Eric is, without question, the best recruiter I have ever had the opportunity to work with in my 17 years in IT, having held the roles of consultant, employee and manager. He took the effort to get to know me through hours of conversation so that my next position would be a perfect fit for me, and for the company (not a couple of key-words from a resume search to say the least). He ensured that I was properly prepared for the entire interview process, aggressively represented my interests, and I felt like I had a coach and friend in my corner the entire time. Two years later, I’m still in my dream job at a fantastic company where I look forward to going to work each day. Whenever a friend or family member asks for a lead, I remember my experiences with Eric and send them to him.

Eric is sincerely the best recruiter that I know. His ability to manage clients and maintain long term relationships was something that I aspired to throughout my tenure at Kendall & Davis. He is a stalwart professional and always had the company’s best interest in mind.
I would definitely work with Eric again and hope to at some point in the future.
— Past Team Member
Eric is superb recruiter, and I think Kendall & Davis should be proud to have him. He found me out thru a mutual contact and landed me a great new job. I liked the way Eric approached the entire recruitment process very professionaly. I had never worked thru a headhunter before, but Eric has created a lasting nice first impression.

He is very thorough, he makes sure that he gives as much info to the potential job seeker as possible, and he spends a lot of time in prepping the candidate before the interview. He also does a great work of taking feedback. And, he is really good for
negotiating on your behalf. I wish Eric a lot of success in future.
