Our Company’s History

Back in 1997, a young entrepreneur named Mark was working as an recruiter at a large corporation. Despite the long hours and hard work, he enjoyed his job and the challenges that came with it. However, he noticed that many of his colleagues were unhappy with their current jobs and were looking for better opportunities.

One day, while Mark was attending a job fair, he overheard several people discussing their frustrations with finding a suitable IT job. They complained about the lack of transparency, slow hiring processes, and limited job openings in the market. As he listened, Mark realized that there was a clear need for a better way to connect IT talent with businesses that needed them.

That’s when the idea of starting a niched IT recruiting firm struck him. He believed that he could build a company that would help bridge the gap between employers and job seekers by offering personalized services that catered to the unique needs of both parties.

With a clear vision and a burning passion for helping people find meaningful jobs, Mark took the leap and started his own IT recruiting firm. He named it Emerald Resource Group and set out to create a company that would provide unparalleled value to its clients.

In the early days, Emerald Resource Group faced several challenges. The competition from national franchise recruiting firms was tough, and it was difficult to stand out in the crowded market. But Mark was determined to succeed, and he poured all his energy into building a strong brand that would resonate with both employers and job seekers.

He invested heavily in building a strong team of recruiters who were passionate about IT and had an in-depth understanding and expertise of the IT industry. They worked tirelessly to understand the needs of their clients and candidates, and to match the right people with the right opportunities.

Slowly but surely, Emerald Resource Group began to gain traction. Their reputation for providing top-quality service spread quickly, and they began to attract a growing number of clients and candidates. Soon, they were known as one of the most reliable and trustworthy IT recruiting firms in the industry.
