“I have worked with Momentum twice, and both times I have been extremely happy. The Team at Momentum went the extra mile for me during a very difficult time, after I lost a job very suddenly and unexpectedly. I had several really good interviews lined up and they communicated with me every step of the way. Although I hope that I don’t need to look for another job again for a long time, if I do, I will call Momentum.”
