    I was contacted by Newport for a new job opportunity. I was never asked to pay any fees working with them. This firm has been nothing but extremely helpful and professional through my new hire experience ( from setting up the initial interview to filling out new hire employee packet). Job well done!

    I have had the opportunity to work with John Fitzpatrick and Newport Strategic Search since 2003. His amazing team of elite professionals do an incredible job of matching potential candidates with new employers. They also seem to have a real insight on opportunities that are not posted that you never would have heard of if you had not been talking to them. This is because of their extensive network of hiring professionals that they have gotten to know over the years. Whether you are somebody looking for a new position, or, a hiring manager looking to find someone, I would highly recommend that you reach out to Newport Strategic Search for help!
