Real Results: Candidate Stories That Inspire

After getting laid off from a previous job, I got in contact with Mark. I was more or less desperate of employment, and Mark not only found me a job very quickly, but it turned out to be an upgrade over my previous position. In general, I am not very fond of recruiters, but Mark is an exception. I don’t feel like I am being pestered all the time, or pressured. Highly recommended!

During the job boom of Y2K, lots of recruiters were contacting me, but Mark was the ONLY one to actually listen to what wanted in a position, and worked to find it for me.

I’ve worked with a number of recruiters over the years and have been disappointed in their level of attention and commitment even after promises of being different. Mark was truly different. He took the time to get to know me and understand my goals. He provided pragmatic advice to help guide my decisions. I felt as though he was on my side and not just out to gain a quick commission. Mark helped me prepare by providing information and prep materials as well as a generous amount of his time. This helped give me the confidence to be successful during the interview process and confidence that I was making the right decision to achieve my goals. I would recommend Mark without hesitation and would happily use his services should they be needed in the future.

Mark is by far one of the most upstanding recruiters I have ever worked with. He takes the time to get to know his clients and candidates to get the best match for both. I would recommend him to everyone looking for a job. In fact, I have! If I needed to go through another job search, Mark would be the first person I would call.

Mark has been instrumental in helping me not only find great positions but in helping me decide how to keep my career on the right path for growth and opportunities. Mark has helped me further my career over the last 12 years, guided me toward obtaining my PMP, and furthering my education. Mark is keenly aware Cleveland business needs and he knows and is well respected by the key people in the Cleveland business communities. I highly recommend Mark and Emerald Resource Group.

Mark is a great person. He worked very hard to get me a job in a reasonable time frame. He is very knowledgeable of the companies in Northern Ohio and understands the job market. He placed me in a great job in a good city that suits my personality, work ethics.

Daniel Feistamel IT Development Team Lead at Progressive Insurance

Mark is one of the best recruiters I ever worked with. When I was looking for a job, Mark invested a lot time to build relationship with me and understand my skills, inspiration, strengths and goals. When I was working for a company that was looking to hire new IT professionals, Mark spent considerable amount of time trying to understand the quality of the ideal candidates my company was looking for before submitting any resumes. I never knew what made Mark so successful until I worked with him on both sides. It is always a pleasure to work with Mark and he is the first recruiter I think about when I am on the job market looking for the next opportunity.

Mark was a huge help to me when it came to landing my next position. He encouraged and guided me through. He is an excellent recruiter!

I know that it was because of the effort of Mark Krusinski that I was able to be interviewed and hired at Sherwin-Williams. When I was first looking for a new job someone else from Emerald Resource Group found me and told me about the offer at Sherwin-Williams. But after a few phone screens, I didn’t hear anything for over a month. I had given up hope of working for Sherwin-Williams when I got a call from Mark. He apologized for the lack of communication. He was able to get me re-engaged with Sherwin-Williams and worked with Sherwin-Williams to help me get the type of job that best suited my talents and abilities. I know that without the work Mark did, that I probably would not be working at Sherwin-Williams today.

I have had the great fortune of knowing Mark since 1993, when he helped me make the first of two pivotal career moves. Since then, Mark has worked hard to keep in touch with me to understand my goals and abilities. Mark puts an extraordinary amount of thought into each opportunity before discussing it with a candidate. I have always appreciated that he doesn’t waste anyone’s time with something that’s not a win-win situation. Without hesitation, I highly recommend taking advantage of Mark’s strength in building long term relationships to bring the right people to the right opportunities.
