Candidate Testimonials

As a very experienced expert, Tim immediately spotted the problems on my resume and provided me with very clear and detailed guidance. I am extremely grateful for the honest and constructive feedbacks. Tim is a true professional in the supply chain, purchasing, and operations fields. I wished that I could have known him sooner!

Dear Tim, I must admit even though I am already so impressed by Canada, your professionalism, honesty and just plain great advice is second to none and overwhelmed me further. Your feedback is very concise and factual. It is not everyday that one finds people like you. Once again I thank you immensely.

I fully understand what is needed. I am also working on altering my CV to a more Canadian standard. In South Africa CVs are expected to be lengthy and comprehensive so it needs work. Hope to speak to you soon.
Tim, I just signed the offer and sent it back. The opportunity has great potential, and I accepted it. I appreciate everything you have done to help me acquire this position and hopefully we will meet in Toronto this spring when I do my In Residence Week (IRW).

I will complete my 4 remaining SCMA courses, even though they are overlapping a bit, to get my designation this year! Thank you again.

Hi Tim, it was really nice hearing from you today. It's been going well for me and in the short time I've been here, I have changed the face of our department through the implementation and elimination of processes. Our CFO has expressed his gratitude, and had also pulled me into a meeting extending his complete support and I'm running with it, especially in the face of resistance which oddly comes from the least expected places - which is something I remember you preparing me for.

I really owe you a world of gratitude for all of your assistance and don't know If I had ever thanked you. If you would ever like to discuss further please feel free to call me on my cell anytime.

I believe your service is extremely invaluable and significant to SCMP candidates pursuing the right Supply position. In the past, I brought my resume to both employment counselors and HR graduates whom have edited my resume but it did not fully promote the SCMP education and experience as you have done.

Iím looking forward to reviewing your ďTIPSĒ booklet for advice on resume design, interviewing techniques, negotiating supply chain employment agreements, etc. Thank you so much for your continuous support and advice.

As for your services, I can't say enough about the excellent 'one on one' review and how much the personalized coaching has helped. It was exactly what I have been searching for. Over the years very few have taken the time to actually review my resume and given direct and positive, constructive feedback.

In fact you are the only one to provide logical explanations and guidance that can be applied to the job search process. My resume now makes sense. You provided the total 'coaching' package. I highly recommend that people in a serious job search to contact your organization. I have already sent one person your way.

You placed me for a client of yours in Burlington almost 10 years ago. I keep telling friends how much appreciation I have for you helping me land my first professional procurement job in Canada as a Buyer.

I was so new to Canada, that I didnít have a car yet; and I donít know if you recall, but you actually drove me to Burlington for the interview. Now thatís commitment. Thank you!

Supply Chain recruitment is truly an art, there are a lot of recruiters out in the world who don't have a clue about Supply Chain or recruitment. Tim Moore Associates is not one of these. Tim is a total professional and I highly recommend him"

Hi Tim, long time no hear. Iíve been very busy here and we are having a banner year. I donít think too many retail companies can say the same. Iím coming up to my 10th year this month thanks to you...

I am just writing to express to you and your organization my thanks for assisting me in obtaining the Senior Buyer position.

Paul Woodrow
When I attended the PMAC In-Residence week (to prepare for the final exam and obtain my SCMP accreditation) in May 2012, I heard your excellent speech about building a professional SC image, ethics, and personal branding. I admire you and your company very much, and it's my honor and pleasure to connect with you on LinkedIn.

Even though I do not have immediate need to change careers, I do sincerely hope to keep in touch with you and should the time and opportunity present itself, we may be able to work something out.
M. Z.
Dear Tim , I really appreciate all your help during my job search. You generously shared your expertise and experience with me, and I truly appreciate the support and the networking contacts you have given me during this time. Your expert advice and support prepared me well to land the Manager, Corporate Affairsí position.

I appreciate your confidence in my abilities and I am excited about the opportunities and challenges your client has offered me, and am I confident that they will be very satisfied with my work too. Thank you for your continued support.
R. S.
Your service was excellent! I really appreciated the pre-interview motivation and I was mindful of some of the key points of discussion during my interview. In the past I had used recruiters who lacked comprehensive knowledge of the position they were trying to fill. Your insight into what was required really helped me focus on how my background fit into the role. Thanks again for helping me get the job I wanted!
Kirsten H.
Hello Tim, I attended your resume workshop held at the Ontario Institute Office of the Purchasing Management Association of Canada (OIPMAC). It was a great workshop and I do not have any appropriate words to thank you for your passion and valuable time you spent with us in providing significant tools to help us in our job search.

