  • Gary was a critical piece in my job search. Gary took my resume and would send me several opportunities that interested me and would be a good fit. Gary took the time out of his day to help with interview preperation, helped me draft cover letters, and follow-up correspondence after each interview. Gary was very involved and asked that we have a quick debrief after each interview. I highly encourage anyone that is looking to make a switch or is looking for a position to use Gary in their search.
