Testimonials from On Balance Search Clients About Working With Shari Davidson . . .
Kenneth J. Renov
Shari was like no other recruiter I ever worked with. Rather than just match me with any firm that was looking to fill a position, Shari got to know me and teased out who I was and what I was really looking for. Though there were several firms looking for candidates in my practice area, she knew the cultures and inner-workings of each firm and only guided me towards firms where I would be happy in the long term, not just firms where she could get me hired and make a commission. She eventually matched me with a great firm that was not just objectively great, but a great fit for my personality and life and career goals. And she did not simply arrange an interview. After securing an interview for me, she went into career-coach-mode where she spent time providing invaluable advice on the do’s and don’ts of interviewing and negotiating compensation and benefits. With Shari’s help I received a fantastic offer. I could not be happier with her work and commitment. I recommend her and her services in the strongest sense.

I have worked with Shari as a candidate seeking a new opportunity. She takes the time to get to know a person in order to be able to place you in the best position possible. I, admittedly, have never been a fan of using a recruiter but recommend her highly.
Suzanne LevyI highly recommend Shari Davidson if you are an attorney looking for a new position. Shari is the best recruiter that I have had the opportunity to work with.

Shari is WONDERFUL!! She helped me prepare for an interview with a thorough discussion of what to expect, how to answer questions (including the dreaded, tell me about yourself) and post-interview behaviors. Because of this preparation, I was very comfortable during the interview and I received an offer because of how well she coached me. Shari was instrumental in getting me the position and even advocated for me during the negotiation process. I will HIGHLY recommend Shari and hope to work with her again in the future.

During my career, I have worked with many recruiters either seeking qualified candidates or new opportunities. I consider Shari to be one of the best recruiters in the NY area. Shari understands the needs of her clients as well as the those of the potential placement. In addition to being diligent in her efforts locating and placing the right person in a position, she is honest and personable.
Shari has the unique ability to seek out, attract and pipeline top talent. Her professionalism resonates in every interaction that she has throughout the recruitment process. She has the unmatched insight to determine the best fit for both the firm and the individual and also takes the time to provide expert guidance and coaching to her candidates. Extremely gifted at bringing out a level of authenticity in candidates, Shari allows the employer to accurately evaluate an individual for who they really are – not just based on their interviewing skills. Beyond job descriptions and credentials on paper, Shari has well-honed instincts and an innate feel for strong pairings between candidates and employers. Her direct, honest style is refreshing and leads to a fluid process that respects the time, energy and integrity of everyone involved.
Shari has great insight and industry intelligence. She advised me on making the transition to a firm and her knowledge was invaluable. On the strength of her input I landed nearly a half dozen interviews and was offered a covenanted spot at the premier law firm in my targeted group. Shari is exceptionally good at career counselling but unfortunately not available to everyone. Thanks for your sound advice Shari.
