Esquire Success Stories
Esquire Recruiting went above and beyond what one would normally expect from a recruiting agency. I had the pleasure to work with Amy Altman. It was clear from the beginning that her goal wasn’t to quickly fill any position for which I was qualified but to find the perfect fit for me. Amy’s attention to detail, responsiveness, and support made the entire recruiting process run smoothly. I am deeply appreciative of her arduous work! I highly recommend Amy and Esquire Recruiting.
As a Human Resources Manager, I have had the opportunity to work with many Recruiters. I have had the experience from both sides of the table, as a Hiring Manager and as a Candidate. My experience with Esquire Recruiting and Scott Fischer was as a candidate. Scott was a total professional. He kept me in the loop throughout the process. He made sure I met with the proper people, he was prepared during the screening process kept me engaged from contact to offer and post-hire follow up. Since my arrival at my new job, I have had the opportunity to meet with other members of our organization that came to us via Scott and Esquire Recruiting. From an HR standpoint, staffing is not just finding someone with the needed skills but also finding that proper candidate that will fit within your team personality and organizational philosophy. This is a skill that by all evidence, they excel.
Esquire Recruiting is by far the best recruiting agency I have ever dealt with! Scott Fischer was an absolute pleasure. He’s very pleasant and easy to work with. You can clearly see that Scott loves doing what he does. The things I liked most about working with Esquire was the transparency, the thoroughness throughout my entire interview process, and the level of professionalism. The feedback sessions were phenomenal, very prompt and informative. Upon receiving my offer letter Scott was just as, if not more, excited than I was! This just goes to show the level of care and commitment that he puts into his candidates. I am now settling into my new position at a company that I think will be my forever home. I am so grateful to have met Scott and been given this opportunity. I am truly grateful and would recommend Esquire to anyone who is currently in the job market.
Esquire Recruiting is hands down one of the best recruiting firms I have ever worked with. Laura McDermott was extremely considerate, professional and straight to the point during the entire process. In my history of working with other recruiters, I have found them to be vague about the search, not clear whether it was a contract or permanent position and difficult to work with. Laura partnered with me through the entire process and made me feel at ease immediately. She showed confidence in me despite my work experience falling short of the client company’s job requirements. Laura’s follow up was incredible as she prepared me for the interview and followed up afterward. Laura was the only recruiter who is competent in her role and who helped me get the job that I absolutely love. I highly recommend this agency and the professional talents of Laura McDermott.
I love my job and am so happy for the efforts made on my behalf by the wonderful staff at Esquire Recruiting.
Scott Fischer was a lot of fun to work with from the word go. He brought enthusiasm with every call and detail. It was so easy to take a call from him because of his energy. I confided in Scott and trusted him. I’m excited about my new position and I thank him for reaching out to me. Thank you, Scott, for making the process easy.
After months of combing through opportunities that just didn’t seem to be the right fit, Amy Altman came into my life. After explaining my dream role, she not only met my requirements but exceeded my expectations. She took the pressure out of the entire employment experience and matched me with the perfect company. I am so grateful, and I will continue to recommend this company to everyone I meet.
Throughout my entire job search, Scott and the folks at Esquire Recruiting were honest, communicative and extraordinarily helpful. It was clear from the beginning that Scott had a firm grasp on the legal industry and was intent on developing a thorough understanding of my personal skills and experience. His responsiveness and candidness made the process as stress-free as possible.
Amy and Scott at Esquire were so wonderful and supportive to work with. They were very thorough with following up with the client on my behalf and helped the job searching process go as smoothly as possible. I recommend them!
I moved to Chicago from a country where recruiting firms showed little respect to job seekers. Esquire Recruiting has shown me that a different, more professional relationship can take place between a candidate and recruiting firm. I am grateful that Scott, as part of a talented team, took the chance to help a non-US citizen and provided me with the opportunity to get engaged in the professional world in a new city that I now am happy to call my home. It was a pleasure working with Esquire Recruiting as they are a very dedicated and professional team. I look forward to maintaining and building my relationship with Esquire. I highly recommend the services of Esquire Recruiting to both employers and job seekers.
Scott Fischer is one of the most diligent recruiters I have had the pleasure to work with. He was there to take my calls, my e-mails, and to address any other concerns I had throughout the entire process. He was very prompt. He helped me link up to an opportunity with the exact criteria I had provided and he never made me feel like I had to settle for anything less than I deserved. He was also very attentive to any reservations I had and helped me reach my decision by providing great resources as well as his own insight. It’s been a pleasure working with Scott and Esquire Recruiting and I owe them for helping me step up in my career.
