Candidate Testimonials

I worked with Nancy Carey on my most recent career move. Nancy approached me about an opportunity and was great to work with throughout the hiring process – from submitting my resume to working through the offer details. Nancy always candidly answered my questions and provided me with as much insight as possible. She is friendly and approachable, so I felt entirely comfortable asking her questions which, in the past, I was uncomfortable asking recruiters. As a big law alum, she is very knowledgeable about the legal industry and what firms prize in candidates. She is a tremendous ally to have in your corner, and I would wholeheartedly recommend her. She is wonderful personally and professionally!
Labor & Employment Associate,
Placed at AmLaw 50 Firm
I worked with Nancy to switch roles from a midsize firm in a secondary market to a reputable firm in a large metropolitan area. Nancy is very personable and genuinely cares about her clients. It was her patience and attention to my specific needs that allowed me to find a new position that checked all my boxes. I am thrilled that my new role is not just another job but instead a lasting career and I have Nancy to thank for that.

Being in Chicago, Debbie and her colleagues get it. They know the market and took the time to understand exactly what we were looking for in a junior associate. I highly recommend her and the team at McCormack Schreiber for their experience and expertise in legal recruiting.

I have worked with several recruitment firms in the past, but my experience with McCormack Schreiber was by far the best. I felt as though my recruiter, Liz, had my best interests in mind as she helped me find a position that fit my skills. I am happy to say that after only a few weeks I was hired at a great firm, and I plan to be at this firm long term. I cannot recommend McCormack Schreiber enough!
Estate Planning Paralegal,
Placed at Established Chicago Law Firm
Liz recently placed me in my current position. I worked with her briefly in 2014 while looking for employment at that time, and nearly 8 years later she reconnected with me and matched me to a wonderful opportunity! She is kind and dedicated to the people she works with and for. She held my hand through each step of the interview and employment process, ensuring I understood the next steps and was comfortable all along the way. I will be forever grateful for her diligent and thoughtful placement and the direct, incredible impact it has made in my life.
Litigation Paralegal,
Placed at Real Estate Investor and Property Management Company
My words will not do justice to how highly I recommend Liz but I’ll still try! She is the consummate professional recruiter who you want to be working with, whether you have a job to place or you’re looking for employment. Her continued follow-up on my behalf and constant follow-through on her promise to stay in touch and keep me in mind for future positions meant we struck gold on only our third try! More so than any other recruiter I’ve worked with over the years, she really proved she means it when she says something! That loyal integrity is rare in this day and it should be celebrated and rewarded. She also took the time and care to really get to know both me and the places we were looking at to find not just any fit but the perfect fit. Again, do yourself a favor if Liz calls or your looking to hire or be hired, work with her early and often and you’ll see great results every time!
