Working with Karel Lukas and his team was a pleasure. The first time I spoke with Karel it was the fall of 2008 about a position he thought I'd be interested in learning about. It was not the right opportunity at that point in my career and Karel didn't try to sell me on the idea that it was. Karel took a lot of time understanding what I might be interested in at some point down the road. He asked me a lot of questions about what I would look for to make a career change. I didn't hear back from Karel for almost a year later, until he had the perfect opportunity for me to consider. Our conversation a year earlier had not been forgotten. He didn't waste my time or his with every position that came across his desk. When he explained the details of the opportunity, I could not pass it by. It met every one of the criteria that I had set for me to consider moving positions.
The detail and effort Karel puts into placing the right person with the right opening is truly impressive. I've worked with dozens of recruiters over the last 15 years in management and can honestly say I've never met someone who takes more time to understand what your goals, strengths, likes and dislikes are before putting you together with the hiring manager. I highly recommend Karel and the service provided by The Trevi Group.

I wish to express my sincere gratitude for your professionalism and dedication to excellence while placing me at my current position. Over the years, I have worked with many placement organizations and none have come close to the experience that I had with you and the Trevi Group. From the first call with you, you showed exemplary aptitude for your profession. The materials and tools you provided to me where invaluable in ultimately securing my position. Your follow up skills should be captured on paper and shared with the world of professional search and placement organizations. It would be easy for me to recommend your services to anyone.

I would like to take this opportunity to recommendKarel Lukas of the Trevi Group as your preferred partner for recruiting hard to fill positions both within region an outside your local region. I have had the pleasure now of working with Karel for over a year and I have found his recruiting skills and style to be highly professional. Karel not only brings me candidates that are pre-screened and qualified his post interview and recruitment skills and follow-up are superb. To Karel recruiting is not just about filling a single position its about building trust and a relationship with his clients and this is why I choose to use him and the Trevi Group not only for my own business needs butI also recommend him to family and close business associates.
A recent example of some work that Karel and I did together was to fill a position for a Customer Service Manager in our Canadian office as I am located in Virginia. Karel worked through the international challenges I faced and within 3 months I had a manager in place and trained who has now been with the company for a year and who is doing a fantastic job. Thanks Karel!!

I engaged Karel Lukas at The Trevi Group to help with a job search that I found quite challenging. None of the candidates that I was able to identify through my own network had the right mix of skills and experience, but Karel was able to present me with a candidate who I would have never found. The candidate was looking to relocate to my target geography, had all the skills that Karel and I had discussed and brought an infectious enthusiasm to SPS.
I quickly engaged Karel the next time I had a position to fill and would recommend that others do the same.

As the Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Glowpoint , Inc. I had the opportunity to work closely with you during my tenure at the company. Your contribution to our success in quickly identifying top talent was immeasurable. In particular, I commend you for your follow up skills as well as your professionalism.
While working with you, one of your greatest accomplishments was your ability to identify key individuals that could make an immediate impact on our business. These individuals were at the highest ranking in sales performance in their respective companies and industries. Each candidate is well prepared during all phases of the interviewing process.
I find you to be unfailingly honest, caring and dedicated. I always appreciate your directness in all our interactions. You express your point of view clearly and present your ideas passionately, without ever putting yourself in front of our organization and the prospective employee. I believe that your personal integrity is the foundation of your professional success.
It truly is a pleasure to work with you.

I just wanted to drop you a line and THANK YOU for matching me up with Voice & Data Networks. I had been working contract jobs for the last year. I was not working when I received your call. At first I thought this would be the same routine call for contract work so I sent you my info. It was in the interview that you revealed to me that two candidates were ahead of me but you detected something more than my resume could reveal. That is when I knew I had a real chance at this a permanent full time position!
I believe in this market... the way resumes are processed... that I have been eliminated many times by my resume alone and I also believe I have more to offer than my resume can show.
You were the one that made the difference in this process by taking the time to find out about me and also knowing your customer.
To me this feels like a great match!
Thank You Again!

Thank you so much for all you did for me. I would have never applied at this company or even thought of them if it hadn't been for you introducing me to them. I am excited to start the new job. I will keep you posted on how it all goes. In the meantime, I will start to make some calls to see if I can recommend some folks over to you. You did a GREAT job helping me in so many ways. Your proactive feedback and follow through was great! I appreciate all you have done. Thanks again.
