Don Sonn and his team found me a great job opportunity and got me hired on within a matter of days. The guy shoots straight and doesn't b.s. you, he gets you prepared to succeed with your interview.
Excellent communication with this team, they don't leave you guessing! I will recommend this company to my friends and family.

Working with Don has been a breeze. Don asks all the right questions to get to know who I am and what I am looking for in a career. Not many people out there take that kind of time anymore. A pleasure to know that individuals like Don still do exist. more »

Don has been a pleasure to work with. He knows the industry and provides helpful knowledge of the prospective employers which gives you an edge over other applicants. It's especially helpful to interview with the decision makers instead of HR associates. I wouldn't hesitate to contact Don again. more »

I was not actively seeking a new position, but was contacted by Don Sonn to see about a very strong position with another firm in the contract furniture industry out of state. It was clear that he knew the employer very well and had placed other folks at this company before. While the interview process is still working and a final decision has not been made, the assistance and experience given by Don and his team has been very good. I would recommend their services to anyone actively seeking to make a change. more »

Very happy with the efficiency and quality!
Almost immediately after having a conversation with them they had set up an interview. Gave good information about the firm, what to emphasize in the
interview, what not to mention. Kept in contact throughout the entire process and guided me through it. more »

Professional Recruiter Associates is a very knowledgeable and honorable company. They are trustworthy and have good advice about all kinds of issues relating to business, talent management, contracts and other recruiting matters. PRA Recruiters are very available and always completed our projects in a timely fashion and under budget. They will give you the advice that gives you the best outcome, not advice that generates more business or profit for themselves.. That is a incredibly important trait and often hard to find in a professional recruiting firm such as Professional Recruiter Associates. IN particular, I highly recommend Donald Sonn, for ethics, integrity and for going above and beyond what was required. more »

This is a boutique firm with honest and reliable people. more »
