  • Workbridge Boston Success Story: Tony

    In the 7th grade, Tony programmed a Microsoft Access Database to manage his baseball card collection and how much each card was worth. Over a decade later, he put his trust in Workbridge Boston to place his talent in the right hands.

    Tony is originally from the Bay Area, where he studied at San Jose State University. In 2010, he came to Boston to work at City Hall doing .NET programming, and then after a year, transitioned into doing Rails and have been loving it ever since.

    Though he can't remember how he came across Workbridge (there's that Workbridge Boston mystery again), he sure is glad he did. In less than three weeks, Steve Vaughan placed him with a company that is transforming the way retailers manage in-store merchandising and marketing-- a company that Tony thinks will allow him to have a career in Rails. Tony explains, “I get to work in doing what I love, which is programming in Ruby on Rails."

    “You guys went right to work immediately and lined up interviews pretty much every day. All of them were interesting positions that all seemed like really rewarding opportunities. It was good, I loved it. Steve’s great, Abby’s great, the companies you guys were hooking me up with were great, it was just awesome all around. And very fast.” -- Tony W.

     

     

  • Kind Words from Someone We ... DIDN'T Place in Boston

    Even though we didn't place him, this candidate was more than happy with us. He wrote to our .NET team:

    Though you guys did not place me, I would like to mention how satisfied I was with your business. I have worked with a few recruiters and placement agencies before, but the team at Workbridge Associates exceeded all my expectations. Your team demonstrated professionalism, energy and results. As Alex promised during my first visit to your office, I felt like working with multiple efficient placement agencies. That was just amazing!

    I would like to keep you guys in my professional network. Be certain that Workbridge is the first placement agency I would recommend in the New England area to anyone seeking for Software Engineering positions.

     

    My regards to the entire team.

    These are often the best kind of reviews we get from candidates. Why? It's more than obvious that someone who gets placed will likely be pleased with our services, but for someone who didn't find the right job to go ahead and say that we were the best-- that sure says something.

    It exemplifies the way that, here at Workbridge, we give our all to each and every candidate we've got.

     

  • Boston Success Story: Jamie Michalski

    Jamie Michalski is a man of many hats, but here at Workbridge Boston, we think the three coolest are developer, DJ, and recruiter Scott Lobdell’s first placement.

    (Scott, left, and Jamie, right)

    Jamie moved to Boston from Amesbury, MA, graduated from Boston University in ’05, and has been working in Quality Assurance ever since. Recently, he began to explore the development side of things. When he decided to continue pursuing development, he came to Workbridge.

    Over the past twelve years, Jamie has gone by the alias “DJ Die Young” by night—something he’s kept somewhat of a secret from his employers until he was named “Boston’s Best DJ” by the Improper Bostonian. Twice.  

    Scott Lobdell, a fairly new recruiter and electronic music enthusiast, was more than happy to work with Jamie. “Scott was highly responsive and kept me completely informed about the process. He was incredibly friendly and never made me feel pressured,” says Jamie.

    Scott placed Jamie with a global water, environment, transportation, energy and facilities firm, where he felt Jamie would be a fantastic fit. Jamie says he’s excited to continue becoming experienced in this field, and to be working for such a prestigious global company with “a small but intelligent team of developers.”

    “Workbridge was professional when it came to the hiring process. Everyone was laid back and made you feel comfortable with working with them.”

    – Jamie Michalski

  • Boston Success Story: Evan

     

    When we saw that Evan Davis’s resume included “grilled meat,” we knew we had to place him somewhere awesome that would suit him just right.

    Evan and his recruiter Abby Rose

    A mid-westerner, Evan’s gone from his native Wisconsin to Boston and from product support to agency. While he’s “learned a ton from each experience,” he thinks he’s finally found the perfect fit thanks to Workbridge Boston!

    Referred to Workbridge by past candidates, Evan says we can really give ourselves a pat on the back. As soon as recruiter Abby Rose told him about the job opportunity, he explains, “I knew this was what I was going to do. I think we both knew right away this was going to happen.”

    Evan is now officially the new Senior Engineer at an amazing start-up, which provides high-quality educational content to students for free.  He can’t wait to get started there, where he says “Within ten minutes of talking to the CTO on the phone, [the deal] was sealed.”

     “This is the first recruiter that’s actually seemed like they understand what I do and what I want to do.” – Evan
