  • ​Marcus from Cobalt Recruitment is the best recruitment consultant I've ever met. He's pro-active, friendly and very professional. During my application up to contract signing, he made sure that everything ran smoothly and I will get what I really deserve from the company. I can also say that he's really concerned about his recruits that he made time to check on me during my first week at work. I highly recommend him.​

  • ​I have partnered with Wei Yolk for almost 3 years. While I’m rather demanding with the people I partner with, I really enjoy my work relationship with her. Wei Yolk is not the typical cold caller or CV spammer who just wants to hit her numbers. She was patient with us on the requirements a.k.a. wish list on the candidates. She is responsive to our requests and do her best to match LaSalle’s needs and the candidate profiles. Instead of just pushing the candidates’ salary without much thoughts, she has very good in client and candidate management/relationship which distinguishes her from other recruiters I have worked with. Thank you Wei Yolk for all your help.​
