    Kicking Off 2018 Right: Celebrating a Team-First Culture

    Each year, professionals and companies alike spend time closing out and reflecting upon the previous year and kicking off the next one. It's a time for reflection and renewal, candor and celebration, learning and planning. And at no time was this truer than within our own organization during the past two months.

  • Our Charlotte team was excited to partner with the Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina and Southern Tier Brewing Company to fill backpacks with food for kids so that they don't go home hungry on the weekends - in less than 2 hours, the team fed nearly 900 kids!

Consultant Testimonials

"Prompt responses to any concern or question that I have. It could be after hours but I have always gotten feedback from my recruiter faster than expected."

"Made my transition to consulting painless."

"I was impressed with the follow up as the position changed from the original Job posting. My recruiter worked with me and the hiring manager to ensure that my skill sets were positioned effectively so I got an interview (That's all it takes.) He went beyond my posted resume to see what I had to offer."

"I was interested in working for a company that originally passed me over for internal hires. Knowing that the company liked me, Kurt continued his efforts in getting me there and succeeded."

"I have been contracting for the last 7 years and this has been by far the smoothest transition and recruitment process. I am extremely happy with the commitment, response times and professionalism."

"I have had a very positive experience dealing with Eliassen. I previously was with another agency and did not receive the same level of personal attention and information as I have with Eliassen Group."
