Career Developers, Inc. was created in 1994 by Joseph Destro on the idea that as recruitment professionals, our strength and value lie in our ability to focus and guide the hiring process in order to aid our clients in identifying the best possible candidates to fulfill their hiring needs. The idea was to make ourselves an extension of the human resource function and therefore a partner to the hiring authorities. Throughout the past 19 years, Career Developers has done just that. We have found success through a variety of methods including the building of a searchable, networked database, establishment of an internet presence through advertising and passive internet recruitment, and most importantly, referrals from past candidates and clients. We are a small agency that prides itself on building partnerships with our clients. We are able to do this by providing personal attention to the clients we serve as well as the candidates we recruit. When Career Developers, Inc. opened, our business was focused on the placement of permanent professionals in the technology marketplace. This area of the company is now known as Career Developers Technology Group (CDTG) . Over the past 19 years we have grown and diversified significantly. In 1999, we added Career Developers Solutions, Inc. (CDSI), in order to satisfy the growing consulting needs of our clients. Today, in addition to consulting services in the technology arena, CDSI also provides recruitment services for various financial and accounting positions. Most recently, as the pharmaceutical and biotechnology markets continue to explode, Career Developers Life Sciences, LLC (CDLS) was established. We look forward to our continued growth and success and to offering our quality services for many years to come.
