PRAISE FOR MATCH

"Finding exceptional people is a difficult task in any hiring market. Even now, when there are so many candidates, it is challenging to identify the best hire for your company. The best practices in MATCH provide a systematic approach for identifying, hiring, and retaining the right people."
LIZ HICKOK, SPHR, HR Director, Sage North America

"MATCH is the perfect name for this book. Matching the right people to the right job in the right company is critical. A wrong match can kill, and a great match can make you. Learn how to make better matches today from a proven professional who spends every workday on the front lines of the employment war."
RICK MYERS, founder and CEO, Talent Zoo

"If interviewing anyone ever made you unsure, then MATCH is for you. The hiring tactics discussed in MATCH are brilliant! MATCH is a must-read for anyone involved in the hiring process."
DAVE BUCKEL, CFO

"MATCH puts hiring GREAT people at the top of the priority list—which is exactly where it should be."
JIM HULING, consultant and author of Choose Your Life!

"As the business community continues to understand the importance and value of 'paying it forward,' it is critical that companies develop hiring techniques allowing them to identify, hire, and retain employees that foster a culture of giving back. MATCH provides a method for achieving that objective."
BOB LITTELL, author, speaker, and Chief NetWeaver, NetWeavers International

"I have hired a great deal of people in my career. But it wasn't until I used the MATCH process that I felt as comfortable with my hire on day one as I did a year after the employee started. I am very pleased with the results."
KEVIN MELENDY, CEO, Spectral Response LLC
