I was connected with John Belich and Belich Solutions through acquaintances and could not be happier with the results.
I was in the middle of moving to a new town and looking for a new mid-level ASP.NET, front-end Software Developer position. John had multiple positions for back-end heavy or front-end dominant positions and worked with me to find the right spot for me.
The progress was almost immediate. John has thorough experience in IT placement, so right off the bat we had an in-depth, pseudo-interview which served as both a rough draft of my interview responses and a gauging of skills and knowledge for John to help determine my strengths and weaknesses, along with my job preferences that I was looking for and prioritizing them.
Having John on your side during the interview process is an amazing advantage. He is in-depth and hands-on in preparing his candidates for each and every interview, from start to finish. He used his extensive network to learn about the company and interviewers, along with the style of interview and what to watch out for. We held mock interviews and 'studied' up on certain areas we thought could possibly be touched on. He was willing to fit any amount of preparation in at any time needed, with going over things the night before, reminders and encouragement the day of, and then follow ups immediately after each interview through the process.
John was a great ambassador for me as a candidate to the company. He worked to set up all the interviews at times and dates that worked, and was very detailed in times, locations, apparel, and who to contact to ensure there was no confusion (all things I encountered issues with when dealing with other recruiters). He worked with me and the company throughout the entire process, from setting up the initial screening call, through the final details and signing of the contract.
No matter how much I can tell you how great it was to have John on my team during the interview process, the results are what really matters, and the results are what I am most happy with. I honestly feel like I've hit the jackpot with my current position, being in an up and coming company, downtown, in a position I am excelling at, while still growing and gaining knowledge. I couldn't be happier with my technical position, pay, benefits, coworkers, and location.
Even now that I'm 7 months into my new role, I still keep in touch with John and plan to for all future endeavors. I would highly recommend him to anyone either actively searching for a new position, or just looking to keep an ear to the ground. From my experience, he's an invaluable person to have on your side.
