“I wanted to take a moment to let you know how impressed I am with the work [IQ PARTNERS] have done for TripAdvisor – -it’s truly difficult to put into words how much I value their work ethic, diligence, perseverance and ability to partner in a way that makes my life better each time I work with them. They are absolute professionals who are also able to build deep, strong relationships with candidates (and with me), which as you know is hard to come by in the recruiting world where the general attitude is often, ‘I’ll give you time when I need you.’

Since making the move from retained exec search to in-house, I have had to work with a number of outside agencies on a global basis. I can honestly say there is no other team that comes close to [IQ PARTNERS], whether the focus is on relationship-building, execution, or the pleasure of working with them. They know when to push, when to step back, when to offer advice, and when to take it. Their follow-up is seamless, and there has not been one time when they have addressed any issues that have come up with candidates immediately and with total dedication to finding an answer/solution.

I often tell people that they can do pretty much any search in the world – -any function, any location… because their expertise in recruiting and their willingness to get out there and dive into unknown territory is so impressive.

I’m a big fan of IQ PARTNERS and will always be ready to act as a reference if you have new potential clients who would like to hear about the wonderful experience of working with you. Thanks for everything!”

Julie Puckett, Global Executive Recruiter, TripAdvisor

 

“I’ve been very impressed with my interactions with the IQ PARTNERS team.  They are, by far, the most thorough, knowledgeable and engaging team I’ve worked with.  Above all I do feel like they understand what I’m looking for and truly care about their clients and candidate which is rare in this industry.”

“Thank you for taking time to get to know “the person” behind the resume.  As a potential candidate I know that the F2F approach that you and your firm invest in isn’t the standard approach but it makes obvious that you really value people, building relationships and ultimately making the right match!”

“My team expected the search to last up to six months due to our determination to find the perfect fit culturally. IQ PARTNERS spent an inordinate amount of time understanding us, our culture, and our needs for the position. We were incredibly impressed when they found us the right candidate in under 30 days – and it was the first person they brought to us. We will definitely be engaging IQ PARTNERS for our future team building needs.”

She provided useful information and was very personable. If the current opportunity being pursued does not materialize I would be happy to work with Carly-Anne again in the future.”

Manager, Strategic Communications and Events, Public Relations


“As Vice-President of Sales my most difficult task is building a team with the “right-fit” people. I have always relied on IQ PARTNERS to help steward this process and they have never let me down. The difference between them and many other executive search firms is their deep attention to detail in understanding of business needs. Working in technology places a great deal of challenge on our employees to have an ever changing adaptation to competitive advancements. To this end, IQ PARTNERS is the only firm that truly seeks out talented individuals that can make the necessary adjustments to get the job done. As our team continues to expand I will look toward IQ PARTNERS to help build upon a very successful team.”
