Boston's Rockstar Recruiters | Q1 2013

All hail The Year of The Rockstar.

Companies idolize Rockstars.

Managers cherish Rockstars.

Recruiters profit from Rockstars.

Everyone wants to meet a Rockstar!

If you currently play in a garage band, but aspire to become a Rockstar, you should begin networking with Rockstar companies, Rockstar managers and Rockstar recruiters.

Beantown Web asked the question, "Who are Boston's Rockstar Recruiters?"

Boston's Top 100 Technology Recruiters

To begin the quest, Beantown Web identified more than 250 technology recruiters via LinkedIn.  Most are located in the Boston area.  Some are located in New Hampshire and Rhode Island and do 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 gold albums.  Mere mortals have to make due with Recommendations.

The market for Rockstar Recruiters is heating up.  In order for a recruiter to make the Boston Rockstar Recruiter List for the first quarter they had to garner at least five LinkedIn Recommendations.  Last quarter, a mere three Recommendations was enough to merit Rockstar status.
