What Our Clients Say About Us

Dear Royce,

I wanted to take this opportunity to convey my appreciation for the fine effort you expended in finding (our company) the best possible candidate for the Hydraulics Engineer position that we required. Your ability to ask the right questions of both (our company) and the candidate helped to ensure a good match for all. The candidate you found us has worked out better than we could have hoped for. He has been with us a little over one year now. He is now a shareholder and is building our water resources department to where I expect it will be a major source of revenue in the future.

I have worked with a number of recruiters over the past 15 years, Royce, and I can honestly say that your work on finding us this candidate is the best I have seen. I hope that you have continued success with us and other firms.

Very truly yours,

(Company Vice-President)

 
I’ve worked with many recruiters over the years, but I’ve never had as much detail on the candidate as you provided. I’m impressed with your approach and dedication to finding a fit for candidate and the employer. Thank you!

(COO, Top ENR 400 firm)
 

What Our Candidates Say About Us

Instead of exhausting myself trying to run down every job lead I encountered from the myriad sources I was regularly checking, I needed to mentally divest myself from the task and place it in the hands of an expert. I needed to find somebody—one person—who was willing to sit and listen to my story and get to know me, my abilities, and my ambitions. I needed someone to see me as a person with differentiable qualities to market…and not simply as a resume in standard Arial 10-point font.

In November of last year, a former boss of mine put me in contact with Royce at Engineering Journeys. He’s a different kind of recruiter. Certainly, he has an extensive network of hiring managers at multidisciplinary firms all over the nation which is not always the case in the recruiting business. What separates Royce from the rest of the field is his ability to connect with people. He loves to talk and to listen, and over the course of a conversation he will absorb every detail that you throw at him. As a result, he has a comprehensive knowledge and personal relationship with each of his contacts and candidates.

Royce spent a lot of time working with me prior to marketing me to his clients. Rather than simply trusting a resume, Royce had me prepare a number of documents that better illustrated my abilities and fleshed out the uniqueness of my skill set. He asked for my references upfront, and contacted them before presenting me as a candidate. He wanted to make sure I was a fit for him and his practice, as well as determine which of his clients I would mesh well with before creating any formal links between us.

Roughly three (3) weeks after he and I finished these preliminary activities, Royce secured an interview for me here in Seattle. Three weeks after that, we got the job. I suggest you give him a call and see if he can help you.

Dear Royce,

This is a long overdue thank you note for moving me to “__” Engineering last September. Now that I’ve been at “__” Engineering for eight months, I have a list of reasons to be thankful!

Work has been going very well. I am working on the type of projects that I wanted including hydrologic and hydraulic modeling using the Rational Method, HEC-1, HEC-2 and various other programs. We recently were short-listed for a project … we get to do “the fun part,” engineering design of drop structures and other improvements.

As promised I received a six-month review, and a salary increase at that time. I received a second salary increase when there was a salary review for the whole company. The 9/80 work schedule is excellent, and I enjoy the people that I work with.

So, thank you again, Royce. This has been a terrific improvement for me and I will definitely recommend you when anyone else asks how I found the motivation to move.

One Year Later….
“I’m still loving the job at “__” Engineering! Our department becomes more environmental every day as we have recently hired (key people that have helped me tremendously!)
