"I’m very thankful for MBK Search (specifically Spencer Knibbe)—this was my first career move after 8 years (hence had a TON of questions and uncertainties), but Spencer guided me through this process seamlessly. He was always available (even via call/text) and extremely responsive, and he made me comfortable to be fully open and transparent about my wants/needs and aspirations, which he took into account and used his experience and expertise to act as a perfect ambassador for me. Thank you so much again!”

"Jeff was really good about not sending me things I wasn't interested in... he made sure everything was checked off before I went into the interview... set everything up and here I am a couple weeks in, loving the job, I think it's going to be my long term career."

"I have had a great experience with MBK and working with Spencer Knibbe and his team. Spencer was very professional and kept me updated on the interview process. Once I was hired, Spencer stayed in touch and did weekly check-in(s) making sure I had a good experience with being on-boarded with the new company. I would work with MBK again in the future if needed. I am thankful to be in my current role thanks to Spencer and the MBK staff."

"Jeff was very quick to get on the case and start sending candidates our way. They were all qualified and capable of what we needed and we got them in short order because we had a needy case and he was able to start sending us potential clients within a couple days of our initial conversation. He asked a lot of questions about what we were looking for even as far as personality traits, which in our case was important because we have a smaller team."
