“From the moment I first received a call from Teresa inquiring about my interest in a position, until the moment I received an official offer letter, Teresa was nothing less than the most helpful individual I have ever had the pleasure of working with during a process such as this one. She was always keeping me informed of any and all updates and she provided me with an abundance of good advice, suggestions, and recommendations that I am certain directly contributed to my securing the position. In fact, I am confident if not for my conversations with Teresa throughout this process, the odds of my receiving the offer would have been greatly reduced. I just wanted to express my most sincere appreciation for all of her efforts; make everyone aware of what an outstanding job she did from start to finish, and I implore others to use my experience with her as a template for how every recruiter should interact with their candidates.”

Teresa has excellent communication and follow-up skills which I believe are essential in her position.
