Eric Thayer

Senior Architect

Scott was able to provide high quality leads for new opportunities to pursue. He kept on top of the process and kept it moving through the offer stage. Also, he was great about not sending out contact info without confirming that I was in agreement that we should proceed. So no bad surprises.

“Scott is one of the best recruiters that I have worked with. He always has interesting opportunities that match not only my skill set, but also the intangibles that I am looking for in a position. He never pressures, and knows how to take no for an answer. He’s also an excellent negotiator. He most definitely negotiated a better deal for me than I would have been able to myself. I recommend Scott without hesitation.” April 4, 2008
Susan Jacobs

“Call me a cynic, but in my experience, most recruiters severely overstate their abilities and the quality of their contacts. I have to admit that I had a fair bit of apprehension when I engaged with Scott for that reason. Additionally, my job search was more casual as I wasn’t even sure if I wanted another job or whether I wanted to start up another company. So, I didn’t need someone pressuring me into exclusivity contracts and endless paperwork. Fortunately, there was none of that; there was a gentlemen’s agreement in place, which I think is the best kind. Anyway, Scott was quite understanding of my life & career goals and put up with my huge delays in responding to him. He helped shape my expectations and brought filtered opportunities to me. Each company I spoke with was very interesting and I never felt like I was wasting my time. Whereas other recruiters had routinely presented me opportunities that did not match my qualifications. I think the key difference is that Scott has perspective in the software engineer market place, whereas most recruiters have barely working knowledge. I got the distinct feeling that Scott wasn’t just trying to “cash in” on me either, which was a common vibe I received from other recruiters. In the end, Scott helped me find a very exciting opportunity that balanced both my career and life goals and in fairly short order. If somewhere down the road things change for me, he would be the first guy I call. I cannot recommend him enough.” March 21, 2008

Kevin Menard Vice President

“Scott has always pointed me to excellent, highly appropriate opportunities. He gives candid, realistic, well-informed advice, and always lets you know exactly where things stand in the search process. I have great respect for his insight, knowledge of the industry, and integrity. Highly recommended.” March 5, 2008
