I have used Lisa multiple times for my recruiting needs. I am an ophthalmic professional and finding personnel with ophthalmic experience is difficult at best. Lisa always provided great results in a timely manner and communicated with me each step of the process. I cannot recommend Lisa highly enough.

Her networking skills and industry knowledge enable her to think outside of the box, providing her clients with the best candidates.

We’re a small firm so the time and energy needed to find the perfect candidate can take several weeks or months. And at times it can be put on hold all together while you perform your daily tasks. So when I had the opportunity to work with Lisa, she took the time to find out not only about the position, but the culture of the firm and our long term goals. It’s not just what’s on the resume, but the person as a whole. Does the candidates goals match up to our goals? Education and experience are necessary parts of the puzzle so when she takes the time to fit the candidate to our culture, it’s a match that can last for years and add value to the firm. Lisa is there every step of the way providing two-way communications so you’re on top of the process from start to an excellent finish.

Career Coaching, Lynda

What comes to mind when I hear recruiter, is someone who helps you find a new job at a different company. As a career coach Lisa Oxenhandler offers much more than that especially with her 26 plus years of experience and all her resources. She also helps people succeed in different capacities within their current company which can be really valuable. If you want to climb the corporate ladder, switch departments, enhance your committee work or just be the shining star, she can help polish you and your resume to achieve these goals. Trying to figure out what your dream job is (and how to get it), need to update your technology and networking skills or just gather industry information? You will have access to any and all resources she has, including Andrea Hoerner, another great asset. Learning how much a career coach can do, no matter what your aspirations, needs or situation are, has been thrilling and enlightening to me. They can really help you make an impact at your future or current company and to accomplish your dreams.

With my absolute utmost respect and admiration, I highly recommend Lisa Oxenhandler and her staff. I encourage you, your family and friends, to reach out to them.
