I met Dorothy more than 10 years ago: I had come back from England and was looking for an assistant role. I was assisted, listened to and advised at each stage of the recruitment process. I felt supported, which is very important.
I have since held several positions in various large companies and each time I had to change professional course, I contacted Dorothy Danahy. She was always attentive and of sound advice: a professional change isn't always easy but she finds the words to reassure and guide you.
The relationship doesn't end there, Dorothy contacted me to check things were going well once I had started my new job. She was always there when I needed her, throughout my career.
In short, a true relationship of trust has been established over the years!
Dorothy Danahy is a recruitment agency with dedicated personnel who has the candidates' interests at heart. It was with their help that I landed a great job. I have never been disappointed by their welcome or their support. I would warmly recommend this professional team that is led by a lady who has always given the advice needed to move forward.
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.
Dorothy Danahy is simply the best recruitment consultancy in Paris for bilingual Executive Assistants! I found the team highly efficient, professional, very approachable and smart. Not only they were interested in finding out about my requirements and interests but they also took into account my personality to find the ideal position I was after andÉ they also had clearly understood the type of Office Manager/Executive Assistant my employer was seeking for his company. It has been a win for all of us!
I would recommend Dorothy Danahy to candidates AND to employers; they do not simply fill positions they identify the right partnerships.
The team at Dorothy Danahy is faultless in their welcoming of candidates and the different staff with whom I had the pleasure of speaking to were always very friendly and extremely efficient.
The appointment I had to register with their agency demonstrated their perfectionism and I felt immediately at ease there.
Regular contact and follow-up during my interviews was testament to their skill and attentiveness: Dorothy Danahy recently found me a position and I am very happy there.
I recommend this company - they will measure up to your expectations.
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.
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 have known the Dorothy Danahy agency for many years. There is complete transparence between the recruitment team and their candidates.
Attentiveness and respect for the candidate and their profile are very important points for this company, which is why they never contact you with a position that isn't an exact match to what both you and their client are looking for. This team has always treated me with the highest level of professionalism!
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.
As soon as I entered the Dorothy Danahy offices, I knew I was in safe hands and that a suitable job would be found quickly for me. After completing language and computing tests, I then met with Dorothy, who perused my CV and we discussed my options. She put me forward for positions straight away and it seemed to me that the office had many clients and therefore a large network. This reassured me as I previously had been with another recruitment agency who didn't have many propositions for me.
After I left the office, it wasn't long before I got calls from the various recruitment consultants in the agency. They understood what I was looking for and I soon went on interviews. Two short weeks went by between my initial consultation with Dorothy and the signature of my employment contract - I think that speaks for itself!!
