I have worked with a handful of recruiters and the folks at Cardea Group are by far the best! My experience with recruiters in Financial Services generally goes something like this: they contact you, tell you that you’re the perfect fit for a role, get you very excited with details about the position and talk of benefits and a big salary, and then you never hear from them again. At Cardea, they really take the time to work with and prep candidates. They request to meet with you face to face to discuss your goals, and really try to get a sense of who you are and what the best fit might be. The team is very professional and highly knowledgeable. They prep you ahead of each interview and give you a detailed rundown of each person you are going to meet with. Then, they make sure to have a debrief after each round of interviews.
I had the opportunity to work with Kim Autuori who is very thorough and incredibly reliable. Not only does she have an extensive network, she’s so personable and easy to work with. What’s more, she has an in-depth understanding of the industry and she’s very persistent. Kim is working just as hard as you, if not harder, to get you your dream job. What made her stand out to me most is her thoughtful approach. She cares about more than what’s on your resume, she values the importance of connecting with you and making sure you connect with any potential employers. She realizes that you’re looking for a new home! I truly only have positive things to say. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Kim and really hope to work with her again in the future!
