Amplify Solutions assisted in placing me into a Test Engineering Manager role.  I recommend Amplify Solutions for their outstanding level of professionalism and knowledge of the industry.

Maybe most importantly, what stood out about Amplify’s recruitment style was their undivided attention in maintaining a fresh dialog between me, them, and the hiring company.

Amplify had played a significant role in guiding me through the application, interview, and pre-hiring process that landed me my first real job out of university.  They helped prepared me to be my best before each of my interviews  for various contract assignments over the past five years.

I recently got hired on as a permanent employee at Microsoft  and without Amplify this would never have happened.
