“Josh and his team recruited and placed me in my dream job at Princeton University during the most challenging time in our history. His knowledge, passion for excellence and high emotional intelligence and instincts for matching skill sets and background with new career opportunities is unparalleled in all my career placement experiences in recruitment, job search or otherwise. His personal engaging, caring and professional manner is without doubt one of the greatest experiences I have had in my life and these sentiments have been equally shared by the many colleagues in the industry that I work with and that Josh has placed. Thank you Josh for helping me and my family find and Enjoy a Greater Quality of Life!

Director of Operations, Princeton University

“Working with JDRQUEST was a critical component of our search. Josh Reich’s customized approach to working with Williams, as well as his in-depth knowledge of the industry brought us a highly qualified and diverse pool of candidates. We’re quite sure that, without Josh’s thoughtful work, we would not have had access to some of the non-traditional candidates with whom we met, and we’re thrilled with the outcome. Josh’s consistent availability during the search was a huge asset to us as the process unfolded.

The extra time and care that Josh takes to get to know the applicants provided us with a more substantial and nuanced feel for who they are. At the same time, his approach also provides the candidates with a clearer picture of who we are as an institution, ensuring that they have the opportunity to make a substantively informed decision while feeling well cared for throughout the process.”

I truly valued the partnership with Josh in our search which resulted in a very successful placement for us.”

Feedback from the search committee was extremely positive as well. They enjoyed working with Josh and found that his guidance and insights very helpful. From my perspective, Josh made himself available to us throughout. Regardless of other searches he may have been handling, our search always received prompt attention.”

“While JDRQUEST has assisted our Company in a number of searches, I especially recall one a few years ago, for a particularly sensitive, higher level person, at a time when we were trying hard to build strength in a particular area. The search resulted in hiring exactly the right individual, who has proven to be in fact a more significant contributor than we could have hoped. We are still grateful and expect to be for years to come!”
