"This letter is in support of RJ2 & Associates. During the past year, my department has had 15 key openings in our information technology department. Many of the positions include critical skill sets in Sybase, Oracle and AS400/RPG technology. In the past six months, four different vendors have been working on filling these positions to no success. In august of this year, I added RJ2 & Associates. to the list of approved vendors and immediately assigned them five of our toughest searches. I am happy to report that within eight weeks, they successfully filled all five positions. Given the abundance of different IT recruitment agencies today, I give my highest recommendation to RJ2 & Associates."

"I wish to take this opportunity to offer great kudos to Mr. Graziano for being much more than a Recruiter in the working relationship we have forged. Chris is more of my Personal Contract Manager than Recruiter and as gone beyond the 'call of duty' many times over to assist me with anything from Contract Negotiation to Personal Finance. Chris not only seamlessly placed me with a perfect fit, he as been there for me though many trials and tribulations to meet both my own needs and the critically changing needs of our client, Ambitech Engineering. Now, not only am I flourishing within an organization which is growing along my personal Career Path, I move forward with a high level of confidence that Chris and RJ2 are immediately available to assist me in whatever I may need. Chris and RJ2 exemplify the concept of 'Working the Contract with You' and I’m eternally grateful for their services."

"I have worked closely with Rafaela Torres and RJ2 and Associates for some time and I am very pleased with the level of service they provide.

Rafaela has continued to stay in touch even though my assignment has ended. I know she is always thinking of me when opportunities arise within my area of expertise."

I want to thank you for the smooth transition I experienced when I came to work at Merichem and the continued support during my first two months here. I hope our relationship will continue to progress for the foreseeable future. There is always uncertainty in any employment situation, but this working out as well as I could have hoped. May it continue for a long time!"

Jerry Frankel

From the day of the first telephone contact, and throughout my association with RJ2, my experience with everyone there was a total pleasure. They are truly ‘people-focused’ and are genuinely concerned about their employee's welfare and professional development. I highly recommend them to any job-seeker."

"It was a break of my career when Rafaela Torres from RJ2 & Associates contacted me about an opportunity as a Regulatory Compliance Engineer in Carol Stream. I was already working in a similar position in Carpentersville, a job I took after being laid off from a job of 25 years.

I was very surprised when Rafaela called and asked me if I would be interested in a position in Carol Stream. I did not know Rafaela or RJ2 & Associates at the time. She had found my resume on the internet.

She first told me about RJ2 & Associates, everything about benefits, vacation, holidays etc. Then Rafaela went over the job with me. She sent me an email with the job description and we talked about it in length. The job description was a perfect fit. I couldn’t have written it better myself. (I have been working in this field for over 25 years). Rafaela then went over everything about the company in Carol Stream, the product, where it’s used, who is the customer and where I can find more info on the website. Rafaela was incredible, thoughtful and understanding. She made me feel comfortable discussing my career with her.

Everything seemed perfect and I couldn’t pass on this opportunity. I asked Rafaela if she could get me an interview. She did immediately. I received by emailed all the details including directions. And she was able to set-up the interview in the evening since I worked till 5:30 p.m. The meeting was with the Vice President of Engineering, a little scary, but Rafaela helped me to get ready. She was excellent.

Following my interview I was offered the job. It was an incredible experience. The entire process from the start to the finish was something I will never forget. I have recommend Rafaela to my family and friends. In fact she has been successful in landing jobs for 2 of my friends recently.

Rafaela continues to stay in touch and always asks me if I need anything."

"For some time, I have counted on Chris Graziano and RJ2A as one of my 'preferred' staffing firms to work for. My wife, who travels with me, started pining to go home ... so I called Chris and asked him if he had anything in the area. He did have a project, and Chris got me plugged into the position straight-away, and followed through as the client's HR rep needed guidance through the contracting procedures to finally close the deal.

As a super bonus, Chris pushed for and received a fantastic rate from the client. I never had to vacillate or negotiate for the best possible deal ... Chris Graziano handled it all for me, advocating my employment considerations as if they were his own."

Tim Coonse

"I am currently employed in a position that I did not even know existed until I was contacted by Rafaela. She knew that my background would match perfectly with the needs of my current employer. Rafaela maintained constant, courteous and, most importantly, timely contact with me during the recruiting process. I was fully informed of the decision process at the company and knew when to expect an offer that met my compensation requirements. Rafaela still maintains frequent email contact and I am grateful for the effort she put into my job search experience. I would certainly work with her again and would recommend her to friends and family."

"Your staff member, Eric Bruce, has been diligently helping me find a job in the Graphic and Web Design field. I was referred to RJ2 and Associates by a friend. I am so happy that she recommended you guys, because your company has helped me out more than my schools Career Services department has. I really appreciate all the work you guys have been putting in to help me find a good job. Mr. Bruce has been kind, positive, and persistent in getting me into an interview to be face to face with a hiring manager. With the economy how it is right now, I could really use all the help I could get. I have been beefing up my resume and client relations since I graduated by taking on numerous freelance projects. I will recommend your company to my friends who have also graduated or soon will be graduating college."
