Larry runs a very, very thorough practice. Having been both a client and a candidate, I have the utmost confidence in the work that Larry does, the commitments that he makes and the integrity that he demonstrates. While always being a first class professional, he is genuine in his desire to make both parties benefit from a relationship or he will not recommend it. I would recommend Larry as the one recruiter that can get difficult jobs completed/filled. First rate.

While I was working at Mercer Consulting, Larry Duke contacted me regarding a potential position as a Compensation Analyst at a Global Consumer Products Company. During our initial conversation, Larry asked me several questions related to my professional interests as well as my short-term and long-term career aspirations. I found him to be very professional when presenting any opportunities within my skill set and interest. In speaking with him over time, I felt that he had my best interests in mind. Throughout the process, Larry always prepped me for any interview and always followed up immediately afterwards. As a result, I felt prepared and confident during the interview process. I feel that Larry goes above and beyond his role by assessing the fit of the individual for the organization as well as putting in the extra time for prep and follow-up. I would recommend him to any individual seeking out any opportunity in HR.

I first worked with Larry Duke in early 2007 when he contacted me about a position he was sourcing that he thought would be a match for my skills. From the very first call with Larry, I knew this experience with a recruitment firm would be different from those I had experienced prior. Larry (as well as his staff) did an exceptional job of keeping me informed of every step in the process and he (and his team) were amazing at preparing/coaching me for the interviews he had coordinated –it made the whole job search a little bit easier. Larry even found the compassionate words to let me know that I had not been selected as the candidate for the role I really wanted and though I was disappointed, I understood. I find Larry to be friendly, articulate, supportive and full of helpful suggestions throughout the job search process. He is a talented business professional who maintains a very strong connection with his clients and candidates and works very hard to find a good fit for the employer and the candidates. As an HR professional myself, I easily recommend him to other colleagues who are either in a job search or seeking a recruiter to source roles for their business.

I have known Larry Duke for more than 10 years, and he is one of my most valued connections. He is the kind of recruiter that has a deep understanding of both the needs of the client and the needs of the candidate. He is thorough, very responsive, and has an empathy that is rare in his line of business. Larry is well connected and very creative in both seeking out candidates, and seeking out opportunities for candidates. I have been privileged to work with Larry on numerous occasions, and he has continued to display an exceptional level of professionalism irrespective of whether I was the employer or the candidate. I have no hesitation in recommending him to employers and candidates alike!
