Positions available in Los Angeles County, Orange County, Riverside County, San Bernadino, Ventura and San Diego Counties along with Northern California and some requirements throughout the USA as well.

The job market has improved, but companies are still being frugal and requiring more diverse skills when they do hire.  The reality is currently there are still very few openings in the IBM i – RPG sector, and there are too many candidates available and competing for those jobs.  But as companies get very selective about wanting more skill sets, we are hard pressed to find all of the skills the client is looking for. We typically have filled/covered every opening within 24 to 48 hours. In this market it is critical for us to have your resume ready to go (edited, emphasis of related job skills, Skills Matrix and spell-checked) so that we can act quickly to get your resume to a client first. Your complete address must be on your resume and it helps to know your current or last salary.

Current or recently filled  Contract and Permanent Requirements !!!   

Why list our recently filled requirements? We want you to know the kinds of requirements that we have seen during the last 12 months. Yes we place RPG Developers and System i Infrastructure people, but we also get requirements for Visual Basic.Net, C#.Net, PHP, Networking experts, Business Analysts, Sharepoint developers, EDI specialists, even Excel and Access programmers.  But Unless we have your current resume and skills details in our database, you will not hear about that perfect match because we did not know about you or that you were looking.

Due to urgency of getting resumes out to new jobs as soon as possible, many jobs never make it to getting updated on our web site. When we get a new job opening, we immediately go to our most recent resumes because we know those people are available. The best advice is for you to drop us an email every once in a while to let us know you are still active and update us with any changes in your goals, availability or new skills you may have added.  Seeing your email updates serves as a constant reminder that you are out there waiting for that “right opportunity.”
