    I had a wonderful experience with MindSpring! I specifically worked with Anna and Gavin and they were incredibly helpful when it came to interview preparation and job clarification. The position that they found me is not only perfect for my skill set, but a great culture fit. I cannot thank them enough for their professionalism throughout the process and keeping me informed every step of the way.


    I had a great experience and would recommend MindSpring to anyone looking to hire.

    I had one phone interview with one of the managing principles and then was brought into the office to meet with him as well as the owner, Gavin and another recruiter who I would work on the same team with. I heard back after a few days and was given an offer.
