Shannon at Ultimate Recruitment got me a job in a pandemic – that should tell you all you need to know about her. Shannon has a great work ethic and a great intuition for who will fit well at each firm. She helped me land my dream job. If anything changes, I know I’m going back to her at Ultimate to find my next job. I can’t recommend her highly enough.

Janis Baragar- Ogilvie LLP- Edmonton 2020

From the first time I was contacted by Ultimate Recruitment I could tell it was a great company. Shannon thoroughly explained the process and what was expected from me. She was honest and up front about what she thought would and wouldn’t work and in the end I landed a great job! The whole process was way faster than I expected, so I just knew that Ultimate was a well-run company I could trust. Highly recommend!

I have known Shannon for many years and have utilized her services many times both as an employee and employer. She does an exemplary job at matching her candidates with the employer based on each of their criteria. When I have recruitment needs Shannon is my first call, every time.

Kyla Smith – DUNPHY BEST BLOCKSOM LLP - Managing Director (Calgary) - 2020

Shannon is attentive, approachable, personable and extremely well respected and connected within the Edmonton legal community.

Tara Heppell - DLA Piper - Former Senior Litigation Paralegal - 2020

I have been a client of Shannon’s for 10 years. Shannon’s unique knowledge of the accounting field enables her to understand a job seekers skill set & level ensuring a perfect fit to what her corporate clients are looking for in an employee. She has a knack for looking at your resume, pointing out the exact areas that need to be tailored to ensure that you are putting your best “face forward” to perspective employers.

She has always successfully matched my skills and personality to the right work environment making it the perfect job & environment. I was able to fit in, excel and grow not only as a professional, but as a person. Shannon has been the only recruiter that has every “checked in” with me to see how I was doing – that shows she truly cares!

There is no other firm I would recommend as she has both client’s best interests at heart. She brings so much knowledge to the table that aides her in making the best recommendations and fits on both ends.

Denene Ewert - HGA & Associates - Senior Accounting Technician - 2020

Shannon at Ultimate Recruitment is a superstar!!! She really listens and then tries to match you with the job, which truly is a great trait for a recruiter. She is attentive and responds quickly to any of your questions. She genuinely cares and that comes across in her communications. She is dedicated and committed to finding the right placement for you. It was a pleasure to work with her.

I am very happy with her services and would surely recommend her to anyone looking for a job. She gets the job done and gets you a job too. Win – win in my opinion!

Elsie Philips – Receptionist - 2020, Shourie Bhatia

We have relied on Shannon to assist us with a number of placements over the years. Shannon is tenacious and committed to the responsibility of serving her clients. She has a strong network amongst assistants and paralegals and can be called upon when you need staffing solutions. We would like to thank her for a number of great placements who have become valued members of our firm.

Nitin Bhatia – SHOURIE BHATIA LLP - 2020

I have known Shannon for a few years. When I was looking for a job as an employee, she helped me get a few interviews.
When I became a business owner and an employer, Shannon again found a few fabulous workers. Our business also had a free online ad, so we got many applicants. However, none of them stood out like the ones Shannon referred. Shannon has been quite responsive and listens to our wish lists.
Thus far, we hired two employees through her and have been quite happy with our decisions.
Thank you, Shannon!

Yoko Azumaya - Barr Picard - Barrister and Solicitor - 2020

Working with Shannon made me gain confidence and never to be afraid. It took us less than a month to get hired. During the 3 weeks she sent to best places which she saw me being a perfect fit there, the interviews were tough but she new I was going to make it. Today I am employed by one of the top-notch offices and I know I belong here and Shannon got me not only what I wanted but even what I did not imagine, because she took pride in helping me and she knew exactly what I wanted. I would recommend anyone out there looking for employment to meet Shannon and before you know it you will be all smiles like me and feeling very important. Thank you kindly for your kind heart and good job and knowing to meet my needs.

Leticia - Field Law - 2020

Ultimate recruitment found me a great job really fast. They are professional and fantastic. I have recommended ultimate recruitment to all my friends. I would use them again in a heartbeat.

