Testimonial

The support of Georgia during the selection process was amazing, and I have never had this kind of support from any recruiter. 

She got me information, gave me advice on how to approach the interviews, checked my status before each step, and was the first to call me after the interviews! 

I will start a completely new job soon and saying thank you is not enough!
