The first interaction I had with Arrows Group (Alex Lonergan), made me realize that it’s just not any job agency, but it’s a A-class firm with highly skilled individuals who know the job requirement no lesser to a technical panel. I was given unmatched support and surprisingly, it took only a week for me to get an offer for a permanent role.
