Sam did an excellent job of informing me about the position's requirements, and the company. Her questions were very well thought out, she clearly told me about next steps, and who I would be speaking with. She was a pleasure to speak with and I felt comfortable discussing all aspects of the opportunity.

My communications with Sam have been great. Not only is she timely, friendly and helpful, but she provided unexpected feedback and advice. This isn't something you always get when going through an interview process.
