John and the CareerPro team have been incredible to me. I was recently laid off and John has helped me to regain confidence when interviewing. He has helped me to reimagine what I can bring to the table at a new position and why somebody should employee me over other applicants.

From Business: Customer Reviews: Hello Scott, The resume and cover letter look great, thank you! You clearly have a gift for expressing many ideas under a scarcity of words...it…
When I started looking for a new job three years ago, a friend with a high-level marketing job told me to apply to Frankel. She said the best temps she'd worked with always came from there. I went in, took the tests and had an interview. I already had a retail job so I told Frankel I could not accept any assignments that were not temp-to-hire or at least long-term. I also had fairly specific requirements as to the types of admin jobs I was looking for. It took about ten months before I was offered and accepted a temp-to-hire position. (I'd interviewed for several other jobs along the way but they selected other candidates.) The "temp" part worked out for me but not the "hire" part. It was too bad but sometimes things aren't the right fit, and in retrospect I'm glad I didn't get hired at that company--too much drama.Three months later, while I was mounting my own job search, Frankel called me with a long-term temp position at a finance company--one I NEVER would have found on my own. I interviewed, was offered the job and accepted. After eight months as a temp the company hired me and I've been there for an additional two years. It is a wonderful place to work, and again, I know I totally owe Frankel for getting me in there.If you don't treat Frankel as your only option and you aren't in a hurry to find a temp-to-hire position right away, they could be a great fit for you. I worked with four different recruiters while interviewing for various jobs and they were ALL responsive and straightforward. I highly recommend Frankel Staffing.
Simply the best!! Throughout my years and various US States of employment, I've used a number of staffing agencies. Most of them found me some kind of a job, and a select handful found me worthwhile employment, but only Five Star Staffing found me a career. They have absolutely changed my life for the better. I first went to see them in late May 2017, and a month later, I started a new job for better pay, with better hours, working for much better people. I am truly in the happiest position in my entire life, and it's absolutely due to Five Star Staffing. Donna gave me priceless guidance through each round of interviews, and Christopher was extremely reliable with the upkeep, proactively ensuring that I had my timesheets in and that I got paid on time. I have never encountered a staffing agency (and I've worked with a bunch) to be so concerned with their people the way Five Star is! The level of service that Five Star provides is simply unparalleled!
Excellent resource for any professional in transition looking for guidance with next career steps. John is a strategic thinker who is well connected in the industry and he puts his clients' needs first.
Never did anything for me. I have a college degree and a very diverse resume with in-demand skills. Don't waste your time with this place
Avoid like the plague. Frankel claims to be willing to help you find a position matching your skill set, however all you are likely to get are a bunch of emails that say:Thank you for writing. While your credentials are impressive they will not work for this particular position. The client has several candidates whose most recent roles are almost identical to the position here and will likely go in that direction. I would be happy to hold onto your information and keep you posted as other suitable positions develop. I appreciate your interest.Copy pasted listless responses that do nothing but show disrespect and detachment. I interviewed with Frankel to do a skills inventory and have tried to find a job through them for the better part of half a year. I have NEVER received a callback, NEVER received an email that was not the above mentioned, and NEVER received any support via phone or email. I called them to ask if I was doing something wrong and it basically came down to, "We don't need you." Unless your credentials EXACTLY match their requirements, don't bother, they won't help you. Even if they DO exactly match, as mine have in the past, you will still likely get that same email over and over again. Frankel has shown nothing but disrespect and disregard for my time.
Thoroughly Unimpressed: Called Frankel Staffing while visiting Raleigh to research the area and the job market for possible relocation. Representative who spoke with me was very complacent and seemed unknowledgeable (she sounded like a "kid"). Her answer to every one of my questions about job opportunities, area employers, pay rates, etc. was, "it varies". She showed no interest in making an appointment with me to come into the office. I would assume this is indicative of the services this firm provides - non-proactive.
“Career Pro Inc. offered me a paid internship this past summer. I had been aware of the business for a number of years through neighbors and friends, as well their support of our local swim team. I felt like it would be a great opportunity to learn and grow, especially having seen former interns and employees go on to work at successful companies such as Google, Deloitte, and many others. CareerPro Inc. has allowed me unprecedented access to career insights that I would have never received. I was treated like a valued asset to the business immediately and throughout my time. John O’Connor has truly changed the standard for customer service and quality of care in the career consulting space, approaching each client’s situation from a personal level and providing them with the guidance necessary to help them reach their career goals. I will take these experiences with me throughout the rest of my education and career. I am extremely thankful for having this opportunity.”
The CareerPro Inc. team reached out and helped me see my true potential to upgrade my career and reach higher than I thought possible. That encouragement gave me the confidence I needed and raised my employment expectations.
CareerPro Inc. and all associated is the consummate professional small business and ultimate networking and career resource. First off, I thought I had a good resume but quickly realized I was not aware of the full potential of a great resume. As a marketing expert I choose my connections and vendors wisely. Because relationships over time matter I also chose CareerPro Inc. to refine and help me blog, brand and develop my own new career paths three times. Change is hard and a change in careers can even be harder. I love to network and help other clients of CareerPro Inc. as they go through outplacement and consider new entrepreneurial ventures. Comments from recruiters and interviewers were amazing about my brand and interview skills. John and the CareerPro Inc. team have been a great resource and I will be for them.
