In addition to recruiting, Denise is well-versed in employment law, HR strategies, organizational development, as well as the development of teams and group interactions. Denise’s comments have been featured the career books, “Knock em Dead – Secrets and Strategies for Career Success in an Uncertain World”, written by Martin Yate and “Knock Em Dead – Secrets & Strategies For First Time Job Seekers,” also by Martin Yate. Martin, a NY Times bestseller, author and commentator on career issues, had this to say about Denise,
“This is an unsolicited endorsement, I rarely give them. We live in uncertain times where the knowledge and wisdom required to survive and prosper in the professional world over the long haul is almost non-existent. Denise is one of the few who really grasp the issues, and who has thought through an intelligent response. In twenty five years I have published fourteen books, each addressing a different aspect of job search and career management, Denise Wilkerson is one of less than sixty people I have quoted in my entire body of work. “

“Randy Wilkerson and Global Edge Recruiting have done a great job in helping us find candidates that we would not have had access to. They have helped me through the entire Midwest dealing with numerous positions and multiple managers. Through every posting, they make sure they look at what the individual manager wants as well as the needs of the company. Over the past few years, we have developed a relationship in which I will always call them first to meet my needs. Randy has taken the time to get to know me and has always been open, honest, and friendly. Those are qualities that everyone needs in a good recruiter!.” Heidi S., Manager of Field Operations, Pharmaceutical Client
