Practice Areas

SkyWater’s practice areas are each led by highly-experienced executive recruiters who constantly screen, interview and network with top professionals and executives within their specialty.


We are no strangers to the construction, architecture, and engineering fields. Our specialized team comes with an extensive network of industry professionals who help clients gain access to the best in the industry.

What We Hear From Our Clients:

  • We’re simply having trouble finding people. With the shortage of qualified professionals in the market place, we don’t know where to look to find qualified candidates.
  • We have a professional within our organization that is leaving or retiring. We do not have the time or the resources to professionally train within. We’d like to find someone who can hit the ground running with similar experiences to alleviate our workload and responsibilities.
  • Growth is exciting but difficult. We’ve outgrown our current organizational structure and as we have an idea of the type of individual we are seeking, we really need help pinpointing professionals with the expertise to help with our decision-making.

Why Skywater?

  • We have the network, database, and connections to help pinpoint passive and active candidates to shortcut your search. We work 24/7 while you continue to focus on your business. As the market tightens, our team hones in on targeted-specific professionals who cannot only do the job but continue for future success as your organization grows.
  • Unexpected planning is tough, especially when someone leaves or is about to retire. SkyWater has over 35 in-house recruiters with decades of experience from all-levels of filled placements from entry-level to transitional owners. Depending upon the type of position, we have the horsepower to present candidates in a 2-week turnaround to reduce transitional times and workplace gaps.
  • Different times call for different measures. From small, medium to large corporate-scaled companies we can consult on various growth models, personality behaviors and organizational structures to ensure your company is geared for its next level of success.

We’ll find, vet, and secure technical, construction, architectural and engineering talent with the skill set you’re looking for – but we won’t overwhelm you with a multitude of candidates. You’ll only see your best choices based on your specific requirements and company culture. Our goal is to make the recruiting and hiring process more focused, efficient, and effective. We help you start with your short list. To talk more about the roles within your organization that need filling, give us a call at 952-767-9000 or submit your information right on this page.

“This is the 3-4 time I have worked with Ben and I can honestly say I would not want to work with anyone else for PM / Construction candidates. He spends the time to find the right people and does a great job finishing the hire with me once we have decided we want to move forward. He is the perfect blend of being proactive but not pushy. He will continue to be our guy when we need to use recruiters for filing roles!”
