If my number-one priority is to serve the client and candidate in a comprehensive fashion, I’m bound for success. To be completely effective, I need a comprehensive understanding of my client from position requirements to internal culture and more. After that, I can actively recruit the appropriate candidates who will advance their careers by coming to work with my client. — David Goodrum
