Director of Development Engineering – Electronic Manufacturing

I’ve been working with recruiting services to hire engineers for about 15 years now.  I get cold calls from new recruiters all the time but have found very few worth my time.  There’s only one fellow I have been working with long term.  The reasons for that come down to personal follow up, clear understanding of the needs, and obvious course correction based on feedback.  Zach is the only recruiter I’ve worked with in the past 10 years that has come close to my benchmark guy.


Zach wasn’t pushy.  He took the time to ask me good questions about my needs & expectations, going much deeper than typical recruiters.  His follow up wasn’t too frequent nor was it scarce.  He listened to my feedback about first candidates and quickly refined his search.  I never dreaded a call from Zach, wondering what smoke he’d blow my way next.  He even handled some awkward interactions with our brand new controller and our HR generalist with class.  I struggle to find ways to suggest improvement for Zach or the Skywater approach.


You’ve got a good formula going and Zach’s approach really jives with me.  He has earned a spot on my benchmark list.  I look forward to another opportunity to work with Zach and Skywater.


BTW, we are three days into our first week with our new hire and I’m super happy.
