Testimonials

We’ve worked with Core Staffing to help us manage our company’s very fast growth over the past year. They have helped us source great, diverse candidates and are a pleasure to work with. In many cases, they are able to present us with a slate of candidates within 24 hours! I view them as a valuable partner for future hires.
Janet Cowell
CEO, Girls Who Invest
The team at Core asked the right questions and really learned about the needs of my small, nonprofit organization, and the candidates they matched us with have been great fits. Everyone I have interacted with has been responsive and willing to help. Core has saved us time and relieved some of the stress that comes with hiring. I highly recommend working with them!
Andrea Austin
Deputy Director, Aubin Pictures
I was previously a post-bac, pre-med student with my eyes set on med school. Needless to say, I had a great deal of anxiety about money to cover my expenses living in NYC. I began cold calling staffing agencies to see what kinds of jobs I could do to make ends meet, and I was fortunate enough to connect with Core Staffing and its Founder/CEO, Mitch Heine. Almost immediately, Mitch and his team made me feel like part of the family, as they were actively interested in my well-being and growth while still being sensitive to my intense school schedule. They were able to land me several administrative assistant roles that not only helped me financially, but also allowed me to build a valuable professional skill set. Fast forward to today, I’m now a successful physician and educator in Philadelphia, and I find myself still making use of many of the administrative skills I learned in the jobs that Core found for me. The folks at Core genuinely care about their candidates, which made a world of difference for me!
