“It was a very interesting process, and I appreciate the support I received throughout.  After going through this for the first time, I understand better the value of a third party search firm to facilitate selection and communication for the team and candidates.  I think it can help smooth out the emotional roller coaster for candidates and probably helps prevent candidates from sending crazy emails to the team! “
