Leslie joined Betts Recruiting in May 2014. Prior to Betts, Leslie worked at Engage PR, Bayside Solutions, and Kinetic Marketing. She attended the California State University of Chico where she was a member of Alpha Phi and received a B.A. in Organizational Communications. She was an Order of Omega Honor Society Member and a member of CSUC's Panhellenic Association. Originally from Walnut Creek, CA, Leslie enjoys traveling, adventure, and concerts outside of work.
As a guy from NJ seeking options in the Bay Area, I contacted Betts as a hail Mary for new opportunities. I had a couple years of sales experience under my belt and was hoping to make the transition into the world of Tech. I was put in touch with a recruiter by the name of Leslie Schmidt.
Leslie quickly made me feel extremely comfortable with the process. Starting off by taking the time to truly understand what my career goals are, she took the information I gave and RAN with it! Suddenly, I have a full time job of organizing and preparing for Job Interviews.
With each interview Leslie sent me an elaborate email which entailed more information related on the company I was interviewing for than I could ever find on my own.
Within 2 months I was able to go through the entire process, move out to San Francisco, and am happily able to write this review from my work desk at my dream job.
I am extremely grateful for all the work Leslie put in to making this all possible. I very much felt like she genuinely was invested into helping me, and never felt like she put any weight on her own commissions and personal incentives. She understood that this is not just a deal, but my life in the balance, and I am infinitely grateful for what she did.Lu T., Yelp Review
Leslie and I have known each other for several years and I can't recommend her more highly. She has an old fashioned mastery of relationships while understanding how to move business objectives forward.
I've known Leslie on both the client and candidate sides and therefore have a well-rounded perspective on her. She is aligned with her client's success whether that client is a paying customer or a candidate looking to be placed. Some recruiters are just trying to earn fees, Leslie is trying to earn great outcomes, relationships and mutually-beneficial success.
Simply put, I always look forward to working with Leslie!Wynne B., LinkedIn Review
Leslie was super attentive to my preferences in an ideal job and had multiple great recommendations to me very quickly. She pushed hard on my behalf, aided in my prep, and was able to help me land the exact type of role I was searching for! I would highly recommend working with Leslie, she's a true professional.Brooks A., LinkedIn Review
