What employers are saying about the PGA of America’s CareerLinks service:
"It’s hard to find enough superlatives when reflecting upon the quality of work done by The PGA of America. From the beginning to the end of the CareerLinks process, The PGA of America's responsiveness, courtesy, and professionalism were of the highest order. Many thanks to Wayne Kauffman, PGA Employment Services Consultant, and to all the folks at the PGA. "
John Schultz, Selection Committee Chair, Metropolis Country Club
"CareerLinks provided the "road map" for our hiring process . . . it saved us many hours of work, took the trial and error out of our efforts, and enabled us to be more professional in our search. I do not know where we would have started and how our search would have been nearly as effective without CareerLinks and the help from our PGA Employment Services Consultant Dick Bradow. Dick helped us build the foundation for our hiring process and was an excellent resource for us. "
Steve Ward, Search Committee Chair, Belle Meade Country Club
"We were thrilled to discover the PGA had the CareerLinks program. For us the process was perfect and the result beyond our expectations. PGA Employment Consultant Jeff Beaudry was a lifesaver! He was helpful, knowledgeable, proactive but not pushy, and a pleasure to work with. Thank you, PGA. "
Leanna Taylor, HR Officer, Desert Canyon Golf Course
“Exmoor Country Club had an extremely favorable experience utilizing the PGA Career Links service to hire our new Head Golf Professional. Working closely with PGA Employment Consultant Tim Marks, we tailored our position specification and target candidate group with precision which produced a significant pool of qualified candidates. I was impressed with how comprehensive the PGA’s database is along with the extra tools the program provides. It made my job so much easier guiding the search committee in the process. I fully endorse PGA Career Links and would recommend it to any GM/COO in search of a Head Golf Professional. ”
Alan Slatin, General Manager, Exmoor Country Club
“When Houston Oaks Country Club was in need of a new Head Golf Professional at the end of 2011, we turned to PGA CareerLinks. Bill Keys was extremely helpful in developing a plan for this critical search. We received 43 applicants and went through a very arduous process of screening and interviewing all of the candidates. We ultimately hired Darren Howard, a long time PGA Professional from Johnson City, TN. One year later we are still thrilled with our choice and Darren is doing an outstanding job. We are grateful for the assistance provided by PGA Employment Services and particularly Bill Keys. ”
Herb Lipsman, Chief Operating Officer, Houston Oaks Country Club
"I want to thank Mike McCollum and the PGA for your help throughout this process. We were on a relatively short timeline and we were able to hit every deadline by using Career Linksâ€¦the quality of the resumes was extremely high. We had four incredible finalists and probably the most difficult task was personally notifying the three who did not make it, but the process workedâ€¦and worked well for us."