Michelle DiLoreto - Brownlee - LLP2020

Shannon is very knowledgeable in the recruitment industry. She has provided me with great assistance and guidance and answered all the questions I had. Shannon has kept me updated through the entire process and made the whole experience very smooth. Even after my placement, she has followed up with me to make sure I was satisfied with my position. It has been a pleasure to work with her and I would definitely recommend Shannon to anyone who is in search of a new opportunity.

Iryna Stets - Parlee McLaws - 2020

I have worked twice with Shannon to find two different placements – one of which I stayed at for 6 years. Shannon takes time to get to know you so she can find a position that will fit what you’re looking for and she’s an excellent communicator who responds quickly. I recommend Shannon to anyone looking for a new position in the legal field.

Megan Brent - Brownlee LLP - 2020

Shannon has been extremely helpful with our placement of our most recent employee. She has been informative and performs follow ups to make sure everything is running smoothly. Thanks Shannon, for making this process much easier!

Tammy-Lynn Loren - Office Manager, Venture Law - 2020

I have known Shannon for many years through my work in the legal field. It wasn’t until this past September that I met with her to enlist her assistance in securing a new family law paralegal position. Shannon was extremely pleasant to work with, she was very quick to get my resume out to potential employers and had me booked in for an interview within the week. It was a pleasure to work with Shannon and she made sure the Employment Offer I received was exactly what I was looking for!”
I would highly recommend Ultimate Recruitment to anyone that is in need of some assistance in securing new employment in these very trying times.

Alayna Astle - Spectrum Law - 2020

I have dealt with Shannon on a personal basis over a number of years and in fact, have her to thank for my current position at Rohit Group, which I’ve now had for 9+ years.

Shannon has also had a hand in the placement of a number of other staff members at our company. The candidates she’s referred to us have consistently been top quality as far as experience, quality and work ethic are concerned.

I would have no issues in engaging her services in future if our company chooses to return to engaging external parties for this purpose. Currently, our HR department is fully staffed and are conducting employee searches in-house.

Sharon Ardron - Rohit - 2020

I approached Shannon when I was looking for a career change a couple of weeks ago. I used to work at a small law firm and wanted to expand my horizons. I have never used a recruiter before and was naturally skeptical about contacting one.

Even though I have known Shannon for a short while, she showed nothing but professionalism while handling my case. Within a matter of hours, she booked my first interview, obtained referrals from my previous employers and patiently guided me through the process step by step.

In a mere week, I went to a dozen interviews and received a job offer from a well-established, prestigious law firm.

If I were to describe Shannon in one word, it would definitely be a “go-getter”. She knows exactly what her clients want, and she delivers on her promises. I will certainly recommend Shannon to anyone who wants a quality service combined with years of expertise and fast results.

Katelyn Kripak - Litigation Assistant (SB LLP) - 2021

I have been in contact with many recruiters over the years – both in the States and in Canada – and I can say without a doubt, Shannon is truly one of the best in the business because of her passion, transparency, and wealth of knowledge.

I truly cannot thank Shannon enough for helping me land my next role and being in my corner throughout the process. Searching for a job can get tough – especially in a pandemic – but having Shannon’s guidance and support made this process almost effortless. I will be sure to recommend Ultimate Recruitment to all my friends and family!

Mary - 2021

Working with Shannon at Ultimate Recruitment was streamlined, convenient and effective. I found Shannon to be both down to earth and honest. Shannon landed me an interview followed by an employment offer in three days (including the weekend)! What a phenomenal experience.

Jonalynn Barron - Witten LLP - Wills & Estates Paralegal - 2021

I have dealt with agencies / recruiters for most of my career and was seeing no movement in my current situation. Then Shannon reached out to me and quickly we connected in a trusting relationship. She was able to provide comments on my Resume and assist in my search for a suitable longtime position in Calgary. Things progressed and within a couple weeks we had a signed letter of employment. I was thrilled and would totally recommend Ultimate Recruitment.

Lisa Wintrip - Floater, Parlee McLaws (Calgary) 2021

I recently applied to an ad for employment on Indeed posted by Shannon Anderson at Ultimate Recruitment.  She reached out to me the same day and had an interview booked within a few days,  a second interview and Offer of Employment a few days after that.  She negotiated a competitive compensation package I was able to leave that to her.  Within less than one week Shannon had placed me in a corporate paralegal position with a top firm.  She truly is the ultimate recruiter!

