Candidate Testimonials

About The Park Avenue Group

Our Banking Recruiters and Medical Device Recruiters have received numerous accolades and testimonials from the candidates they have placed.  Here is a sampling of the rave reviews our recruiters are getting:

“Change can be difficult for anyone, however, Marc’s ability to present clear opportunities in an honest and precise manner made the entire process educational and quite honestly fun.”

Sheila G.

“Stacy is a well-connected professional with a broad network in the financial and banking industry. She helped facilitate the screening and interview process and negotiated a fair compensation package for me.”

Kurt K.

“This was a truly remarkable and unique experience. To me Marc is less like an employment recruiter and more like personal professional coach. I expect we will remain friends for a long time to come. I would send anyone I know and care about to Marc’s capable hands.”

Mike M.

“Stacy understood my need to find a position as soon as possible. She provided great interviews and was extremely professional when checking my references. She was exceptional, providing me with feedback on every interview. I have recommended Stacy and her firm to several of my associates.”

Belinda C.

“Her efforts attempt to match positions, skills, experience and needs on both sides of the transactional equation. She does not attempt to force a square peg into a round hole but rather invests the time and effort to understand the company, its needs, values, environment and culture and match those with the individual candidate attributes. Stacy's success comes from alignment of values and needs not filling gaps.”

Tim N.

“Stacy [Ethun’s] professionalism and detailed knowledge of the Banking industry provided invaluable guidance and support as I made a transition between companies. Due to her longevity within the industry, Stacy's broad network of contacts allowed us to review a wide range of opportunities during the process.”

Michael L.

“[Marc], thank you again for your assistance in convincing me to join your client. I was very impressed with your professionalism and knowledge of the company. …You made the entire process of investigating and accepting a new position a pleasure.”

Diane K.

“Stacy was able to find a company and a management team which was extremely compatible with my experience and career goals, and put me at ease throughout the entire process. She has a superb understanding of banking, and her connections and professionalism were invaluable during this time.”

Cara D.

“Before I connected with [Marc], my job search was merely productive. After connecting with [him], my job search went into overdrive. [He was] able to help me discover a job market within an industry of which I was previously unaware, and… matched my experiences and skill set to the needs of my current employer.”

This letter of recommendation is for Stacy Ethun Stevens President/CEO of  Park Avenue Group. I contacted Stacy in February 2012 because her name was recommended on-line, on various Bank recruiting websites. After contacting other recommended agencies with results such as "email me your resume" or "go to our website and create a profile" I was finally able to make human contact with Stacy and her recruiters Janice van Casteren and Justin Jelley. With Stacy and her team it was different. They took the time to speak to me on the phone to know exactly what I wanted and were quick with responses to your questions, whether it is e-mail, telephone, or text.

Janice, Justine and I worked together for several months before I finally found a Bank I was happy with. I am completely happy with my employer I am more than thrilled that Stacy and her team made this process streamlined and kept my needs in the forefront. If you want professional, organized, and honest, I highly suggest utilizing the Park Avenue Group.
