Tom has been an excellent advisor and very supportive.  He helped me in negotiation and whole communication with potential employer, which at the end resulted in successful outcome.  He truly made sure I was happy at all times with the process.  Professional but still very friendly.  Tom will be definitely my first contact in future.

I am very pleased with the fast and professional service.  My experience was delightful; Tom was really helpful & friendly. I have already recommended Tom to other colleagues and I will continue do so in the future. Tom was next to me before and after the interviews and supported me all the way through the process. Thanks again for helping me secure the perfect job.