Eve Bertrand - Corporate Paralegal, Bryan & Company LLP (Edmonton) 2021

I recently used Ultimate Recruitment to help with my job search. Shannon was very helpful on more than one occasion. She listened to what I was looking for in a job and kept in regular contact with me even though it took some time for the right job to become available. She made what can be a very stressful time as easy as possible. I highly recommend Ultimate Recruitment for your job search.

Debbie Thomson -Senior Litigation Assistant , Field Law (Edmonton)2021

My experience with Shannon @Ultimate Recruitment was wonderful. She has a great big personality that made me feel extremely comfortable.  I appreciate the time she took to get to know me and understand what I was looking for in a placement.

I was unsure and nervous on the day of my interview but Shannon had all the answers and managed to put my mind at ease.

Thank you Shannon for all of your work. I am in a position that I really enjoy and work with a great group of people what more could a girl want?

Kathleen Newman - Legal Assistant, SB LLP (Edmonton) 2021

Shannon @Ultimate Recruitment made the process of interviewing and finding the right employment easy and personable. You knew what would be a good fit for me even before I did, and even though I chose a different opportunity than the one you helped me find the first go around, you were just as helpful the second time around. You hustle and work hard and really do what you can to find the right fit, and I truly appreciate the help. I’m happier in my current employment than I have been in a long time and you helped me get there!

Ashley Noden-Legal Assistant , Brownlee (Edmonton) 2021

After 20 years at one firm, jumping into just any position was not what I wanted to do. Shannon and her team at Ultimate Recruitment are amazing! Shannon really worked with me to figure out the best fit. She provided feedback, said no when she thought a firm wouldn’t work and gave me the reasons why. She was patient and did not just drop me into the first job that came along. I’m loving my new position. Thank you Shannon!! 

Lava Schofield-Senior Paralegal, Walsh LLP (Calgary) 2021

I met Shannon of Ultimate Recruitment many years ago before she was her own boss.  Shannon is always friendly and professional, she works hard for you and always has your back and does what she needs to so you get what you need and want.  She is also patient and will wait for you to be ready with no pressure.  She goes above and beyond and for that I thank her and you won’t regret going with Ultimate Recruitment.

Kimberly Bodie-Debt Recovery Paralegal, Field Law (Edmonton) 2021

It has been an absolute pleasure working with Shannon at Ultimate Recruitment! I had a great experience.

Shannon is approachable and has a great personality that made me feel very comfortable. Shortly after our first meeting, she put me forward for an interview. Throughout the whole process she supported me, called me to see how each stage of the interview went and was prompt in following up. Within a few days, I had a job offer. I am now very happy in my new role and would recommend Shannon in a heartbeat to anyone interested in a position in the legal field.

Thank you, Shannon!

Mirabella Maier - Patent Paralegal, Field Law - (Calgary) 2021

“Shannon at Ultimate Recruitment reached out to me after I had indicated via my Indeed profile that I was actively seeking a new job opportunity.  After setting up an interview for me with a firm she had recommended I would be a great fit for, I was offered a position within that firm the following week.  Shannon’s work ethic, attention to detail, honesty and great personality made working with her an easy and comfortable process.  Throughout, Shannon continuously kept me up-to-date and supported me by always following up after an interview.  Shannon listened to what I was looking for in a firm and helped me secure a job where I am very happy in my new role.  It has been an absolute pleasure working with Shannon at Ultimate Recruitment and I can’t thank her enough!  For anyone looking for opportunities within the legal field, I would highly recommend Shannon to anyone I know that is seeking a new opportunity.

Thank you!”

Again, thank you so much!

Madison Rhude, Field Law (Calgary)2022

Shannon has consistently reached out to me with positions that she thought that I would be a good fit for, and has always worked hard for me as a client. She is excellent at keeping me in the loop and keeping in touch with me about where things are at with potential positions and interviews and is the first person that I recommend people contact when they are in the market for a new role. Shannon always seems to have her finger on the pulse of what’s happening in the legal industry and I always trust that she can help me keep current on what I need to know when looking for a role and has even helped with updating my resume!

