Director of UI/UX at SessionM
Client Testimonial "Carol has been my go-to recruiting partner for almost 10 years, across multiple companies. For example, when we were launching the UX practice at Virtusa, she was the first person I called to help build out our team. Her team's knowledge of both UX design and UI development enables them to quickly hone in on qualified candidates without the back and forth that it often takes with other firms with whom I've worked. As we've grown, they have quickly helped us expand our reach into new regions of the country, and have worked with us to find both full-time employees and contractors."

With each new hire, the Clearpoint team has listened carefully to my requirements and tracked down candidates with the right skills, experience, and intangible “stuff” – senior professionals who hit the ground running. I know that I’ve been picky and demanding, and Clearpoint has always come through for me."
Senior Director, Documentation at Deltek, Inc.
Client Testimonial "As a manager of a writing team, I have been very happy with Clear Point's ability to address my staffing needs. The medical device industry has unique requirements to produce documentation for various audiences, including patients at home and regulatory bodies, such as the FDA. Carol, in particular, was very helpful in navigating through dozens of resumes and sending me highly qualified candidates which resulted in the hiring of two staff writers. She was very responsive when I asked for different qualifications and immediately focused on giving me the types of candidates I was looking for. I appreciated her professionalism and timely responses. I highly recommend Carol, and would use her resources again should the need arise. "
