Mark has been an excellent recruiter! He has made my transition from staff nurse to travel nurse a breeze. He fought hard to get me the best rate possible, has been very attentive to my needs and always available via call or text when needed. Looking forward to a successful career as a travel nurse with Fortus and Mark. He truly cares about his nurses and treats me like family!!!

From day one, Mark has made my first travel nursing assignment a successful adventure. I admit I was nervous taking on my first travel assignment but Mark was with me every step of the way , guiding me, finding the perfect assignment. Mark has a huge uplifting personality, and really cares about his clients. If I have a question or concern, I know I can depend on Mark to be there for me anytime day or night. I am looking forward to many more assignments with Mark as my recruiter.

Mark has made such a huge impact on my professional and personal life. He works so hard finding positions that are right for me. Since I have started with him, I have been able to purchase my first house and now am able to plan for the future for my daughters careers. Anytime something goes wrong, or right, he is there 24/7. Never had an experience like this and look forward to continuing working with him. Mark always has YOUR best interest in mind. The absolute best!

Mark Simon is the absolute MOST responsive recruiter I have met thus far. The 1st time he speaks with you he talks to you like a friend you haven’t seen in 10 years that wants to catch up on how life’s treating you and what all of your current goals are so that he can help meet all of your needs to get you there! He stands by his word…if he says he going to do something you better believe he’s going to do it! Jut a great person all around!
