Sometimes people are not cooperative and may get frustrated but, I overcome this by allowing myself to be better and remind myself that I am helping my candidates understand our process so in the end I can understand what is important to the candidate in their next job.
  9. What is the most important lesson you have learned since graduating college? The most important lesson I have learned is that good things do not come easy. You have to learn that sometimes the hardest moments are the ones that count. It is okay to still be figuring out what you want to do in life and it all takes time. But in the end, it will all be worth it.
