"Our first communication started on LinkedIn. I got a job offer from Henny van Gemert. I told him that I was interested but needed more specific information about the job. After that the first job interview was arranged. Henny personally advised me and helped me by reviewing the assignment and gave tips for the second round. Until the third and final round, he personally advised me so I was well prepared for all the interviews. I would like to thank Search It Recruitment for the personal assistance. Their tips helped me through each round of the interviews."
Emal Kamal - Cost Engineering Consultant - Candidate
"I had a great experience with Search It Recruitment while searching a new role in my career. Joost and Ernst are really professional during all steps in hiring. They analysed the company profile and job description with me before sending my curriculum and I was always kept posted about any update. They really did their best to find the perfect match between my profile and the available vacancies. They even gave brilliant suggestions on how to get prepared for the interview. They fully understood my ambitions and my needs and introduced me to the company I’m actually working for. I definitively recommend Search It Recruitment since they are really good and professional at what they do. Thanks a lot guys, I will immediately come back to you in the future if needed.”
Alessio Reale - Java Developer - Candidate
"The best thing about the guys at Search It Recruitment is that they don't see placing candidates as some short term fix. They are willing to go the extra mile and take time in order to find the perfect fit for the candidate. In my case, we had some informal communication for a month or two until they came with the right position. Thanks to these guys I've found the right company for me, a company that helps me grow while also enjoying myself there."
Filip Andonovski - Full Stack Developer - Candidate

As a candidate, my needs and ambitions were well heard and well understood without hassle. A definite recommendation from my side."

Stanislav Maryenko - Tester - Candidate
"You will often see IT recruiters looking for keywords related to technology on cv's. Some will try to check whether you have some other skills the company is actually looking for. But not that often, you will find IT recruiters like Ernst, who will first find you for your cv (and really understand what exactly kind of role you are able and most important, willing, to play), then understand and get to know you for your previous experiences, your future plans, what you like and dislike, to finally present you a few options and let you choose which ones you would like to be put forward to. You will never be able to tell whether Search It Recruitment is the best one, but you will definitely be able to tell that they are really good and professional at what they do. Thanks Search It, sincerely."
Demetrio Alves - .NET Developer - Candidate
"Joost and Ernst aren't recruiters, they're humans that make people happy through matching needs and strength. They listen and get to know you from the very first minute. Same with the companies and positions they handle, I guess, because the first option I was proposed was definitely the best match for both (though they had more positions for me). I had many more options and offers, but the really nailed it. Goes without saying that thery're always there to help you with anything you might need. In short, just two words: THANK YOU!"
Pablo Lopetegi - Senior Front-End Developer - Candidate
"Finally a recruiter that understood my cv and my expectations. Thats what I though when I first talked to Search It Recruitment. Another item to highlight is their exceptional level of confidentiality and that gets out a lot of pressure from a candidate. Thanks for finding my ideal job!"
Daniel Ortega - DevOps Manager - Candidate
"Working with Search It Recruitment has been the best and smoothest process I ever encountered. Joost did immediately understand my particular skill set, driving me to the best suitable and interesting positions, always knowing in advance if I would have been a perfect fit in the company vision and DNA. Such a relief compared to the other recruiting agencies. Definitely my first recommendation."
Massimiliano Manzini - UX / UI Developer - Candidate
"I'm doing more than fine and enriching my working experience. This is purely because of you guys! You did a great job and I'm very grateful. The guys from Search It Recruitment have provided exceptional service, during the process of hiring they acted quickly and efficiently. The quality of their service I can proudly rate with 5 out of 5!"
Zakaria Butskhrikidze - .NET Developer - Candidate
"Search It Recruitment was an absolute pleasure to work with. My recruiter was engaging and incredibly reliable. Even though we were communicating across different time zones, I knew that I could call on him when I had a question and I could trust that my best interest was prioritized. He was creative in his approaches and could turn any situation into an opportunity. Search It placed me in the perfect position for my skill set, interests, and long term goals."
Keira Yeager - Sales IT - Candidate
"I have a very positive experience of working with Search It Recruitment. From the very start I was positively impressed and noticed that I'm working with really professional people.

