“I would like to start off by saying that I had never felt so prepared for an interview until I met Chris. He provided me so much great material along with a great before interview call that gave me all the confidence I needed to make my interview great. The whole process since I first spoke to Chris was around a month and a half and he found me. I loved working with him and would definitely recommend anyone currently looking for a position to speak to Chris.”
