I have worked with Cindy for many years now, and would recommend her to any hiring manager or employment candidate. She is among the best in her profession.

I have used Cindy Fletcher for the past 4 years. She has done a great job in making sure she understands the profile, preparing the candidates and managing the process.
Business Unit Executive, IBM
I would recommend
working with Strategic Searches to any hiring manager in the software
selling space. The candidates were qualified and understood the opportunity.
Bottom line is that I got great candidates, personal attention and timely
responses to any issues or questions I had. I plan on using Strategic
Search again when I have a sales opening.
VP West Region DSSI
I have had
the chance to work with Cindy over the last 8 years, which in itself,
says worlds about her ability to match the right candidates with the
right companies during some really challenging times. What comes through
loud and clear is her realistic and professional approach to making
sure the match between candidate, position and company all work. She
is always at the top of my list.
Western Area Vice President
Search Solutions responded to our time sensitive request by working
beyond conventional business hours. In addition to providing high quality
candidates, they coordinated our departmental schedules to facilitate
a key placement ahead of our projected schedule.
Chief Operating Officer

Search Solutions is a pleasure to work with. They understand our business
and take the time to find candidates who meet our needs and specific
requests, not simply sending over 'warm bodies'. I was especially impressed
with their responsiveness and knowledge of the industry. They made what
can be a difficult process efficient and expeditious
Director, Western Area
I've known Cindy for around 10 years, and she has served as my "rock of sensibility" in sifting through various career decisions. Cindy has that rare ability to elevate a decision beyond the usual good-choice/bad-choice advice that's so common in search consultants, and her wisdom and "friendly ear", even when I'm considering opportunities that she has no financial stake in has been invaluable.
George Bravo, Account Executive, ClearOrbit
Cindy is a highly motivated and professional career manager. If you're looking for a recruiter who has the industry contacts and is motivated to see you succeed, I would contact Cindy right away.
Mike Azevedo, Regional Sales Manager, Sybase, Inc.
Cindy has the unique ability to really listen to a candidate to ensure a solid fit at both the company and candidate level. She is well connected, responsive and a wonderful sounding board during the job search process. I'd highly recommend giving Cindy a call if you are contemplating making a job change
Cindy is one of those handful of "quality" headhunters that you keep in your rolodex. She has never actually placed me. But in the 8 years since I've had the pleasure of making her acquaintance, the caliber of her communications, coaching and insight put her well above 99.9% of her peers. She has given objective feedback on all of my opportunities, whether she was representing me or not.
Mike Petonic, Sales Director, StrongMail System
I have been acquainted with Cindy for several years and have found her to be extremely intelligent, personable, outgoing and successful. Cindy has always gone the extra mile to properly align my professional goals and objectives with the right opportunities and I would look forward to working with her on one level or another again in the future.
I have worked with Cindy Fletcher many times over the past several years. She is an example for all other recruiters and her quality of service has raised the bar for all her competitors. Her network is outstanding and she has executive relationships with 100's of Fortune 1000 companies. Not only is she an excellent source for employment opportunities, but her team in impeccable at matching perspective employers to candidate’s needs and requirements. With Cindy's service you will never walk into an interview without a comprehensive view of the company, position and interviewing manager. I can't say enough about the professionalism and quality of Cindy's services. If I ever start a search for new employment I would happily use Cindy again. Furthermore, I strongly recommend anyone looking for new employment to contact Strategic Search Solutions.
Software Sales Executive
Cindy is a pleasure to work with because of her ability to focus on my career objectives and time frames; she reaches the "trusted advisor" status in my book!
Cindy did an amazing job helping me find my new sales job. I've worked with a lot of recruiters in the past but none have taken as much time as she did to focus on getting me interviews with the type of companies that I wanted to work for. Cindy was there for me start to finish and I truly enjoyed having the opportunity to work with her.
If you are looking for a West Coast Software sales recruiter, I recommend that you reach out to Cindy Fletcher. You will find her and her team to be insightful, responsive and overall good people.
Account Executive, IBM
Cindy Fletcher is a top flight recruiter and I think among the very best in her field. Cindy has incredible drive and is as well prepared as anyone in the industry. Her attention to detail separates her from the competition.
Most importantly, Cindy has a great instinct for matching the right candidate with the right opportunity and is passionate about helping people achieve their goals.”
Cindy is the consummate professional. She is amazingly
well connected, and in tune with the market she serves. She is keenly
adept at finding the right fit for both her individual clients and the
companies she serves. She ensured that I was thoroughly prepared to
address both business and cultural objectives of prospective employers.
She will work tirelessly to ensure you perfect placement!

Thank you for getting
me the best job of my life. I have been very happy at Microsoft, and
enjoyed some great success as well. I have been the #1 rep in the Northeast
territory three quarters running, and I am looking to continue the streak
Working with you

of my career. Thank you very much for your professionalism and outstanding

unique and professional experience.
Sales Director, Acsera Corporation
I wanted to send
you a quick note of thanks and to let you (and the rest of the world)
know that you are the most connected, knowledgeable recruiter that I
have ever worked with. You are “heads and shoulders above the
rest”! While you are not only aware of almost every job in Silicon
Valley, you also knew all the right people in every company that I proposed
gaining access into for an interview. You actually care about finding
the right match between open positions, personal skill sets and areas
of interests for your candidates. Keep up the great work!
Though I've worked
with many different corporate recruiters
few seem to handle the process with as little friction or stress as
Looking for work or making a career change is difficult to do on many
levels so it does help to have someone with experience and sensitivity
to work with through it all.
Percussion Software, Inc.
Just wanted to drop
you a line and thank you for your absolute commitment to assisting me
in finding the right next career move for me. I say this because 99.9%
of other recruiters are merely interested in placing people in jobs,
not working to find the best fit situation. Your total professionalism
and commitment to detail sets you far apart from all other recruiters
I have ever worked with. I will absolutely work with you again if and
when that time should arise. Again, thank you and best of luck going

worked to understand not only past experience and capabilities, but
what my short and long-term objectives are. By understanding both my
personal and professional objectives, they were able to present me for
only those opportunities that made the best sense for the prospective
employer and for me. They’re more than a recruitment firm. They’re
career counselors and trusted advisors.
Area Sales Manager
Cindy exceeded all
expectations of what a recruiter could provide! She took time to understand
where I was in my career and only presented me with opportunities that
were well-matched. Before each interview, she scheduled time to talk
through the company and hiring manager so I was prepared. Her professionalism
all along the way through really differentiated her from any other recruiter
I've worked with. I would (and have!) recommend her to anyone who is
looking for the next step in their career.
BEA Systems, Inc.
Thank you for such
an outstanding partnership. Previous to this search, I had never experienced
the level of support and attention to detail that you were able to provide.
Between that and your deep network within the software business, I know
we will work together again. Thanks again for being such a pro.

for your efforts and all of your hard work in helping me further my

It was a pleasure
to have phone calls returned in a timely manner, keen insight into the
ongoing processes, and an energy level that helped carry me through
an arduous process. I was particularly impressed with the fact that
