many recruiting firms and my experience working with Leah and Redfish technology was by far the best experience I’ve had.  During the screening process they were able to quickly assess my skills and identify an opportunity that quickly became my top prospect.  I was looking for an opportunity that united my desire to sell software with my deep experience selling within the public sector. Comcate was the perfect fit.  While other recruiting firms are good at identifying the right opportunity, few recruiters are helpful in coaching you toward success. Leah was able to offer spot on advice at each junction inthe recruiting process that contributed to me landing a position with Comcate. Five months after joining the team at Comcate I can say that Redfish identified a solid fit with a company where I am extremely happy.” — Justin McDaniel
