Thanks again for all your efforts, and the consultations/recommendations you provided me.  I would definitely recommend you to others seeking a process equipment/industrial sales position.


Definitely Recommended for Sales Positions

I receive solicitations from recruiters on an almost daily basis.  Your approach is by far the most professional and compelling that I have ever encountered.  You explained in a no-nonsense, articulate way exactly why you contacted me and wasted no time in getting to the point.  Your background in the process industries is impressive. I look forward to working with you both personally and to help us with critical staffing needs.


Most Professional and Compelling

DFT has used K Jaeger and Associates for almost 30 years now.  Their understanding of our company and our culture has allowed us to find not only highly qualified candidates, but candidates that fit well into our company on both the personal and professional levels.


Delivers Highly Qualified Candidates That Fit Well.

I have known Karl Schoellkopf for almost twenty five years, and have been placed with companies by him on two occasions. I have always known Karl to be very forthcoming with up-to-date information on where the potential employer is in the decision-making process. Furthermore, he is extremely helpful in making sure that each candidate is very well prepared for the interview, giving timely advice to help the candidate show his best credentials to the prospective employer. Karl is very straight forward and will tell you the truth, even if it is not what you were hoping to hear. He believes in giving you the facts so that you can be better prepared for the next interview as well, which is always helpful. I have recommended many people to Karl, and he has helped them as well. He is a consummate professional, and a pleasure to work with.



A Consummate Professional and a Pleasure to Work With.