I have already spoken with one of your Account Managers Ė Nancy, and she is looking after me. I am very confident that with your help and support I will be in a new supply chain challenge!!
CB
Tim, I would be happy to provide an endorsement for the services you provide. After taking a two year sabbatical to care for a family member, I wanted to re-enter the purchasing field. You introduced my portfolio to a local firm in the service sector what was in need of someone of my caliber. Fortunately, they were interested in my qualifications and saw past the fact that I had been out of the workforce for some time. I received a call from them today and accepted an offer! Thank you very much for your advice and support in this opportunity, from the initial introduction, through the interview process, reference checking and final offer negotiation. It came right in time for the holidays!!
Louanne B.
I just wanted to drop you a quick note to advise you that Iíve been successful in my job search, I have accepted a Buyer-Direct Procurement position at a pharmaceutical company. Please go ahead and remove my candidacy from any potential positions you have there.

I also wanted to thank you for your tips booklet, I found it immensely helpful during my job search, while interviewing and while comparing offers. I referred to it often, in addition to the many resources archived on your website. They were all a wealth of help...thank you so much!
Mary
I would just like to take a few minutes to thank you for the time you put into placing me with Eco-Tec. I am very happy here. I enjoy the company and the work very much, I did make the right decision for this position. I know you are very busy and I appreciate the time you took during the day and the evenings to help me through making my decision. I couldn't be happier with the service through ERS and I have recommended you to other people I know looking for work in the Purchasing field.

You've been a great help for me and I couldn't be more satisfied with your service.
Jennifer D.
Tim has been very helpful with my career exploration in the supply chain field and provided me with a lot of valuable insight to advance my career. Tim is very professional, helpful and a very pleasant person to get along with. It is an absolute blessing to be associated with him, I enjoy it.
C.G., Raluca
Dear Tim, I don't know how to express heartfelt appreciation for the care shown me through mail exchanges within the last few days. Thanks a million for the bother to remind me on two occasions to resend my resume when it was truncated during transmission. It is rare these days!

And also, to correct a mistake on my resume shows the loving character trait you are endowed with. I have made corrections and resubmit as attached. God bless you.
Alfred
Things are great here, I am thoroughly enjoying my position. I have 2 wonderful people that work with me and my boss is fabulous. They gave me my 30 day review a couple of weeks ago and told me that they are very pleased with my performance. They said I was everything they had wantedÖ and more. So I believe that this is very positive.

Thank you again for this wonderful opportunity. I am so happy it is unreal. If you want to talk live you can call me. Hope to hear from you soon.
N. B., Purchasing Manager
Tim, I just want to drop you a line to thank you again for your help in my career search, it was a great opportunity that I found through you. It has been a month since the move to my new firm and I can see myself with a great future, in such a strong organization. The long process since the beginning was well worth the wait.

You really have focus, commitment and excellent tips for your clients; which in my case, helped me a great deal. If I have to go through the same process I will definitely go through you again. Once again many thanks for your help and professionalism.
Y.Z., Compliance Manager Quebec & Atlantic
Major Consumer Product organization
First I would like to thank you personally for all the help that you have given me during my recent employment search. Your organization is an absolutely top notch, first class, truly amazing recruiting professional. I can not tell you how nice it is to deal with such a professional, caring, warm individual such as your self. As you well know I had other recruiters looking for me but none of them hold a candle to Tim Moore.

Once again, thank you for providing me with a wonderful opportunity. I would recommend you to anyone that asks and tell them not to waste their time with others. Please don't be a stranger and have a wonderful summer.
Neila B.
Tim, thank you again very much for your constant support and advice. It has been a real pleasure to work with you, as you provided not only an excellent knowledge of both the supply chain and recruitment fields; but also an ability to grasp a deep understanding of both my personal needs and career aspirations...even though I didn't fully express them. When assisting with my employment offer, you showed a real ability to get to the essence of issues and anticipate reactions, guiding the negotiations to a successful conclusion to benefit both sides. Definitely a paramount asset.
Raluca R.
Hi Tim. I was just reading the most recent article about you and your firm in the In Review section of the Ontario Institute of the Purchasing Management Association of Canada's magazine. I will send a letter outlining my recent experience with your firm and my new position at The State Group. I have been appointed Director of Purchasing - which gives me a more high profile exposure for me and I'm now a member of the Senior Management Team.
David V.
I am writing this letter to say thank you very much for the part that you have played in the latest development of my career. I recently accepted an exciting position with the provincial government directly because of the services provided by your firm.

