Recruiters are very informative and caring. They help you through every stage of the process, including suggestions for interviews, catch-ups, and what to expect next from a particular employer. They are more than happy to answer questions when you need (even having replies after hours, which was a surprise). I was contacted by R+R for a role, instead of me having to contact them, and resulted in a new position that I think I will be satisfied with for a long time. Thanks R+R, and Lauren!
