by Ellen McCurdy, Braintree Patch

Gary Gekow began doing career workshops almost by accident. A senior employment specialist for over 23 years, Gekow agreed to what he thought would be a small one-time workshop at the Stoughton Public Library.

The place was packed and he got "phenomenal feedback," Gekow said. Recognizing the need and the interest, he now has a full repertoire of workshops, on topics such as resumes and cover letters, interviewing, online job search, changing careers and salary negotiation.

I have regularly used Gary’s recruiting services for ten years, 1998–2008, and for all those hiring efforts I can honestly state Gary never wasted my time. His approach was always thoughtful, thorough, and per my specifications, and his screening of candidates before deciding which resumes to send me virtually guaranteed that his referrals warranted very serious consideration. Gary’s professionalism, humanity, and warm personality made our work interactions enjoyable and productive, and are why we are still friends today.  It is with pleasure and complete confidence that I recommend Gary to both job seekers and hiring managers.

I relocated to Boston from upstate New York and was quickly referred to Gary. Within  one week he met with me, created my resume, thoroughly prepared me for an interview and even marketed my background to one of his clients who hired me right after the very first meeting.

I have worked with Gary on three occasions since 2001. Each time, he has coached me through the interview process and introduced me to my future employers. Most importantly, he has always kept my best interests in mind. I know that he will never present an opportunity unless it is a good fit. Gary is genuine, sincere and committed to his craft.  I would enthusiastically refer his employment services to anyone seeking a new opportunity. You will be well served.
