I have just signed a job offer with a great company thanks to Black Pen who were the appointed recruiter. I went through a series of interviews with my new employer and throughout the interview process, the personnel at Black Pen promptly kept me informed of the next steps. Moreover, they went as far as availing online links to information/news regarding the Company (employer), the interviewers all which helped me when preparing for the interviews, ultimately resulting to a smooth, easy and exiting interview process. It was refreshing to note how Black Pen (the recruiter) was always looking out for both my needs (the Interviewee) and those of the Employer. Thank you so much for making my interview process enjoyable and a success!
