Jaime at Evolve Talent is an incredible recruiter. In six months, he hired over 100 people to bring our company from 18 people to 120 people. Additionally, he hired four full-time recruiters, managed them, and built our processes to ensure our recruiting success in the years to come. Jaime is one of the best recruiters I’ve had the opportunity with whom to work.
