I was faced with an incredible business challenge to hire 8 staff members and completely re-launch a large web site within four months. Jay Berger was recommended to me to help me put together my staff. He took the time to understand the needs of our business and the culture that I wanted to create with staff. He was able to find me staff that exceeded my expectations. He has been one of the best recruiters that I’ve worked with during my career.”
In 2008 I had the pleasure or writing a LinkedIn recommendation about Jay and how much of a pleasure it was working with him, and his firm Paradigm Partners. Now 12 years later, I am once again thrilled to say how easy it is to recommend Jay and Paradigm to friends and colleagues regardless of which side of the hiring transaction they are on.
Jay and his team are exceptional at finding the best people and the best in people across a wide spectrum of industries. Whether it is an analyst, a director, or a c-suite executive, Jay can help refine the role, find the best candidates, and keep the process moving so critical hires occur quickly and efficiently”.
Jay, and the organization he has built, consistently delivers on the identification and evaluation of talent. Over the years I have turned to Jay for advice and direction on a plethora of organizational issues. His industry knowledge, intuitive insight, and candor are evident in all facets of the search process. His ability to partner with clients and drill down to the essence of any situation is truly unique in the search industry.”
Jay and I have worked together since the very earlier days of our careers. He has a broad background in the technology arena, and a deep understanding of staffing and its importance to an organization. I have always viewed him as a partner, not a “vendor” and he is the person I call most often for the tough searches. He makes it his business to understand our business, and then to find us the right talent in order to help grow our business. There’s nobody better!”
I’ve been relying on Jay for over 10 years now in being able to find the best candidates for us. He’s quick to understand the company culture and fits candidates not only based on technical ability, but also on their interpersonal skills.”
“I’m a strong believer that one has to truly love what they do and the company they’re doing it for. Jay gets that and makes sure he’s presenting candidates to us that have a strong desire to make something of themselves given the right opportunity. He’s done this time and time again for us… roughly around 20-25 times over the 10+ years if I’m not mistaken.”
“Also, I value the fact that Jay is very calm and collected. Often, recruiting is fast paced and some recruiters are too quick to throw candidates at you in hopes they get lucky in putting the right person in front of you before another recruiter does. It’s been a pleasure working with Jay for I know he’s never rushing but rather is diligent and respectable of his client’s time by only sending over strong viable candidates.”
I have had the pleasure of working with Jay Berger both as a candidate and a client. As a client, I worked at a small technology startup as the Recruitment Manager, which had just laid off a significant portion of the staff that I originally hired. Jay was not only helpful in getting the effected staff out and interviewing, he showed great compassion in doing so.”
“As a candidate, Jay showed me the utmost professionalism and did the unthinkable by passing me along to a fantastic company, even knowing that there would be little financial reward for him only saying that the long-term relationship is more important than the short-term. I recommend Jay wholeheartedly as your recruitment partner because in Jay, you will have a long-term business partner.”
I have never had a candidate from Paradigm Partners that didn’t make it to the final round! What I love about working with Jay and Paradigm Partners is that they truly partner with you to find the right talent. Jay is exceptional at understanding what we as hiring managers really mean in a job description and is excellent at asking the right questions that help you articulate the exact skills you need and are looking for. He has the uncanny ability of unearthing hidden talent in the job market and presenting candidates that not only meet the technical requirements but ones he knows would be a right fit for the culture. Jay is a genuinely good person and a delight to work with. I highly recommend Paradigm Partners to anyone needing help getting the right talent for their team.”
