Testimonials:
“Paul urged me to mail follow-up letters after the interview and provided me with correct spellings of names and with addresses. Since being hired my new supervisor and the Senior LAN Admin both came to me and said that they appreciated the follow-up letters. Paul also helped me prepare the appropriate plan for resignation. He follows through with what he says, follows-up regularly and timely, and listens well — he’s an approachable person.”
