Fuel Talent provided much-needed recruiting support for several hard-to-fill roles at our fast-growing startup. From the first conversation, it never felt like we were working with an outside firm—it felt like we were working with a new teammate. Their strong understanding of our company values allowed them to present incredible candidates who not only met the job requirements but were also perfect fits for our culture.

I recommend Mindy to anyone. She's a terrific listener and was able to quickly nail down not only the skills we were looking for in a candidate, but also the cultural fit. She did a great job vetting candidates and explaining her thoughts on strengths and areas I should probe. She was a pleasure to work with—very high standards, great communicator, and invested in ensuring we were happy with our hire.
— Director of Partner Experience and Engagement, Seattle, WA
About a year ago we were struggling to find strong candidates for our sales and engineering roles in Seattle. The agencies we had partnered with were not able to provide the quality candidates we look for and need. When we met Shauna, we knew immediately that we wanted to work with her team. Since starting our partnership, they have provided a high quality of service, are available when you need them, and always submit top notch candidates.

The experience and the vision I had before working with your team was exactly what I’d hoped for. I’ll absolutely use and recommend Fuel Talent to anyone. Continuous Improvement is in your DNA.
— Recruiting Manager, Technology & Advisory Services, Seattle, WA



I loved my entire experience working with Fuel Talent. Not only did the recruiter proactively seek out jobs that catered to my specific skills and interests, she helped thoroughly prep me for interviews with companies—from providing resume tips for each specific role, to even showing me how some skills I have that I didn’t think were applicable to the job I wanted were actually very much transferable skills. Within three months I was hired full time at my company and three months later I got a promotion. This is all thanks to Fuel Talent for finding the job opening for me and prepping me on what to expect in the interview process (everything from specific questions to dress code). My company continues to use Fuel Talent when we are in need of contract positions. All in all, it was a pleasure to work with Fuel Talent and I still get nice messages from my recruiter asking how things are going!
— Customer Service Representative, Bellevue, WA
Working with Fuel Talent and Shauna Conlon was a pleasure. Searching for a new job is always a stressful experience, but Fuel was very attentive and responsive to my questions and concerns. I was given guidance and advice before and after every interview, about each interviewer and even each thank you note. I also feel as though Fuel accurately matched both the skill set I possessed with the company’s needs and was able to read into the corporate culture needs the company and myself to ensure success in the hiring process. Should my career take another path in the distant future, I will definitely be reaching out to Fuel.

My experience with Fuel was outstanding. The recruiter I worked with was professional, helpful, timely, and straight forward with me throughout the entire process. She offered me advice on how to better present my resume, helped me prepare for the interview so I put my absolute best foot forward, and represented my best interests during negotiations. She was always available to answer questions, quick to provide encouragement, frequently checking in to ensure I was happy with how things were going and was so focused on me that I always felt as if I was her only client (and I know that certainly wasn’t the case!). I’ll be forever grateful for the time Fuel invested in making sure I found the perfect job to suit my goals. Thanks, Fuel!

Fuel Talent was an incredible resource during my job search. I was impressed by the breadth of companies they work with—both large, established organizations and very young start-ups—as well as their support during the entire job-seeking process. I would unquestionably recommend them to anyone looking for a job in the Seattle area.
— Customer Relationship Marketing Manager, Apparel & Fashion Company, Seattle, WA
Fuel Talent did an amazing job in preparing me for interviews and helped me through the acceptance process. They followed up with me after my first weeks and months on the job and were a great resource when I needed it. I cannot say enough nice things about them.

Shauna S. and Shauna are both wonderful to work with. They’re extremely professional and take the time to really get to know the candidates and what they’re looking for, as well as understanding their skill set and personality. I never felt pressured or unprepared when working with them. They helped me with my resume and also with interview questions and skills. Both jobs I’ve landed in with their help, and especially my current role, have been great fits.
— Executive Assistant, Real Estate Company, Seattle, WA
Fuel Talent approached me via Indeed. I was contacted with a video conference call. That alone had me sold. It wasn’t just a voice on the other line! Within a day or two of talking with my recruiter, I was in an interview. The recruiter followed up immediately after the interview to have a debrief and encourage me, asking what went well and what didn’t. She then reached out to the company and within hours had me scheduled for a second interview. I decided against the first job, and within days, had another interview and was hired within two days. The immediate contact and follow up made me feel like I wasn’t alone in the process. The materials and tools provided to prepare for an interview are invaluable. They have made me successful in many other areas at work! I highly recommend Fuel Talent!!

I loved working with Jessica, I will work with her again in the future and am recommending her to my colleagues. I wish I was able to accept the offer to make this a win-win, but hopefully next time.
— Senior Software Developer, Internet Real Estate Company, Seattle, WA
Fuel Talent found an outstanding opportunity for me. After three and a half years, I can still credit them with finding a role I wouldn’t have otherwise have found. Shauna and Mindy are a great team—would recommend working with them to anyone who is ambitious and looking to help build a successful, new company.
— Senior Product Manager
As a professional with years of experience in the technology business, it was frustrating to migrate to WA and not even be able to land an interview. Fuel talent gave me full support, they landed me an interview and I landed the job. Absolutely amazing work!
