"In my career I have worked with several recruiting business partners yielding results that varied from good to average. Aldebaran Associates International is in a class by itself. They have consistently exceeded my expectations over the last six years. Their services are distinctly characterized by professionalism, innovative business solutions and commitment to quality. Aldebaran Associates’s ability to anticipate my needs, provide customized recruitment strategies and service my account with detail and attention, makes them an invaluable ally in the business community."

"I was applying for jobs for a couple of months and couldn't get an interview. I was contacted by Aldebaran about an open position - one week later I had an interview and two weeks later I had accepted an above market offer with a great company. There's no doubt in my mind that I’d still be looking for work today if it wasn't for the Aldebaran team.”
