    Interview

    I was contacted via E-mail by a recruiter, Susan. The process involved exchanging a few E-mails, a test, and a few phone interviews.

    The recruiter responded to Emails near instantly. She was very easy to talk to. She went above and beyond preparing me for the technical interview by reformatting my resume on her own with my permission. It felt like having a personal advocate.

    I just wrote the review for Susan.
