So many thanks for such an excellent service.

I am totally shocked at the deluge of responses we have received from that one ad. We have not yet selected anyone, but we sure as hell have a huge selection from which to choose!

Just a short note to let you know we were thrilled with the response to our PR advert.

This is just a quick note to say how impressed we were with the response to our ad for a turbo-hack to join PR Company 72 Point.

I put my CV on HoldTheFrontPage and began getting job offers and things were actually happening. I’ve now got a really good position on a magazine who found me through the site.

I also have my CV listed on a couple of other media sites (free ones) and I’ve had no responses from those at all, so I’m really pleased with the response I’ve had from HoldTheFrontPage.

— Karen Steel

I had too little faith in this – the applications have come pouring in and I need them to stop – can you pull the trainee vacancy ad – is it possible?

Please can you place the advert again? Many thanks. Your site is excellent and the response from job ads is extraordinary.
