My experience with Laura Stanley at ZSA was fantastic! I felt that she was there for me on every step of my job search! Best experience ever with a recruitment agency.
I was contacted by Laura after updating my LinkedIn profile. I was only interested in a part-time position in my area of expertise and Laura contacted me with the perfect position. Laura knew that I was being very particular about what type of employment opportunity I was looking for and did not try to place me in any other type of position, which I appreciated. I have used other recruiters in the past, and ZSA was excellent in comparison!

I reached out to ZSA because of their strong relationships with law firms, and their familiarity with a variety of legal work environments. I trusted ZSA to handle the process, as I was working during my job search, which eased my concerns from the beginning. I was impressed at how quickly the ZSA team was able to provide results. I was placed as a Legal Administrative Assistant at a law firm very quickly.

I was hired in a Legal Assistant/Paralegal position. I would rate my experience with ZSA a 10. They made themselves very available for me in terms of questions and were excellent in communicating my wishes and concerns to the employer. They seemed very engaged in ensuring both parties were completely satisfied. I have used other recruiters and I feel like at times they are too slow or not as proactive. ZSA recommended the position to me and within a week I had the interview. I have worked with other recruiters for years that to this day have never been able to secure me a temp or permanent position. I would absolutely use ZSA again and recommend them to friends.

I was hired for a Litigation Legal Assistant Position. I was looking to leave my current position and found the job posting on Indeed. I contacted ZSA regarding the position through e-mail. They were wonderful! After speaking with them on the phone, I left the telephone conversation feeling like they knew exactly what I wanted out of my next position. They understood what types of job opportunities I would be good for and that I would enjoy. Any questions I had, ZSA was able to provide answers with little wait time. Overall I have nothing negative to say about my experience with ZSA. I felt like they were looking out for me and where I would best fit rather than just trying to fill positions with bodies. I’ve used two other recruiting companies before ZSA and I found ZSA to be by far the best. The first company I used they were more concerned about just filling a position rather than finding the best fit and once I turned down an offer they stopped looking for me altogether. The second company I used was good, but they would contact me at my current job which I found to be extremely frustrating. I think ZSA did a wonderful job. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a new role.

ZSA made sure that they had a complete understanding of what I was looking for, took the time to identify my strengths and weaknesses, and made great recommendations on positions available. Even after I successfully landed the position, they there to help me out with anything I needed. They were very patient and provided me with clear and extensive information about the firms I was applying to, the duties of the positions, and the lawyers I would be working with. ZSA is much more professional and involved in the process compared to other recruitment companies I have used. I highly recommend ZSA!
I was placed as a Legal Assistant with the help of my ZSA Consultant. Everyone at ZSA was very helpful and always positive. Even when I felt discouraged at times, they always reassured me and managed to make me feel better and motivated to continue my search. Over the few months I’ve been in contact with ZSA, I’ve learned lots of valuable interview tips and how the hiring process works. I have used other recruiters before, but I found ZSA to be the most helpful in my search because they really understand how to find the perfect fit for you rather than just any job.
I was looking for a Legal Assistant role, and contacted ZSA because of their good reputation in Vancouver. They were amazing every step of the way! They were supportive and very knowledgeable as well as quick to respond to calls or emails. I can’t say enough great things about my experience with ZSA. ZSA is so much better than other recruitment firms!
I was looking for a more senior level position, and felt that ZSA would help connect me with a great firm and ensure a good fit. I had applied for postings I had seen on my own, but I either never got an interview or when I had taken the job, the firm did not feel like a good fit. Working with ZSA was fantastic! They found me a Senior Corporate Clerk position with a reputable firm. They were very attentive, responsive, and listened to my questions and concerns throughout the process. Working with ZSA opened up doors that I may not have been able to access myself. ZSA was also more thorough and truly listened to what I was looking for, compared to other recruiters I have used.

I was placed into a legal administrative assistant position. ZSA was quick to reply to my emails and was always there to answer any questions I had along the way. I really appreciated how quickly they communicated with both my potential employer and I whenever an issue arose. Without ZSA, I know I wouldn’t have been hired as quickly and efficiently as I was. They also provided me with valuable background information on the companies and positions they were hiring. I really liked how they were able to narrow down positions to those that were of interest to me. I will absolutely recommend ZSA to anyone I know who is looking for a career in the legal field.
