Karen was truly one of the most professional people I have ever worked with. I have had the pleasure to work with her both as job seeker as well as a hiring manager. Her and I were able to collaborate and have insightful dialogue throughout the entire process. Karen works any and all hours of the day, even returning my call from another country while on a family vacation. Bottom line, working with Karen and FloodGate is always wonderful.

Regional Business Manager
There are many great recruiters out there, but there is something that stood out working with Karen and FloodGate. Karen was professional from the time I filled out the questionnaire of what type of an opportunity I am looking for until the end when I accepted an offer. Karen sent me FloodGate instructional videos to get me ready for each step, phone interview, in person interview tips as well as follow up recommendations. She followed up with me before and after each interview to check in, and even a few weeks into me starting my new job. It was a pleasure working with Karen and would recommend FloodGate to anyone looking for employment.
