Love your agent!

June 3rd, 2011
This week I received a great letter from one of our Band Leaders on the Cunard fleet.   I thought it was important to share because recruiters work very hard in the background to find specific work that suits a candidate.  In a given week, our recruiters talk, listen to, research, and evaluate hundreds of individuals, and only a few end up materializing into concrete employment.  Believe me, it’s hard work, and a lot of it happens behind the scene.  When this work is recognized as the best in the industry, I feel it’s worth it to post it here as follows.  Thank you Fred for taking the time.  Wow!  Great work, Carl.
Dear Sir,
My name is Fred Schactler. I’ve been working in the cruise industry for 25 years as a guest artist and music director / bandmaster.  I’m writing to tell you that your agent, Carl Girard, is the best representation I’ve had in my cruise career.
He’s respectful and he listens. He’s informed and able to answer my questions. He understands what I want and calls me when he has something that fits.
He communicates well; answering emails and returning phone calls promptly.
He has my complete confidence and I’m thankful to have him representing me.
Fred Schactler
