They were able to offer recommendations in finding suitable roles for me that matched my qualifications, experience and even preference. Despite being retrenched and not being able to find a job for 6 months, they immediately turned the whole situation around and helped me to network with a list of clientele where I received an expedited interview and offer within 3 days."
