What Clients Say

“Ascendo has provided recruiting services for multiple positions in my company. They have a very personal and proactive approach to recruiting which has been key to providing us with high caliber candidates. Not only do the candidates meet our technical requirements but also the company culture. I enjoy working with the staff at Ascendo and highly recommend them.”
Wendy, Jameson LLC
“I’m not one to easily give endorsements, but I am happy to in your case! Great team with great leadership. Able to understand hiring requirements, traits and personality from an intuitive standpoint and then source multiple viable candidates. Very organized and expeditious. Highly recommended!”
Paul, Executive VP and Chief Operating Officer at Coolray/Mr. Plumber/BriteBox
“We had just about given up on using recruiters, but Ascendo’s attention to detail and quality people can’t be beat. You can tell that they’re advocating for their candidates without forcing anyone irrelevant on you. Worth every penny.”
Pamela, Mobile App Design and Development Company in NYC
“My experience with Ascendo has been very positive. The group works hard to figure out what is the ‘right’ type of person, both in skills sets and personality, to ensure a good fit when making a placement. I would recommend Ascendo to those looking for a job or for those looking to hire.”
Kimberli, HR Director at Charlotte-based Client
“I have had the great pleasure of working with Ascendo Resources for my staffing needs for at least five years; I know Gustavo Peña for almost ten. From the first time we started doing business, Ascendo Resources and Gustavo Peña have made it a priority to know our company well and understand it’s needs. So, no matter what has been the request, direct reports or temporary support, they have been able to provide the best candidate in a very short period of time. They are there for the entire process and any problem or issue that develop, they will do everything in their power to make it right. It is for these reasons and more that I highly recommend Ascendo Resources as the company for your staffing needs.”
Maggie, Director of Human Resources at Nationally Traded Media Company
“Ascendo placed a Staff Accountant on my team and the interview process was seamless. The candidate is qualified, bright, and has great potential to within our firm.”
Manager, Miami-based CPA Firm
“I have utilized Ascendo Resources to fill several openings that I have had in my Accounting Department. Being a part of a large growing company contains several challenges. Fortunately, they have made one of the most difficult challenges, hiring new employees, a very simple one.

While attempting to fill the first position I worked with several recruiting agencies. Unfortunately, I often times felt they were submitting any resume they could find. However, Ascendo Resources dedicated time to get to know me, my expectations, as well as their candidates. This is what I feels makes them a brilliant staffing agency.”

Alex, Accounting Manager at Miami-based Engineering and Infrastructure Construction Firm
“One of the best ways to serve the needs of a busy company while short on staff resources is to partner with someone (company) who is competent, honest and always willing to share knowledge. This is the experience I consistently have with Ascendo Resources. They are a trusted external business partner that works tirelessly to deliver great results. I consider them an extension of our staff and an invaluable member of the team.”
Carol, VP and Head of HR at Global Financial Institution
“Working with Ascendo has been wonderful! They are very quick to respond and have provided top tier candidates for every position we have had to fill. Ascendo’s professionalism and positive attitude are impressive and I look forward to working with them for all our staffing needs.”
Chris, Executive Vice President at Kovack Advisors, Inc.
