Software QA Engineer
Ben isn't just a recruiter, he's a career-growth partner. I wasn't actively looking for a new job, but asked Ben to send me anything that looked interesting. Since he understands my goals and desire for new challenges, he reached out to me with an opportunity that I couldn't pass up! Throughout the interview process, Ben took care of the details so I could focus on preparing for the discussions. He was prompt to follow up and discuss how things went and any concerns or questions I had after each interview. It's evident that Ben cares about connecting the right people with the right companies and understands the dynamics involved in this. I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to take their career to the next level!

I was contacted by Ben within hours of showing an interest in a position with his firm. He conducted a very detailed screening for his client and within a very short time, I had an interview with their recruiter. He continued to work with through the interview process and kept me informed. He made the process so easy.
