“Dealing with South Bay Search and Paul Guziak was a reminder on how professional the search process should be. He listened to both my short and long-term goals and found the perfect match for me. Every step of the way, he provided insight on the organization, conveyed my questions to the client and in essence, held my hand during the offer stage. South Bay Search’s reputation in the industry is stellar and after my experience with Paul and his team, I can fully understand why!”

“I’ve worked with South Bay Search and Robert Caton over the last 8 years and I honestly do not look any further when/if I need a recruiter for myself or for hiring needs. With most recruiters, if you are not a match for a job they are working on, the call will abruptly end. When I work with Robert he listens and will take the time to match my skills and goals to the right opportunity. Furthermore, he is also happy to help consult me with my moves when he’s not involved with the placement. Thank you Robert and South Bay Search for always making my interest your #1 priority.”

“I would highly recommend Kelli Watkins as a recruiter. She went above and beyond for me as I was looking for a new role within the insurance industry. She seriously took the time to get to know me, my skills, experience, and what I was looking for. She connected me with an opportunity fairly quickly and it ended up being a great fit. Overall, a super positive experience and I can’t thank her enough!”

“James has been absolutely amazing throughout the whole recruitment process! He is a professional and dedicated recruitment person. When James first reached out to me, I was not ready to leave my position, but I could tell that he had a deep understanding of the insurance industry, the carrier and agency roles, and had a large network of quality companies to place a candidate in.

Almost a year later, when I was ready to look at available positions, I reached back out to James and he listened to my qualifications and presented a few options for job placement. We both knew they were great positions but not a great fit for me. When the job posting came up for my current employer, he knew I was the perfect candidate. He not only dig deep into my background to be able to show the company my depth of knowledge through the years, but he also pitched me brilliantly to them. My first interview, they were already very aware of my strengths and precious employment history, so we were able to quickly go into the role itself and how I would fit.

I cannot thank you enough for you full support, for believing in me and for helping me start a new chapter of my professional career and placing me with a company that feels like HOME! Thank you for your follow up through my onboarding with the new company and the wonderful gift! James, you are brilliant at what you do!”
