This week we’d like to introduce you to CLAUDIA EL AMRANI.

What is your current position?
Senior Recruiter/Mentor at Creative Solutions Services, LLC.

What are the last three companies you’ve worked with or for?

What are your favorite websites/blogs to read?
All things Tech/Internet Marketing/Social Media related. LOVE DevBISTRO, Meetup, TechCrunch, GitHub, and Mashable to name a few of my top faves.

What was most exciting to you about the chance to participate in our panel, Become an Interview Ninja?
I am so passionate about recruiting. I have been mentoring entry level candidates that come out of college unsure of what to expect in an interview and how to handle tough questions. I support this group’s tremendous efforts in helping many that don’t know what to do or where to look for help. Creative Solutions Services’ iPhone application “Talent Tap” will be released soon and will help to support entry level candidates.

What is your funniest interview story?
I once had a candidate excuse themselves to go to the restroom in the middle of the interview and come back with a different outfit on. How do you react to that!?! Recently I’m finding that candidates are bringing food and soft drinks into interviews—WRONG!
