Rowney helped me land the first job I interviewed for!

I’d like to thank Rowney Jensen for his guidance, dedication, and thorough follow through with helping me connect with a potential employer. With his help and direction, I was able to land the very first job I interviewed for. I am already through my first week and could not be more excited for my new position and the direction it will take me in my career! Thank you again Rowney!!!! Best regards, Matt Mickle
I have come across many recruitment firms which have had different approach, different conduct, different ideas and different criteria, depending mainly from their attitude, experience will power and professionalism. Words are not sufficient to express my happiness from day one, November 2017, when contacted by LilliamZanatti, in merit of an opportunity with her client. Lilliam has been outstanding in her performance, committed, focused, kind, constant, professional, experienced and above all, very human. The process has lasted four months, in which time she has been deeply dedicated to my case. Moreover, even when I was tired and stressed due to the length and  demands  of the process itself, Lilliam went out of her way to support me with her positive energy and amazing attitude at any given hours or day. I don’t think I have the proverbial capacity of expressing my happiness about Lilliam’s performance. I have worked closely with recruiters for many years, via corporate or via personal business. I must confess to you that Lilliam’s performance, has been, by far, the best experienced received in my entire career. I pledge to your firm, undoubtedly and unreservedly, my gladness into describe this astonishing performance of Lilliam Zanatti, which has given me another great opportunity in life.
