I was immediately impressed with Destynne’s professionalism and level of understanding about the position. It was exactly the type of role I was looking for and after a few interviews, I was offered the job! I’ve worked with many recruiters over the course of my career and I can say from experience that she is definitely the best recruiter I have ever encountered! She consistently kept me in the loop throughout the whole process, prepping me for interviews, scheduling meetings, checking in on a regular basis and generally going above and beyond to make sure that it was a win-win for me and my new employer. She is a genuinely caring person who I will certainly stay in contact with going forward. Anyone would be lucky to get the chance to work with her so I highly recommend that if she calls…pick up the phone! “
