“Hi Anthony, I went for an interview last week Tuesday and got a job offer today as a Digital Project Manager. OMG!!! I am so glad to have made the decision to start with Cedar Pro 4 months ago. The recruitment manager said I was very prepared, well-spoken and everything showed how great an asset I will be to the company. They have already contacted your office for reference. Please help me resolve this asap. Thank you for creating such an amazing platform and an ever so supportive environment, it really works Thanks you so much Anthony!”

I have Just Secured A Digital
Project Manager Role
Good morning Anthony I just got a new role as digital business Analyst. How do I get Cedar Design to provide me with reference? Which email address should I give to them for that. They said my interview was amazing and clear. It was an hour and a half long-hour case study on how I would go about researching and communicating data-centred justification for the new digital product the company wants to develop. It was very intense but they were surprised on how much detail and confidence I had in making my case. Please keep me anonymous on all platforms as I am still going through security checks. Thanks.
I Got a New Role as Digital
Business Analyst
“Hello Anthony, I am happy to tell you that after months on training and practice, I am officially employed as a PMO/analyst. I am so grateful to you for creating such an environment of faith and possibility. Literally this is so good, everybody should know about it. I was so calm and confident throughout the entire interview. I don’t remember being so sure of myself in an interview. Thank you Anthony!”
