I've no doubt that Fastnet will provide excellent assistance in my future career moves as required.​

Kevin Canny, CSA Supervisor, Jacobs Engineering​

 


My personal experience with Fastnet was very positive. When first meeting with me, they took the time to really understand my professional background & career aspirations. Later on, when the right opportunity came up, Fastnet presented the company & the role to me in a very professional manner. During the hiring process, I felt thoroughly informed & prepared in terms of what was critical to the company.

Evelyne Legaux, Order To Cash Manager, FMC

 


Amazingly efficient is the phrase that comes to mind when I think about Therese. I had the pleasure of working with her to find my perfect job at Pfizer. I was particularly impressed by Therese’s ability to keep candidates up to date with regards to progress. Hard-working is an understatement! Not only did she help me prepare for interviews but she checked on me at each stage of the interview process! Best recruiter ever! She is both knowledgeable and pleasant. Anyone looking to find a job within the pharma/biopharma/ industry would be lucky to have Therese as their recruiter!​​
