“I recently had the pleasure of working with Marcia Fortnoff at Kearney Boyle.  Marcia took the time to meet with me in person to discuss my background and what I was looking for in my job search.  The service from Marcia and Kearney Boyle was exceptional.  They provided guidance every step of the way and helped me obtain a position with a great firm.  I would highly recommend Marcia and Kearney Boyle!”

“It’s been a pleasure working with Kearney Boyle & Associates! Thanks to them (especially Lila), I was hired by a leading consulting firm in San Francisco on June 2015. I’ve been looking for a job for a while and worked with a lot of employment agents. Not like the other recruiters, Lila has been very helpful from the start, she pays attention to what I want and finally find me a perfectly fit job! Thank you so much, Lila!!”
