    “Comment? In fact, no need to comment for him. His jobs show that how professional he is. He said he could handle this in 7 days. Later he changed offer and said that 3 days are enough. He gave back the project as 100% ready, in just 2 days! Sure, I'm going to hire him again, when I need to. Thanks a lot again, suggesting you all!”
