“Ross Campbell is a consummate professional who has now filled 6 out of 6 roles. In all cases, they only presented top-tier candidates… We’ve been thrilled with all of the candidates… IQP has had exceptional success with our regional recruiting.  I had tremendous difficulty recruiting for Moncton, North Bay and Orleans (these files were open for months with no luck).  Once I turned the files over to Ross, his firm produced exceptional candidates within 1-3 business days.” – Corporate Recruiter
