"My experience with Opus has been one of complete success. Moira contacted me on a position and was fantastic in guiding me through the process very quickly. I was surprised at the speed of the interview process and how quickly an offer was made. I have also had the pleasure of being a client and working with Gina. I filled a position very quickly with a highly motivated and competent individual that has made a real difference in our organization. Opus is very good at targeting just the right candidates for the position. I look forward to continuing to work with Opus!!!"
