What People Are Saying

Rikka presented at our Governor's Workforce and HR Conference in Fargo and was a hit! The topic related to getting great candidates without having to pay the headhunter fee – which is spot on for a lot of our attendees and their budgets. Rikka was engaging, kept the audience actively participating and was able to make recruiting seem not quite so scary. Our attendees left the session feeling energized and ready to tackle recruiting head-on!
You get high energy, knowledgeable recruiters, who know not only the industry, but have a very good handle on the overall business climate.
Rikka is one of the most motivated, driven, and results-oriented recruiters I've met. She takes the time to understand the needs of her clients and then sets realistic expectations as to meeting those needs. Rikka also has an uncanny ability to find the “needle in the haystack” candidate. She always maintains a high level of energy and a postive attitude under some of the most stressful situations. I would love to work with her again!
Building Gurus has been wonderful to work with. They are always very thorough in their approach to understanding the position requirements and learning about the specific needs of our company. Their follow up on candidates they've spoken with is timely and accurate.
You have an uncanny ability to tap into the competition without leaving the sense that you are “stealing” our competitor’s employees away!
Rikka is a super enthusiastic recruiter. We have worked together on a number of searches and I always enjoy working with her. She understands our industry and brings high-quality candidates. She is also very honest about a search. She goes all out right from the beginning and if there are no candidates matching out search parameters, she doesn't string us along. When we have a special need, we always call Rikka first.
I would highly recommend Rikka because of her attention to detail and commitment to you as a client. I have had the pleasure of working directly with Rikka and it was a very pleasurable experience due to her focused approach to both the candidate and the employer. Rikka is a true professional that communicates with her clients very efficiently and effectively. She has great established relationships in the building materials industry.
Rikka was very fast in providing us with qualified candidates that we were able to interview in a very timely manner. Listens to what are needs are and establishes a search to meet those needs. Aggressive and follows through. We like you checking in with the placement after a few months after the actual placement. Thank you for doing that.

THIS IS HOW YOU BUILD THE BUSINESS OF YOUR DREAMS.
