Twelve years ago, I was the job seeker looking to land the perfect job here in Maine. A job that would advance my career forward. I am truly grateful that when I decided to do so, I turned to Pro Search and met Sarah. Not only was she effective in helping me find the right opportunity then, but she and the team have been a “go-to” resource for me since as a hiring manager. She engages, listens and diligently works with employers to understand their needs and goals as well as prospective candidates to find the right professional, technical and cultural alignment. I highly recommend reaching out to Sarah whether you are an employer, job seeker, or simply interested in opportunities that exist in Maine. -- Jay

I've been working with Pro Search on a specific recruiting project for 9 months and Mary has been a pleasure to work with throughout the entire project. She's been responsive, organized and thorough. She truly understands the type of candidate that we're looking for and is able to find candidates even in a difficult recruiting landscape. I highly recommend and refer Mary and her team.

It’s been a pleasure working with Pro Search, as they really listen when I describe the skillset we are looking for, and they have sent us outstanding candidates. We recently hired on two temporary Pro Search staffers into permanent positions, which speaks to the caliber of candidates they provide. We are fortunate to have a professional firm such as Pro Search in the greater Portland area, and I highly recommend them.

ProSearch knows its business and ProSearch knows our business. What that means is ProSearch is able to provide high-quality temporary employees in a quick and easy fashion, which is essential for any business, but most particularly a small business. We trust ProSearch because of that knowledge and convenience!

When we had need for an operations manager, I immediately thought of Pro Search to help us get the right candidate for the job. I called Dave Vasconcelos and he got the ball rolling quickly with Andrea Brown and they found me the ideal candidate in a very short amount of time. Their efforts saved me an immense amount of time and effort by not having to weed through hundreds of on-line resumes and phone calls. I couldn’t be more impressed with their professionalism and attention to the specific needs of my organization.

I can easily say that Mary has been the best recruiter I have ever worked with. I first met Mary a couple of years ago when I was used as a reference for an employee of mine. At the time, I remember thinking that if I ever was looking for a change, Mary would be my go to recruiter. That day came this past fall. After 8 years at the same company, I was ready to make a move and Mary was the ONLY recruiter I decided to work with. Mary really took the time to understand my story, why I was leaving, and what my next my next chapter would ideally be. From our first call Mary really impressed me with her knowledge of the Greater Portland job Market (where I was looking) and of the opportunities that were available. Mary was able to get me in front of two fantastic companies and I was fortunate enough to make it all the way through the process. At this point Mary was crucial and helping me look at both companies and make sure I was making a good choice. Ultimately, I landed the Sales Management position I was looking for at Sage Data Security and I believe Mary was instrumental in making that happen. But wait, it doesn't end there! Now that I had landed at Sage, I would need to hire a team of Sales Reps to join me at this amazing company. Mary never skipped a beat and within days she had the most qualified candidates of any recruiter in front of me. Truth be told, Mary's candidates were the only people we ended up hiring for our sales positions for this round. We had brought in other candidates from other recruiters, but we felt Mary's people came in knowing so much more about the role and expectations that it made our process that much easier. Truth be told, I have had the pleasure of being both a candidate and a hiring manager while working with Mary and there isn't anyone I would rather work with than Mary and the ProSearch team.
Mary and Andrea were fantastic, helpful and full of wonderful insight. I very much enjoyed working with them and I am very excited for Kendra to start at Stone Coast. I look forward to partnering again in the future.
