Candidate Recommendation – Gillian Pate, Georgia McGavock & Nicole McGaughay

Absolutely fantastic service from Anderson Knight. I came to Anderson Knight when I was absolutely desperate to find a job and unfortunately when I was applying to jobs on my own I wasn’t even getting to the interview stage. After months of trying to find a job and not getting very far I lost hope and stopped applying for jobs. I came across Anderson Knight after a friend recommended me to sign up. Anderson Knight has been so incredible with me. They have been so efficient and professional with making sure all my needs are met and they have consistently kept in touch every step of the way in case I need anything. I would like to highlight Gillian Pate , Georgia McGavock and Nicole McGaughay. After working with these three fantastic people I have now secured my self a full time job which I absolutely love. I feel like such a professional now and I am so happy working in my new job. I would like to thank them for seeing the potential in me and making sure I got what I needed out of the Anderson Knight service as I wouldn’t have been able to do this on my own. I would also like to thank them for making me aware of my potential and how much I can achieve as I feel that my confidence has improved greatly. Even though I have started my job they have still kept in contact to make sure I settle in and they tell me they are there if I need them. I feel so lucky to have come across Anderson Knight. 10 out of 10 and I will be recommending Anderson Knight to everyone.
