“Beth Cliff from Redfish contacted me about a position that I applied for online about 2 hours after I hit “submit resume”. She walked me through the details of the position and the company. She was very comforting with all my questions and concerns and she was able to get back to me with answers from the company if needed. She kept me informed on each step of the hiring process and contacted me about any leads or changes from the company. We were able to work out a time and date for when I would be able to make in for an in-person interview. Seeing as this was a relocation position for me, she made sure that I was comfortable with the switch. As I told her, this was the perfect position for me and she worked to make sure I was able to at least get my foot in the door for an interview. I was very pleased with her attitude, service and friendly advice when it came to landing this amazing position for an amazing company.” – John Friese
