I also want to say that I respect the professionalism of your
office. It has been the most
professional staffing company I have encountered so far. With that comes confidence in HireQuality
Solutions, which is worth mentioning.
Thank you so much for helping me get this position. I really
like it here, everyone is great! I foresee myself being here for a while. It's been great working with you. I will
definitely send anyone I know who is looking for a job your way.
Emily, Thanks for your help in landing my new job. I appreciate everything you did for me.
Nan, I just saw you on LinkedIn and thought I would drop you a
quick note. Thank you for being so
helpful for me this time nearly 2 years ago.
I bounced myself into the best paying job I've ever had and your tips
helped get me there. I came across
things every now and then illustrating your success at Hire Quality Solutions
and I couldn't be happier for you, Sarah, and the rest of the team. I know you will continue to have success
because you will continue to treat people well---without regard to how it
immediately affects your business.
Emily, I wanted to send you a personal note to let you know I appreciate
all that you did in getting me a job interview. I was impressed with your professionalism
and timely manner in which you follow up on everything. Thank you for everything.
Thank you again for all your help and support through this
process. Your advice and feedback has been a tremendous help for someone who
has never gone through this before. You have been wonderful to work with and
are truly an asset to HireQuality Solutions.
Emily, I will
be honest, I don't think I have ever spoken to a recruiter and felt so at
ease to be myself. So, sincerely thank
you for that.
Also, I didn't think I could sound so skilled and good
on paper. I like the revisions; they are
very detailed and elaborate. I didn't realize that the things that I overlook are actually beneficial to a resume.
Nan, thank you
so much for the time you took with me today even after you figured out I was
not the right fit for your client! Your openness and honesty were extremely
helpful, and I will work hard on the solutions that you suggested. I left
your office feeling that I had someone in my corner for my work search.
just wanted to say thank you for all that you do for us. We all loved the
muffins that you got for us as we weren't expecting them but they are
delicious. We are truly blessed to have someone so supportive there for us
along the way of our journey through our new job. I don't think we could ever
thank you enough, but thanks again for everything you do. We truly appreciate everything you do for
Nan, I just wanted to write you a quick email to tell you how great Courtney
was to work with. She truly cares about people and listens to their needs and
wants. I am so thankful I got a chance to meet with her to help me with my
employment needs. It's very rare this day in age that people go above and
beyond and want nothing in return, except for your happiness, but that is what
Courtney has done for me. Please give her a sincere thank you for helping me.
Thank you for your time!
I wanted to formally thank you for matching me with the Staff Accountant
position. I saw the posting, but I
wasn't confident enough to apply. Thank you for giving me the encouragement I
needed and for advocating for me. Your experience and advice helped me get a
position I probably could not have gotten on my own. I thank you for that. I
am working hard to be ready for the first day, and I am excited. It was a
pleasure working with you.
worked with Courtney Lowry a few months back.
She took the time to listen to me and did follow ups with me to see
where I was at with my job search.

you were awesome and made my job search process a lot easier. Thank you, Courtney. I have and will continue to recommend
HireQuality Solutions to anyone I know who is looking for a job.

always been one of Make-A-Wish Iowa's most valued supporters, not only as an
individual, but through her company HireQuality Solutions. Recently, Nan was

learning opportunities available in a contract position as I continue to
search for full time employment.
Nan is very professional

beyond for her clients. I highly recommend Nan at HireQuality Solutions.

the time to help me.

I don't even know where to start....Thank you so much
for trusting in my abilities, believing in my talents and supporting me, as
an individual, in my search for full-time employment.
First, I appreciate your assistance in finding me
temporary employment. I was able to
learn a great deal through this experience, and have made some lasting
friendships as well.
Second, thank you for supporting and believing in me
and agreeing to represent me, when others were not willing to do so,
questioning my talents. This example
of "going the extra mile" is what sets HireQuality apart from so
many other recruiters. I felt you
recognized me as an individual, rather than a means to an end, and truly
understood me as a person.
Thanks again for everything!! I will recommend HireQuality
to anyone I have the opportunity to work with going forward....You're the
I've known and worked with Nan for years, She is
excellent at reading people and matching them to the best opportunity. I know
that when Nan contacts me about a position it will be something I will enjoy
doing and with the right work atmosphere. I have worked with other agencies,
but Nan goes the extra mile to make me feel as if I am important to her and
her business, If you are looking for someone to help you with your business
needs on either side of the desk I recommend HireQuality Solutions as one of

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your prompt and
professional assistance with the Alzheimer's Association in our search for a

extensive experience in your field you were able to identify and place a

Barb Filer, Development Director
Nan Boland was
instrumental in securing my position at Aviva making sure that it was a good
fit for both parties and when it was time to transition to HP the change was
almost seamless and pain free. The way she represents HireQuality Solutions
and herself is what set her apart from the other recruiting agencies that I
was looking at. Her knowledge and ability to grasp the big picture, translate
business needs into technical requirements and deliver complex, efficient and
cost-effective solutions in a variety of business environments is definitely
one of her many strengths in this market.
excellent communication skills, interacts easily with executives, technical
and non-technical staff, clients and vendors. In addition to all the
previously mentioned, she was able to make the most from my out-of-state move
as a consultant to Iowa and leveraged it to a financial benefit for myself.
For all these
reason, I would highly recommend to any and all of my colleagues to Partner
with Nan Boland and HireQuality Solutions in future endeavors.
I just want to thank you for taking the time to meet with me this morning. It

a very positive experience. Nan went above and beyond to make sure I
got the staff that I needed for our special program. She continued to

made for a great working relationship between the employees and our
agency. Through both the good and difficult times Nan was always there
to offer assistance. I know she had many customers to help and people
to interview but I always felt like I was her only client. The

