"I've had the pleasure of working with Giacor Consulting for the better part of seven years. They not only place talent, they help develop it. They are much more than recruiters. They are consultants, giving career guidance based on their intimate knowledge of the industry and emerging trends. They're committed to the long-term success of their clients, not the short-term gains of immediate placements. They have been a pleasure to know and work with and I would be happy to speak to anyone interested in their services."

"Chris can be an important asset to your company and will act more like a member of your staff than an external recruiter. He will always place the needs of his clients ahead of his own, working above and beyond his regular work hours to make the right contact with the right candidates. Chris has a distinctive ability to both recognize and recruit candidates for a variety of pharmaceutical positions that not only satisfy the job requirements, but in most cases drastically surpass them. He performs a considerable amount of up-front work for you and will send you only the right fit for the positions you are looking for. He specifically handles specialty care pharmaceutical hires better than anyone I've ever worked with. You will never have to worry about getting the "wrong candidate" when working with Chris. His personal commitment to only seeking the best possible candidates and vigorously screening them is obvious. His work allows hiring managers to use their time to focus on covering the more detailed issues with each candidate. I would highly recommend Chris to anyone seeking one of the very best recruiting firms in the biotech and pharmaceutical field."

"I feel setup for success by this process, but also feel that it leads to better interactions between the hiring company and me."


Director BI Oncology,
AbbVie

"There's a reason that executive recruiters are called headhunters – the vast majority approach, and treat, candidates like a trophy to be caught, mounted and displayed as a sign of their prowess. Nick is different. Nick spent time, a lot of time, learning about me. Not just about my schools, experiences and deliverables, but about me as a person – what motivates me, what am I looking for, what kinds of skills do I want to gain and what kind of experiences do I want to have. I firmly believe this helped him to identify areas that would be a potential for me more effectively than other recruiters. Nick also differentiates himself in the prep work he puts into each interview and interaction. I believe I have spent more time talking with Nick in preparing for one interview than I spent with many other recruiters through an entire process. Its one more way that he is committed to making sure the fit is good, and making sure that the time spent between candidate and company is able to be focused on addressing the key issues. I feel setup for success by this process, but also feel that it leads to better interactions between the hiring company and me. Given how big these decisions are, every extra bit of insight to help determine the right path is valuable. Last, I would say that I feel that Nick really treats me as a valued client. I don't pay his fee, the hiring company does of course, but I feel he really cares about me and my career and that means a lot."

"I worked with Christopher O'Rourke as an employee seeking a new professional opportunity in the pharma / biotech industry on two occasions, one of which resulted in a job offer. Christopher is a truly professional recruiter. He takes the time to get to know his customer, and understand their profile and needs, and matches the job opportunity he submits them for. He acts proactively and follows up in a timely manner. He is willing to submit you for a position that is within your experience, but may still constitute a stretch - not all recruiters have this level of trust in their customers. And finally, he is very personable and provides insights into the industry beyond a mere job search. I highly recommend Christopher as a recruiter."
