I am incredibly thankful to Renee and Marc for helping me find the perfect next step in my career. I had been considering a change, but was not ready to take the leap on any particular position until Renee contacted me with a unique opportunity perfectly catered to what I was looking for. Renee was extremely thorough in providing me with specific details regarding the position and offering me alternatives that might be of interest to explore as well. I felt particularly inclined towards the first opportunity Renee presented to me which was an exclusive role that I would not have known about if it were not for Marc's incredible network connections. Moreover, both Renee and Marc displayed excellent communication throughout the lengthy process and always kept me in the loop on updates. They were helpful in scheduling my interviews, offering me preparation materials in advance of each meeting, and ultimately helping me to negotiate my salary. I am now incredibly happy in my new role which I plan on occupying for several years. I am forever indebted to Marc and Renee for guiding me through this difficult process and for being present and attentive to my needs throughout. I would highly recommend working with them.

Vanessa R. Candidate

Taylor at Search Inc. reached out to me about an open role they were engaged even though I was not actively looking. She professionally convinced me to jump on a call with her and her colleague Marc. Very importantly, they both presented a lot of information about the role and the company but were not salesy or pushy; taking the time to find out what aspects were most important to me. They both worked with me throughout the whole process prepping me for interviews and giving me timely feedback while providing my thoughts to the company including compensation negotiations. I accepted the role and could not be more pleased with their service, process, and professionalism! I strongly recommend the team at Search Inc.

Good morning Renee and Marc,
I want to thank you both for the time, attention, and preparation you gave me these past few weeks in joining my new company. Working with both of you has been the best experience I could have asked for. The communication, dedication, and professionalism to name a few highlights were nothing short of amazing. Any candidate would be lucky to work with both of you in their job search.

I finished my first day and it went great. I had Monday morning jitters but after arriving and meeting with my manager and the rest of the team, it all felt right.

Thank you both again so much for everything. To new beginnings and continued growth for us all!

Kind regards,

Jeanette R.

(Marc) is the guy you go to when you want industry intelligence or trend information. He has razor-sharp instincts on what makes a candidate a good fit with a client. He's a master networker, hard worker, as well as being the kind of friend you want when life gets tough.


The Team at Search Inc. knew exactly where I wanted to be in my career and understood all of my concerns and goals. They secured me an interview within days of meeting and I cannot wait to start my dream role next week! Thanks so much again for your help!

Client President and CEO of a Staffing Firm

I initially met Arline when she provided hard to find recruiters to me in my former role. When I became disenchanted I spoke with Arline and she showed me opportunities that were specifically geared to me interests. Her hand holding and old school style are great assets to any firm. If you are looking for talent look to Arline!

Anthony F. Recently Placed Candidate

I have never been a person that contributes to testimonials. However, in this particular case, I find it incumbent upon myself to voice my sentiments because it is so richly deserved. I was not actively looking for another job opportunity because I was relatively content in my previous position with the exception of a few negative factors such as long hours and work location.

After just one meeting and a few phone calls, Search Inc. identified the perfect opportunity for me simply by taking the time to get to know me and understand my strengths and career goals. I feel that Search Inc. invests considerable time and effort in truly understanding a client’s career goals and their personal strengths and weaknesses in order to identify the most optimum career opportunities. I truly feel that it is the level of professionalism and candidate relationships that Search Inc. develops and maintains that separates Search Inc. from its competitors.

Christina T. Recently Placed Candidate

I witnessed the new company, Search Inc. at its inception over a decade ago. Led by Arline Panitz and her staffing industry experienced team, this professional search firm grew into maturity by providing personalized, strategic, and results-driven searches on behalf of staffing company clients. Search Inc. is a reliable and ethical company and has my unqualified respect.

Howard Kane President, Kane Investment Group, Inc.

I have had the pleasure of working with Marc Richards and Arline Panitz for many years and I have always found them to be extremely professional and knowledgeable about the industry. A tremendous resource to tap into it.

Scott Mitek CEO, MTK Resources Corp

Marc is a great recruiter who connected me to the best job of my life. I am still employed with the same company over 6 years later and am advancing my career all thanks to him.

Candidate VP of Talent Management

Marc Richards is a true professional- he was beyond diligent in helping me with my job search and ultimately me found the perfect position within a phenomenal company!

