  • Welcome! <br />
  • The fact is, every industry has an IT department ... There are often times when industry knowledge is a foundation of what companies are looking for first, then IT skills. <br />
  • With such a long foreseeable growth, predictions too are that there will be a shortage of people to fill very lucrative positions. <br />
  • We are very familiar with the hiring and interview processes with top international companies to offer accurate guidance on how to help you perform to their standard, and be a top candidate for consideration. <br /> Many people corner themselves into just one or two career options. After an extensive review of your career history and skills, we show you options on different positions you never considered in the IT Industry. <br /> With proper guidance and a determined candidate, we can help you be ready for a new career very quickly. <br />
  • Our specialty is helping people from where they are now, to guiding them to, and helping them cross over the bridge to where they want to be: A successful, new, satisfying career in the IT Industry. <br />
  • It is a tough market right now and with our rebranding process, we will make you stand out with recruiters to get your information in front of the hiring managers. <br />
  • Our proven steps have guided our past candidates to positions with HSBC, T-Mobile, and Shell. <br />
  • This is what our candidates often wished recruiters would do for them. Unfortunately, it is not within their means. We work with you to determine what your skills are, and mostly, what your likes and dislikes are. Many times, we suggest a career which was never a consideration, then show you how you can achieve it. “We know what you don’t know.” <br />
  • Accreditations or ‘Badges’ are critically important in the IT Industry. With similar backgrounds and experience, companies will always hire the candidate with it, versus without. <br />
  • A strong CV which is keyword rich, aesthetically pleasing, and in European format is essential. In addition, do not be surprised if a non-professional CV is thrown in the bin by a recruiter if it is sloppy. How do you expect to be an IT person if you cannot produce a basic document in Microsoft Word? <br />
  • Upon a rebranded and professional CV, your interview talents must reflect that! <br />
  • It is the recruiters job to put the best of the best forward. We help you be that person. <br />
  • In addition, if when you land in your new position, and in need of guidance until you are comfortable, we can offer services to do that too. <br />
  • This is what dedication can do! <br />
  • When you believe in yourself ... Dedication and motivation will come. <br />
  • Thank you, and we look forward to discussing your needs.  <br />
