We take pride in all of our recruiters here at Workbridge Boston and we like to recognize them once in a while! This week our recruiter spotlight shines its light on Andrea Sullivan, a member of our Open Source team. Every day Andrea comes into the office and helps Web Developers and Engineers find their dream job.
A graduate of UMass Amherst, Andrea started at Workbridge Boston in June of 2012. A social person by nature, Andrea's people skills help her relate to job-seekers and hiring managers to find the perfect fit for open positions. She loves having the chance to help people find new opportunities.
"There's nothing like walking out of the office after a long day and knowing that you positively impacted someone's life in one way or another. That's when all the hard work pays off."
When Andrea is taking a break from all-star recruiting, she can be found spending time with friends and family.

With so many different recruitment agencies out there, we want to show you how Workbridge Associates differentiates itself to help you find a job. How #workbridgeworks if you will.
What makes us so different is that all of our recruiters are a part of a team. Here at Workbridge Boston, we have an Open Source team, a .NET team, and a Network Infrastructure team. These recruiters use their individual resources while working together to find you the perfect career.
When you walk into our office we want you to feel like you can talk to us openly about what you want and don’t want out of a job opportunity. During your visit, you meet with each and every individual in that team so that they can get to know you, and at the same time you can get to know them. This way, we have a good sense as to who you are and what you are looking for in hopes that we can form a relationship and find you the perfect opportunity to continue your tech career.
We really are more than just a recruiting firm, we are tech enthusiasts who love to socialize with others like us and find perfect job opportunities for those who want and need them.
So if you are in the market for a new job or just a fellow tech enthusiast, stop by or give us a call! We would love to meet you and help out with your job search.

As a result of Hurricane Sandy, many companies and businesses in the NYC tech community were displaced due to flooding as well as issues with equipment due to the severe storm. In fact, such was the case for one of our clients. Upon hearing about the loss of their work space, Workbridge New York opened its doors to lend a helping hand.
We welcomed three of their contractor employees, all of which we placed with the company, into our space for the past few weeks and turned our office into a co-working space for our recruiters, staff and these three contractors.
As we got to know each of them a little better, the story of one contractor stood out the most. His display of courage, determination and positive attitude gave such inspiration to our recruiters and staff.
In August 2012, Drew Sussberg placed Matt in a contract to hire position. Upon accepting this position Matt was determined to show that he was an asset to the company and worth keeping. However, on October 29th, Matt faced a devastating situation that many of us couldn't imagine going through.
As he explained to our Marketing Specialist, his home in Broad Channel, Queens "was almost completely submerged in the storm surge. At least 6 feet of water was in my house and in the house of my extended family who live fairly close by."
Thankfully he and his friends and family, made it out alive. Currently, Matt is residing in the Glendale area of Queens with 8 other family members until their aid arrives. In early December, Matt received great news from the company he was doing contract work for; they had extended him an offer of full time employment and to work at their headquarters in Maryland. Matt described this news as being "like the sound of angels coming to my rescue. Not only have I finally secured myself with work that is both fulfilling and well compensating, but I also get to be in Maryland, where I met the woman of my dreams and my heart."
It is our pleasure to congratulate Matthew on his advancement and wish him all the best in his new full time position and life! We're rooting for you!
"My independence, my love and my life are now literally days from being secured and firmly within the palm of my hand, and none of this would have been possible were it not for Workbridge Associates. Even when I had given up the fight and thought that work was just impossible to secure in this day and age, they never gave up on me." -Matthew G.
The holiday season is one filled with friends, family, and reflection on the past year. Here at Workbridge Associates, we have a lot to happy about. It's been a great year, one of our best, in fact!
We've placed a record amount of job seekers with new companies, expanded our national staff, and created a successful new event series that help provide a forum for our technologists to come, learn and network!
We would just like to thank all of the businesses that have worked with us in 2012. Your patronage has helped us find opportunities for all of the talented technologists we work with day in and day out. It truly has been an honor to be a part of building your business!
Looking for the perfect gift for the techies in your life?
Workbridge Silicon Valley has some unique gift ideas any techie can appreciate...
(Workbridge is no way affiliated with the sites in this post)
Jewelry is a classic gift for a close friend or significant other, but why buy another heart-shaped pendant when you can send a more personal message? This QR Code Necklace allows you to create your own unique message that can be read using a QR scanning app.
Not a necklace person? That’s cool. Check out these Ethernet Rings. This Cat5 and Ethernet jack set are a perfect match - just like you and your special someone.
Do you have a fashionista in your life? Get them an awesome accessory like these Touchscreen Gloves. They’ll be stylish and warm while texting on their phone, rocking out on their iPod, reading on their favorite e-reader or playing on their iPad.
For the ultimate party pal, there’s an iPhone Case with a Bottle Opener. The party can’t get started without one!
Nice Goldie, Nibbles, and Gulp Cable Keeper make great stocking stuffers. Who doesn’t hate a tangled mess of cords? These cable keepers will store your chargers neatly and will look great doing it!
Then there’s the AViiQ Charging Station. This is a great gift for the frequent traveler or anyone with too many electronic devices (so EVERYONE). Rather than scouring your home, hotel, or airport for an outlet, put everything in this charging station to charge at the same time. Convenient, right?
Another great gift option is the ORA Ultimate Sound System. The ORA system is an 8 speaker sound system that attaches to your iPad to create a “surround sound” effect. This is a great option for gamers and movie lovers, who want to immerse themselves in the experience.
For the chef in the family, there are Chef Sleeves and Stands to protect your iPad during holiday cooking and baking. Attach your tablet to the cutting board to read and chop at the same time. Or get the sleeve and stand to prop you iPad up and protect it from flying projectiles, like flour and water droplets.
We hope you love these gift ideas, we thought they were pretty cool. Do you have any other awesome gift ideas for the techie's in your life? We would love to hear about them, comment below!

Eric (seen below) is a job seeker recently placed by Marialice at Workbridge Philadelphia.
Eric had worked in the IT field years ago, but eventually became burned out and decided to make a major life change, becoming a tattoo artist. (Talk about a career transition!)
Recently, he'd been considering getting back into the programming world, and figured the best way to do that would be to teach himself one of the newest programming languages. So that's what he did! He taught himself Ruby, contacted Workbridge, and the rest is history.
Marialice set him up on an interview with a great company, he killed it, and they offered him an awesome position a few days later.
We couldn't be happier for him!
