Our Satisfied Clients



'Angelica was one of our very top recruiters in San Francisco. She was a joy to work with and always had a wonderful attitude. You could tell she really enjoyed and cared about what she was doing.'

Stacy Nelson, Executive Recruiter



'I've worked with Alexa both to place new hires and find new opportunities for myself in the last several years. She has terrific instincts about people and organizations, and was able to help us hire individuals who were essential to our development. I cannot recommend Alexa more highly.'

Lena Leson, HR/Operations Manager at Quid



'Many things can be said about Waseem's dedication to and passion for recruiting. My experience with Waseem was that he wasn't interested in finding me a job; he wanted to find me a career and a place to belong. His focus on not only finding me a strong company to be an employee of but putting me with managers that he knew would align with my style. He can find you a job if that's what you want but I think Waseem's true passion and skill is in putting the right hiring managers together with the right employees.'

Zachariah Everhart, Financial Crimes Risk Management Guru



'Angelica is wonderful to work with. I have hired many candidates from Groupe Insearch who have added real value to our team.'

Sue Ann Curley, Manager at TCV



'I've worked with Alexa over the last three years to make literally every placement for our Office Manager positions. In addition to having an extensive network of really qualified people, she has uncanny taste in finding the right cultural fit for us and all under really tight timeframes. I couldn't imagine working with anyone better.'

Eric Gutoski, Senior Vice President, Americas at Tacit Knowledge



"I had the pleasure of working with Rachel, who helped me go from unemployed to working at a fantastic company in a perfect position in a matter of weeks."

Alexis B., Candidate



"Working with Groupe Insearch has been a dream. They kept me realistic, but never once shot down my goals. It's easy to trust them to represent you well because they genuinely want to find a good fit-for both you and their client. You can sense this from the first time you meet them all the way to when they send you flowers during your first week on the job! I can't wait to refer my friends to GI. I moved to San Francisco and landed a perfect job within 2 months of working with Angelica and Emily- and I am positive it wouldn't have happened without them!" Monica G.,Candidate



" Angelica has been a pivotal player in my professional success. Groupe Insearch supported my job search and constructively made me an overall better candidate! Bottom line, they're awesome and you're in great hands!" Alexasia S., Candidate



I will recommend Olivia to anyone that I know who is looking for an Executive Assistant role or any of the roles that Group Insearch recruits for. I was incredibly impressed with her throughout the entire process, but also impressed with the clientele that Group Insearch has access to and works with. The result of this job search with Group Insearch has far exceeded any of my expectations. I know that without Group Insearch I would have never had access to, or even knowledge of the organization that I am going to now work with." Adriana B., Candidate
