Over our 60 years of collective experience, ARN has built long-term relationships with clients and candidates, relationships that are marked by a deep sense of mutual trust, respect, and loyalty.
For past and present candidates, this means that we have been there for them through both good and challenging times, providing counsel on career management, serving as sounding boards on problems they are facing at their current job, and facilitating networking opportunities whether or not it is related to a job opportunity we’re working on. This translates into their commitment to help us when we need to identify key talent for a new search – call it “Pay it Forward.”
For past and present clients, this means that we are always available to share our expertise regarding in house talent acquisition issues including “How to get internal buy-in for a new role,” compensation ranges for a new job, or best practices in departmental structure and processes.
To prove the point, here are a few testimonials from ARN network members:
Colette has the uncanny ability to work with me and HR as a business partner. She takes the time to not only understand the qualifications of the job and to understand how the organization works, but also to understand the mission behind the people and the jobs themselves. When she presents candidates, it’s with a real understanding not only of the job and the organization, but also of the person that’s doing the hiring, the person who sits in my chair. But that’s not the only reason why she and her associates at ARN are so effective. First, they have incredible market intelligence to bring to the table. Second, their customer service is top notch. I really believe that when I reach out to anyone at ARN, that I am going to get a timely and thorough response. You all take a great deal of pride in caring not only about responding but responding in a meaningful way. It comes through. Everyone that I talk to at ARN exudes that charisma and professionalism.

Colette and I started our careers together at Viacom and I have seen her success in recruiting both in house and in her own executive search firm. Detailed, thorough, passionate, practical, she can anticipates the needs of her clients as well as represent her candidates with an insight into their potential that transcends the typical search firm relationship. Additionally, she has a very good network that crosses all levels including extensive first hand relationships with C-suite executives. Because of her hands-on experience in the corporate world, her network, and her ability to give me practical advice on a whole range of issues, I find her to be an invaluable partner when I need to find a candidate for a new search.

The service of ARN has been so effective because they are extremely responsive and dedicated to getting our needs filled. They really go above and beyond most recruiters and treat each assignment as if they were trying to fill in for their own family and friends. I think that personal touch really sets them apart from the others. Passionate, energetic, committed, smart, they are an asset to any client. Because of their extensive corporate HR background, they have insight into how corporations make hiring decisions in contrast to others who have just worked in the executive recruiting realm. Their experience really sets them apart because they are able to get into the ‘corporation’s head’…they know how corporations are run and what they look for.

Colette and Dené are amazing people to work with as I completely trust their expertise, partnership and ability to add value to our business. They take the time to understand our business challenges so that they can service us effectively. I also enjoy their willingness to bring a strong point of view to the table, not as a vendor but as a partner. And, I enjoy working with both of them as they are committed to ensuring the vendor client relationship is trusting, open and fun.
