Candidate Testimonials

"Deb at Nutmeg truly went the 'distance' for me in my career search! Although I was skeptical at first regarding the need for the 'inperson' interview, I found it to be of great benefit as Deb gave me constructive tips on my interview style and presentation after observing me in 'real life'. It also gave us a chance to connect on a personal level which I though lead to a deeper mutual understanding of my professional goals and expectations. 

Deb truly acts as an advocate, cheerleader ,advisor and coach during the arduous process of career advancement! I would wholeheartedly recommend Nutmeg to anyone wishes to advance their career in a supportive environment with proven outcomes!"
Brigid W., RN, MSN, CCM, CPHM, Director of Care Management
"THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!! You both have helped me to move forward with my life in a way that I never thought possible. I know when I say things like that you tell me that it was 'all me' but you helped me to get to a place where I felt confident enough to be myself, and for that to be a selling point for a new employer. I can't thank you enough for the long talks, the cheerleading sessions, the pep talks and most of all the coaching session over greek salads. You two are wonderful people, and amazing recruiters! Thanks for recruiting me!"

"Do you believe in angels?..I do now!! Rob and Deb took the job search from me and handed me a career opportunity of a lifetime. They matched my professional needs/desires with the institution's, walked me through the entire process and prepared me for the interviews, which can be quite stressful. Their in-depth knowledge/skill set in this area I found invaluable. Deb and Rob are so compassionate and funny! What started as a professional journey has now ended in an extended family. Just fantastic!"

Her attention to every detail throughout the entire process sets her apart from other recruiters I have worked with. I would highly recommend Deb and her team to assist in your recruiting efforts."

Lisa P., RN, MSN, Documentation Specialist
"When I met the recruiters from Nutmeg Healthcare I knew they were different from the rest of the recruiters. They took a special interest right from the start and called me before I even left the convention center. As I started the interviewing process the recruiters always called me the night before to give me a "pep talk" and to wish me luck. And after the interviews they were always the first to call me to see how it went. I always felt they were my cheering section along with my family. When I had received the job offers, the recruiters were celebrating with me over the phone. Throughout the process, the recruiters always made me feel special and they listened to what I was looking for in my career. They always wanted to find the perfect fit for me personally and professional life. I have been in my placement for over 3 years and I can not thank Nutmeg Healthcare enough for helping me finding me this placement and moving my career in a positive direction."

"From the first contact with Nutmeg my experience went so smoothly it made my transition almost seamless.

Deb and Jen could not have been more helpful and were with me at every critical point, no detail was left to chance. Meetings were set up for my convenience including times and locations.

She certainly gave me a sense of confidence and made the entire process go smoothly!"
