Boston's Rockstar Recruiters | Q3 2013

 
Six continues to be the magic number.
You need Six to make The List -- The Boston Rockstar Recruiter list.

Boston's Top 100 Technology Recruiters


In the fall of 2012 Beantown Web asked the question, "Who are Boston's Rockstar Recruiters?"
  Welcome to the fourth installment of The List.


To begin the quest, Beantown Web identified more than 340 technology recruiters via LinkedIn.  Most are located in the Boston area.  Some are located in New Hampshire and Rhode Island and conduct a significant amount of business in the Boston area.

Beantown Web then turned to LinkedIn to identify customer satisfaction scores.  In particular, how many people were willing to provide a public recommendation for that recruiter?

Rock 'n Rollers have platinum singles and albums.  Michael Jordan has championship rings.  The rest of us mere mortals have to make due with recommendations.

The market for Rockstar Recruiters remains stable.  In order for a recruiter to make the inaugural Boston Rockstar Recruiter List a mere three LinkedIn recommendations was enough to merit Rockstar status.  Then, the bar was raised to five.  Then, six.  The bar remains at six recommendations for the second quarter in a row.

Only three out to 10 technology recruiters in the Boston metro area have earned Boston Rockstar Recruiter status with at least six LinkedIn recommendations.

Boston's Top 10 Technology Recruiters


Boston's Top 10 Rockstar Recruiters play to packed houses and receive standing ovations.  The best in the biz have received at least 33 Rockommendations from adoring fans.


Here are the Top 10 Boston Rockstar Recruiters for the third quarter of 2013 [number of LinkedIn recommendations received]:
  1. Scott Dunlop [96] -- The Bivium Group
  2. John VanderSande [62] -- WinterWyman

Top 10 in Assists


Some players are valuable because they score a lot of points.  Others pass the ball effectively.  This quarter a new list is being introduced that ranks "assists."  It answers the following:

"Of the recruiters listed in the Top 100, who are the most generous in offering recommendations to others?"
The Top 10 most generous Boston Rockstar Recruiters for the third quarter [number of LinkedIn recommendations given]:
