To Whom It May Concern:

I am among the many software engineers out there that receive hundreds of calls every year about “an amazing opportunity” almost everyday. I have had to job hunt every year since 2015 because of a lay off or a contract not going permanent in my field. Since those times, I have been welcoming and do my best to understand the difficulty of cold calling and trying to connect with a stranger for business purposes. I understand that when I work with a recruiter, both my success and their success are intertwined. However, whenever I work with any recruiter, I run them through my own process to make sure they are genuine. So, knowing all of those points, is why I highly recommend Jason Irving to anyone on the market.

I've known Jason since September 2014. He has set me up with some incredible opportunities to interview for and he has always been willing to give and receive feedback. His humility, honor and honesty makes him a strong ally in the realm of job hunting. He has never put forth a position that did not relate to my qualifications, tried to sell me on any facade, and has been forthcoming with the knowledge he has about my field. Over the years he has helped out many people I've known, and he still checks in regardless of my current situation.

Jason is among the first people I call when I go back on the market. There have been times I've been mistreated by other recruiters where Jason was there to pick me back up. For example, I was once told I landed a position somewhere, sent an offer letter and was told I would be getting an official starting date. All of this turned out to be a lie. He didn't have an opportunity for me at the time, but he was there to be empathetic to the situation. Recently he set up an interview with an incredible company. I went in and was incredibly impressed with this company, but they did not offer what I wanted. Jason was able to negotiate on my behalf and got the exact offer I was looking for.

As I've stated before, I receive hundreds of calls every year about potential opportunities. Sometimes it's multiple calls from the same person throughout the day that forgot we spoke only a few seconds to a few hours ago. Sometimes, it's someone who placed me somewhere, then forgot about me after the contract was up and never checked in, but then remembers me because they saw I became available on a job site or social media years after our last call. Sometimes it's someone who met me at an event and wanted to know if I'm still happy with my current employer, but then forgets I gave them a referral. Out of all these calls over the last several years (thirteen as of this writing), I still hear from Jason, because he is genuine, honest, honorable, and has some humility.

Without a doubt, I highly recommend him for staffing needs or for finding that dream role out there. He will not disappoint and I will continue to work with him for the rest of my career.

Kind Regards,

Senior Software Engineer
