  • Jonna was such a huge asset in helping me get a new job. She took the time to meet with me and really hear my situation and understand my concerns over leaving a job I loved for just any opportunity. She was patient and understanding while I contemplated the job offer I eventually accepted. What was a real pleasure was her compassion in really making me feel like she worked for me - not the companies who are seeking applicants. If you're looking for someone to really be your advocate, I highly recommend Jonna.
