Ryan is fantastic and this agency is a godsend. He follows up with me after every interview and sends me frequent weekly updates so even when I forget, he is on top of it! He is very thoughtful in his screening process and has only presented us with stellar candidates that match what we are looking for. I highly recommend Career Blazers Nonprofit Search for your hiring needs.

Human Resources Director, Economic Empowerment and Social Justice Organization 

What a pleasure to work with Barbara and Cindy in resolving our post-pandemic staffing needs. After unsuccessful attempts to recruit staff for our schools using online resources left us frustrated and in despair, we were referred to Career Blazers by a mutual business contact.

A huge difference-maker in my opinion was that they came to meet with us face-to-face. I believe that this personal touch afforded them an intimate feel for our organization and how best to present us as prospective employer to potential candidates. Less than a month later, we were provided with four candidates who were not only available, but interested in working for us. I can’t say enough about the professional level of personalized service we received. Based on these immediate and positive results, I cannot hesitate to say, they are the best recruiters I have ever dealt with.

Executive Director & CEO, Educational Nonprofit

I have worked with Barbara for about 15 years, first on various committees, then as a board member and part of our executive leadership team. She provided insight in board recruitment, identified candidates, conducted interviews and onboarded new board members. Barbara is dedicated to whatever project she is working on she does it with great pride and enthusiasm. It has always been a privilege for me to work with her because her compassion for everything she does is contagious to all those around her.

Regional VP, Health Organization

I have depended on Barbara Gebhardt’s human resources experience in staffing for my business as well as in my board leadership roles. She has always taken the time to describe the process of getting the right person in place. Recently UCP conducted a search for an Executive Director and I know I relied on some of those experiences while participating in the interview process with my colleagues.
