I have had a great experience with MBK and working with Spencer Knibbe and his team. Once I was hired, Spencer stayed in touch and did weekly check-ins, making sure I had a good experience with being on-boarded with the new company. I would work with MBK again in the future.

I was glad I was able to connect with Spencer… He gave me my dream job. He lowered my anxiety… He did a good job of figuring out what I was good at and highlighted that.
