Client Testimonials

I had the pleasure of working with VanderHouwen on a number of technical placements. As an HR Manager, I have worked with many recruiters over the course of my career. VanderHouwen is at the top of my list and the one I called for the hard to fill openings. They have a grasp on the technical aspects of the position, and quickly matches candidates with the opening. They take the time to meet in person with the company and understand the business. This allows them to make a difference in helping the company hire the right person not only from a technical point of view but also a cultural point of view. I highly recommend VanderHouwen.

HR Manager

We have a very difficult position to fill in our Portland, OR facility. Finding an experienced Fastener Engineer is like looking for a needle in a haystack. Despite our best efforts to find qualified candidates using other sources, two Fastener Engineer positions had been open for over a year, however, after enlisting the help of VanderHouwen, they were able to supply a strong flow of qualified candidates. I am happy to say that within a short period of time, we were able to fill both Fastener Engineer positions through VanderHouwen and we are very happy with the work of our new hires!
