"My recruiting experiences with Hunter Jr have been extremely good. He always responds on a timely basis, provides good applicant flow, and acts as a "partner", not a vendor throughout the process."

- Chief Talent Officer, Indianapolis, IN

"Hunter Jr. was friendly, professional, and highly accessible, prepared me well for my interviews, and offered honest, meaningful and useful feedback at every step of the interview process."

- Manager Selection Analyst, Chicago, IL

"Hunter was great to work with. He knew a lot about the WM industry and was able to provide valuable insight on WM firms, such as career planning, "typical" offers and other comparisons that I wouldn't have known had I not worked with him. I will and have recommended him to friends looking to switch jobs in the WM industry!"

- Senior Client Associate, Chicago, IL

"Hunter was very easy to work with and I felt that he definitely had my best interests in mind throughout the entire process. He followed up with me quickly which I really appreciated and gave me great advice that I will keep with me for awhile."

- Trust Relationship Officer, Kalamazoo, MI

"Hunter really kept me optimistic while setting realistic expectations throughout the process, he seemed to really understand what I was looking for, which made things very easy.  Hunter really took time to understand what I wanted in my next opportunity, and from there, he quickly identified a few very good options. Hunter brought me two great opportunities relatively quickly, and both were what I was looking for in a career move. Hunter was very helpful and supportive throughout the whole process - he kept me excited about the opportunities and was there for me when I needed him for coaching around the offer and resignation process. Hunter exceeded my expectations on all fronts and really took the time to understand what I was looking for, and delivered multiple solutions." 

- SVP, Senior Private Banker, $22 Billion Bank and Trust Company

"Hunter Jr. from start to finish was professional and extremely attentive. I believe he did a great job and would recommend him."

- VP, Middle Market Commercial Banking, Chicago, IL

"Hunter took a lot of time to learn about my background and what I was interested in. He knew I wasn't interested in a position at a larger institution, so the positions he presented me were all RIA based. Most recruiters have the reputation of trying to fit a square peg into a round hole. Every position Hunter presented was reasonable and if it was one in which I wasn't interested, he quickly moved on." 

-Tax & Financial Planning Manager, Grand Rapids, MI

"Hunter and The Judson Group were far and away better than any other recruiter I've worked with. They really do their homework to help align your career goals with potential job opportunities. They also really hone in on the interview prep and help you be your best in the interview."
