Annika Johnson

Hastings Architecture

"From the moment I met with The Hadden Group, I felt comfortable that they would help me find the perfect fit for me. They were encouraging, honest, and extremely helpful. Within one month, I had accepted a position with Hastings Architecture Associates (a current candidate for Nashville Business Journal's 'Best Places to Work 2018') and couldn't imagine myself with any other company. I love my position and my team and I owe it to The Hadden Group for finding the perfect match. I even referred my sister soon after."

Mary Taylor Ray

Document Solutions Inc.

"Moving to Nashville and beginning the job hunt was a scary transition, but The Hadden Group eased all fear and was so welcoming. Within two weeks, I had accepted a job at DSi (voted Inc. 50 Best Workplaces 8 years running). They made sure I was prepared in every way for my interview and gave me the tools I needed to succeed. Their transparency and eagerness to help were so beneficial during the interview process. I could not be happier with my position, team, and work environment. The Hadden group made it possible to work for such a dream company, and I cannot thank them enough for setting me up with my ideal position."

Kent McGinnis

"I would like to thank The Hadden Group for the great representation. They carefully selected one of the best companies on my behalf for that perfect fit. The Hadden Group worked hard and their honesty & professionalism is second to none. It is good to work with the best of the best, and I would highly recommend The Hadden Group to anyone wanting to find that perfect job."

Allie Brashear


"While searching for a job in the Greater Atlanta area, The Hadden Group landed the absolute perfect fit for me. They took my resume and placed me in a position that carried out all of my strengths and experience. It is more than a dream to be working with the best of the best at McALPINE Architecture and Interior design and I have the Hadden Group to thank for my placement."

Bridget Mitchell

Concept Technology Inc.

"Carolyne at The Hadden Group is top notch! Over the years they have placed me with highly respectable companies. They have contacts that are above and beyond the other placement agencies. They are professional, classy, down-to-earth and know how to match up an employer with job candidates impeccably. I can't say enough about The Hadden Group, but thank you, thank you, thank you!!"

Anne Wallis Eubanks


"This was my first time to work with a recruiter and I could not have asked for a better experience. I met with Carolyne and knew right away that she would not stop until she found the right fit for me. The Hadden Group went above and beyond my expectations to place me with an incredible company. I was with the company for about a month before I was approached about a promotion. The Hadden Group placed me with an excellent company. I have the privilege of working with a great team, doing work that I enjoy and care about. I would absolutely recommend The Hadden Group if you are looking to make a career change in the Nashville area!”

Tripp Allen

Meiko USA, Inc.

"Back in 2012, Chuck Wilson hired me on at MEIKO thanks to The Hadden Group’s assistance in matching my qualifications with the needs he had for an in-house IT Geek. It worked out well and I am still deliriously happy here at MEIKO. I have nothing but great things to say about the entire experience working with The Hadden Group from start to finish. So much so, that I refer IT industry colleagues to The Hadden Group every chance I get."

Felisa Bill

Prevent Child Abuse of TN

"This was my first time to work with a recruiter and I am so glad it was with Alison Carpenter at the Hadden Group.  Alison was great!  She went over and beyond!  She listened to me and knew the company that would be the perfect fit for me.  She made sure I was prepared and gave me information necessary for a successful interview!  This honestly felt more like a friendship that was built from this experience rather than a business relationship.  I can’t thank Alison enough for connecting me with the ideal non-profit organization and ideal job with a great team of people!  I can’t thank the Hadden Group enough for caring about their job and their purpose for both the company and the individual looking for the job!"

Katrina Peiterson

Southern Land Co.

"I still feel like I'm in a dream. This position so far is exactly where I belong. It's creative work that I enjoy, plus I learn SO much every single day. This was the perfect next step for me. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for working so hard to help me find the right fit for me. I am truly thankful and will never forget it."

Melissa Smoot

Baker Donelson

"I met Carolyne when she first opened The Hadden Group for business, and as a manager of a small law firm, I utilized her services for secretarial hires. We got along great and she always sent me impressive, qualified candidates. Later, when I decided to get out of management and began looking for a legal assistant position, I contacted Carolyne immediately. I was sent on several interviews and ultimately was hired by a large law firm, where I have been happily employed ever since. That was in October of 2002. Obviously, it has been a great match!"

Nicole Garnett

Mckerley + Noonan

"15 years ago I worked with The Hadden Group. The attorney I worked for was closing his practice to start teaching law and was working up until the last day of business, there wasn't time to really search and work with small child at that time. The Hadden Group was diligent and quick in placing me, not once but twice. The second firm closed it's satellite office after I'd been there for 5 years, leaving me that option to transfer to another city. Instead of relocation with small children I contacted The Hadden Group and they once again placed me where I've been for the last 10 years."

Mandy Newman

“In my tenure as a Healthcare Administrator, I have never worked with a recruiter as attentive or professional as Alison Carpenter. Alison helped seamlessly navigate every piece of the process from initial screening to offer, and everything in between. She made what can be a stressful and arduous process flow smoothly, answering all of my questions in a timely manner and providing valuable feedback along the way. I am thrilled to be moving on to the next phase of my career thanks to Alison’s assistance, and I would highly recommend her to any prospective clients and recruits.”
