Testimonials

“Ben was the first recruiter I ever worked with and got me my first job at MCI back in 1996. He’s remained a valued resources since then, and I’m happy to recommend him to both job seekers and HR departments.”

-Eric McErlain, Senior Manager, Web Communications at Nuclear Energy Institute

 “If it’s six degrees of separation with Kevin Bacon, and 4.74 with Facebook, when it comes to Ben Long and the field of communications, the number is even smaller. Having been placed by Ben in a key role for me early in my career, I’ve been astounded over the course of time and progressive career moves how keenly and clearly he has kept track of my career and countless others. I’ve run into few PR professionals who don’t know who he is. When it comes to PR talent, I’m confident Ben and Travaille have an industry leading line of site to who’s who.”

-Kerry Deesberg, Global Director Marcom, Analyst and Public Relations WatchGuard Technologies
