Sami’s deep knowledge of both the user experience and recruiting industries was apparent, but remained approachable thanks to Sami’s sense of humor. 


Let’s face it, looking for a job isn’t fun. In fact, it is as close to the opposite of fun as anything could be. But if anyone can make the job search fun it would be Sami Gardner. Highly experienced and knowledgeable in a variety of job markets, and not afraid of telling tough truths when necessary, Sami brings a lightness of touch and empathy that help her clients manage very difficult situations.


I came to Sami with the general impression that my resume stank…and it did. But my experience is actually pretty badass. Sami teased my accomplishments from the noise and helped me create a resume that got me five interviews in one week. Yes, in this job market, five interviews. The impact truly speaks for itself.
