Animation Director at Klang Games

The collaboration with Haptic Recruit was smooth, professional and just all-around coherent. For a job search I would immediately work together with them again. I especially liked the fact, that they listened to all my thoughts and communicated them to the client and vice versa. In addition, you have a good sense of which job posting matches most. Keep up the good work!

Within an extremely busy schedule he snatched me, explained the entire project and studio, got me in an interview and an accepted offer above my requested salary within a week or so all while being the nicest person on earth. What are you waiting for? connect, get recruited by, or hire the man!
