While we represent companies, corporations and other organizations in the recruitment of highly skilled and well-qualified candidates, it is important to us that job seekers have the information they need to make the best decision.

Our recruiters review all of the applications received for a posted position. Because we want to ensure a good fit for both the employer and potential employee, only those individuals who meet the specific criteria requested by our client will be contacted about the opportunity. Applicants who are not selected should know, however, that their contact information will remain in our extensive database, and future contact may occur should a suitable position become available.
