“Samantha is "hands down" the best Information Security recruiter I have had the pleasure of working with. I don't know what type of screening process she uses, but her results are exceptional. One thing about Samantha is she does her homework. She learns the interviewer likes and dislikes while at the same time understanding that most hiring managers, especially in Information Security, do not have much time to be able to spend with a recruiter. Samantha and Stanton House only specialize in Cybersecurity recruitment and it shows by the candidates they bring to the table."
