Personalized and Expert Recruiting

At VanderHouwen, we combine our mission to make staffing more personal and successful with years of experience working in each of the industries that we serve. Our comprehensive vetting process applies to both candidates and organizations, ensuring we match top talent with highly desirable positions. Not only are we one of the most respected and established recruiting agencies in the Pacific Northwest, but we pride ourselves on building long-term strategic relationships with our clients.


VanderHouwen truly gave me a unique experience in the recruiting process. Most of the big recruiter names in Portland would not take me on as a client due to my salary and position expectations. The Recruiter made it clear she would work with me on a monthly basis to place me where I wanted, even if it was going to be a year long process. The persistence on her end to fulfill my needs, before the need to fulfill a quick commission, was commendable and honorable. At the end of the day, I received the permanent placement that I had been hoping to find. I would recommend VanderHouwen to anyone looking for permanent placement with a reputable company.

Accounting Manager

VanderHouwen has been a great recruiter and has gone beyond my expectations. They have kept in contact with my potential employer and followed up with me after each interview. Unlike many others, they don’t set you up and leave but follows you through each step of the process. There are not enough words to express my gratitude for the efforts they have put into helping me find a career. Although my job hunt is over, I will seek VanderHouwen out when I am ready to search again.

Solutions Architect

I really appreciate the whole team from VanderHouwen. You guys have made it a super positive transition from San Diego to Portland, and I look forward to keeping in touch with you in the future.

Andrew S.
Business Analyst

I wanted to say a HUGE thank you to my Recruiter for her amazing and swift effort she has put into finding me a great opportunity for my early career, which is now my current employer. She asked the right questions and got to know my personality during our phone interview to find me the best possible fit and responded respectfully and promptly as we reached the onboarding process. I couldn’t have asked for a better recruiter! I would team up with VanderHouwen again for my future career needs.

Julia S.
Administrative Assistant

I was contacted about a new position and was hired by the new company within just a few weeks.  This is a very fast turnaround time in today’s job market.  I was not looking for a new position, as I was still happy in my old job.  However, VanderHouwen brought the perfect position to me.  The new role combined all of my previous industry and product experiences.  The new company ended up being even better than my old company.  They were extremely quick to respond to any questions that I had, and did a great job counseling me through the difficult decision to leave a good job for a better job.  You can tell that the recruiters at VanderHouwen do their research on companies and candidates, and they only match someone to a new job when they are confident that it is a perfect fit.  I have recommended several colleagues to VanderHouwen and I will continue to do so.
