  • I don't know what I would have done without the Contact 1 team. I moved to DC from a small town and didn't have any connections. Isabel and the rest of Contact 1 helped me find the perfect career in the DMV area and supported me throughout the contract-to-hire process. They made me feel like I wasn't alone in the job search and helped me advocate for myself during the negotiation process with my new employer. I am so thankful for them!

  • I had such a great experience working with Contact 1. Everyone on staff was incredibly thoughtful and attentive, placing me with a local nonprofit in the most meaningful position I have ever held. After almost two years, my role continues to grow within the organization, and I find myself on a very rewarding career path. Contact 1 is unlike any staffing firm I have used in the past, and I really cannot thank them enough.
