“Cascade Energy was faced with a sudden need to hire several key contributors. These positions called for not only strong leadership and marketing ability, but also specialized technical experience. Janet helped us establish a road map, and determine our needs. Finding suitable candidates was challenging, given our need for top talent, and considering that employees of this caliber can afford to be choosy in selecting their career path. Janet is a master at finding highly talented individuals from unlikely places. Throughout the process, she ensured that the prospective candidates had a genuine interest and cultural alignment in working with us. Janet identified and alerted us to each candidate’s potential problem areas, as well as strengths that weren’t always evident. All our offers were accepted and each hire continues to be a major contributor to our company growth and health.
Janet listens intently and has strong intuitive skills. She prides herself on a personal approach, continuing to fine tune during the process as circumstances change. She’s open to feedback and suggestions. The separation between consultant and company diminished and Janet became an integral part of our company’s efforts. Cascade wouldn’t be where it is today without her help.”
"I would personally like to thank you for your valued recruiting partnership with PECI over the past several years. Your networking efforts have helped PECI hire some of our industry's top talent. These individuals have been instrumental in enhancing PECI's reputation in the market and have collaborated with others to help continue the growth of the organization. I truly appreciate the work and contributions you have made to PECI."
(former President of Advantage Energy Systems) “It is refreshing in today's society to work with an individual who not only talks professionally, but who acts professionally. I was shocked, yet pleased, when Janet shared some limited concerns she had for a candidate whom I was ready to hire. It was obvious to me that Janet was putting my company's wellbeing above her fee. Janet relieved me of the burden of identifying and screening candidates. She allowed me to be able to run and grow my business.”
“I needed help finding high caliber marketing and engineering executives. These individuals needed to have highly specialized backgrounds and were to be critical hires “leading the charge” in establishing Plantronics’ new business presence in Portland. Within a month, Janet Brumbaugh was able to identify and present a slate of outstanding individuals. All candidates had the potential to drive our Company’s success by providing leadership of their respective disciplines. Janet Brumbaugh & Associates was able to act nimbly and quickly in successfully executing a difficult search. Janet Brumbaugh’s firm was not only a pleasure to deal with but far exceeded our expectations with the quality and timeliness of results.”
"I have worked with Janet Brumbaugh as a recruiting agent for my company on
several occasions over the last 10 years. Her primary mission has been the
competitive recruitment of the top revenue performers in our industry. Top
performers in our industry don't need to look for another job and aren't
inclined to spend time discussing employment opportunities directly. Janet's
experience and natural tact allows her to explore the career goals of potential
candidates without disturbing their current employment while determining the basis for future discussions with our company.
Janet is, what I call, an enthusiastic listener. You can literally feel her
anticipation for what you are going to say next. People in competitive
businesses don't normally get to talk to someone like Janet, even though
everybody wishes they could. I think that this the key to opening doors for her.
Janet has also worked very hard to understand our industry which I think is
characteristic of a professional in her business. I would recommend
consideration of her services for any business that cannot wait to develop internal talent to meet their business goals."
"I have observed Janet many times in her interview process more recently as a client and formerly as a peer. She is thorough, ethical, inquisitive yet respectful and insightful. She maintains a commitment to working with quality talent. She is very resourceful in finding and attracting top people. Janet conducts in-depth interviews. She stays actively involved with her client companies and candidates throughout the interview process and follow-up. She has a strong reputation based on integrity and high professional standards."
“Janet was crucial in the development of our organization. Her extensive contact
base and collaborative spirit enabled us to find the key personnel to take us to
the next level. Her Renaissance style facilitated cross functional integration
and cooperation. I would highly recommend her services.”
“I've never met a more thorough recruiter than Janet. She is extremely detail oriented and only makes solid recommendations. I completely trust her.”
“Working with Janet as she guided me through the recruiting process with PECI
was a pleasure. She worked hard to set accurate expectations for both PECI and
myself. She communicated effectively. It was a pleasure working with her.”
