The fact that the Head Hunter is specialized in a specific sector accelerates and refines the resource selection. Besides, the Head Hunter as well as the client have a better understanding of the needs, since they communicate in a common language. The Head Hunter becomes an advisor that can generate added value through advice about adequate profiles and structures, and which in regard to the conditions from the point of view of the market, make sense in the searching process.

Fernando Otoya

CEO Siesa

IT Hunters supported us when SIESA started a recruitment process searching for a Commercial Vice-president; in a very short period of time we found our ideal candidate; the process was fast, efficient and confidential. At all times there was very close accompanying, showing a high level of professionalism, commitment and efficacy. After one year of working with the selected Commercial Vice-president, we are happy and convinced that the decision taken was the right one.

Belmer Corrales

My participation in a process with IT Hunters, besides selecting a specific profile for the needs of a client, gave me the tranquility that with their knowledge of the market I was going to be employed by a company for which my skills add value and which will supplement my personal life.

Miguel Ángel Zarzar

General Manager of Telectronic

The speed in the time it took to understand our needs, knowledge of the IT industry, personalized attention and adequate information were important to find what we were looking for.

Juan David Correa Gregory

Candidate

When you are thinking in taking on new challenges in your professional life, new challenges, and somehow re-inventing you, perhaps the most complex part in this process is to find a " trusted advisor ", that understands you, and makes you see your strengths and weaknesses, which will guide you in difficult times and at the same time makes the "perfect match" with what your customer is looking for in an executive. I was able to see for myself all this dynamic and guidance when IT Hunters and Carolina Toro accompanied me in this stage of change. I am very thankful for having a "trusted advisor" as Carolina.
