Testimonials about Anna R. Szymczak


    Anna is amazing. She reached out to me with the perfect job opportunity at the perfect time. She promptly communicated my interest to the new firm, helped me with my resume, set up my interviews, and guided me through the entire process, including interview prep and support. I had my second interview on the Friday before Chicago (and the nation) shut down due to Covid-19. The following week was a time of extreme uncertainty for everyone, and I was concerned that I wouldn't get the position at this new firm because of the global pandemic. Anna stayed in contact with me that entire first week of the shutdown and acted as a crucial line of communication between me and the new firm. By Thursday of that week, Anna called me and told me the firm was offering me a position. I was amazed at how quick she was able to secure the position for me during a global crisis when almost every business had implemented a hiring freeze! She was always available when I had questions and communicated with me daily. I am extremely happy with my new firm and couldn't be more excited about my future and career. At the time Anna reached out to me, I was in touch with 4 or 5 other recruiters, but none of them were as helpful and proactive as Anna. I would 100% recommend Anna for your recruiting needs, whether you're an employer or job seeker, casually looking or actively looking for new opportunities. She will help you every step of the way. Thank you so much, Anna!

  • I highly recommend Anna.  She recently helped me place at one of the leading practice groups of a large firm after a significant break in practicing law.  She proactively sought opportunities, advocated on my behalf, and offered great insight and guidance during the interview and negotiation phases.  I would encourage anyone interested in a transition to reach out to her immediately.
