Over the last nine years, Blue Signal has worked with hundreds of clients in various industries, successfully executing over 2,250 searches. With over 200 years of combined recruiting experience, we have found that supporting others in fulfilling their goals is the most rewarding part of the job. We love the opportunity to help others in any way we can, whether it be supporting our community, finding the perfect candidate for a role, or providing insights on a recruitment strategy. While our numbers speak for themselves, hearing those success stories and getting positive feedback from our clients is what truly makes our job worth it. Blue Signal is humbled by these testimonials we’ve received, and we appreciate each and every review.
“My company has been working with Blue Signal for several years. Since that time, Blue Signal has changed our company for the better in so many positive ways, but especially from a cultural and performance perspective. Most of our leadership team and middle management have been permanent placements from Blue Signal. As a result of their incredible initiative on our behalf, we’ve earned numerous awards for culture (e.g., Best Place to Work, Certified Great Place to Work), performance (e.g., Inc lists, NC Fast 40 mid-market companies, Financial Times Fast 500 in the Americas, Fast 50, etc.), and have been recognized as one of the leaders in our industry in innovation (e.g., Telecom Tech, Inside Towers, etc.). We wouldn’t be anywhere close to where we are today without Blue Signal.
The recruiting industry has a bad reputation. Many recruiters simply inundate clients with resumes having little to no knowledge of the position, candidate, or company and with little or no concern for either the candidate or the company. Blue Signal is completely different. They elevate long-term relationships over short-term profits for both candidates and clients, trusting that profits will eventually come. Blue Signal is disrupting an industry that is desperately in need of disruption by leading with values.
Blue Signal exhibits all the types of trust necessary to build and maintain positive relationships, which creates a virtuous ecosystem for both recruits and clients. They keep their word. They do what they say they are going to do. They have a willingness to be candid and transparent. If they make a mistake (which is rare), they will admit their mistake. They are a master of their trade. I can count on their professionalism and excellence. They don’t follow the industry crowd – they do things their own way. They are insightful, knowledgeable, and take the time to demonstrate their knowledge and desire for a positive candidate and company match. They demonstrate a genuine concern for the well-being of others. And finally, they are reliable. I can trust that they will uphold the same habits and norms of behavior repeatedly and over a long period of time.
Blue Signal is a standard-bearer for their industry. I’m confident they would be an outstanding representation for this Award for Ethics. I give them my highest recommendation."
— CEO & Founder, Top Telecommunications Company
“Matt Walsh and his team at Blue Signal did a great job helping us find a specialized engineer for a position that had been open for over a year. We had been working with other recruiters for several months before I received a referral for Matt. Although I was hesitant to work with another recruiter, he really set himself apart with his professionalism and industry knowledge. I really appreciated the fact that Matt took the time to understand what we were looking for instead of simply throwing a bunch of resumes at us. I never felt pressured to move forward with a candidate that I didn’t feel was a good fit for the role. You can tell he genuinely cares about matching the needs of both his candidate and his client. I highly recommend partnering with Matt and his team at Blue Signal for your hiring needs.”
— Engineering Manager, Electrical & Electronic Manufacturing
Blue Signal’s search process is unlike any other, using a highly targeted 12-step interview process to match the right candidate to the right opportunity. We take the time to understand the needs of the client and find candidates that exemplify those characteristics and qualifications they’re seeking. If hiring managers wanted to review hundreds of resumes, they’d just post the open role themselves. That’s why Blue Signal does so much more than collect CVs. We alleviate the burdens in our clients’ searches by presenting top talent who are vetted through our 12-step process before they reach our clients’ desks - saving them time, and money.
“Blue Signal has exceeded my every expectation in a search team. I will not introduce them to competitors, as I'm hoping they focus on new markets to fill their time and remain my secret weapon in the war for my specific unicorn talent.”
— General Manager, Chemical Manufacturer
When working with Blue Signal, clients gain access to passive talent that they may not find otherwise. Chances are, the best talent on the market is employed today - but hopefully not by your competitor. While partnering with a recruiting firm has various benefits, this access to passive job seekers is our clients’ secret weapon in finding their specific “unicorn” talent. Blue Signal recruiters have thorough training, niche industry knowledge, and strong expertise that allow them to curate a candidate pool of otherwise inaccessible talent.
“Blue Signal is a tenacious, committed partner in the recruiting process. Their drive to ensure successful, win-win placements for both clients and candidates helped accelerate our recruiting process, eased many of the burdens typically associated with recruiting efforts, and resulted in our making exceptional hires.”
— VP of HR, National Wireless Integrator
Blue Signal’s streamlined recruiting process allows clients to save time while increasing productivity and efficiency.

From start to finish, Blue Signal has our clients covered.
“Blue Signal is a true partner in the recruiting process – their job wasn’t done, until our job was done!”

Our job goes beyond a signed offer letter. We invest in your company’s success by guaranteeing results. Unlike other recruiting firms, Blue Signal’s unique search agreements come with a 12-month guarantee for new hires. If our client’s new hire leaves within their first year, we will credit them the difference to find a replacement.
“Matt and the team at Blue Signal use an incredible process to deliver outstanding results: the people they’ve helped us recruit have created tens of millions in enterprise value for our organization. I’m always on the lookout for the extremely rare opportunity to create an actual competitive advantage. I consider Matt and his team at Blue Signal one of those very infrequent differentiators. I give them my highest recommendation.”
— CEO, Telecommunications Company
At Blue Signal, we believe hiring the right people is the best way to transform a business. In fact, 63% of Blue Signal candidates are promoted within 18 months. This top talent is destined to make an impact, with an average tenure of 56 months. Blue Signal is passionate about finding candidates that produce results, adding value to our client’s company and bottom line.
“I have used Matt and Blue Signal over and over specifically because they don’t compare to other recruiters I’ve used – they are better, faster, more accurate, more effective. I have used other recruiters who seem to think that if they throw enough candidates at you, one is bound to ‘stick.’ Blue Signal filters down to truly qualified individuals BEFORE they get to me – key for my schedule and the business.”
— Senior Sales Director, Wireless Company
In such a competitive talent market, companies cannot afford to waste time looking at subpar candidates. All of our recruiters pre-screen, cross reference, and conduct initial interviews with each candidate before presenting to our client, so they know that time spent on their search is not wasted. We strive to find extraordinary candidates while taking our client’s timeline and budget into consideration, matching their urgency every time.
“I had an opportunity to work closely with Blue Signal on two different occasions. The first time, when I was going through the interviewing/hiring process with their client. The second time, when I was one of the interviewers for their client, seeking the proper candidate for the job opening. On both occasions, Blue Signal provided very close and professional assistance during the entire hiring/interviewing process.”
— Sr. Field Application Engineer, Wireless Company

I enjoy the communication and collaboration with Blue Signal and would definitely use them again.”
