Our Mission Statement Says It All
"Recruiting is not about making money, it is about helping people".
We know that as a recruiter, we impact not only your life but the lives of your family. Whether it's finding a job where you can see your children before they go to bed or finding that next jump in your career, our role is that of Coach, Mentor, Career Counselor and Friend. We will write your resume, tell you about the company, prepare you for questions you may be asked on the interview, give you feedback, help fine-tune your interview skills and set-up interviews around your work schedule. We do all that for free!
So Why Patrice & Associates? There are lots of agencies that compete for your attention. We have passed the test of time and have been in business longer than most. A 20-year track record means we have the client companies, we have helped thousands of candidates transition to a better job and we have a great reputation.
But Don't Just Take Our Word for It!
I interviewed with Patrice when she still recruited from the basement of her home. She had 4 recruiters working there and I had to go to her house for an “interview prep” before she would send me to Bob Evans. I showed up right before I was to go to my interview and I will never forget that she made me go in her bathroom and shave before she would let me leave for the interview! That interview changed my life. 10 years later when I returned to Maryland I took Patrice out to dinner. I will never forget what she did for me.

I have been working with your recruiter, Dave Spicher, recently and I would like to let you know he has done an excellent job. I believe he genuinely cares about what he is doing. He is resourceful and diligent. Although, as the events turned out, I received and accepted an outside offer, I have never had, nor heard of, a recruiter working for a client with the determination and effort that Dave put into his job.Going forward, I will remember and recommend Dave for any occasions that might arise for me or any associates I have.

As a former Managing Partner for Outback Steakhouse, I was aware of the outstanding reputation that Patrice & Associates had with regard to not only partnering with some of the top companies in the industry, but also their unique approach to recruiting. It is rare to find an agency these days that really cares about the people they work with.
- Barry Jones, Regional Recruiting Manager, Patrice & Associates
As a District Manager for Arbys overseeing restaurants in 4 states, I was aware of the great reputation of Patrice & Associates. I resigned from Arbys to join P&A as a recruiter and after quick success, was promoted to a Recruiting Manager. When the franchise opportunity became available it was a “no brainer” for me and I became one of the first franchisees at Patrice & Associates. I am presently developing my own team of recruiters and have a strong business plan for future growth.
