30 years later, I still credit my career to Susan Gordon at Lynne Palmer. She believed in me and helped me secure my first job in publishing—a job landed me numerous contacts, friends, and countless opportunities in the industry. She is creative, thorough, tenacious, and continues to work diligently to secure professional connections that matter.
— Leslie R, Media PR Executive
The professionalism and attention detail this team provided throughout the process made me feel at ease accepting an offer to join a new team.

When first approached about an opening, I went from cold to warm in the first conversation with this team. That one conversation led to an amazing opportunity. I’m so glad I took their call. They knew I was a match before I did, and it is an exciting next step in my career.
— Alan E, Group Publisher, Major Retail Chain of Multi-Channel Newspapers
I just finished working with Susan for a book publishing position.  She is a great listener, always made herself available including weekends and odd hours, very easy to talk to and gives great insight, and suggestions on what the employer is looking for.
— Sherrie, Publisher
Working with Jackie Riley of Lynne Palmer was the best job application experience I’ve had in my 25-year career. She was professional, thorough, and an experienced and helpful guide through the process. 
— Rebecca, Vice President, Media Company
Susan Gordon’s professionalism and honesty were a beacon of light during a process that can be daunting and sometimes be a waiting and guessing game. I am so thankful she was there to handle and finesse the awkward but very important salary and benefits negotiations. She was a true gift to work with. I will be recommending her to all my colleagues looking to change jobs or looking to hire as well.
— Ilene, Sales Manager, Publishing Company
