Melanie Stern is one of the most passionate, strategic, professional recruiters I have worked with. I had the pleasure of working with Melanie both as a client and as a candidate. Having the unique experience of observing her behavior from both sides, I can say with a lot of confidence that she’s not simply a recruiter; she’s a “strategic matchmaker.” When I first talked to Melanie, I wasn’t on the hunt for a new job but she presented the opportunity in a way that really connected it with my career development (both past and future). Throughout the process, I learned a lot about her. How committed she was about finding the right candidate while also making sure the job opportunity was the right fit for me too. Melanie is a terrific coach; very upfront, always providing clear guidance and on-going communication. Her behavior has always been the same, no matter if I was her client or a candidate. Melanie is strategic. She is not there just to fill a position or find a candidate. She is committed to understanding what success should look like, focusing on the big picture and making sure business objectives are met. Melanie is a matchmaker. In an era where digital matchmaking has made finding candidates fairly easy, she can make the difference between hiring someone and hiring the right person. In the marketing communications industry, the only asset we have is our people. For us, hiring people with the right skills and experience is not enough. We need to make sure we bring in the best talent, those who have the kind of values and leadership that will create an impact on our company. That’s where Melanie’s magic comes to play. I strongly recommend Melanie. Her determination to find the right “strategic match” will definitely challenge your initial thoughts on the position you are trying to fill. She always asks lots of questions to make sure she understands what you really need. Some candidates she presents might not seem like the right fit at first glance because she doesn’t always fish in the obvious places. Melanie goes beyond reviewing résumés, she will spend plenty of time talking to the candidate in order to make sure that he/she is the one. Her expertise is in matching the right candidate to the right opportunity so both sides accomplish their goals. If you are looking for more than simply filling a position, if what you are looking for is a strategic matchmaker, you should definitely talk to Melanie.
Melanie's guidance through the interviewing process was fantastic - the kind you wish every recruitment professional were like. She was very knowledgeable about everyone's needs and provided the necessary information without sugarcoating it, effectively helping make an informed decision. She was always - always - available for a phone conversation within the hour, and stayed on top of the whole process every step of the way. I definitely recommend her.
Melanie is great to work with. She really understands Account Services at all levels and has provided me stellar candidates over the past few years. She takes time to understand what the business needs and delivers under tight timelines. Always with a smile and hilarious sense of humour.
We engaged Melanie on a senior planner search. First, she is well respected by executive level planners, secondly, she knows the landscape and knows the candidates. Very few recruiters excel at recruiting account planners. They are a unique skill set in the advertising agency world. If you need the job done with integrity, thoughtfulness and a true partner who delivers results, then you would amiss to pass up the opportunity to work with Melanie.
I had the pleasure of working with Melanie at London Square. During our time working together, Melanie and I worked on several projects together and worked closely together on a day-to-day basis. She is a very well-spoken and thoughtful person who is always looking out for the best interest of applicants and fellow colleagues. She has a keen eye for details and offers thought-provoking insight to conversations. I miss working with Melanie and would enjoy the opportunity to work with her again in the future.
Melanie Stern is the definition of going above and beyond the call of duty. There are a lot of recruiters who will simply match up keywords on a resume with an open job listing and leave it at that. Melanie applies a personal touch and really gets to know the people she's scouting; she's much more of a corporate matchmaker than just a recruiter. Through my interview process, she did a thorough job of filling me in on the background of the company and the people I would be speaking with. At every stage of the process, she not only kept me informed, but genuinely wanted to know what I was feeling, and where I stood. Even after I accepted the position, she followed up to make sure I was still happy in my new role. If you have a position to fill, you can be assured that Melanie will have done the due diligence to vet your candidate fully before your first contact. Similarly, if Melanie reaches out to you with a job opportunity, listen to what she has to say - it won't be a waste of your time.
I was lucky to have met Melanie as she is not only a true professional, but also very caring. I've worked with recruiters in the past, but she is by far the best in the business. Melanie is encouraging and seeks to find your full potential. She is also extremely knowledgeable and has extensive experience in the industry. I am forever grateful to have crossed virtual paths with Melanie and would highly recommend her services to anyone who is looking to hire or in need of employment.
Melanie Stern is by far the very best and brightest, talent partner I've ever worked with. She is resourceful, strategic and passionate about her craft. I had the pleasure of working with Melanie when I was recruiting for a role that had seemed impossible to fill for several months. She was presented to me as the innovative and "able to find a needle in a haystack" recruiter. I was eager and excited to work with her. She listened to my needs, provided very thoughtful strategies and was extremely thorough and creative in her search process. The net result, she found an awesome, talent candidate who we later hired. The proof - within 1 week of the candidates employment, the client said "he's sharp, we really know how to pick 'em". No higher acknowledgment can be made in such a short period of time. Invest in Melanie Stern, she's worth every single dime you have to find the right person for your team.