Krista Gibson , Dunphy Best Blocksom (Calgary) 2021

Shannon is an excellent professional, diligent and extremely efficient.  She recently placed me at my current position and the whole process from receiving her email with a job description to the verbal offer of employment took 4 days. Shannon already had my portfolio ready to go and when I gave her the green light to submit my resume to the employer she also sent my references, and as the employer was in a time constraint to hire quickly, Shannon was able to deliver and meet both the employer and my expectations. Shannon is a delight to work with and she knows what is expected of her in this fast paced environment.

Carla Ferreira, Field Law (Calgary) 2022

Shannon was super helpful in assisting me getting my current job which I love. She assisted with tips on my résumé, and was easily available to answer questions, and to get a hold of. She was very friendly and personable and made me feel comfortable. She did an awesome job at negotiating my salary, which I’m very happy with. I would recommend Shannon’s services to everyone.

Karalyne Taylor, Resource Assistant Calgary

Shannon Anderson of Ultimate Recruitment is an excellent recruiter.  She is a real go getter and did not give up looking and finding new positions for me twice.  I highly recommend Shannon if you are looking for a new position.

Paula Boltuc, Corporate Records Legal Assistant - 2023

I have worked in the legal industry for almost two decades and I have never met anyone with the quality of connections and level of professionalism that Shannon (Ultimate)  has. There is no one who cares more about the “employer” and “employee”, equally, in the recruiting industry. You will never convince me otherwise. Shannon takes the time to get to know both parties, and is an EXPERT at placement.  If you ask anyone in the legal world, they will tell you;  she is the best in the business, and you can count on quality and care when working with her. I never wanted  “a job”. I want  “THE BEST JOB EVER”, because I work very hard, and who doesn’t? Shannon (Ultimate) gets that.  I also like to work with people who are smart, professional, and highly skilled, that’s why I could never work with another recruiting company. If you want a recruiter who cares, understands occupational roles and personalities, then you want Ultimate.   There is no one faster, smarter or more well-connected. Period.

Aysha H, Real-Estate Paralegal - 2023

Shannon at Ultimate Recruitment was the best. She kept me up to date with possible job opportunities and secured me multiple interviews at different firms. Thanks to Shannon, I landed an incredible job at one of Calgary’s best law firms as a legal assistant. I will definitely be utilizing Ultimate Recruitment’s services in the future!!

Emily Rye, Legal Assistant – 2023

I have had the pleasure of working with Shannon twice.  Both times she nudged me outside of my comfort zone and encouraged me to open up my mind to possibilities.  While i was nervous at first she had an outlook i had not considered and it served me well both times.  She remained professional at all times and I would highly recommend anyone to give her an opportunity to find them a wonderful place to work.

Gayleen Russel, Corp/Comm Paralegal 2023

Highly Recommend Ultimate Recruitment! I have had the “Ultimate” experience with this gem of an organization.  My recruiter, Shannon Anderson, absolutely fabulous.  She has such a keen sense and ability of where to place you.  She sticks with you and makes you feel as though you are her only client and concern, determined to find you the perfect position!

Thank you, Shannon at Ultimate Recruitment, for believing in me and having my back!

Shannon was absolutely wonderful to work with! I was given her name by a friend who knew I was relocating to Edmonton and would be looking for a new job in the legal profession. Shannon was quick to respond when I reached out. Not only did she help me update my resume and prioritize my skills to the job I wanted, she found me an interview almost immediately with a fabulous firm that hired me.

The team at Ultimate Recruitment also reached out to my references right away and spoke so kindly of me during their process of gathering information. The whole experience was seamless for me and Shannon gave me every confidence in preparing for my interview.

Shannon is a true professional, she was able to find me a great position. She listened to my wants and needs to get me the position I wanted. I highly recommend her services.

Janelle Garner

Shannon contacted my references right away to get the ball rolling. Once my resume is out to her contact and set in motion, she got a hold of me to find out my availability. Then, all I had to do was trust her and show up for an interview. I had no idea that I was going to end up at a top tier law firm in Calgary when I sent out resume to Ultimate Recruitment in Edmonton. Shannon’s “direct to the point” communication style makes her great negotiator and she will be out there looking out for your best interest as she did for me. Thanks, Shannon, for having that trust and confidence in me. You truly made my dream come true!
