Rj Link International, Inc.

Rj Link International, Inc.

President

We wish to express our sincere gratitude for the professional and expeditious manner in which FurstSearch executed the search. All five candidates were certainly well qualified and warranted our consideration. As we stated at the onset, as a small company, we have never used a search firm before. We always felt it was “too expensive” for our little company. I believe we were wrong. This search brought us high quality candidates we could never have found on our own. We are extremely pleased with the results. Thank you again for your help.
