I had the honour of working with Daniel Morgan from Vanrath, and there is not enough space in this review section to describe how grateful I am that we crossed paths and how thankful I am for all his hard work in securing my recent employment.
I spoke with Daniel a few years ago, had just returned from the US, I was having difficulty finding the right position, and then Covid happened also. However, through all of this, Daniel never forgot my vision and my goals, he understood my skills and what I was looking for. He was always supportive, friendly, professional, persistent, and patient with me at times also.
Daniel never gave up on assisting me and has since secured me the job of my dreams, and for that, I will be forever grateful.