Carol Wyckoff, Benefits
"Ms. Nan Boland was my recruiter during summer 2008
when I was a graduate student at Georgia Institute of Technology and was
looking for a finance job. It was really difficult to find job in that field
that time for several reasons-especially because of the financial crisis;
because I was a foreign student and needed visa sponsorship from my future
employer; because I was still a graduate student with no work experience in
In spite of all these problems, she helped me get the best job I could look
for. She kept close correspondence with me and learned very well about my
qualifications and career aspirations. I was impressed by how dedicated she
was to her mission to get an interview for me and to get an offer from the
company I could only dream of to be my employer. She was always very
positive, was a pleasure to deal with, and inspired me greatly. I really had
a feeling that she was as committed as me, and perhaps even more, to getting
the job. I really like my job and have long-term career interests with this
company. I am grateful to Ms. Boland for helping me get my dream job and
would recommend her as a recruiter with great enthusiasm."

does a great job of getting inside your head - to truly understand the type
of person you are looking to hire. She asks good questions and prepares
herself well for a search. Her focus is clearly on getting the right
"fit" of candidate for her clients. She is an out of the box
thinker and uses creative methods to deliver a quality hiring result.
experience with HireQuality Solutions was the best experience I have ever had
in a job searching process. I was really in a bad situation and was working
with two hiring agencies at that time. The one hiring agency, I think they
thought I was dead because I only heard from them maybe twice in a period of
three weeks. Nan Boland,
HireQuality Solutions, was very much in contact with me. I bet we talked
almost every other day. She kept me posted on all jobs that I was interested
in and when they came up. I felt like I was really in good hands and taken
care of. She was really in it for me to find a job and not on her own time.
It literally felt like every job that came up that I was looking for; she
would call me and get the ball rolling very fast. That is what I needed at
that time and she knew that. Dealing with her on the phone and at the office
was very much professional but also personal. She was very friendly and
understanding through the whole matter. I felt very comfortable talking with
her and telling her how I really felt about each job because I didn't want to
fall into a job that I wasn't qualified for or that I wouldn't be interested
in. She really got to know me as a person so that she could fit me in that type
of position. The other hiring agency I talked to twice and I didn't feel like
they knew me at all or what I wanted. I felt like I was a number and
with HireQuality Solutions I felt like I was the only client they were
dealing with. It was amazing! Nan is a very
great person, while always making everyone feel special. Her staff was very
friendly and at home. And to add to the fact, she has still been in contact
with me to see how I am doing and is going to take me out for lunch. That is
great way to do business because I now know that I will recommend her to
anyone in a job search and if I ever have any problems in the future, I will
definitely turn to her. Thanks Nan &
HireQuality Solutions for everything! I am so happy and so thankful!"
very much for meeting with me yesterday; I really did come away from it with
a very positive outlook and expectations! I firmly believe your agency is far
and away the best I've ever been to; very personal, relaxed, and upbeat,
which are qualities that are sorely lacking in placement agencies
lately. Again, thanks very much and I
look forward to the possibilities!"
feel like you don't have a purpose is discouraging. Especially when you believe you are good at
something but can't seem to get the opportunity to do it. I have been blessed with being good at what
I love to do but I needed help making the transition from what I thought was
my purpose to what it is now.
of my career I thought that being an IT Consultant was the job that I would
have forever but over the years this career proved to be all but
temporary. I would jump from job to
job, from contract to contract and from company to company being satisfied
with my work but not satisfied with my self.
The limited security and longevity as a Consultant is not an easy way
to base your life goals on such as family, fun and of course retirement. It really helps to know that you are needed
everyday rather then every so often. I
believe I do good work and have learned a lot in my career but I needed to
make a change where I was able to offer this everyday and feel secure about
Nan Boland and Sarah Havens at HireQuality Solutions made this
happen for me by looking out for my interests from the start. They searched for a job opportunity that

experience with Nan Boland has been very positive. I wanted to upgrade my position in the
Accounting field. I saw an ad in the
Des Moines Register and looked sat their website. On the website was an opportunity to
complete an application online, so I did.
Within an hour I received a phone call from Nan
Boland. We discussed
my application and within the next week I did the testing needed so they
could verify who I was and the work skills I had. Nan and I
discussed my future job hopes and within one month I had my "dream" job. I have held this position for nearly 2
years and I still am very pleased with my position. Since I received my new accounting
position, Nan has contacted me by phone,
mail, and in person. She always asks
how things are going and if I still like my position.
Nan is a great
character analyzer. She is very good
in explaining the company you will be interviewing with and she is also very
good at helping you determine your need and goals and then matching your need
