Working with Kathy proved to be a truly enjoyable experience. What set her apart from other recruiters I engaged with was her dedication, her personal interest in the candidate and her responsiveness. I felt like she is really working on my behalf and tried hard to understand what I am looking for in the new position. Results speak louder than words – I am starting my new role in July and I’m very excited.
