Aaaah that warm fuzzy feeling

I just got the nicest Linkedin reference from Steve Brown of Atlantic Recruitment:

Details of the Recommendation: “Nick is a triple A rated i Series Consultant. Every time I have recruited Nick for client projects he has delivered. But more than that, the feedback that I have had from clients has been that Nick always goes that bit further to bring value to the project in terms of ideas and team spirit. He is personable, very business minded and trustworthy. As a contract recruiter there is nothing I like more than to have clients raving about the contractors I recruit for them and clients have always done that with Nick.”
Service Category: IT Consultant
Year first hired: 1998 (hired more than once)
Top Qualities: Great Results, Personable, Expert

I’m a fairly relaxed, confident and self-assured guy but getting an email like that, out of the blue, has really made my day. I’m sure the rest of the code I write today is going to have a smile in it 😉

For reference, Steve is the owner and founder of Summit Recruitment, a UK based IT recruitment agency. He placed me in a few freelance positions while I was in the UK and even thrashed me soundly on the golf course once or twice. He is a top-notch agent and thoroughly decent chap to boot. If you are in the job hunting game – either looking for new IT players for your team or perhaps considering a new job then drop Steve a line.
