Being accompanied in your job search is a very delicate task which necessitates good communication, comprehension of candidate priorities and an accurate evaluation of their skills and of course, their expectations!
I observed all of these qualities in each member of the Dorothy Danahy team and for me, this was essential in establishing mutual trust. Thanks to Dorothy Danahy I found the support, advice and encouragement that I needed to take on new professional challenges.
The Dorothy Danahy team helped me to find a new job.
I would particularly like to congratulate my Consultant, who was in charge of my file, for the quality of her work and for her attentiveness.
I am very much appreciated her ability to listen and her sense of judgment.
Through her professionalism and understanding of the role, she was able to meet the expectations of both myself and of the client company.
I'd like to thank the whole team for their kindness.
I really appreciated Dorothy Danahy's professional and pertinent approach, which is essential in matching candidate profiles with client requirements. They enabled me to find a bilingual Executive Assistant position in a large international group, which proved to be very exciting.
I was also very grateful for the warm welcome and service that I received.
A big thank you to the whole team for their efficiency and kindness!
When I met Dorothy for the first time it was in 1996. I was only a "baby" then as she likes to say...
Fifteen years have passed and when I look back over my career, I realise how precious her help, guidance and support have been to me.
My career couldn't have been what it is without you.
I have now known the Dorothy Danahy team for more than 10 years, and the agency have helped me to find relevant, high-quality jobs on several occasions.
First of all, at Dorothy Danahy, it is the welcome that is impressive. In addition to the traditional tests, it is the interview that really makes the difference. There is an attentiveness and a real desire to truly understand the candidates and their motivations. I told myself Òfinally, people that are really interested in us assistantsÓ and not a millionth recruitment agency recruiting an assistant to make their client happy and understanding nothing.
Then comes the customer service; always the same consultant, we don't have to continually repeat our background, our career, our wishes. And the positions that they propose are a perfect match to our experience and temperament: never a nasty surprise, never any stonewalling.
Top notch professionals who know how to match the right candidate to the right job.
From the first time I met them, I had an excellent contact with the consultants at Dorothy Danahy. As a young assistant with an unusual profile, they listened and spent time with me in order to understand not only my background, but also my expectations and my personality.
I was immediately convinced by their approach, more centred on the candidate that on the job description. They were able to see beyond my CV and propose positions that truly met my expectations.
I'd like to thank all of the people with whom I was in contact at Dorothy Danahy for their availability, for having taken the time to reassure and encourage me if my application wasn't accepted, but also for their precious advice which helped me to optimise my CV and prepare for interviews.
Today, I regularly recommend Dorothy Danahy to people I know, and I make sure always to mention the quality service I received.
No longer content with my former job, I signed up with Dorothy Danahy and was called back instantly to come into their Paris offices and meet with one of their consultants. I was immediately made to feel at ease by their lovely and friendly team, and had a long discussion about what I was looking for, as well as their current roles available. In the several weeks that followed, I was called regularly and presented a number of different roles corresponding to my profile, and to my career goals. In my experience of bilingual recruitment companies in Paris, Dorothy Danahy was by far the most reactive, and offered me the widest range of different roles, all of them in highly reputed companies. The consultants also paid close attention to the criteria I was seeking in a position, as I was not seeking an entirely classic assistant role.
Within a few weeks, I was offered a CDI in a fantastic and dynamic Executive Search firm, where I fit in straightaway. Dorothy Danahy even contacted me by post to congratulate me on the role and checked up how things were going after the initial few days. Almost a year on, I am still happy in my role but would definitely recommend Dorothy Danahy to anyone looking for an interesting assistant role in Paris.
I have recently found a permanent position through Dorothy Danahy.
I have been registered with them for around 2 years.
After the negative outcome of an interview a year ago, Dorothy Danahy proposed other roles to me but I was unable to accept as I was temporarily working abroad. Having said that, on my return to France, I immediately got back in touch with Dorothy Danahy who were delighted to assist me with my job search.
Put simply, DOROTHY DANAHY HAS THE RIGHT SKILLS, APPROACH AND KNOW-HOW.
I recommend that you get in touch with Dorothy Danahy if you are looking for someone to finally recognise your talents.
A bilingual assistant for American multinationals, I always gave Dorothy Danahy and her team of "Wonder Women" a call when I wanted to find a new challenge and take the next step in my career.
Candidates are extremely well chosen, the jobs perfectly selected to best suit our professional qualities but also our personalities, all of which allows our bosses to succeed in their work.
The team accompanies me in my career but also in my life, as they never fail to keep in touch or to make sure that I am happy in my job.
Thank you Dorothy Danahy who is the agency to choose and to which I am very proud to belong!
I never actually chose to be an assistant. It was just the way things turned out for me and the natural conclusion to the line of education I chose to follow. I now realise, however, that it really was the perfect job for me because it meant that I got to do what I really enjoy in life; helping people. To be an assistant it is so important to feel a sense of service in your job and to have a very optimistic approach to life. You are constantly under pressure to perform and therefore organisation, flexibility and of course enthusiasm are all essential for the role.
I first met the team at Dorothy Danahy SAS in August 2004 and was rapidly placed in a globally renowned financial group in September 2004 and have been working there for 6 months. I couldn’t believe how quickly things moved for me and it was really thanks to their help and efficiency that I am where I am today!
If I could give one piece of advice to those looking for an Assistant position on the market today, it would have to be to improve your English. The job market is already hard enough as it is, so having English is an invaluable asset in order to get ahead of the game. It is also essential to remember that there will always be obstacles to overcome when it comes to finding and then keeping a job, however they should be viewed as challenges and not dilemmas because there really are no problems, only solutions.
