Carly-Anne is in a league of her own as a recruiter. I've worked with recruiters before but I've never had a such a positive experience doing so as I did with Carly-Anne.
Last year, she successfully helped place me into the perfect role (for me). She was very personable and really gets to the core of who the candidate is and what he/she is looking for. She was able to identify an opportunity where my personality/work habits would be a fit with the recruiting boss.
She didn't try to just throw my CV at any role - she really cared about getting the right people into the right role, and I appreciated that. A year later, I can say she was absolutely right and I've never been happier. Thank you Carly-Anne - you are like the job whisperer!
I provide this recommendation for Carly-Anne without actually being asked to provide one. I was introduced to Carly-Anne through a mutual colleague and she stepped in at the very last minute last year to conduct mock interviews in the Career Planning and Development class I teach at George Brown College (a part-time endeavour of mine). She agreed to do so again this term and I was delighted to have her back in the classroom. She is knowledgeable about recruiting (as would be expected) but, more than that, gave of her time and expertise and talent to the students -- providing valuable insight and guidance. They loved her! Her enthusiasm and passion for what she does is evident in all she does and says. Thanks Carly-Anne....I'll be reaching out again next term!
Twice now I've had the chance connect with Carly-Anne Fairlie.
In both instances I've been shocked by how deep her knowledge and care for their clients goals runs.
She's integral to a team that understands not only the landscape into which they hire, but what it takes to drive ROI in those spaces.
Having utilized recruitment services both as an agency partner and as a candidate I can truly say their is not team in this city that can demonstrate the same kind of value for it's business clients.
I'd highly recommend her services to anyone looking to find the best possible hires in the creative space.

Carly-Anne is exceptional at finding a perfect fit for employees and employers. She is a pleasure to work with and goes above and beyond to ensure her clients are confidant and successful.
Carly-Anne generously gave her time and expertise as a guest speaker to the Public Relations students at Centennial College as part of their Professional Practice course. Her frank, expert advice was spot on and well-received by the students. They learned a ton. Many have now connected with Carly-Anne professionally. It's so nice to have skilled experts give back to their profession. In fact, she was "paying it forward"!
I worked for Carly-Anne at her agency as an intern in 2009/2010. Carly was a great leader and gave me an excellent introduction to the world of blogging, public relations and entertainment.
Carly is a highly organized and dedicated individual. She was a pleasure to work for and was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about job.

Carly-Anne has always been a treat to work with. We've taken on large projects together and I have enjoyed every aspect of working with her. At Hybrid we ran a weekly Saturday Rock Club night in downtown Toronto, amongst other events and always worked as seemless team.
