Sam is a wonderful recruiter and a very good listener when it comes to understanding your background and needs. She is very knowledgeable with the different types of job industries and understands if there is a potential fit with a client that matches the role you're seeking, she'll do her absolute best to prepare you. I will always be grateful for Sam to be able to help and guide me into landing my first job after graduating from college with only minimal experience.
