Candidate reactions

"I found the Sales Associate Virtual Job Tryout very, very helpful and even entertaining. It helped me to know exactly what I'm getting myself into, and I was amazed by the clarity of it all. I wished that all applications could be like this, and I am definitely telling my friends about this."

"I enjoyed this application process over any other application I have ever completed. It gave me more of an idea of what the company I am applying for was looking for and if I was a good candidate for the position."

"It was great to be able to get a quick look at the situations I would be dealing with if I am hired for this job. A lot of the situations dealing with customers are similar to what I have to do at my current job. It just made it easier in deciding that this would be a great job for me."
