HR Director

Emerging Technology Firm

Blue Signal exceeded my every expectation in a search team. I will not introduce them to competitors — I’m hoping they focus on new markets and remain my secret weapon for unicorn talent.

GM Director

Industrial Technology Firm

Blue Signal understood our hiring needs extraordinarily well. Each candidate forwarded to date has been one worthy of strong consideration. Remarkable, considering I’ve spoken to some 40 to 50 Blue Signal candidates by now. Clearly, significant vetting is done up-front by Blue Signal. In the past, via other providers, I’ve been used to a “hit rate” - of below 50% for truly qualified, considerable candidates. With Blue Signal I have undeniably spent more time interviewing real candidates and less time overall in the hiring process since there’ve been no ‘wasted’ interviews – no “why am I talking to this person?”
