To Whom It May Concern:

SUBJECT: PROFESSIONAL REFERENCE - MIKE YAROCH

The purpose of this letter is to formally introduce you to an outstanding supplier of recruiting services - Mike Yaroch.  Mike has supplied recruiting services to our company for the last eight (8) years; filling nearly 30 positions from entry to executive levels.  

When I first began doing business in Detroit, I brought with me my own list of recruiters that I had known and trusted for many years.  I was not interested in new recruiters.  However, during one of his "cold calls", Mike impressed me so much that I scheduled a formal meeting which led to a long term business relationship.

Why should you choose Mike over all the others? He possesses the following qualities:
-    Honesty - you can bank on his word.
-    Customer focus - whether he fills one or 50 jobs with your company, he treats you like you are his most important customer.  
-    Speed - jumps on an order "yesterday" and tirelessly "dogs it" until complete.
-    Low pressure - does not phone you constantly for new business.
-    Positive attitude - never has a bad day.
-    Diverse - has filled Accounting, Engineering, I.T., Materials, Human Resources, General Management, and other positions for us - he is a "one-stop-shop".

As you can see, I highly recommend Mike as a resource to your business.  Please contact me any time for additional information.

Sincerely,

Scott L

Dear Michael,
It's without hesitation that I submit to you this letter of reference, for your outstanding work in managing our account over the past 2 years.
First and foremost, your exceptional professionalism has been very refreshing relative to the many recruiters I've utilized in the past 20 years. Taking the time to fully understand our open positions, the personality profile we seek, our company culture, department vision, and the environment of the homecare medical industry, led to the success of recruiting solid candidates. With your expertise, we've filled our open positions with outstanding individuals and created bench strength.

Second, as a result of your screening practices, we wasted little time internally combing through candidates. Staying on course with your recruiting strategies proved beneficial in identifying more than one top notch candidate for hire, just in case our primary candidate declined our offer.

Lastly, managing our account with the right amount of interaction and follow-up, including the interaction with our human resource staff and potential candidates, seems fundamental, but important and appreciated as everyday business is often filled with other priorities. I've received unsolicited feedback regarding favorable interactions with you from other associates and new
employees we have hired through you. This is unusual but understandable, given your positive attitude and professionalism that is clearly differentiated in your field.

Michael, I wish you continued success and I will continue to promote your services within my network of business professionals. Feel free to distribute this letter to potential clients.
Sincerely,
Jeffrey C.

LETTER OF INTRODUCTION AND REFERENCE

From: Jennifer R
VP, Corporate Human Resources

Subject: Letter of Introduction and Reference
Drivesol Worldwide is pleased to offer this letter of reference for Michael Yaroch, National Account Manager.
I have worked exclusively with Michael since early 2000 and have hired multiple candidates on a yearly basis through his efforts. His ability to recruit in a plant manufacturing environment and in a corporate environment has been very valuable to us. We have often asked him to switch gears or take on multiple search assignments at the same time, which he did superbly.

Before our company was bought, Michael was my main recruiter at Teleflex Automotive. There was a period of time during the transition to our new ownership where Teleflex was up for sale. However, we still needed some key individuals for some critical roles. Michael was able to overcome this potential candidate objection to secure excellent professionals for these key positions.

I have been extremely satisfied with the high caliber of his services. He researched our company and industry thoroughly and developed a professional and systematic recruiting strategy and applies it to our organization appropriately. He is well versed in the needs of our company, its culture and philosophies. I can fully entrust him with sensitive and confidential searches, where an employee might still be in the role. Many times his searches have produced multiple superior candidates, giving us the opportunity to have a strong #2 and #3 candidate, all extremely capable.

Michael is an experienced recruiter who is committed to identifying and securing the best candidates available for the position. I would not hesitate to use his services for any recruiting assignment, regardless of the position type or industry. I plan to continue using his services and expanding his role in our recruiting needs.

I recommend Michael for all of your employment and hiring needs.

"Mike is a hard working, out of the box individual who really understands how to network and make things happen. He is an expert at developing key relationships with decision makers and goes out of his way to succeed in all that he does. He first contacted me in 2004. At that time, I did not know Mike at all and was very comfortable in my position at a fortune 500 Tier 1 supplier. He presented and engaged my interest in an opportunity at a smaller private company. He successfully placed me at Eagle Ottawa as a Financial Analyst. I'm proud of that transition and the experience I gained there. Without question, that career move was critical to my current success and is something that I would have not gone after, had it not been for Mike. He has demonstrated to me several times his professionalism, charisma and integrity which is exactly why I still have an active relationship with him. I would recommend Mike to anyone who wants to have a true leader on their side."
