• Eric FeinsteinWhen I decided on a career change it appeared to me that the search was like driving in the country at night in a car with no headlights. Pretty soon I would have either hit a tree or driven off the road. Michael Schlager and his team were literally the lights in the dark, guiding me in the right direction. From the work on my resume, the sharpening of my "look" i.e. tie selection and improved business attire, to the mock interviews and intense constant coaching--literally could not have done it without them. Looking back at all the help, I fully realize that had I not used them, I would have been making my own mistakes and spinning my wheels for months and who knows, maybe even years instead of where I am now, in a career where literally the sky is the limit. Thank you again Michael and all of CSG! Read the Case Study

  • Gerry-Mintz-TestimonialMichael is a very dedicated, sincere, entrepreneurial and hard working individual. During my tenure as CEO at the American Banker Bond Buyer (ABBB) Division at Thomson Financial, Michael identified a niche opportunity in providing customized "Hiring Solutions" for our customers, far beyond the typical classified recruitment ads that we had traditionally sold. Through this program, which he developed and executed himself, he helped place hundreds of individuals and grew average revenue from about $400 to over $5000 per client. He also created several larger programs for upwards of $25,000 in revenue. His approach was creative and he built a loyal customer base. If you need to find a key individual who will go to great lengths in order to bring that "perfect hire" in the door, Michael is your man.Gartner logo

  • About 8 months after leaving General Tools, when it was time to make my next career move, I reached out to Michael at the Hiring Solutions Group to assist me in my search. Michael was there for me through every step of the process. He understood my specialized skillset and took the time to learn what I was looking for in my next position. We reviewed my strengths and he provided coaching in areas I was looking to improve upon. He actively called on several companies, setting up both over-the-phone and in-person interviews for me. He came on one of the interviews, as well, which was very helpful. Michael helped me establish my brand, fix my website, and review contracts; in short, Michael was a great support to me, which made all the difference in my job search. I highly recommend him.

  • Michael has recruited and consulted for me on many occasions (over 30). His commitment to our company and the candidates comes through both in his dedication and sincere insights into his work. On occasion, he got to know us well enough to say "you will like candidate A, but candidate B is best for you for the following reasons...". He was right on those occasions and many others. The metrics of the average stay of an employee worked for us as well (about 4.2 years). Our company grew substantially through his efforts.He also helped us acquire another companyand opened the doorGeneral Logo to business opportunities as well. I highly recommend him and his team.

  • NancyRawsonMichael and his team studied my background and redid my five page resume crafting a clear and complete picture of what I had to offer and where I wanted to go. That is what I would expect at a minimum of any similar consultant. However, they went the extra mile to get to know me and what I needed professionally and personally for my next career move and helped me develop a strategy and action plan to achieve it. As a well developed professional who has no need to go from company to company, it was the biggest decision of my life at this time. I wanted to determine what would be right for me in a holistic way, Michael looked into me and took that into account. We needed to research and fully discover the companies and the people I was considering. If you have the opportunity to work with him, you won't go wrong.
