More New Jobs Are in City Centers, While Employment Growth Shrinks in the Suburbs
A striking reversal in a trend that dominated the 20th century could have big implications for how people live and work in the decades ahead.

Walrath Recruiting took the time to meet with me, to get to know my personality and therefore placed me at a company with people who I truly get along with. From my 20 years in the business world I firmly believe that working with people that you truly like and who truly like you is priceless. I believe that Renee and the whole Walrath team take this seriously as well and therefor picked a position for me that they felt I would fit perfectly into and they did. I was desperate to find a job, I would have taken ANYTHING because money was running out fast and I not only have an excellent salary I have the best job so far in my career. Not only is my boss a wonderful human being he is also paying for me to go back to college for an Associates Degree in Accounting. What a BLESSING. I HIGHLY recommend Walrath Recruiting. God Bless and all the best for everyone out there who are in the shoes I once was, have faith, hang in there and get your butts to Walrath Recruiting today!

When I first came to Walrath Recruiting, I had an interview with one of Renee's people. It went very well, but I didn't hear back from them. I called and asked for updates, and they told me there was nothing available at that time. My wife also went to Walrath for assistance. She too has not heard anything back. I ended up finding something else, through another recruiter who happened to cold call me. Over a year and a half later, Renee emailed me a position where she felt I would be a good fit. This, to me is the benefit of having recruiters on your side. They build a portfolio of candidates, and work that portfolio as necessary. A recruiter is just that... a recruiter. They are not in the business of guaranteeing you a job. They are in the business of providing opportunities to qualified candidates. Some of the posts I'm reading here sound like sour grapes reviews. A job seeker is smart to spread their resumes across a wide variety of sources. Use many recruiters, good business social networking sites, shotgun effect your job applications etc. In the end, it's up to you, the job seeker to make yourself as marketable as possible. Recruiters can present the opportunity. They cannot guarantee you placement. To those who have written the very poor reviews, I suggest you polish yourselves to a brilliant shine before seeking employment. After all, it all starts and ends with us, and our presentation to the prospective employer. First impression is crucial. Renee came through for me. She remembered me and she gave me an opportunity, and its not because we're friends (we're not - I only know her as a business ally.) It's because I had something that was salable to her; enough that she did indeed remember me. That is why I'm giving Walrath the high score. I appreciate all she's done and will certainly refer anyone who also needs employment assistance to Walrath Recruiting.

Walrath Recruiting became such a great resource for me. I had to move from San Diego to New York, due to my husband being in the military, and was nervous that I would not find work in my career field very fast. I was recommended to Walrath Recruiting by another military wife and submitted my resume right away. That same day I got a call for an interview for the following day and sure enough they found me a job in my career field as a Business Analyst in less than a week! It has been two months now that I have been working with my new employer and I love it here. Walrath Recruiting knows what they are doing!

Had an initial phone interview, in-person and was assured "we have multiple positions in mind that you would be a great fit for"...that was over a month ago. Silence. I was warned by a friend prior to a working with them, that their followup and abilities are awful...should have listened. Go try another staffing place, such as Linium!
Response from the owner - a year ago
We are sorry to hear that you were unhappy with our services and apologize for not following up with you in a timely manner. If you would contact us directly we can look into your file and provide you with feedback about the particular position that we had in mind for you. In the recruitment industry the timelines to fill positions can vary greatly and are determined by the clients we work with; some jobs can be filled quickly while others, depending on the level of the position and the company it is for can take up to 18 months. The companies that we work with may pause the hiring process for a length of time but would still like to see potential candidates, may be doing some internal reorganization that can cause interruptions in the process, or have financial, management, business requirement changes, etc. that can completely stop the process in its tracks only to have it start back up in a few weeks. We commit ourselves fully to the recruitment of these positions and truly want to help both our candidates and our clients. We pride ourselves in the relationships that we build with both our clients and our candidates and communication is key to those relationships, we welcome contact from our candidates if they ever have questions.

Walrath Recruiting and Ms. Walrath are absolutely amazing! I received my graduate degree two years ago and have been looking for a professional position since then. Ms. Walrath and her staff are the first ones that have given me a real chance, really "stepped up to the plate and gone to bat for me" and refused to back down. After having been to three other staffing companies with little to no results I came to Ms. Walrath and she found me a professional position with a company in Albany, NY that I absolutely love! It has been truly a pleasure working with Ms. Walrath and her staff. I highly recommend Ms. Walrath and her staff to any looking for a professional position in the Capital District area.

I had an experience similar to some of the other reviewers. I took time out of my work day to have an initial meeting. I was assured that they had positions in mind for me, and that they would be in contact, however after that initial meeting there ceased to be further contact. I sent follow up emails and received no response. I initially chose Walrath Recruiting because they offered jobs centered around my skill set and I wanted to support a female-owned company. In the end, it proved to be an absolute waste of time.
