Amir has been really helpful throughout the entire process. He organized the interview process very efficiently so I could easily manage my interview schedules. All my questions were quickly answered and it made me really comfortable. When I finally got an offer, there were some issues with the letter, but Amir actively communicated with the company managers and made sure everything was ready when I entered the US. I really appreciate all his endeavor for my interview.

Amir is the only recruiter I worked with. This is coming from someone who had his inbox filled with recruiter messages and was a part of the Andreessen Horowitz talent network, meaning I had introductions and interviews with the hottest startups in the Silicon Valley. Even though I had multiple offers after a month of job searching, the opportunity Amir introduced me to has proven to be the winning horse. He communicated everything I wanted on my behalf, like he was my own personal agent. As a Canadian, I was a bit worried about discussing a TN Visa with my potential employer but he handled it smoothly and had me working ASAP. If you want to work with a someone who understands the game, work with Amir. If you just want a dead end job at Cisco, put your resume on dice.com.

I sent Amir my resume and just two days later I had an interview with a startup. I was amazed. He not only walked me through the entire TN1 process from start to finish, but also helped me update my resume to reflect my work experience in the best way possible. In the end, he got the job I wanted, in the city I wanted, and the salary I wanted. Need I say more? This guy is a recruitment wizard. Highly recommend!
