What They Say


About LBF Recruitment


“I have met many recruiters over the past 14 years – and I have never worked with someone as thorough, thoughtful and smart as Lisa. She isn’t about putting body into seats. She’s about the right fit for the company AND the candidate. She answers her phone calls, discusses any concerns and responds quickly. She’s about building teams. She is a trusted confidante for both client and candidate. I think she should open a school on how to be a real recruiter! I would work with her any day.”

– Vice President, San Francisco, CA


“Lisa is a very talented staffing strategist that I would recommend to any corporation seeking staffing counsel. What is most impressive about Lisa is her ability to maintain an accurate, real-time pulse on national and local/regional business trends across public relations, advertising and marketing industries. Lisa is also highly connected to key players and various industry leaders, stemming from her years of experience on both the agency and corporate sides of the business. Lisa consistently provides highly-targeted candidate pools for candidate searches at all levels.”

“Lisa Frank is an absolute pleasure to work with and helped us find the perfect match for our company.  Lisa is professional, strategic, talented and drives success.  Always going the extra mile, Lisa guided us through the recruiting process with sage advice while patiently answering all our questions.  Lisa’s attention to detail and expertise resulted in several candidates that fit our available position.  We’ve worked with other recruiters who didn’t meet our expectations.  But Lisa exceeded our expectations 10 times over!  While we thought it could be a difficult undertaking, Lisa’s jumped right in, providing creative ideas and counsel to ensure the candidate met our requirements and fit in with our company culture.  I highly recommend Lisa for all your recruiting needs and will definitely tap into her expertise for our next search.”

“Exciting news…the offer has been accepted!!! They have been amazingly generous, so I am very happy. 🙂 Now I have to do the fun, official things like drug and fingerprint testing to confirm a start date. But, onward I go!
ONE MILLION thanks to you for all of your insight, advice, and support! And one million apologies from me for being a complete neurotic nut in this process. You are a patient and kind woman. Truly, I am eternally grateful for all that you have done to support me in this process and get me to this point. Professionally, I know this is just scratching the surface with what is ahead; personally, I love that I have gained a friend in this process.  You know I will continue to sing your praises to my friends and acquaintances, so I hope that they make their way to you. Everyone can benefit from a few hours with you…and needs to.  A million thanks again!”

“I’m a freelance Makeup Artist and Hairstylist, and I recently hired Lisa to help me with my business. Freelance is a non-stop push to get new clients and to nurture current relationships. It can be difficult to stay motivated and to come up with fresh ideas. I am so happy with the work-mode she’s put me in; the positive motivation and drive I now have is definitely attributed to Lisa!

She’s goes above and beyond, so that YOU are the best you can be. I HIGHLY recommend (and have) hiring her for any kind of business venture, especially for small business and entrepreneurs like myself, or anyone looking for a new position. Thanks Lisa!”

– Hillary F., Business Owner

– M.K, Sr. Consultant, Risk & Compliance


“From our first session to our last, Lisa listened with compassion and believed in me. She gave me insight into my personality, renewing my perspective on how I respond to different situations and people. Affirming my skills and qualifications, she was my number one cheerleader throughout my job search. Thanks to Lisa, I know how to respond to the dreaded interview question “Tell me about yourself,” Not only did she offer me guidance on how to advance my career, but she also advised me how to achieve a balanced life.”

– Dena G., Grants and Planning Associate


“Lisa was very professional and gave great insight into each situation, while also being compassionate and understanding of her client’s situation. She was very accessible and even continued communication after our coaching sessions were completed. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a boost in their career path and their lives.”

– Mike J, MSW


“I was lucky enough to find Lisa through a mutual friend and how happy am I that we were able to connect. She is one of the most talented and honest people I have ever met. A master in the industry, Lisa is extremely motivating, dedicating, and shows extraordinary leadership skills. She is extremely personable and truly cares about the nature of her clients. She has transformed my way of thinking and has motivated me to be the best person I can be. I would recommend Lisa’s services to anyone I know and has been a true pleasure to work with.”

– Sales & Marketing Manager, Chicago, IL


“Most of us don’t usually consider all the possibilities that careers can bring to our respective lives, i.e. that which we should be doing in a way that fully-maximizes and addresses our skills, interests and passions.

Lisa will listen and then challenge you to explore your career/life options. She will also advise on which choices you need to make. Herein is where you will learn more about how to achieve better results in your life (whatever those results may uniquely be for you yourself). She will provide candid, creative and highly-credible counsel to improve work/life balance. Professional advancement or changes may be the focus when you meet with Lisa. But the end result will always be a clear road map identifying and leading to more positive opportunities, many of which you never previously-thought were even possible!

Lisa’s expertise in marketing, sales and PR fields was a huge plus for me. So too was her direct, but also personable and supporting counsel. After meeting with Lisa, I consider her more of a good friend than an expert career counseling and search placement professional (which she also happens to be). That’s why I strongly recommend Lisa for anyone looking to make a change in their lives, both personally and professionally.”

– Pete S., MBA & Director Integrated Marketing


“Lisa is one of the most intelligent, kindhearted, and generous people I know. When I moved to Chicago, Lisa displayed empathy by listening to my aspirations and immediately diving in to help me. Her guidance, insight, and support not only eased my transition into this new city, but also helped me develop and gain valuable life skills. Lisa cares and strives to make a positive impact in people. She is an amazing individual that identifies a person’s needs and wants, and educates you on how to achieve them. Lisa is trusting, personable, and wise; she is my mentor, my friend, and my life coach.”

– Ellie J. Business Continuity Coordinator, Chicago, IL


“Lisa is a knowledgeable, supportive professional who is a pleasure to work with. She goes above and beyond to ensure that your needs are not only met, but exceeded. Lisa is helping me perfect my resume and has provided value advice about my career. I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who is looking for exceptional career advice and a new, attention-grabbing resume. Thank you, Lisa!”

– Linda C., Director of Marketing

Lisa is a truly special human being, and has an incredible ability to look through a story and piece away the superfluous information to get to the core/root of the problem. With amazing perspective and insight about self and relationships, Lisa is an amazing guide, and I am grateful to have had the chance to meet her and work with her 2 thumbs up, 5 stars, I give Lisa the highest recommendation to anyone looking to get clarity and a plan of action for dealing with a crisis, a crossroads, or just general guidance on how to improve yourself and your life.”

– Digital Marketing Strategist, Chicago, IL

– Lyndsie F.

“Hi Lisa- Was thinking of you this morning and wanted to send you a very delayed thank you note for all you did to help me with my career move. It’s been almost exactly a year now and I’m loving the new challenge and really thriving in the new environment. I’ve learned and grown so much…and I’m fulfilling my goal of running a team!

Yesterday a friend called me who is struggling with the same decision I did and I heard her start to talk herself out of making a move. I tried to channel my inner Lisa Frank and remind her to re-focus on the goals she had for herself and not the fear of change. Anyway, it reminded me of what an important role you played in helping me finally make that leap.”