I will definitely recommend Search It Recruitment in future."
Eduard Los - Lead .NET Developer / Architect - Candidate

Ariel Weinberger - Front-End Developer - Candidate
"Search It Recruitment are really nice guys and very trustful. They did a really good job in finding me a great assignment. What I like is that they are very interested, personal, honest, caring and enthusiastic. And it's clear they love what they do. We are working together for over a year now (February 2014) and I can truly say they found me the best assignment so far. The communication is still beyond good and they are really nice to have a chat with. Get these guys to find you a match in the working industry. They are really going to give you their best shot and won't disappoint you. Highly recommendable and reliable people!"

"I had a great recruitment experience with Search It Recruitment, the professional staff facilitate the entire process and placing the candidate’s requirement as priority."
Scott Nguyen - Director Enterprise Integration Architecture - Candidate
"I sent my cv to the recruitment agency around November 2016. As an expat, I was looking for a job in Amsterdam as soon as possible. Within 1 week they contacted me. I had an hour long interview. It wasn't a technical one. It was mostly about my goals, my expectations from the job they were trying to connect me with, what kind of technologies I would like to use, how many years of experience do I have etc. It was a pleasant, friendly talk. It was around 2 weeks after the interview and they found a match for me. A Dutch startup in the center of Amsterdam. I started the interview sessions with the company. The Search Recruitment representatives were very helpful. After each session of the interview, they kept the contact with both parties (me and the startup company) and they tried to get a feedback as soon as possible in order to fasten the procedure. This was very helpful for me. Meanwhile they also gave useful advice, links about rent searching. They answered really fast to my emails, questions. I was invited to a personal interview at the startup in December. I was late, my airplane couldn't land because of the foggy weather. The Search Recruitment It helped me out, a representative waited for me at the Central Station with a car. So they helped me to get there faster. I had a nice interview at the startup. Second day they sent me a nice offer. They also helped me with the rent (but this was just a coincidence, I guess it is not their duty to get rent contracts for the candidates). A representative's friend just moved out from the old rent. They helped me to contact the owner of the rent directly. I had a Skipe interview with the owner and I got the rent. This is how I started the work in January 2017 at my new job, living in a new rent, 10 minutes from the city center, in a new country. I couldn't achieve all of these without the recruitment agency. Many thanks!"
Madalina Otvos - Software Engineer - Candidate
""Dankzij Search It Recruitment heb ik nu een super leuke baan die echt bij me past. Dankzij de betrokkenheid en vakkundigheid van Ernst Jan kon hij een goed matchende werkgever voor mij aanwijzen. Binnen een week kon ik al op gesprek en ben ik ook aangenomen. Super snel en doeltreffend!""
Danny Cornelia - Java Developer - Candidate
"Search It Recruitment heeft echt de tijd genomen om mij te leren kennen en wat mijn ambities zijn. Ze hebben mij een aantal functies voorgesteld die bij zowel mijn profiel als mijn persoonlijkheid passen. Search It Recruitment is anders dan de meeste IT Recruiters. Het gaat bij hen om kwaliteit in plaats van kwantiteit."
Loic Otten - .NET Developer - Candidate
"Ik ben ontzettend blij en tevreden met de service van Search It Recruitment. Communicatie is uitstekend. Ze geven je alle informatie die je nodig hebt, en gaan meteen aan de slag. Via Search It Recruitment ben ik aangenomen bij Qelp als Junior Front-End Developer, een baan die perfect aansluit bij wat ik wilde gaan doen. Ze hebben goed gekeken naar mijn cv en gezocht naar wat bij mij past."
Yusuf Burhan Eskin - Front-End Developer - Candidate
"Ik werd aan Search It Recruitment gekoppeld door een bedrijf waar ik (helaas) net afgewezen was. De eigenaar wist wel een bedrijf waar ik misschien beter tot mijn recht kwam. De volgende dag al had ik daar een gesprek, na eerst een hele poos met Joost aan de telefoon te hebben gehangen. Na dat eerste gesprek volgde al heel snel een tweede gesprek en was ik aangenomen. Allemaal in een week tijd. Na ieder gesprek belde Joost mij en de 'tegenpartij' meteen op om te vragen hoe het ging. Ook om het tweede gesprek nog effectiever te maken. Ik heb veel gehad aan de tips en adviezen en coachende gesprekken met Joost. Het stelde me gerust om iemand achter me te hebben staan die niet alleen maar zo snel mogelijk mij wilde wegzetten zonder te kijken of het wel past. Search It Recruitment benadert het hele traject van kandidaten koppelen aan een juiste baan en bedrijf heel netjes, persoonlijk en enthousiast. Inmiddels heb ik een vast contract en ben ik nog steeds erg blij met mijn baan."
