“I want to recommend and thank Ed for the tremendous job he did when I was looking for a new opportunity last month.
He helped me greatly with every component of the job search from the first day we spoke, giving me options that really matched my profile and expectations. Ed resolved all my doubts and gave me tips and guidance that led to successful interviews and ultimately receiving an offer for the perfect job.
Even after I accepted the offer, since I am not an American resident, he was invaluable to me and the lawyers in assisting me to obtain my new Visa, which I really appreciated given that it is such an important, complex and delicate process.
If you are looking for a new opportunity as I was, Ed is the right person to work with!”

“Ed adds a much-needed personal touch to the field of recruiting. I first started working with him in 2004, when he reached out to me about opportunities in investment banking in NYC. I was in the aerospace industry at the time, and also a very inexperienced interviewer.
Ed lined up many interviews for me. But before doing so, he spent many hours on the phone with me in order to make sure that I was both mentally and technically prepared for what was to come. On interview days, he invited me to his office before going to the interviews to help me practice presentation and delivery. I did well, landed a new role, and I have him and his colleagues to thank for it. It has always been obvious from the way that Ed conducts himself and communicates with his clients that he cares about their careers.
Over the years, Ed and I have kept in touch and we worked together to land more roles that would help advance my career. More recently, he has checked in from time to time to see how I’m doing, and if there’s anything he can do to help out.
My recommendation of Ed cannot be overstated. He played a large part in helping to launch my career in technology, all while offering a friendly and personal touch to recruiting that is rare these days.

— Sajith K.
“When I graduated from school, Ed helped me find my first job at a prestigious financial firm. I believe one of the unique talents Ed has is that he is able to very nicely gauge the skill levels of a candidate and place them in proper positions at great companies.
Over the years, I have worked with other recruiters as well and most tend to just blindly send your resume and hope for the best.
But Ed is different. He prepares you for the interview, figures out what your strengths are and what company is best suited for you, what roles are a good match.
This leads to starting off a job with good job satisfaction which is key to career development and personal growth/achieving things in the company.
I am very happy to know Ed and would wholeheartedly recommend Ed to anyone looking for the best recruiter to find your ideal job.”
