I am happy to recommend Pooya as one of the best recruiters that I have worked with. He has great listening and communication skills, makes sure to understands your goals, pays attention to details and most importantly he is a target-driven recruiter. A few years ago I contacted him with a very specific target in mind: mobile advertising design position for big scale high tech companies. Pooya and his team were able to set up several interviews within only 10 days and finally they set up an interview with Google and right now I'm writing this recommendation letter from the Googleplex. Thank you, Pooya!

To have your dream career nowadays, you are not just have to be a good fit, talented and hard-worker, but you have to have that type of magic word that can make you shine among the crowds.

Being an immigrant engineer to the USA, my experience with Pooya was different from many other recruiting agencies that I have dealt with before,being very friendly ,professional and the strong connections he has with many big reputable companies are not just his only strong features, but the ability to find your strongest qualities and match them with the best position which makes you the best match in the eye of your employer is something you won't find anywhere else, beside that it is worthy to mention the continuous support that I have had since I got hired , to make sure that I am satisfied and doing well in my job,and the continuous guidance of how to improve my self and abilities in work environment to have a better opportunities in the future .

I consider myself a lucky guy to work for a well known name consulting engineering corporation in San Francisco after a relatively short period of time from my immigration to the USA, and to know Pooya who is a friend who will help me in achieving my future career goals.

It's been great working with Pooya and his team. They helped us out this year in hiring administrative and Sales roles for our team. We have been very impressed with their level of professionalism and quality of service. I highly recommend them.
