Sophia was very helpful throughout the process! She was very responsive and regularly kept in touch with me even after I got a job. The entire process - from the initial call to the job offer - only took a week! Overall a very positive experience.

Legal Recruiter Sophia Damshenas was enthusiastic, encouraging and extremely helpful. I felt confident from the start and was certain that I had someone who was genuinely interested in helping me. Sophia was professional and kindhearted. She communicated via emails regularly and made sure I knew the next steps. As a busy mum and student, her help came at the right timing! I was offered an interview at a Law firm I have desired to work for, for years, and was offered a position just a week later. I would highly recommend Sophia. She will certainly go the extra mile for you!

Sophia was fantastic throughout the recruitment process. She was available to chat through anything I was concerned about and didn't hesitate to obtain further information on my behalf when I asked. She went over and above to provide the best service possible and I really felt like she cared. She has even kept in touch to see how things are going now that I am in the role. I wouldn't hesitate to use Sophia again if I was looking for employment.

Sophie assisted in securing my first job as a Paralegal. She was very professional and genuinely cared about my career during the process. Sophie also followed up months later to check in on how I’m doing in my new position. I’m incredibly grateful for her support throughout the process, and truly can’t recommend Advocet enough! Thank you again!
