For Candidates

Get On Our Radar Screen

We make it a practice to cultivate friends of the firm. That is why we regularly provide senior executives and technologists with career advice in our blog. We believe in helping candidates who’ve worked hard to become the best-of-the-best advance in their careers. Because we pay it forward, we enjoy ongoing relationships with the leading senior executives and technologists in the business.

Full disclosure, we do find it incredibly frustrating that we cannot engage with every deserving candidate the moment they wish to speak with us. There are simply too many candidates and too few of us. We have to manage our time to do what we do well. To lessen the frustration, we have developed a way for you to share your career preferences with us. That information will help us understand what kinds of opportunities are motivating to you so that when we do reach out, it will be for the right kind of opportunity. We hope that this is just the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
