Karen was able to pick out the skills and experiences I had that would be valuable to employers so we could focus our search on the firms that were likely to be interested. I say “we” and “our” because once Karen got involved, she was right there with me. She helped prepare me for interviews, was there to answer all my questions about the process and celebrated every tiny bit of positive feedback with me... Most importantly, her enthusiasm was contagious. Just talking with her inspired hope so I was able to show up for interviews with energy and excitement... Thanks to Karen, I wound up in a job that is a better fit for me than anything I would have thought of on my own.

Before reaching out to (Karen), I had already spent several months (unsuccessfully) submitting applications through other recruiters and on my own and was starting to lose hope. However, I knew if anyone could help me, it was Karen Vladeck. Not only did I tell her that I wanted to lateral to a different city as a very junior associate, but I also wanted to transition to a new practice group. Karen didn’t blink; she listened and immediately got to work tailoring a list of firms that fit my needs and preparing me for interviews.

Within weeks, I received and accepted an offer for my dream job as a corporate associate in Austin. Before starting this process, I didn’t know all of the benefits of working with a good recruiter like Karen, but her deep insider knowledge and powerful advocacy set me up for success. She is responsive, kind, and wildly effective at her job. You will not find a better recruiter/therapist/friend than Karen Vladeck.
