My Recruiting Experience

Experience:
As a professional recruiter with twenty years of experience, I have had the pleasure of recruiting for all types of professionals from Technical to Operations to Finance. During most of my career, the focus has been on the Technology sector; however I now have shifted to focusing on Sales professionals for almost any industry. My services include an intake session with the client, revising job descriptions (if needed), weekly status reports, submission of pre-screened candidates that match at least 85% to 90% of the requirements., strong follow through and honest answers.

Experience:
1996-the year I made a successful transition from the Graphic Arts industry to Human Resources as a Generalist. Shortly after I migrated to full time recruiting. Over the next fifteen plus years I developed and gained the skills of searching, vetting and networking for candidates. The areas that I have been most successful in are; Technology, Operations, and Sales. Given the tough candidate climate, I locate my candidates by picking up the phone and calling as well as social media. (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter) I am not a post and hope recruiter. What make me different from other recruiters is; I don’t just take the job description and run, I ask the questions other recruiters won't ask. T

1996-the year I made a successful transition from the Graphic Arts industry to Human Resources as a Generalist. Shortly after, I migrated to full time recruiting. Over the next fifteen plus years I developed and gained the skills of searching, vetting and networking for candidates. The areas that I have been most successful in are; Technology, Operations, and Sales. Given the tough candidate climate, I locate my candidates by picking up the phone and calling as well as social media. (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter) I am not a post and hope recruiter. What makes me different from other recruiters is; I don’t just take the job description and run, I ask the questions other recruiters won't ask. This methodology allows me to gain a more in depth understanding of the role and expectations resulting in a higher quality of candidate. Two of my most recent placements were a Vice President of Professional Services for a G200 company and a COO of an optical manufacture. Both were done within 30 days. If you have a position whether technical, operations, or sales, let's have a discussion to see if I am the right recruiter for the position.

I worked with Doug at Intuit while I was moving to a new position. My experience was so positive that when I needed to look at hiring some positions at my new company, I didn't think twice to call Doug and see if he could lend a hand. Within a week, all my positions were posted and we were booking phone and in-person interviews. Doug is results driven, but also brings a personable side to the business. He makes sure the company responds correctly and that candidates and the hiring company are on the same page. I would not hesitate to hire Doug again and highly recommend him for any other company (big or small) to acquire new talent

Joshua McGinnis Software Engineer & Technology Generalist, Intuit, 

Doug is a pleasure to work with and a very effective recruiter. Making use of the latest tools for the trade, Doug actively works the professional social networks to find potential candidates to fulfill requirements. Doug's skill in this area coupled with traditional tools allows him to produce "A" candidates for potential hiring. Along with finding solid candidates, Doug also has a terrific communicating ability and is very good at initial screening, beyond that he is also successful at promoting the company and associated opportunity so that good candidates are adrenalized about the potential and eager to take the next steps. I would highly recommend Doug for any recruiting needs and would look forward to the opportunity to work with him again

Jim Danford Director of US Regional Sales, IneoQuest Technologies, 

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Doug to fill our technical positions. He has a great attitude, great communication skills, and is very conscientious. He is very flexible and adapts quickly to other people's working styles. These are usually problems when working with colleagues 3,000 miles away, but Doug was an exception.

Keith Kerlan Senior Software Engineer at Intuit, Intuit, 

Doug Cohen has done a great job here at CIDC. He brought innovative staffing ideas into our company, and filled my most difficult-to-hire technical and managerial positions, and built our their teams. For both candidates and hiring managers, Doug proved to be a good listener and a pleasure to work with. He friendly, soft-sell approach during screenings and interviews presented an excellent impression of our company to prospective employees. Having greatly benefited from Doug's recruiting efforts, I'd look forward to working with him in the future, and would strongly recommend him to anyone seeking a highly-productive, very personable staffing pro

Ed Kershenbaum CIO at KVH Industries, fomerly with CIDC, 

I submitted my resume to the firm where Doug works. Doug called me and his frank comments caught my attention. Understand, it has been reviewed by many other professionals without any mention about its construction and thus potential ineffectiveness. What I really appreciated was his offer to assist me in a total rewrite of my resume. The end result is that since I have republished by resume online, I have seen a dramatic increase in interest in me. I heartily thank Doug for helping me!

Edward Orr Enterprise Technical Support Advisor, Dell EqualLogic, 

I would highly recommend Doug Cohen. We have had and continue to have a very fine working relationship with Doug. He is an astute professional whose hard work, loyalty, and professionalism in today's market place of " human capital" is quite refreshing. Doug is a man of "integrity" and for that we are most grateful.

Beverly A. Kahn Founder/President, New Dimensions in Technology, Inc, 

I worked with Doug at B&M associates and have stayed in touch with him over the years since. He was very strong in relationship building and development of potential candidates. His follow up was very thorough and I'm sure it is very strong to this day. He is hard worker that's not afraid to pick up the phone. He has a very even keeled demeanor about him.
