S.D. Kelly & Associates

~Career Management Services~

"Susan is not only a phenomenal recruiter, but also an excellent career coach. She has assisted me in navigating through my career for nearly six years, and I attribute my success to her guidance and encouragement. From the first meeting I had with her, Susan was dedicated, persistent, and professional. Her confidence and intelligence made me immediately feel as though I made the right choice in approaching her for her services. I initially consulted Susan during a time in my life when I wasn't exactly sure what I wanted out of my career. Susan helped me to identify my goals, my strengths, and areas requiring improvement. She assisted me in building a strong resume, improving my interview skills, in addition to preparing me for the negotiation process. Susan is honest and thoughtful, and I trust her completely. She is one of the most sincere and genuine people that I have ever worked with. She truly cared about putting me on the right career path and was not satisfied until I was. I am grateful to have worked with Susan, and highly recommend her to all others. Susan, keep up the excellent work!"

~Retained Search & Recruiting Services~

"I have known Susan since 2003 and have used her services as retained recruiter for a number of searches. Through these business dealings, I have found Susan to be the most impressive recruiter I have ever seen. Her interviewing techniques used for pre-screening candidates are superb. I dare anyone to match her completeness in this process. Her attention to detail and her ability to get to the relevant information for her clients is unmatched. Her process for systematically scouring the industry, unearthing new leads and reporting progress to clients is excellent. And watching the development of her critical networks - networks that could be essential to fulfill a future search - has been a personal lesson for me. I have been completely pleased with the candidates I have hired through Susan's searches. And now, nearly seven years after our first meeting, I consider Susan to be more than just a recruiting service, but now a friend and confidant."

"Susan did a wonderful job helping me fill a difficult position. She was very professional each step of the way, knowing when to bend, when to push back, and when to throw up her hands and move on. She understands the emotional side of the business very well and strives to guide each party to a good result. Her style is high integrity and hands on."

"I've worked with a number of external executive search agencies over the years, and my best experience from the standpoint of the quality of the candidates has been with Susan Kelly. I have worked with her to fill a couple of positions, and in both cases I was being highly selective. Susan is very professional and knowledgable of the needs of her clients."

"I recently had the pleasure of working with Susan Kelly in pursuit of a new career opportunity in the electronics industry. By far, Susan is the best, most professional recruiter that I have encountered to date. From start to finish, Susan was a knowledgeable coach, timely, clear communicator and excellent representative of my qualifications. She was able to match my expertise with a management opportunity that was a perfect fit for my background. As my search continues, I truly hope that I will have the chance to work with Susan again. I would recommend Susan to any company looking for a retained recruiter. She has the intuitive ability to quickly analyze, identify and match middle and senior management candidates to your needs and produce results that will exceed your expectations."
