I am writing to recommend the services of Lisa Oxenhandler. I recently employed Lisa to find a qualified candidate for a Project Coordinator position. Lisa and her staff, specifically Andrea Hoerner, pursued innovative avenues to find a qualified candidate that were not even considered by our staff. The level of communication that our office manager received regarding possible candidates was top notch. When we felt that our staffing requirements maybe weren’t fully understood, Lisa and Andrea were willing to listen, re-group, and give it another go. They understood that we were not only looking for a qualified candidate but also one that would “fit in” in our environment and would live up to our core values and morals.
Needless to say, we feel like they have found us a very qualified and capable employee. They did this in less time and lower cost than expected.
I would recommend Lisa and her staff to anyone wanting to fill a role in their company!

presented to us, they were all professional, well-educated, energetic and
eager to work which made our hiring decision difficult, but we are confident
our new hire will be a fantastic addition to our team!"
Career Coaching Client
"What comes to mind when I hear recruiter, is someone who helps you find a new job at a different company. As a career coach Lisa Oxenhandler offers much more than that especially with her 26 plus years of experience and all her resources. She also helps people succeed in different capacities within their current company which can be really valuable. If you want to climb the corporate ladder, switch departments, enhance your committee work or just be the shining star, she can help polish you and your resume to achieve these goals. Trying to figure out what your dream job is (and how to get it), need to update your technology and networking skills or just gather industry information? You will have access to any and all resources she has, including Andrea Hoerner, another great asset. Learning how much a career coach can do, no matter what your aspirations, needs or situation are, has been thrilling and enlightening to me. They can really help you make an impact at your future or current company and to accomplish your dreams.
With my absolute utmost respect and admiration, I highly recommend Lisa Oxenhandler and Andrea Hoerner. I encourage you, your family and friends, to reach out to them."
