What our customers say

Shawn Dotson, Director of Innovation at Coca Cola

“I am pleased to write this testimonial for Caroline Crotty, the consultant with Pod Talent who helped me find a position as a Principal Scientist and Director of Innovation in the food and beverage industry. Caroline was extremely professional and understood the specifics of the requirements of this job, as well as the corporate culture of the company in question. The position was very different from anything that I had done before. Nevertheless, Caroline helped me see that my skill set and interests were a perfect fit for the position! She coached me and helped me vastly improve my interviewing skills to ensure that I had the best chance to succeed during my interviews. And once I secured an offer, she helped me obtain a great salary and benefits package. Throughout the entire experience, she was friendly, approachable, helpful and patient, often going the extra mile and rendering her services even after office hours. I cannot recommend Caroline and Pod Talent highly enough. In conclusion, let me state again that Caroline is an outstanding consultant and I, unequivocally, would recommend to any of my compatriots that, if the need arises, it would be in their best interest to work with her and Pod Talent.”