Amy Altman is the best there is! She is professional, has integrity, and is incredibly helpful. A perfect cheerleader! Amy helped me to secure my new position, she was always quick to respond to any questions or concerns that came up while we worked together. Usually, job searches are so nerve-racking, but not when you work with a professional who has only your best interests in mind. Thank you again, Amy Altman and Esquire Recruiting.
I had the opportunity to partner with Scott while conducting a controller job search in the St Louis area. He was honest, engaging knowledgeable and most important, he listened. He listened to my wants and needs and was genuinely interested in understanding my strengths and deliverables. Scott took the time to prepare me through the entire interviewing process- he knew his client, the firm culture, the leadership team and every detail about the position. Scott not only worked with me through the interview process, he negotiated an outstanding offer. He is highly professional and I would recommend Esquire Recruiting to any professional job seeker. I look forward to working with him in helping build my new company’s bench strength.
Amy Altman was a pleasure to work with. From the beginning of the process through the end, Amy was very knowledgeable about the position and firm I interviewed with. She was there to answer any questions I had and guide me through the process; even through the Thanksgiving holiday! Amy is professional, cheerful and dedicated. I am incredibly excited about my new position and cannot thank Amy and Esquire Recruiting enough for thinking of me for the position.
Scott is a true professional at what he does. He cares about his customers and is willing to take those extra steps needed in the spirit of great service. He connects with people and does an excellent job solving both personal and professional needs.
Scott is an absolute pleasure to work with, very professional, friendly, and an excellent communicator. A great person to work with to help find the next step in your career!
It was truly a pleasure to work with Scott at Esquire Recruiting. He was incredibly responsive, fast, and efficient, and you can tell that he really cares about his job seeking candidates. He provided very helpful advice in prep and follow-up calls, and I felt like I was in great hands throughout the whole process. This is one of the best experiences I have had with a recruiter. I highly recommend Esquire Recruiting to other job seekers.
Working with Amy was a pleasure! She made my job transition seamless. From day one she was extremely detailed and responsive. She kept me updated on progress and always made herself available. I am beyond thrilled with my new position and was fortunate to work with someone I I felt truly has my best interests in mind.
Scott’s constant focus is providing excellent service to both clients and candidates. In the world of recruiting, one must constantly change and adjust with the needs of the clients and candidates – Scott does so with ease. His work ethic set the bar high for everyone in the office. It never ceased to amaze me how Scott could always find the perfect client/candidate match every time.
Laura’s professionalism and expertise absolutely make her stand out from the crowd. She coached me by giving career advice, interview tips, and is someone I will turn to for HR and recruiting needs in the future. She is not only trustworthy, consistent, and reliable, but she is also personable and someone who is with high integrity.
Laura was on top of her job in trying to locate a position for me. She always communicated with me daily to let me know where the position I was applying for stood. She was very professional, yet very inviting with an infectious personality. She was always a woman of her word. She was very honest and upfront with me at all times.
I usually avoided interacting with recruiters but my experience with Esquire was different. Amy Altman demonstrated exceptional follow-up skills which was greatly appreciated. I am grateful I had the opportunity to work with her and am thrilled with my new job.
Working with Amy and Scott was a pleasure. There was never a time when I did not feel as if they had my best interest at heart. Way different than other agencies. These guys care about the candidates they work with. Such a great experience. Thank you!
Esquire Recruiting has been the best recruiting company I’ve ever come across. Laura was so great to work with! She was extremely attentive to my questions and concerns. Before I came across Esquire, I told myself I’d never go through a recruiting agency again but Esquire made it all worth it. I’m 6 months into my position and I love it! I can’t thank Laura McDermott enough!
In my experience over 20 years, I have generally had a negative feeling about the recruiters I have worked with. It seems that they look at me as strictly money in their pocket. And if you don’t land the job, you never hear from them again. Amy Altman and Esquire are a completely different story. Amy was awesome to work with! She not only was professional and honest, she really seemed to care about me, her client. She kept me completely informed during the process and was very supportive and honest. I hope I don’t have to work with her again (meaning, I hope I stay at the role she helped me secure for a long time!). If I do find myself looking for a new job, Amy and Esquire will be my first call. I highly recommend Amy and Esquire!!
