The staffing industry is a crowded one requiring new and different skill sets on an ongoing basis. There’s no standing still when it’s time to find that niche candidate. At Brooksource we’re always seeking new methods and reaching out to a diverse, experienced talent base. For us, it’s a question of balance – we believe that the needs of the job seeker and the company are equally important. It’s an outlook – or should we say skill set – that you won’t find in many staffing agencies.

Founded in 2000, Brooksource has seen a wide range of environments and sizes of organizations . . . starting in our own office. As a start-up in 2000, we experienced what all companies experience as they scrape for survival. As the years passed, we have evolved into a multi-state, multi-office enterprise with many changing internal needs. All of our sales people and technical recruiters have had exposure to many different staffing situations. And, most have personal experience witnessing our own internal growth and changing technology needs as our business has expanded.

We are not for everyone. We try not to be all things to all people. We don’t carry a bench of consultants. We don’t outsource projects. And we don’t take liability for deliverables. We have many partners that are built to handle these types of engagements and we are happy to staff them accordingly.

Brooksource provides equal employment opportunities (EEO) to all employees and applicants for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability or genetics.
