Chief Information Office
I've had the opportunity to work with Josh on both sides of the fence, as both a hiring client and as a candidate. His performance has excelled in each, and his dedication to serving both client and candidate reaches a caliber often not found in the staffing industry. Knowledgeable specifically in staffing and recruiting, Josh also possesses an industry knowledge and wherewithal to satisfy the most discerning client or candidate, across multiple enterprise functional areas.
Director, Consulting Services
I had a great experience working with Hegson. He did an excellent job identifying me for a new opportunity. He kept me in the loop during the entire interview process and I really enjoyed his positive attitude.
I have worked with many recruiters over the years with both hiring staff and seeking employment myself. One of the biggest complaints I have always had about recruiters is that they are terrible in getting back to you with good or bad feedback or if you they don't have anything for you , you end up in that black hole. Josh was the total opposite. I was referred to Josh and his partner from a colleague of mine who knew I was in the job market. From the very beginning he was in constant contact with me even giving me his cell phone number to call him in the evening if I had any questions. I was extremely lucky to get the job , but as it was a small up and coming company so there were a lot of questions .. I have not worked for a small firm before so this was all new territory for me. Josh was great in easing my fears about benefits, etc... and he did not give up until we had all the answers. Once I was here I contacted Josh and his partner for new staff for myself. They were very thorough in their screening of candidates and did not send me anyone who walked through their door. As the manager now and not the candidate this was extremely important to me as I know they were not wasting my time with just anyone. I really enjoy working with Josh.. as far as recruiters go he is the "real deal"
Director of Technology
Brenda is an excellent Technical Recruiting Manager to work with. When she assisted me in getting placed in a company, she worked hard with her business partners because she believed and trusted my technical background and expertise. She is also very knowledgeable in the application development arena so when she speaks to her clients, she knows exactly how she she provide the right contractors to the right positions. I can always trust her in working hard to represent me to any client and I know she goes the extra mile for all of her contractors. It's great working with Brenda and I'm looking forward in our future business endeavors.