Annelies Verhelst - Content Manager - Candidate
"Toen ik op zoek was naar een nieuwe baan ben ik door verschillende recruiters benaderd. Voor mij sprong Search It Recruitment er uit door hun persoonlijke benadering. Joost van der Laan vroeg meteen even door en hielp me mijn ervaring concreter te maken. Search It Recruitment heeft direct contact met interessante werkgevers en maakt daarbij ook een inschatting of er qua persoonlijkheid een match is tussen de kandidaat en de organisatie. Ik kreeg op die manier verschillende interessante mogelijkheden; zowel wat betreft perspectief als niveau. Uiteindelijk heb ik voor het CBS gekozen en zal daar per 1 juni beginnen. Ik zou iedereen die op zoek is naar een nieuwe uitdaging absoluut aanraden om contact op te nemen met Search It Recruitment."
David Kloet - .NET Developer - Candidate
"Search It Recruitment was het eerste bureau waarmee ik contact had voordat ik besloot om naar Nederland te komen voor werk. Zij waren tevens de enige partij waar ik contact mee heb gehad. Ze verlenen op hoog niveau service en zijn tegelijkertijd transparant en eerlijk, iets wat erg verfrissend werkt. Ik werd geïntroduceerd bij een bedrijf en had direct een match. Ik ben erg dankbaar voor de hulp en vind het erg leuk dat ik kennis heb mogen maken met Ernst, een geweldige man."
Dina Youssef - Mobile Developer - Candidate
"Vanaf het eerste moment realiseerde ik me al dat de werkwijze van Joost en Ernst anders was dan wat ik tot nu toe had gezien. Hun doel is om de perfecte match tussen bedrijf en kandidaat te vinden. Zij vinden het salaris of de naam van het bedrijf niet het allerbelangrijkste. Het project en het team, daar moet je vooral in passen. Omdat ze klanten erg goed kennen en ze zich ook echt verdiepen in de klant, kunnen ze hun vacatures goed toelichten. Omdat ze bij al hun klanten op bezoek gaan weten ze heel goed de sfeer en cultuur over te brengen. Nog belangrijker, is dat ze zich goed kunnen inleven in de kandidaat die vanuit het buitenland naar Nederland verhuist als kennismigrant. Ze hebben mij erg veel informatie en advies gegeven."
Santiago Pan Carneiro - Mobile Developer - Candidate
"Those guys are like family to me now. They not only landed me an excellent opportunity in Amsterdam but they also were VERY professional and friendly throughout the entire process. All doubts I had were promptly dismissed by them. They are a recruiting agency that really believes in you and don't just see you as a way for them to get their bonus. If you are in those guys' hands and they said they will get something nice to you, STICK WITH THEM. Forget any other recruiters, they are the ones that will land you a great position in the IT field in the Netherlands.
If someday I decide to return to the job market, they will be the first agency I'll check with!"
Tiago César Oliveira - Senior .NET Software Engineer - Candidate
"Fijne club om mee te werken. Eerlijk en to-the-point. Fijn om goed ge-matched te worden."
Alexander Nagtegaal - Ruby on Rails Developer - Candidate
"Volhardend, kritisch, eerlijk en daadkrachtig. En nu heb ik (al) een nieuwe baan! Top gedaan. Ik beveel jullie van harte en met groot plezier aan."
Remko Nankoe - Product Owner - Candidate
"I can honestly say that I've had only positive experience with Search It Recruitment. All of the people that I was in contact with, during my job application procedure, were very kind and more than happy to help with anything I needed. They tried to find the best match for me, even though I wanted to continue my career in a field in which I do not have any professional experience. I believe that is a point in which most recruiters would give you a "No". Instead, they provided guidance trough the whole hiring process and were on top of things at every moment. They gave me a feeling that there was someone having my back and that I was not alone in it, for sure. It was very refreshing working with them and I would definitely recommend. Forever grateful."
Lana Hajro - Java Developer - Candidate
"Prettig samengewerkt met Search It. In tegenstelling tot veel andere recruiters, kwamen ze meteen met een concrete positie, afgestemd op mijn achtergrond en wensen. Het hele proces verliep strak en professioneel. Ze zijn betrouwbaar, doen wat ze beloven."
