Our Industry Expertise Makes a Difference

A Targeted Approach

Howard Lee & Associates has an impressive track record of long-term placements with a wide variety of international software and technology companies. We succeed because we know that people are more than their resume. Attracting the right talent is our specialty. Our targeted approach streamlines the recruiting process for your organization.

A Focused Approach

We focus attention not only on the skills and qualifications of applicants but on the motivation and the chemistry of the prospective candidate with the organization for which we’re recruiting. This unique approach filters out candidates who may look good on paper but who, in reality, are less than an ideal fit.

What We Can Do For Your Company

We adjust your recruitment processes to align them with current trends and with the top 10% candidates’ habits and communication styles. We have put an end to time-wasting, traditional methods of recruiting.

Your Problem

Reaching out to candidates via LinkedIn keyword searches isn’t viable when that method earns a response rate of at best 8-12%.

Our solution:

We have a fluid database of over 85,000 top software and technology professionals that we can reach out to directly as well as our 6-touch, fully automated marketing system that enables us to reach top candidates immediately.

Your Problem

You are finding a large number of candidates but many are not responding to you and the ones who do are either underqualified or under motivated.

Our solution:

Our CEO speaks with every final candidate before presenting them to you. We ensure that each person presented to you has the skills, background, motivations and goals that will fit your needs and those of your organization.
