Let me share my experience with Austin Allen Company and specifically, Marla Stahlhut.

Even though I was dis-satisfied at my prior employer, I was not actively seeking other employment opportunities. One afternoon Marla reached out to me based on an older resume I had submitted to Austin Allen at some time back. Marla introduced herself and gave me a quick synopsis of the opportunity that she was recruiting for. As I am older, I quickly advised Marla of my age and my lack of a degree. I went on to say that I did not want to waste her time or mine as many times before, I had been denied opportunities due to one or both of these facts.

Marla quickly explained the things that I perceived as roadblocks would not be an issue. After further conversation about my experience, my management style, and my personal objectives related to any change I may make, Marla assured me that the opportunity that she was presenting would be a good fit for me both professionally and personally. From that point forward Marla provided me with all the information I needed about the hiring company and their interview process. Marla professionally followed up after each step of the interview process both to see how I perceived the process as well as the client’s perception of me.

Through the entire process, Marla promptly answered all my questions as well as working with the client to accommodate my schedule for each phase of the interview process. Fortunately for me, I was awarded the position and now have the privilege of working with a great group of both senior and subordinate associates for a great employer. Without Marla’s patience during our first phone conversation, both myself and my employer would have missed out on a win/win result.  – CW
