I really appreciated the unsolicited guidance I didn't know I needed about making my resume more currently functional for marketing in this competitive job market. Also appreciated was her very clear and direct information about current market and expectations.

Many treat the calls as a one way street. If you do not meet the company's requirements then you get an immediate "goodbye". Sam spent the time that was needed to understand MY particular requirements.
