I came to Choice after working for 12 years in the legal department of an entertainment corporation. Due to budget cuts and new management I had been laid off and felt very uneasy starting over in such a rocky job market. I signed with several agencies but Choice was the one that found me work almost immediately at a reasonable rate.

My counselors, Litisha and Lisa, were extremely supportive from the very beginning when I registered and would check in with me on the first day of an assignment to make sure I was comfortable in my new placement. They stayed in regular contact with me and kept me working steadily. They were flexible to meet my needs and when a death in my family forced me to take time off abruptly they were compassionate and went out of their way to make sure I knew that they were there to help me. Afterwards I was able to return to a long term assignment they had found for me. Throughout, Litisha and Lisa also looked for and set up permanent job interviews for me and thanks to Choice I am now working full time for a financial institution for a great salary with terrific benefits.

I recommend Choice to anyone trying to sort through the many employment agencies out there. The people at Choice go out of their way to rise above the level of service offered by other agencies in Manhattan. If you want to be treated as an individual and not just another person off an assembly line, Choice is the place to go!
