“I worked with my recruiter during a career transition where I needed to build a strategy to attract the best companies possible. He was always easy to reach and I really appreciate his willingness to guide and provide me helpful career advice even if it took up a lot of his time. He consistently kept me up to date with the feedback from hiring managers and ensured I get the best offer possible. It was a pleasure working with him and I believe his positive energy had a positive impact on the companies we worked with.” Candidate, SThree
