I highly recommend the recruiting services of Hill Country Search Advisors. We had two critical Accounting positions open and needed them filled very quickly. Ariana & Spencer not only provided top candidates for the openings very efficiently, but also found candidates that were the perfect fit for ALK-Abello and for our Accounting department. This helped us achieve a fairly seamless transition in a short amount of time. In a very fast-paced, deadline driven atmosphere, this was a very important accomplishment. I would definitely turn to Hill Country Search Advisors for any Accounting recruiting needs in the future, and it has personally been a very easy process working directly with Ariana.

Finance Director, 


Spencer and his team at Hill Country Search Advisors have successfully assisted our company during a period of growth. Before hiring Hill Country Search Advisors, we did all of our recruiting internally. We have requested HCSA’s assistance for hiring both Accounting, Administrative, and Operational Staff & Managers, and they have consistently produced strong, qualified candidates who have been valuable additions to our team at Wastewater Solutions.

Spencer and his team are professional and knowledgeable when it comes to the technical aspects of our job requirements, and they also understand how important it is to match the “soft skills” of their candidates with our company culture. I would highly recommend Hill Country Search Advisors to other business owners or hiring executives.

Hill County Search Advisors really ended up saving us time and money - not to mention stress and headache! I have known and worked with Ariana for many years now and she has always provided excellent, high-quality candidates for our various positions, along with great customer service. 

We had been working for some time to fill a niche Analyst position and were struggling to find the right fit in both personality and skill-set. I recommended using Hill Country Search Advisors’ services, and as soon as they began the search, they sent a great temporary employee over that same day, to immediately stem the work overflow we were experiencing. It became clear pretty quickly that that individual was likely to be a great fit for the permanent role. We have since hired their candidate as a full-time employee and could not be more pleased.

I worked with Spencer as a candidate looking for a new job out of public accounting, and to hire candidates in my current position. In both situations, I felt like Spencer was acting in my best interests and utilizing his accounting background to match the right people with the right roles. I would highly recommend going to Spencer and Hill Country Search Advisors if you are looking to change jobs or looking to fill accounting or finance positions.

Our company engaged Hill Country Search Advisors to fill a new Accounting Manager position on my team. Their process-driven approach is highly organized, responsive, and client-oriented. As a result, they provided us with highly qualified candidates quickly, resulting in our hiring an exceptional candidate faster than we expected. Hill Country Search Advisors exceeded expectations and we couldn’t be happier. We look forward to working with them for many years to come.

Spencer was one of my first contacts in the Austin area when I relocated from Chicago in 2010. His network in the accounting and finance community is extensive. I am never surprised to hear that another colleague is familiar with Spencer or his firm. The quality of the companies he works with is testament to his industry knowledge and professionalism. Spencer is responsible for my current placement, where I am extremely happy, and I will continue to recommend him for either side of employment search

I have worked with different recruiters during my career and I can honestly say that Ariana is the best – she is fantastic to work with! She is extremely professional and passionate about her work, and she successfully holds both the interests of the company and that of the candidate in her mind at all times. She has provided me with valuable support and coaching over the past 9 years, and I continue to go back to her anytime I’m searching for a job, hiring Staff, or need an honest opinion or career advice. Ariana is also very well connected and delivers on her word.

Sara was the Recruiter that placed me in my current position. In a word, she is excellent! Great coaching through the process, precise feedback and total transparency throughout. She followed up on a regular basis after my new job started to make sure things were good. I can't say enough about the value she brought to the entire process! A real professional and great person. High character and attention to detail make for a winning combination with Sara!

I had the pleasure of being recruited by Sara for my most recent position. Throughout the entire recruiting process, Sara went above and beyond to make sure that I had the absolute best chance of getting the job. Her expertise included but was not limited to job matching, coaching, status updates, de-briefing, negotiations, etc. She's a pro and this was by far the easiest recruitment process I have ever had, in very large part due to Sara. I would recommend Hill Country Search Advisors to anyone who is currently searching for a new position
