Testimonial

"Joining Pulse has been my best career move to date. I set my sights high and, not to be daunted, the team at pulse did everything in their power to help my (somewhat ‘overambitious’) dream become a reality. Thanks to their dedication to my cause and their unwavering support, I have landed my dream job at Saatchi & Saatchi and couldn't be happier. I couldn't have done it without them and would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the team for all their help in getting me here.."
