Holyoke Community College, Presidential Search
"I have had great success working with the Pauly Group, both as a candidate and also in retaining their services for academic administrator positions. From a candidate perspective, Angela and her team were beneficial in helping me to understand the priorities and desires of the institutions in which I was applying, and provided great consultation to ensure that I was only considering colleges that aligned with my values and preferences, and institutions that could benefit from my strengths and experiences. They provided insight and guidance on every phase of the interview process, from application to job offer, and really strive to know candidates beyond their curriculum vitas."
Christina Royal, Ph.D. President
Holyoke Community College
"I strongly recommend The Pauly Group for anyone seeking to fill a high level position at a community college. We used The Pauly Group for a search for a new president at Holyoke Community College, and we couldn't have been happier with both the process and the result. The Pauly Group specializes in working with community colleges, so their large network of people to reach out to meant we had a very strong candidate pool. They were invaluable in helping us to prioritize candidates, develop effective questions for the interviewing process, arrange for and hold the interviews, and have thorough discussions to come to consensus about who we wanted to hire. Best of all, I hear regular praise about our new president from people with widely varying roles in relationship to the college."

"As a candidate, I found the Pauly Group extremely responsive throughout the entire search process. Angela and her team were readily available to answer questions, provide feedback, and give advice. It was clear from the beginning of the process that the Pauly Group wanted me to succeed as a candidate."
Dr. Paul Carlsen President
Lakeshore Technical College
Blackhawk Technical College, Presidential Candidate
"Working with the Pauly Group as a candidate for the Presidency at Blackhawk Technical College was a wonderful experience. The ongoing communication with Ms. Provart and her team really helped me put my best foot forward. I am thankful for having the opportunity to work with her. She was both professional and personable throughout the entire process. In addition, the Board of Trustees were very satisfied with the guidance, the process, and the candidate pool the Pauly Group provided during the search for President. I would not hesitate to utilize the Pauly Group in the future."
Dr. Tracy Pierner President
Black Hawk College
Lake Michigan College, Presidential Search
"Pauly Group did an outstanding job assisting us with our recent presidential search. Hiring a firm with community college expertise made all the difference in the world. The insights they had regarding candidates, personalities and backgrounds was worth its' weight in gold."
Mary Jo Tomasini former Board Chair
Lake Michigan College
Lakeshore Technical College, Presidential Search
"We selected the Pauly Group over two other search firms we interviewed for our Presidential Search at Lakeshore Technical College in Wisconsin. We know we made the right choice. From soliciting potential applicants, to screening and categorizing the applications, to scheduling interviews and conducting background checks, what could have been a very daunting and time consuming process was made extremely manageable. Angela and her team are very organized and attentive to important details. Communication with them was timely and transparent. Our search committee found using their secure website to review the application materials was very easy. We had a very strong applicant pool and selected an outstanding candidate to be our next President. I do not believe we would have had the success we experienced without the Pauly Group. I highly recommend them."

Brookdale Community College, Vice President Candidate
"As a candidate, working with Pauly Group was a breath of fresh air. Angela Provart kept me informed in a candid but encouraging way, and I always had a good sense of what to expect. She helped me understand how I came across, which issues to address, and how to stay calm in the midst of what can be an emotional process. She also has a sense of humor, which is too rare in this profession. I'd be happy to work with her again."

"In today’s world, talent acquisition is one of the most important things college’s need to be focused on. Recruiting talent externally has its risks, however we have found comprehensive referencing to be one of the best investments we can make when considering external hires. The Pauly Group arguably has one of the most robust, comprehensive, and accurate referencing processes we have ever worked with. I highly recommend them."
