It is rare that you work with someone as focused, perceptive, and determined as George Linke. I’ve had the pleasure of working with George for the past two years, during which time Linke Resources provided consulting services for REED Next and conducted a successful executive search for a position critical to the success of our organization. George has become a trusted mentor and advisor. His extensive knowledge of behavioral health, intellectual disabilities and autism, combined with his experience and skill in executive search, have made him extremely valuable to REED Next. I would strongly recommend George and Linke Resources to any behavioral health or human services-based organization looking to attract top talent who will excel in their company’s culture.
Over my twenty-five-year career, I have encountered many recruiters and mostly felt that I was simply a number to them. Many recruiters had very little interest in my career goals, values, and needs. Working with Linke Resources was quite different! We spent time reviewing my professional experience to assess my skillset and fit for positions. However, we also discussed my values, mission, purpose, career goals, and ideal work environment. I felt like I was being heard versus just being placed! Our discussions helped Linke Resources truly understand me and match me to an incredibly unique organization with values directly aligned with mine. I moved through the interview process while being completely supported through each step by Linke Resources. The process was honest, organic, and transparent from start to finish. I was offered and accepted a dream position with the organization that is truly ideal for me. I would not have found such a position without the support of Linke Resources. For that I am incredibly thankful!