You made it very simply not only to find out that this position was available, but also to get my resume to the people making the hiring decision. In two weeks I had four interview requests and two job offers (both on the same day!) In all cases I was very impressed with the professionalism of the interviewers and the prominence of the employers.
Catherine D.
I had the pleasure of working with Tim Moore in the spring of 2008 when he placed me in a senior position with a large EPCM company where I am still working. I found Tim to be very professional in all of his dealings, had an expansive knowledge of the supply chain market, and maintained a high level of integrity. I would certainly recommend Tim to anyone either looking for a supply chain position or a company seeking a recruiter versed in sourcing and recruiting qualified supply chain candidates.
Paul Woodrow
I would like to say thank you for your assistance in finding a suitable Senior Strategic Purchasing position for me. As you are aware, I was brought into Molson Canada on a contract for 6-9 months and was hired on a full time basis within a month.

During my search for a new full time position, I was contacted by a number of executive recruitment firms who had little or no knowledge of purchasing and materials management. It has been a pleasure working with you as you have significant knowledge and experience about the profession and the roles we play in our respective organizations.

Your professionalism, knowledge, timely feedback and vast client base has made your firm stand out from all other Executive Recruitment service organizations.
Malcolm H.
It is with sincere gratitude that I write the ERS Team to thank them for their support and guidance in my recent job search. Job-hunting and the interview process can be an intimidating experience for even the most confident Purchasing Professional. By having a team of dedicated individuals, available, to support and counsel PMAC members during their search for the right career position, further enhances the quality of the membership and the profession.

Due to ERS, I am pleased to say that I have recently accepted the position of Senior Buyer with one of your clients. Similarly, over 12 years ago, ERS helped another member of my family in achieving a strong career position with a leading Canadian corporation. This type of dedication to purchasing excellence and the strong guidance in assisting PMAC members to find quality career building positions is an asset to all members.
Leanne K., Senior Buyer
It gives me great pleasure to write this letter and to let you know that I accepted the position of Director, Purchasing and Logistics. My goal was to manage the materials element of a Canadian based growth-oriented manufacturing company. My objective was also to work for a company with global roots.

Thanks to strong support from you, I found the right company. Particularly Tim, this letter is to say THANKS for your personal follow up and timely feedback after my initial contact, and during the interview stages with them.

This support is important because it helps to highlight whether candidates like myself are on track or not. And so, it is with personal gratitude Tim, I heartily thank you and your staff for the solid support given in helping me find my dream job. Again, thank you, and best wishes for continued successes.
Carl J.
I would like to congratulate Neil Bishop, Coordinator of the Purchasing program, for pulling together a wonderful career networking evening and seminar this past Tuesday evening for the students in the Purchasing and Supply Chain Management program.

Many thanks to the Ontario Institute Ė Purchasing Management Association of Canada for their sponsorship of the evening and to Tim Moore, of Tim Moore Associates, the guest speaker who did a fabulous job presenting solid and insightful career advice for the students and PMAC members involved. We also greatly appreciate the support of the Ontario Institute in continuing to offer student memberships and events.

A wonderful evening. If you would like to learn more, please take a few moments to speak with Neil.

Mary Pierce, Chair, Lawrence Kinlin School of Business
Fanshawe College
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for what you have done for me in securing employment. It has been a refreshing and pleasant experience dealing with Tim Moore and Associates and particularly with you Tim.

I felt, in strong contrast to other agencies I have dealt with, that I was being handled in a professional and still personal manner, from start to finish. I really felt that I had someone in my corner who help me prepare for interviews, from the well thought out and informative "TIPS" booklet for Supply professionals provided, to the strategies and personal advice offered.

This opportunity of working with Tim Moore and Associates has been an experience that I will not forget. I would clearly recommend you to any Purchasing Professional I know in search of a new career and if I ever require a Placement Agency in the future, I would not hesitate to put my self in your hands again. My family and I wish to thank you very much Tim.
