Your expertise in promptly identifying only the most qualified candidates without a flood of resumes and endless follow-through has been a total breath of fresh air (in a world filled with less than reputable recruiters!)

"I've been consistently impressed by how Jackie's team does their homework. For them, finding the right person for the job is puzzle, and they look at all the angles. Others just throw bodies at a potential employer, but this firm strives to hit the bulls-eye the first time, and every time."

FROM CANDIDATES

"Jackie is by far the most professional, polished and well-connected recruiter that I've had the pleasure to work with. I was contacted by Jackie when a particular opportunity arose matching my career experience. She quickly and effortlessly matched me to multiple opportunities in no time at all. I was impressed with her ability to make the whole hiring process truly easy. Thanks Jackie!"

K.F. Danbury, Connecticut

"It was a pleasure to work with Jackie and her staff during my recruitment process at Viceroy. Jackie and her team were always prompt, courteous and professional. Because of Jackie's guidance through the process, I was able to land my dream job on a Caribbean Island. I would not hesitate to utilize Ducci & Associates for my next great opportunity and I would highly recommend her to anyone else."

L.P. Pass Christian, MS (& Anguilla, BWI)

"It was a great experience working with Jackie and her team! They were extremely responsive, professional, knowledgeable and fantastic liaisons to have while going through the interview/hiring process. She made sure I had all the information possible when interviewing and always helped me to put my best foot forward when meeting with potential employers"

M.W. Bethesda, MD

"I had the pleasure of working with both Jackie and Alexis on a particular search, and they were stellar in every way. The staff at Ducci understands their client needs and business. They take the time and care to make sure that any resumes they pass on are truly a match by understanding that it takes more than skill set and experience to make a placement; it also takes cultural fit. I highly recommend Ducci & Associates."

C.F. New York, NY

"I was discovered by Jackie as a possible candidate for an opportunity I would have never normally applied for on my own. While I saw the position as a pipe dream, she saw a match. Although I was not seeking employment, Jackie was able to encourage and guide me through my own apprehension and self-doubt. After almost a year in my new position, I couldn't be happier. Jackie has not only fulfilled her obligations as a recruiter to her client, she has also drastically altered the path of my life and that of my family. Without Jackie I cannot honestly say I would have found happiness in my career, nor would I have found a company to call home until retirement. Many thanks to her and her staff for all that they do to better the lives of everyone involved."
