Success Stories

The Snapshot is amazing!  Even before talking with a candidate you know if they are a job hopper, the real reasons they left jobs, and most important of all – you see how bosses would rate them.

Nothing has been more important for my career success. Really - at least half my career success is attributable to Topgrading methods and the counsel of Topgrading Professionals.
