Note: Ive placed several IT pros with this client over the past several years and can talk in depth about the company, the culture and management.
What two other IT professionals we have placed with this company have to say:
"Niche Technologists placed me in a great company, one of those rare companies who really do care about their employees. I'm working with most of the senior IT management on a weekly basis which is great . . . all are very well-heeled in their professions. My manager is a great boss and funny. I could not ask for a better environment in which to be."
It was a pleasure dealing with Niche Technologists and Dan Barber during my job search. I have been working in the IT field for about 8 years now and there are very few recruiting firms like Niche who not only know exactly what the job requires, but are also able to give insight into the people and culture when going for interviews.
I also found Dan Barber to be an honest and down- to-earth person - never hyping the job, just giving the plain and simple facts along with tips for the particular role I was looking for. Needless to say, I found a great position in an excellent Fortune 100 company thanks to Niche Tech."
