Testimonials

KLA is my trusted advisor for career placement and for hiring, and happens to be the “go-to” firm in the DC metropolitan area for IT sales professionals. Each candidate is afforded the time to go through an intensive screening process… No other firm takes this much interest in the caring and nurturing of long term relationships… I have also used KLA for hiring multiple members of my sales team. The huge value that KLA brings is that the candidates have been thoroughly vetted, so they bring me talent which I know is going to be a good fit; it’s just a matter of seeing if the chemistry is there.

Working with KLA was a personalized experience designed to connect me with the right organization while also realizing my market value… Ken helped me realize my potential [and] find a new job where I could use more of my skills to create value and excel–plus a 50% increase in base pay. Other recruiters I worked with didn’t have the experience to offer guidance on various opportunities and seemed like they’d be happy if I just took something. [Ken] was very candid about informing me of the pros and cons and upsides of each opportunity. That’s why I recommended friends to KLA. Read H. Tran’s full testimonial here.

I came to Ken Leiner Associates under a great deal of stress­ – [after] a corporate layoff and having an offer rescinded… After being in th­e hunt for about four months, talking to multiple companies and interviewing on my own, a great opportunity led by KLA was solidified in less than 30 days. It was pivotal for me to find a role that would leverage the depth and diversity of my experiences and where I could make an appreciable impact to the business… [KLA] demonstrated just how important it is that a top-notch search firm conduct due diligence… I landed an amazing professional opportunity in a role that… will leverage 95% of my background! I could not be happier… and had a seamless experience. Read S.L. Williams’ full testimonial here. S.L. Williams, HP Enterprise Services
As I settle into my new job I can’t help but think how grateful I am to you. Working with Deb and the KLA team was a great experience for me. Deb’s ability to get me in front of the right company matching my ideal job and skill set was amazing. She streamlined the interview communication and experience in a highly professional manner ultimately resulting in the best possible job and compensation for me. While I don’t expect to use your services anytime soon. There is only one recruiter I plan to use if I ever need to look for a new job!

“Ken was great to work with. He understood what I was looking for. He understood my capabilities, he connected me with the right companies, got me the interviews, and at the end of the day placed me with my number one choice.
