Sam was born and raised in Portland and is a graduate of Oregon State University. He is naturally enthusiastic, competitive and has a genuine ability to connect with people. When asked about one of his strongest traits he’s said, “I am good at figuring things out”. Combining this mentality with his tenacity and ability to work well with people, Sam strives to form strong relationships with both candidates and clients.

Staying fit through running and weight training. Also enjoys trying new restaurants and craft breweries
He asked great questions about my experience and what I was looking for. He was personable and we had a couple fun conversations. :) He seemed to understand what matters to coders. He connected me with the job I ended up getting, and also connected me with a second job which I wouldn't normally have felt qualified to apply for, but which I got a ways through the interview process with, which helped me gain confidence. And he was able to tell me what to expect on the interviews and what to be prepared for, which helped me ace them! :)
Sam was by far the most helpful Recruiter I've ever had the pleasure of working with. Not only was he kind, courteous, and easy to converse with, but he was the only Recruiter who has ever provided me with resources to help prepare for my interview. His communication skills are stellar and was great in providing feedback and status updates along the way, which is truly a rare find in the Recruitment world.
When I first met Sam I wasn't planning on starting to look at a starting a new position until several months later, no matter, he took note of what I was interested in at that time and we scheduled a follow up for some months later. After we met up and from then on Sam provided me with only interesting and relevant opportunities. It was ease itself interacting with Sam and I never felt like I was wasting my time during these interactions (as I often do with recruiters). When I begin my next job search here in the Portland area Sam White will be the first resource I look to.
