Recently our firm was in need of an IT Director. After an exhaustive year long search with another agency that focused entirely on tech candidates, we found an ideal candidate through the efforts of Carol and her team. Our firm has always trusted the judgment of [The ONeil Search Group] to secure candidates that are the “right fit” for our particular culture and we have been consistently rewarded. Furthermore, Carol’s professionalism and insight about human capital has always eased the transition process for us. I’ve always found her and her team to be an absolute pleasure to work with no matter what the job.

“[The ONeil Search Group] is the first organization I think of when asked to recommend a recruiter to a client, colleague or friend. I’ve worked with [The ONeil Search Group] for years now, while searching for talent for a prestigious law firm. I know their resources are expansive and that every client is treated as the most valuable one. With a reputation for hard work and an aptitude for guiding career paths, Carol and her staff have an impressive record of successful placements. These same attributes have helped compile a loyal and satisfied client base in New York City.”

“I have worked with [The ONeil Search Group] for over 15 years in two different industries. Carol and her company are partners to their clients in every sense of the word. Having worked with many search firms over the years, Carol and her team are as good as it gets. They are proactive when it comes to their client’s needs. Carol’s individual approach is always creative. Often times, Carol will arrive at a solution to a hiring or staffing need that we would never think of ourselves. This is not something I have found to be common in the industry.

Additionally, the screening process for candidates is extremely rigorous. Having worked with Carol in two different industries I can tell you that [The ONeil Search Group] really works with individual companies and tries to place personnel within a firm that are a company match and not just a “job” match. I would and have referred Carol and her team to others. I believe Carol truly represents both the best interests of both her clients and her candidates –a very difficult act to balance!!”

“I think Carol O’Neil of [The ONeil Search Group] is excellent. I’ll tell anyone who’ll listen…! I’ve worked with her and members of her team on several searches at prior firms and know her quite well.”

“[Carol is] the most professional and insightful headhunter with whom I have ever worked. [Her] scrutiny and screening for Forum USA candidates has been spot on, and I know that I do not have to ever be concerned about [her] sending someone ill-suited for employment at the Forum. [Her] prompt responses to our urgent calls for attention and assistance in finding suitable candidates is nothing short of amazing! Please give my name to anyone you wish for my highest recommendation.”
