Vivian Ying

Technology Director at Houlihan Lokey

I can’t thank Meryl enough for all of her help. I had been on the job hunt for a couple of weeks, I had worked with several other recruiters and I had not been able to find the right place. Meryl started working with me and in less than a week I had an interview scheduled and found a great place to work at. Given that I am a new grad she made this experience a lot easier for me. Thank you so much Meryl for being so efficient and so professional. It was a pleasure working with you.

New Grad, PT

I am very thankful for the help I received from Meryl at Meryl Leigh & Associates! Meryl was very professional, helpful and extremely efficient getting back to me at all times. She made the process of being a new grad looking for a Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA) job very easy. Her commitment to do the best in every aspect definitely showed and with her help I found the perfect job! I have recommended many friends and colleagues who are looking for employment to go and contact her. Thank you again for a wonderful, stress-free opportunity and experience!

Jaime Wilt

New Grad PTA

Meryl was tremendous in helping me through the hiring process at my new employer. She was a great liaison, helping me to setup interviews, giving insight into the position and the company and what they were looking for and following through from her first phone call with me until the end when I had an offer letter in hand. I would recommend her services as a recruiter to anyone seeking a change of employment. I had not been actively seeking a new employer when I was first contacted by Meryl, but she helped me to see the great opportunity this new position could be for me and my career. Once I decided to pursue it, she was a great help every step of the way.

I am pleased to write this letter in support of Meryl Leigh and Associates. TheraGen is the therapy division of Generations Healthcare, a company that owns and operates skilled nursing facilities in California. We provide therapy services in 14 of our facilities, and are always seeking competent, dedicated therapists to care for our patients.

Without exception, Meryl Leigh has provided us with top tier candidates. They pre-screen each candidate to get a “feel” for the person, determining whether the individual would be a good fit for our needs. They provide a detailed resume of relevant experience and check to ensure that the applicant is licensed in the State of California. When we receive a referral from Meryl Leigh and Associates, we are confident that all of the preliminary screening has been done thoroughly. A great deal of attention is always paid to detail, and the level of professionalism is exceptional.

Their follow up is also excellent. Once a candidate is placed, they are in contact with us to see how things are going.

I am very pleased to give Meryl Leigh and Associates my highest recommendation.

COTA: Candidate

I am a Director of Rehabilitation in a Skilled Nursing Facility setting which opened 3 years ago.

I have found this company to be absolutely exemplary in fulfilling my needs as a Director.

The follow through after the interview by Meryl Leigh and Associates makes my job as a Director so much easier, as they ensure that the candidate is constantly updated of the status.
