About Us

Over the years, CareerSMITH has earned the respect, loyalty, and trust of our clients. CareerSMITH is large enough to have the breadth of experience and depth in resources, yet small enough to have very few conflicts. No other retained executive search firm has comparable search experience and contacts in the Engineering, Construction, Government, and Energy industries. This benefits you, our valued client, because CareerSMITH knows exactly where to find, and has access to, the most qualified candidates - candidates who have a demonstrated track record of success, and who generally are not actively seeking a career move. We execute searches with speed and confidentiality, and stay in communication with our clients and our candidates throughout the process and beyond.

Our committed client relationships enable us to gain a thorough understanding of our clients' culture and business. This understanding results in the placement of candidates who can easily assimilate into the new culture and environment. Clients who have worked with us on three or more assignments in the last eighteen months account for 70% of our business. We operate on a global basis and approximately one-third of our search work is international. Since our founding in 1997, CareerSMITH has demonstrated a relentless commitment to quality, resulting in satisfied and loyal clients.
