Recommendations @ Verizon Enterprise Solutions

Gopi has been a member of the Verizon APAC Talent Acquisition team for nearly 3 years, and having known him for all of this time and managed him directly for some of it I am very happy to recommend his contribution. He is a very committed and hard working recruiter, who has excellent market knowledge, great hands-on recruiting and sourcing skills, and on top of this a high level of personal integrity. Gopi is also one of the first people to raise his hand to help other members of the team when required, and is always ready and willing to go the extra mile if it will help the team effort.

I have enjoyed all my interactions with Gopi, and look forward to continuing to work with him.

Gopi brings a rare level of passion and drive to his work, whether in-the-trench sourcing activity or improving the greater productivity of the team through process improvement work. He has come through on a number of important projects that delivered real value to our South Asia business and was a pleasure to manage because of his zeal for his work and positive demeanor. Gopi knows our business in and out from the front office sales group to the nuts-and-bolts of our operations. If he reaches out to you to discuss an opportunity, you can be sure that it is worth your time to meet with him.

Gopi has an insatiable appetite for Talent Acquisition and boundless energy to find the right candidate. He even started to learn some Japanese in order to find Japanese speakers for customer service roles in Singapore - a great example of going above and beyond. Gopi is certainly not the standard 'post and pray' recruiter. He continuously strives to understand latest proactive headhunting techniques and continues to have solid success with us at Verizon.
