For employers, the goal is to help you connect with the best talent available in the market. Once I understand your unique hiring needs, we will work together to craft a recruiting strategy to hone in on the level of talent desired. I can help you find permanent employees or introduce you to industry consultants who are available on a 1099 contracted basis for specific projects.

I’ve kept in contact with Kary over the years, but had never worked with her directly. Finding myself laid-off during this pandemic was incredibly stressful. Kary stepped in to help, and quickly set up an interview for me based on my experience, personality and desired work culture with a company I would probably never have sought out (or known about) on my own because of their location out of state. Thankfully, Kary’s “out-of-the-box” thinking connected me with my new employer in a 100% remote position, something invaluable to me during these times. I’m very excited about my new position and I’m incredibly thankful to Kary for all her hard work. I highly recommend her!!

Kary is and honest, talented and experienced professional, the best partner you can have during your job search! She cares, listens, and immediately understands everyone’s expectations and unique situations. She is always happy to help.

Working with her was invaluable. She provided her knowledge and feedback on how to create a perfect resume, how to use my strengths and overcome my weaknesses, and the most important part, she offered her expertise to help me improve my self-confidence and get exactly what I was looking for, and for that I am immensely grateful.

I recommend Insurance Resourcing to anyone trying to find the perfect job. I couldn’t have found a better fit!

Thank you Kary!

Kary did a wonderful job finding exactly what I was looking for. She accommodated my unique situation living on a remote island. She was a lifesaver to say the least. She got me exactly what I needed. She is a masterful communicator and made sure that I was comfortable and happy throughout the process. I was never left guessing and was given pointers on my resume and a background on the company prior to interviewing. Overall, if I ever had to use her again for a job search I would in a heartbeat!

Kary is good, I mean really good at what she does! Her ability to strategize for a viable solution and then make the plan happen is phenomenal. She has been a key resource for me, whether I’ve needed her recruiting skills to find potential employees or assist with new employment opportunities for my own career path. I highly recommend her to all my fellow insurance/financial professionals should you a need new hire or a new position in the industry because she can make it happen for you. Thank you Kary York

Kary reached out to me, and inquired on my areas of expertise, then suggested multiple positions that could meet my career goals. She arranged multiple interviews quickly, within the week of me sending her my final resume, then followed up extensively with the future employers to ensure I was not forgotten. Not only did she arrange these meetings, she gave me tips on my resume, interview, and presentation. Kary helped me to feel very confident going into each interview, sure that this was exactly the career I was looking towards. I can’t thank her enough for the doors she opened! She knows the industry well and gave me great tips.

Kary was wonderful to work with. We called her with an immediate staffing need and she was able to provide us with multiple applicants within a weeks’ time. Every applicant was highly qualified with great references. Our only challenge became deciding which one to hire! We had tried other avenues to hire insurance professionals (Linkedin, Indeed, etc. ) for several months to no avail. Kary was able to find us exactly what we needed. We will definitely call on Kary when we are in need of additional staffing needs.

Finding a new job can be a daunting task, doubly so when you’re trying to find employment across the country. Despite these challenges, Kary worked with me cross-country and placed me at a new brokerage in the Puget Sound area in less than a month. The biggest downside of working with recruiters is that they sometimes treat you like a product to be moved immediately and try to get you to interview at as many places as possible in the hopes that you’ll land something. Kary knew exactly what type of professional I am and the type of working environment I was looking for. I heartily recommend anyone looking for the next step in their professional path to reach out to Kary.

Thank you so much for your help and advice through this process. I really appreciate you helping me fight for the chance to speak with the company after initially being rejected. I knew this was the perfect role and I’m happy you felt that way too. I’m so excited for this opportunity and am very grateful.

I just wanted to drop a little note to you to THANK YOU for telling me about my new job! You were right. It’s exactly what I needed. Things are going well and I’m so excited about being part of this group of great people. We all seem to share the same vision and determination for the future of the agency, which is great.

Thank you again for putting me on the path to Portland! It’s been a wonderful and positive move!

Thank you so much for putting this together for me. You listened to me when I said I had always wanted to work part time, and presented the idea to the agency and they hired me. I am so thankful.

I truly appreciate your efforts! I hope you stop by the agency the next time you’re in Portland so we can all meet you.

Kary is absolutely amazing! I just can’t say enough good things about her. She helped me get that perfect job I’ve been looking for. She is a true professional and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for work in the insurance industry.
