“extraordinary and exceptional”

I have worked with many search consultants on both sides of the hiring equation and in my work for HR consulting companies. So I feel well qualified to state that Melissa Brooks Jones goes about her business in an extraordinary and exceptional way one rarely encounters. In an era when incivility is considered an asset, and rudeness is justified by flimsy excuses, I am most pleased to have encountered someone who is able to do an excellent job of serving her client and her employer without abandoning the simple courtesies of business. She asks intelligent, challenging and effective questions, and actually listens to the answers. Melissa provides the most thorough description and background for an available position I’ve ever seen. She defines a schedule and sticks to it. And Melissa’s courtesy, warmth and interest in the candidate is very rare and very welcome.
