“Justin was very professional but also very personable. As one with a long history of interacting with recruiting agencies, I can say that he stands out as one who makes it clear that he is more interested in your career goals than in selling the deal for his own reasons. Most recruiters at other organizations come up short there.”

Andrew G.

“Maren [Brightwing Recruiter] called me right away and sounded very positive and personable on the phone. I felt that I was able to be open and honest with her regarding my needs and wants in my next position and why I was looking for a new position. I’m looking forward to working with her more.”

Carol M.
February 24, 2016

“Based on my interaction with Jamie Altman [Brightwing Recruiter], I would absolutely recommend Brightwing to a friend/colleague. She was very professional. She did her due diligence by asking for more details regarding my career history, salary requirements, and the furthest distance that I would be willing to travel to work. A lot of other technical staffing agents do not ask these questions and don’t seem to care. My impression is that they just seem to want a warm body.”

I have never had recruiters like you and appreciate your passion in helping others in finding a career. From the first phone call with you Jason [Brightwing Recruiter], I felt so comfortable talking  with you and enjoyed all of are conversations. You guys are truly professionals in what you do and I can’t thank you enough for helping me. Darryl [Business Development], I want to say I thought you were very professional when we met before my interview and I appreciate you bringing copies of my resume for me and answering any questions I had prior and after my interview. Jason, you have been great as well keeping me updated and informed of any new news on the job position.

At Brightwing, they rightly choose the positions and applications in such a way that it will be win-win situation for both client and applicant. I feel there is absolute no room for any complaint. Brightwing has supported me a lot during these 2 years. Every time I speak with Kimberly, she is always ready to help with a big smile and her positive attitude keeps me motivated. So much like Kimberly, Kerry and Mike are always a call away and ever ready to be there for you. Brightwing is a great place to be.”

“I had only been searching for slightly under a week, and I was contacted by Brightwing with attractive engineering roles. Though I was contacted by multiple other staffing agencies, I was initially nervous about how they functioned. There were agencies that submitted my resume to companies without my knowledge of the company and/or the specific responsibilities, and there were poor selections presented that showed they had no interest in knowing what I wanted as a career and where/who I would like to work for as a company based on my interests. Brightwing has taken my interest to heart since the first call, and had carefully considered roles to present to me. They would only go forward with submission with my approval after reviewing the job descriptions. Brightwing was fast, exact, and friendly and I believe they really care about their employees. Keep up the great work!”

“Hello Olga: It has been a while since you and I have had an opportunity to converse with each other. As we go about our daily busy lives, I wanted to take the time to thank you for having placed me as a Brightwing Consultant at Microsoft. I absolutely love my work and love the people I work with. The workplace is very professional. You have been absolutely great! First, by contacting me for this position, and second by guiding my transition from my previous employer to my present job. As we go about our daily routines, it is only fair that we remember those individuals/companies to whom I owe my success!
Thank you, Olga!”

“Aaron, I recently accepted a position with one of your clients and wanted to share my experience working with your recruiter Jason Hochstein and Business Unit Managaer Jeff Borra. About a month before the holiday I was contacted by Brightwing for the position I just accepted. Over the last two months your people went far beyond anything I have ever encountered in my professional past with a resource placement company. They were continually updating and returning calls, I was never left hanging or unaware exactly where I stood regarding my employment for your customer. I would like to tell you of how much respect I have for Brightwing. I’m not certain how this was accomplished but it was quite refreshing to be involved with the HR process there. Anyway, I thought you may like some feedback and thank you for the opportunity to be part of your company.”
