Account Manager – Music Retailer

Our new hire is already completing his 2nd week and is really doing well. I enjoyed working with Lauren. She’s professional and has exceptional follow through. I will definitely keep her on my list to refer to other colleagues searching for potential candidates.

Hiring Manager – Financial Capital Firm

Matt originally started sourcing an Accounting Manager candidate for my team and after our business needs changed, he helped me quickly pivot to figuring out what the team truly needed by listening, understanding the industry, and being in the loop on emerging industry talent. Matt only presented top talent and scoured the market to find the best of the best. I quickly realized that, unlike many recruiters, Matt never ‘wasted my time’ when he sent me an email with a resume; it was always a resume I should be looking at. When we were at the 1-yard line he continued to go above and beyond and gave me language on the Minneapolis accounting & finance market and labor statistics to further support the nature of our hiring decision. Matt was a trusted partner throughout this whole process – flexible, professional & intelligent. I will FOR SURE be calling him in the future as the team grows.

Vice President – Building & Development Firm

Day 1 (yesterday) with our new hire was great! Day 2 (today) is starting off great too! : ) The process of working with Matt was very easy and he was extremely informative. He made the entire process less stressful!

HR Manager – Real Estate Company

I enjoyed working with Tom as he demonstrated great active listening skills and responded promptly with candidates and follow-ups. His communication made me feel that he was as invested in finding a solution as I was.

Financial Director – Healthcare Provider

We had a great experience working with Nicole. She took the time to understand the job we were trying to fill and find a good fit. She had great follow-up after candidates were interviewed.

CEO – Enterprise Technology Company

The experience with Claire was the single most positive experience I have had with a recruiter in my 28 years in the business. Claire was professional, attentive, proactive, helpful, and efficient in everything she did. Claire did an incredible job for us and made the experience of filling a critical role in our business a seamless and non-stressful event for the hiring manager and myself. As the CEO and founder of the company, I could not ask for more.

CEO – Construction Company

Matt was awesome, found us great candidates, and helped get us through a difficult process quickly and easily. Hopefully don’t have the need to hire in a rush again, but if we do, definitely will be coming back.

Chief Financial Officer – Consumer Products

Lauren Severson did an excellent job. Each candidate Lauren sent over had the requisite experience and credentials and Lauren stayed on top of things throughout the hiring process. I will definitely work with Lauren again in the future. SkyWaters fees are a little bit higher than another search firm I have worked with in the past, but the service level has definitely been worth it.

Director of Human Resources – Banking Services

We met a few years ago and I didn’t have a chance to utilize SkyWater until now, but I’m glad it finally happened. Teige was my initial contact when I reached out about this search. He and I go way back to when he was in college when he applied for an internship. We kept in touch via LinkedIn, and I was excited to see he had joined your firm. After an initial discovery call, he and Josh turned us over to Claire and Lindsay as our position aligned with their focus. You have amazing people on your team!

Director of Human Resources – Banking Services

I literally cannot think of anything Claire could have done better. I truly enjoyed working with her on this search. She is the perfect balance of professionalism and personality. I look forward to working with her next on our Senior Accountant search. Her dedication to our search, the thorough kickoff call, her follow-up throughout the process and the candidates she presented were top-notch! Our new hire is such a perfect match and when we laid out our job description, Claire immediately said “I think I have your person”! I wish all my recruiting processes were this easy and fun.
