Zaharo - you're absolutely incredible! Seriously, I can't say it enough. In my last ten years working with executive recruiters, you're hands-down one of the best, if not THE best. The way you presented the role was truly exemplary. It's remarkable how you were able to source my profile for this unique opportunity. Initially, I didn't see an immediate fit, but when you explained what the role actually entailed, I had a moment of realization— 'Wait... this sounds like an incredible fit!'" Your follow-through, support, and the overall experience were unmatched. It was truly accretive, and one of the key reasons I leaned towards your client and accepted their offer over others. Thank you for making this journey extraordinary.
Zaharo becomes your "right hand" person through the recruitment process - she checks in often, truly gets to know her clients' needs, and builds genuine relationships as she plays matchmaker. I was so impressed with the level of care she has for each role and candidate. She is simply wonderful!
Zaharo is an incredible resource and undoubtedly an expert on everything related to Chiefs of Staff. She was truly my "right hand" in finding a new position and helped me secure my dream job. I cannot thank her enough! I would highly recommend any employer or Chief of Staff to work with Zaharo.
Zaharo was an incredible resource during my interview process. She made a point to share any and all knowledge she had that would assist me in the process, and suggested ways for me to prepare for each interview round. She remained supportive and optimistic the entire time, and it was a pleasure to work with her.
Zaharo works tirelessly. I received private coaching, including weekend preparation before the next interview during the week. Without Zaharo, I wouldn't be in a position that I could have only dreamed of landing!"