Esquire Recruiting posted the ideal position, and I jumped at it. They arranged an online screen followed by in-person interviews and the whole process of applying for the job to an offer completed within a week and a half! As I was moving from a different city, they were attentive to understanding my needs and expectations and coordinating with the firm’s HR Director on meeting their needs as well. Amy Altman and Scott Fischer were transparent and communicated regularly, so I knew where I stood. I had never worked with a recruiter, and the process ran very smoothly. They even stayed in touch after the offer and after the job started. I definitely had a good experience working with Esquire Recruiting!
I’ve been working with Amy Altman for the past few months to help me secure a new job. From day one, she was extremely attentive, honest, and extremely helpful. She really cares about her clients, was available at ANY TIME to have prep and follow up phone calls with me. She kept me well informed and really advocated for me throughout the entire process. I can’t thank Amy and the Esquire team enough for all the hard work they put in on my behalf!
It was a pleasure working with Amy Altman and the Esquire Recruiting team during my job search process. I cannot speak highly enough of Amy’s transparency, responsiveness, advice, and dedication to ensuring I found the right fit. I felt comfortable asking her any question at any time, and she helped ensure I was fully prepared ahead of each interview. It’s clear she and her team have their fingers on the pulse of the legal industry and job market. I would definitely recommend Amy and Esquire Recruiting to those looking for their next move in the legal industry.
I can honestly say that I was super impressed by Amy Altman with Esquire Recruiting. Originally, we started working together in pursuit of a position. I interviewed and it seemed to go really well, but then the company ghosted us. I know I was disappointed and Amy was disappointed. I told her that if she came across something that fit what I was looking for, to reach out. Two months later, Amy messaged me. She had another opportunity. This opportunity is my job that I have now, that I love. Throughout the interview process, Amy stayed in constant contact with me, offering to help me prepare for the interviews. She would liaise with the HR department at the firm to make sure the interview process fit into my schedule. Prior to an interview, she’d send an agenda, so I could prepare and become familiar with those I would be meeting. One of her colleagues had someone interviewing for the same position, so she even provided questions they had asked that candidate. My interview process was over the holidays, which caused disruption. Amy would check in with me to let me know if she had or hadn’t received news, since she knew I was wondering. She would also regularly reach out to the firm’s HR department on my behalf. When the offer letter did come in, she made sure I had thoroughly reviewed all documents and took all required steps to accept the offer. Due to benefits coverage, I actually requested if they could move my start date, which she’s negotiated with HR. I normally wouldn’t have liked having a middleman, but I knew that Amy always had my best interest in mind.
Thank you to Laura and Scott!! I appreciate all that you have done for me as It is incredibly rare to find agencies, recruiters and most of all just people who take every opportunity to engage with others. You both have made my experience a joyful and memorable one. I understand that I am a reflection of your company and I will do my best to always reflect that image. Again, thank you both for having the faith in me and for playing a part in me getting this great job. You both were part of the puzzle.
Amy Altman was a great help in my hiring process, and was there every step of the way. Her willingness to answer any questions I had and provide feedback during the interview process was invaluable. It was a real pleasure working with Amy and the Esquire team!
I had nothing but positive experiences working with Scott through Esquire. From the start, he clearly understood my career goals and helped me find the perfect fit with a great company. Additionally, he was very responsive and personable throughout the process. I would recommend this recruiting agency to anyone looking for a more individualized approach to their job search.
It was a pleasure working with Laura McDermott. This was my first experience working with a recruitment firm, but I believe Esquire has set the bar pretty high. Laura is friendly, organized, and communicates efficiently. She never kept me in the dark about my candidacy throughout the process and always went above and beyond to make herself available to me. Laura was very helpful in matching my skills to this new career opportunity, in preparing me for all of my interviews, and in helping me to frame myself with such professionalism and creativity. She offered a lot of helpful advice for communicating my concerns, skills, and questions to the firm. She was extremely encouraging and maintained such a genuine, positive energy–I felt like she was more than a recruiter. I am thankful she identified me for this opportunity and look forward to this career change!
Shay and Scott were so amazing from start to finish of the hiring process! They were very informative, encouraging and were always willing to answer any questions I had. The whole process took about two weeks, and I believe that was in large part due to their diligence. Thank you, Shay and Scott, for all of your hard work, I truly appreciate it!!
Scott and Shay of Esquire Recruiting helped me make a lateral move in my career field, helping me to secure a position at a top-tier firm that I never dreamt I could be considered for. They helped me realize my value within the industry and maximize my earning potential and room for growth in my new role. They were a pleasure to work with from start to finish and I’m so glad that I was able to connect with them!
“Thanks so much to Laura McDermott for reaching out to me for this position. It was nice being contacted by phone; her constant and prompt communication between me and the employer was vital.”
