I have been in the hospitality industry for most of my professional career and have had the pleasure and misfortune of working with recruiters. I have recently found myself inheriting a market in NW Arkansas for a restaurant company called Slim Chickens and have had the extreme pleasure of working with Jacob Tarabar. He is extremely organized, thorough, professional while delivering me credible candidates that fit my needs. I started my search for talent with three recruiters and know solely work with Jacob for he has outperformed your competition with Herculean results. I am very loyal to those that support me in this fashion and have recently even sent Jacob friends that are out looking for their next employment. So simply put Jacob Rocks because he is making the recruitment and hiring portion of my job effortless.
