  • “I had a two-fold challenge when I first spoke with Simone Green: 1) I was moving back to Chicago, and 2) we were in a recession. Simone listened to my concerns and gave me straight answers. She understood the type of firm I was looking to join and the career I wanted to build. Using her connections, Simone matched me with a firm and a job that exceeded my expectations.”
