“I was floored and thrilled by the caliber of talent options that Chandra presented. All the candidates for the role exactly met—and in some cases exceeded—my requirements and were wonderful culture fits. I can’t thank or recommend Chandra enough.” — Sean Evans, Editorial Director, Editorialist YX
“We had two positions to fill and each required a unicorn .an editor and writer who could understand deep health content but translate it into friendly but informative content that doesn’t terrify, or even worse, bore. The Talent Fairy worked her magic and delivered! She screened dozens, presented a short list of truly top candidates, and even scheduled the interviews. The process was seamless. Chandra provided insightful and incredibly helpful summaries of each candidate that went so much deeper than any resume. She worked tirelessly to find the absolute best person for each job — and she’ll do the same for you!” — Elizabeth Anne Shaw, Editor in Chief, HealthCentral.com
“We loved working with Talent Fairy. Chandra found great candidates, worked with us to create the best structure for evaluating our options, and worked in tandem with us each step of the way.” — Rachel Hofstetter, CMO, Chatbooks
