He was incredibly useful in preparing me for interviews, ensuring that I was well equipped with the knowledge and insights I needed to succeed. With Nathan’s help, I was able to obtain exactly the outcome I wanted in an incredibly short space of time.” – Tim Sullivan, Associate at Davis Polk
“Nathan, an exceptional recruiter, was very professional, attentive, and enthusiastic in presenting me a hard-to-find amazing career opportunity and ultimately letting it happen. Nothing could be said enough to express my gratitude for Nathan. From the day he approached me through a LinkedIn message to the interview and visa application process, he supported me and guided me throughout the whole process, which would have been daunting without him.