Robin A

I've known Marc in business for 16 years. He's helped numerous friends and colleagues of mine get jobs and I've recently hired a recruiter through him. He's the guy you go to when you want industry intelligence or trend information. He has razor-sharp instincts on what makes a candidate a good fit with a client. He's a master networker, hard worker, as well as being the kind of friend you want when life gets tough.

Sioux Logan President at RedStream Technology

I feel extremely fortunate to have met Arline Panitz almost two years ago. There are many recruiters who are too sales focused, and will push you to interview for a role if you check the boxes and meet the criteria. Arline is an exception and a wonderful person. She genuinely listens to your goals, offers guidance, and provides a realistic view on the market. I'm so fortunate that Arline reached out to me. She has become my industry mentor and I enjoy networking with her and keeping in touch. I would highly recommend clients, and prospective job seekers to reach out to Arline. You will never be disappointed.

Jana Greenberg Talent Acquisition Partner

Marc is an amazing individual to work with. While many "recruiters/ headhunters" tend to have a bad reputation, Marc certainly breaks the mold. He takes the time to understand his client's needs as well as each candidate's needs and desires to create a perfect match. Today concludes 3 weeks of Marc matching me up with the perfect fit! I would highly recommend Marc to anyone in the market looking for a new opportunity and for any client seeking top talent with the right culture fit.

Bryan D. Account Executive at Staffing Firm

It has been an absolute pleasure to partner with Marc Richards and further my career in the recruitment industry. He took the time to listen, and guide me through the interview process from start to finish. If you want to work with the very best, contact Marc Richards! Thank you, Marc!

Barbara R. Candidate Placed September 2014

Marc placed me a year and a half ago at my current position. Things are great and I am still loving my new company. If I could, I would tell Marc over and over again thank you for changing my life! I am forever grateful! Well I guess I just did!

Kate C. Recently Placed Candidate

I had the privilege to work closely with Marc in my job search and I know that he takes the time to get to know his clients’ as well as candidates’ needs. He has extreme drive and determination that differentiates him from others in the industry. Marc is a great representation of all that is good in the search business and is an exceptional recruiter who makes his clients and candidates top priority. Marc would be an asset to any company that is looking to make a talent acquisition and candidate’s in the job search as well. I would recommend Marc to ANYONE!

Jennifer D. Recently Placed Candidate

I’ve known Arline Panitz for almost ten years. Initially, I was an applicant of hers in search of a new position. Arline introduced me to many new opportunities and in the end, she made the introduction that enabled me and my partner to found Lerner, Cumbo & Company. Since then, she and her colleague Marc Richards have helped us grow by introducing us to exceptional people. Arline and Marc have an enormous amount of “industry intelligence” as well as lots of integrity. The factors have helped them stay in business helping clients in bad times as well as good. I recommend them highly.

Evan Lerner Former Candidate and Now at Lerner, Cumbo & Associates

Search Inc. continues to play a critical role in the development of our company. We have been working with Search Inc. since our inception and they have consistently referred us some of the top talents in the staffing industry. If you are looking to build your organization, I strongly suggest you utilize their services, as they are the most effective and knowledgeable recruiting resource in the staffing industry today.

Client President & CEO of a Major Staffing Firm and Board Member, The National Association of Personnel Services

Marc was thorough and responsive right from the start and after an initial call, he asked me to meet him in his office the following day. We spent over an hour bouncing around companies to see which would be a good fit. I had my first phone interview set up a day later. I would definitely recommend Marc.

Brian M. Former Candidate

Marc is a professional in every sense of the word. He not only has a great knowledge of the Staffing Market but also an genuine desire to coach people to success. Marc’s clear, concise knowledge and attention to detail is second only to his approachability and openness. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Marc and I would highly recommend him to anyone!

John Gallaro Former Candidate

Marc is an awesome resource for recruiters on the market. He reached out to me while I was fully employed and presented me an opportunity with a SaaS start-up called Catchpoint. Catchpoint ended up being the perfect fit and an amazing year which propelled my career.

Marc has a great way of not forcing anything on you, but rather explaining the opportunities he has and listening to what the candidate wants. If those things match he can usually present a few solid opportunities with clients he knows well. I have been in tech recruiting for about 8 years and I highly recommend working with Search Inc if you are hiring recruiters or looking for a new opportunity.
