"I dealt with Samantha from my first encounter with Shoosmiths at an open evening and through the application process for my vacation placement and training contact. Throughout this time she was very helpful and friendly which made the process feel a lot easier and always promptly answered any queries that I had. It was a refreshing change to meet a graduate recruitment manager who was approachable and who made me feel at ease when talking to them. It really did make a difference in how I felt about the firm and encouraged me throughout the whole process. I happily continue to cross paths with Samantha today regarding my future training contract at Shoosmiths."
