Had a great experience with gecko! My rep, Tara Gates, took all the stress out of the job searching experience. She took care of setting up my interviews and provided great feedback at each stage of the interview process so I could present myself as a strong and knowledgeable candidate. I really felt like she was in my corner for anything I needed during my job search. If you’re looking for that next big promotion, gecko can definitely make it happen!
You are a great “people picker” and talent developer! Tara is terrific and reps you well. I am on to the next phase of interviews! I truly feel I am a good pick for JGilberts. Tara’s attitude is contagious and she motivates me, but keeps me grounded. Thank you!
