"In this day and age of LinkedIn and internet recruiting, it is extremely easy for a recruiter to hide behind his or her computer and simply take an ivory tower approach to the hiring process.
I have utilized Ian in a recent job search for a managerial position. During the whole process Ian demonstrated himself to be the consummate professional. He kept his word on the communication word and followed up frequently.
I will definitely utilize Summit Solutions going for in a role that will require recruiting as he epitomizes the Summit Solutions approach to client service."

Thank you so much for meeting with me today. I thoroughly enjoyed our conversation. I am so glad that I came down to meet with you, and I think the $18.75 ticket that I got was more than worth it!
Hope you have a good weekend. I look forward to speaking with you again in the near future.

Good afternoon Lino and Estelle,
I hope this email finds you well. After taking the weekend to think about our conversation and look into the details of your client, I believe that this opportunity will provide me with a unique experience and provide me with opportunities for growth that I may not have attained in the more conventional careers I was considering.
I would also like to thank you and Estelle for taking the time to meet with me and have what turned out to be one of the best discussions I have had to date. It was eye opening and amazing to finally meet with individuals who understood me, my thinking, and my ambition in life.
Again, I thank you both greatly for that meeting.
I look forward to working with you through this process.
Regards,Kris | Jul, 2012
I would like to thank Ian and Estelle for helping me on my job hunting process. Obviously you both care for the candidates. Your approach is personalized on each candidate based on our skills and experiences.
For Ian: I really appreciate the time you spent on me, making sure that I was on top of everything, making sure that I explored the company first before going for the interview, explaining to me the hiring process, what to expect and what to prepare for the interview.
For Estelle: Your wisdom and good judgement and feeling where I came from are really appreciated. Your constructive criticism on my resume making sure that it is well updated has not been put to waste.
I wish all recruitment firm has the compassion that Summit Solutions has. Thank you guys and more power!!!John T. | Jun, 2012

It was a tremendous pleasure to work with Lino Ferrara and Summit Solutions in securing a significant position with a tremendous organization.

Lino is truly a reliable, honest and professional recruiter. His detailed knowledge of his client's expectations, allowed him to match my talents successfully. Lino is personable and I will always remember how relaxed I was in his presence. He understood my career goal and exceeded in meeting my expectations!Yolanda | Oct, 2011
I would be remiss if I didn't send a thank you your way as well.
Thank you for taking notice of my résumé, when you see so many in a day and especially for being so quick to respond and arrange for me to meet your client. Your dedication to your work is unparallelled in my experience. Your availability and guidance has been a huge support in the job interview stage. I really appreciate that you are not just trying to put a warm body in a chair. You are ensuring a good fit for both employer and future employee. Thank you for being upfront and honest with me from the very beginning. I have had such a positive experience with you already that I would have no trouble referring strong candidates for your future needs or for that matter, letting my HR contacts know about your recruiting expertise. Please do not hesitate to let me know how I can help.
In the meantime Jarrod confirmed that he is checking his email this weekend, and stated that he looks forward to our meeting next week and that he will arrange it on Monday. Already it has been great to connect with three new people, including yourself. Thank you for making a traditionally stressful process actually very enjoyable and... fun.
Have a great weekend and although we will talk before you leave, I hope your trip to Montréal goes very well in work and weather.Marlene | Aug, 2011
Hello Mr. Ferrara
Thank you for taking the time to review my resume and skills set. The interview we had was quite informative and insightful. Based on the talk we had I have found it in the best interest to focus on school and acquiring more Canadian education and stay on longer at my current job to have a consistent resume.Albert | Aug, 2011
Thank you so much for the guidance and advice.
I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed our chat today. You were a fantastic interviewer and a great laugh. You probably learned more about me during our "chat" than any interviewer I have known.
I look forward to hearing from you,
PS - After some thought, buy a place in France....Julie | Jun, 2011
From the moment I met Lino his wisdom, breadth of experience and personable approach was refreshing. His ability to provide feedback, suggest improvements and ensure I have an effective professional profile was and still is vital to this day.Omar | May, 2011
It has been my pleasure to work with Summit Solutions over the past several months to help our organization recruit qualified sales staff for our expansion needs across Canada. To date our company has secured four new Sales Representatives and I have confidence the team at Summit Solutions will continue to provide us with the quality of sales professionals we expect and require to fulfill our needs. Rishi, thanks for your support!David - Director of Sales | May, 2011
I had an interview with you regarding possible sales positions. You gave me the best advice and I am now employed for a company that you had described as my Ideal. Med to small with a fair amount of autonomy.
Best regardsLawrence | May, 2011
I would like to thank you for taking the time to meet me on Monday, you gave me some good career advice that I can use in my job search. I have been looking on line at some of the marketing, customer service and sales jobs and thinking about applying to them. I also looked at some marketing courses at Seneca. I had a look at the sample resume you sent me and it looks good. Its less then 1page and gets to the point. I will change the format on my resume and send them out. Also I will try and keep an open mind. Thanks againAnthony | Apr, 2011
Lino is an amazing guy with very clear objectives on any mission he takes on. I have known Lino for years and his acumen to read right into the middle of what is important is one of his key strengths. Lino is razor sharp in understanding what is critical to a candidate and what clients are looking for in their potential employees.Sudhama | Jun, 2010
Lino and I first met in 2006, as I was beginning a job search. While that particular search resulted in me finding a position on my own, Lino stayed in touch with me over the next few years. When I entered my next search, Lino was the first person I contacted. He took the time to understand what I was really looking for - and instead of putting just anything in front of me, he put me in touch with companies and positions that aligned perfectly with my personal and professional goals. We still talk on a regular basis - he goes the extra mile to put the personal touch in his work. His passion and enthusiasm for his business shine through every time I chat with him - usually on Saturday evenings!!Jessica | May, 2010
There are lot of recruiters out there, but Lino was one of the few who was able to deliver on his promise to help me land a career job and he put me on the right path.Christopher | May, 2010
Lino taught me to be aggressive, hard working and strive for success. He has taught me many things within the staffing industry and I gained valuable experience working closely with him.Neil | May, 2010
