Michael is one of the best professional recruiters that I have ever worked with. His detailed knowledge of the job opportunity, the company that is hiring and the personalities that one may interact with during the interview process, enabled me to be very prepared and successful in winning the position.

I recently had the opportunity to work with Michael Ekegren when he represented me in a highly competitive search to fill a Regional Vice President position for a software company. I found Michael to be extremely knowledgeable of the client’s requirements, priorities and hiring culture, which was very useful in navigating the interviewing/hiring process and minimizing stress. He was efficient and thorough in scheduling all interactions, provided excellent suggestions/feedback for interviews, and made certain that the offer negotiations proceeded smoothly. Michael was very professional and easy to work with and I would absolutely recomme... Read More »

Michael provided truly professional assistance to me in the past, finding me for a selling position opportunity, which I later accepted. Michael was truly effective and efficient in providing me the necessary assistance in evaluating and securing this new job position. I have already recommended Michael to a number of my associates. I strongly recommend that you contact Michael for any career changes that you may desire.

Michael is very professional and thorough throughout the entire recruiting process. Michael provides two way feedback at all stages so both the hiring organization and candidate have the information required for both parties to make an intelligent, informed decision. Michael stays plugged into the process while making sure the two parties are communicating directly in a productive manner. Michael realy knows how to introduce a candidate to a hiring firm and guide the process to a decision. Any company will benefit involving Michael in their hiring efforts.

I had the pleasure and good fortune to interact with Michael during a challenging period in which a soft market in the Northwest made the job search especially difficult. Michael was a high-energy, smart, creative recruiter who brought interesting opportunities for me to consider. He ultimately helped me land a job with a fun, industry leading company. Michael is a consummate professional who I recommend highly.

Michael is a patient and thorough recruiter. I was very explicit about what I was looking for in my next position and it's taken us a year to find the right fit! He clearly understood I was looking for something beyond the money and that I was looking for the right cultural fit. I highly recommend Michael to find the right people for the right job!

Michael is very knowledgeable, personable and easy to work with. He protects the interest and evaluates the depth of value in both the candidate and employer. Always factual to the point with great guidance. He truly gives the cliche "headhunter" great value in a positive way and is an excellent representative of the industry.

"
Michael contacted me regarding possible carrer choices in late 2009, but we could not find a fit for the positions he was working on filling. I expected that I would never hear from Michael again as has often been the case with recruiters over the years. To my surprise, Michael contacted me almost six months later with an opportunity that was well suited for my skillset and for which I eventually accepted. It is this attention to detail and diligence in servicing his clients that impressed me about Michael. He offered assistance at all steps of the process and was a good sounding board as I worked through the decision. Michael is committ... Read More »

Over the past five years I have never hesitated referring Michael to many of my associates. His professionalism, industry knowledge, and ethics made him stand out in a crowd. I found it very refreshing when my colleagues would report back to me with that same positive feedback on Michael. Recently, I found myself in the market for a position and I immediately reached out to Michael. What I respected most about his performance was, unlike many in his field, he communicated what "needed to be communicated" and not "what people wanted to hear". He has the ability to provide insight with a complete transparent honesty. I would strongly recom... Read More »

Michael is truly a sales professional in all aspects of his approach and execution model. I was truly surprised with the opportunity he continued to “sell” me on as I was investigating various sales opportunities. He never gave up on selling the opportunity he was representing while never too over bearing; yet he continued to articulate the value in my investigation and pursuit while it was not on the top of my list. He is committed to both the hiring company and candidate to ensure a win/win scenario while not compromising the personal relationship and professionalism throughout the process. There are many interesting dynamics in... Read More »

Michael is a results oriented and honest professional recuiter. Having been a recruiter myself, I am familiar with many dishonest recruiters that are out to make a quick dollar. Michael on the other hand is not that type of recruiter! He is honest, persistent, timely, and represents his clients (both candidates and companies) in a professional manner. I would highly recommend working with Michael to my colleagues and professionals seeking a results oriented recruiter!

I was extremely impressed with Michael's professionalism. In the past, recruiter's, of which I have both hired and used professionally, have failed to live up to their promises but Michael displayed great integrity and was very upfront, honest and prompt. I would definitely use Michael again.

I initially spoke with Michael over in mid 2006. At the time there was not an opportunity for us to work together, however, Michael kept in touch and an opportunity arose in 2007 that was a fit. Michael was a true professional through the whole opportunity and interview process. He did an excellent job of matching skills between individuals and organizations and communicated requirements and expectations very clearly. For a job hunter, Michael's skills with employer and future employee were invaluable during the whole process and I would highly recommend talking with Michael about opportunities that you may have!

Michael found me when I was not even looking for a new position yet. He did not push, he just introduced me to the opening he was filling for a client. It turned out to be a perfect fit for both me & the client. He didn't just try to find anyone to throw at the position, he really wanted it to be a fit for both the client & myself, the candidate. He showed integrity and professionalism in his desire to exceed the needs of both his clients, the company & the candidate. Highly recommended.
