“I had the pleasure of working with Eric Handler when he headed up a challenging search for a key person on my marketing team. Eric and his team were amazing to work with in many regards -- professionalism, extraordinary communications, value-added involvement, keen insights, and coaching. The candidate assessments we received from Handler prior to our interviews were fantastic. Ahead of meeting with candidates I felt as if I already knew them on many different levels. Moreover, I was overwhelmed by the number of extremely high quality candidates which Handler’s process yielded. The experience was an A+ all the way around and I'd highly recommend Handler & Associates and their services!”

“It is my pleasure to provide the following testimonial regarding the professional partnerships between PotashCorp and Handler & Associates. Throughout the partnership, you and the Handler team consistently partnered with us to identify and attract the necessary talent for PotashCorp. The many searches encompassed positions at varying levels within the organization. Consistently, you not only identified the technical requirements but you ascertained the cultural attributes necessary for a truly successful search. Furthermore, you identified and presented candidates that possessed the desired competencies needed beyond the immediate requirement, what I call “bench strength. ”
