Testimonials

In my job search I’ve worked with a couple of recruiters and VanderHouwen really stands out in terms of listening and giving me suggestions based on knowledge of the market and profession, and my background. I really appreciate that. If/when I’m looking again (hopefully in a few years!) or when I know someone who’s looking, I will happily refer them to VanderHouwen.

Matt D.
Accountant

VanderHouwen is an amazing talent recruiter; they found me the exact position that I wanted at an incredibly lucrative contract rate. VanderHouwen is always very professional and has always been immediately responsive to any of my concerns. I hope very much to be able to work with them again in the future.

Jason T.
Sr. Web Application Security Engineer

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.

Raymond C.
Solutions Architect

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.

Anson W.
Accounting Manager

This is why I LOVE working with VanderHouwen: it’s not the coffee and lunch dates (although those are nice) — it’s the fact that I am thought of. Over my 25+ years of programming, I have worked with many agencies and none of them have made me feel like I was an actual part of the company. To some, I was an asset – a machine that they would start up or shut down. I don’t remember their names and I know they don’t remember mine. But VanderHouwen? You guys are the BEST.
