I’d like to thank you and your team for the support received in the recent job searches.  Your efforts to systematically identify candidates, pre-screen them and follow up throughout the interview process was impeccable, leading to 2 key hires in less than a month.  Most impressive was your “Checkster” report and the quick turnaround provided on these key documents.  Finally, your understanding and appreciation for the types of candidates that matched best to the positions was very much appreciated.
