Jay Heino helped me land a manager role at a Fortune 100 firm in 2013. I find that most recruiters lack basic communications skills particularly listening. In fact, I generally refuse to take calls or emails from recruiters, the majority of whom I believe are too pushy and will go to great lengths to complete a deal.
Working with Jay, on the other hand, was a breath of fresh air. I agreed to speak with him solely on a recommendation from a mutual contact. I couldn’t have been more pleased with the process and with the result. He listened carefully to my needs, wants, and career goals and came back with a handful of recommendations, all of which I considered solid positions. He guided me through the interview, offer, and negotiation stages with patience. I do not view him as a recruiter, but rather a career consultant.
It is for the above reasons that I give Jay a 5-star rating and recommend his services to those looking to make strategic career transitions.
