“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!”
