“I wanted to you let you know how much I appreciated your help in placing me in a new position with RR Donnelley. The speed with which you were able to make this happen was incredible. Your quick follow up and attention to details made this an easy transition for me and for my employer. In addition to that, the time you took to prepare me for each step of the interview process was extremely helpful. I felt like I was knowledgeable about the interviewer’s needs and expectations well before meeting them. I have already referred people to you and will continue to do so.”
Karl Shibayama
“I’m excited to work with you on this position or any others that you are placing that I would be qualified for. You seem to one of the few recruiters I’ve dealt with that ‘gets it’ and are willing to dig a little further than the words on the paper to understand what a candidate can really bring to your clients.”
Chuck Cain
“I just wanted to thank you for everything you did for me while I was interviewing with Von Hoffmann. Your hard work resulted in a fantastic job offer from Von Hoffmann, which I have accepted. Your follow-up, thoroughness, and strong communication made the transition as smooth as any I’ve had. It was a pleasure working with you, and I look forward to staying in touch. Thanks again for all your help!“
Todd McGarity
“Well, it has been nearly a year and a half in my new position and I am still so very grateful to you and your hard work placing me. Wow! What a great company – never have I been treated so well. Even now, I look forward to going into the office every day. I work with a remarkable staff and I have a wonderful boss. The people here are not just my co-workers, but they have become my friends. I truly could not have asked for a better place to land!”
Jessica Becker
“I owe Dana more than I could ever repay to her for finding me and matching me up with best career opportunity I could ever have wished for. I was extremely impressed at how well Dana understood the position and the company and how well my skills matched the job requirements. One by one, Dana checked off each item on my ‘Wish List’ of the perfect job. Dana prepared me very well for the interview and I knew she had my best interest in mind at all times.

Dana is at a level all to herself in the recruiting business. I’ve never met anyone with the scruples and integrity and genuine heart that Dana has. She impressed me at every step.

Thank you again, Dana! This opportunity would never have happened if it hadn’t been for you.”
Amanda Stapp

“….Dana has a delightful, gregarious personality. She always treated me with respect and courtesy, not like a commodity as some recruiters do. I highly recommend Dana to other candidates and to employers.”
Diane Wiley
“Dana was very professional and thorough during our first meeting and all the way through the process of me finding a job at Playboy Enterprises. I would recommend Dana Kowen as a recruiter for not only myself, but anyone on their next career change.“
Ron Welin
“Dana is a consummate professional and a wonderful person. I can – without reservation – recommend her as an exceptional executive recruiter.“
Mark Berry
“After over six months in my new position, I am pleased to still be able to tell you how thankful I am for your help in my recent job change. I was particularly impressed by how you actively and aggressively pursued the opportunity with EHS, while dealing with very challenging schedules and deadlines on both sides. You did this with sensitivity and humor, along with empathy and understanding, carefully balancing both parties’ interests.

I have had past experience with recruiters who place people and never appear again. Quite the opposite is your style of checking in on a frequent basis to ensure job satisfaction on my part and that my company is please with my progress as well. I appreciate the positive feedback and continued communication. It has been a pleasure working with you. Your professionalism coupled with your personal touch is a perfect combination and I look forward to our on-going relationship.”
