“Sean was instrumental in my search and transition. He listened to what I wanted and was able to identify the right job for me. He took the time to keep me informed as to what to expect throughout the entire process, always making sure to answer all my questions, even if he needed to get back to me on the answer. His advice showed that he understood me and what I was trying to present during the interview process. Throughout the entire process and even with follow-ups after I was hired, Sean cared that I was in the right position with the right fit for me to move forward with my career.”
