What People Are Saying

“I was not actively looking for a new position when Melissa approached me about my current role. Not only did the position involve a move to a much larger company, but it required relocation 1000 miles from my home of fifteen years. Needless to say, I was hesitant. However, Melissa listened to all of my initial concerns and encouraged me to take a chance because she felt that the company and I were the best possible fit for each other. She thoroughly prepared me for my interviews and, more importantly for me, she held my hand through the compensation negotiation and the entire relocation process. Melissa genuinely seemed to care that I was comfortable with accepting the new role from both professional and personal perspectives, and that made all the difference to me. I think she must have a crystal ball, because she was absolutely correct – the transition has been nearly seamless and I love my new role and my new home. I would like to say that Melissa went above and beyond for me, but I firmly believe that she does the same for all of her candidates and clients. Melissa clearly values the creation of lasting relationships over anything else. She is a trusted, experienced recruiting partner with a sparkling personality. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone!”

“I had never worked with a recruiter before working with Princeton Legal. In terms of client services, direct and open communication, no one compares to Melissa. She opened my eyes to a position that I would not have considered as strongly if she hadn’t brought it to my attention. I am now at a great company, in a great role and I have her to thank for that. Melissa was in constant communication with me throughout the process, was an excellent advocate for me and an even better advocate for the group and company I am currently working for. If you want someone to help you with your next career move, Melissa Peters is hands down the person I would send your way.”
