Technology fads come and go, but one thing that doesn’t change is the human relationship. Selecting and placing the right talent into the right job can’t be completely automated. This process requires trust, insight, and commitment. A great talent isn’t a commodity and placing great people in great companies requires a special human touch.
With that insight, Syntagma was launched as a company that matches talent to position, so that everyone involved wins, and wins efficiently and painlessly. We view ourselves as business partners – not as a vendor and certainly not as ‘Headhunters.’ It’s not magic: It’s just hard work and a true understanding of the scope of work, corporate culture, and all other variables that you deem important. Equally important is our ability and track record of matching the career goals of our candidates with available opportunities. In doing so, we ensure long-term relationships with the very best talent in the marketplace.
Although there is a large number of active recruiting agencies out there, I have found none as focused on delivering quality candidates as Rachel Howell of Syntagma. She is focused on delivering the right (pre-screened) candidates for the right position at the right compensation level/model each and every time we engage. Her knowledge and experience working in the financial services industry are second to none. She’s well versed, well connected and can fill positions of any level. I am thankful for the partnership that we have developed.
Working with Syntagma Group / Topfolio has been a pleasure. They are an amazing team to work with! I was recruited as a Graphic Designer with such professional creative care. Everyone on the team is very helpful, everything from onboarding to preparing for an interview, to accepting an opportunity, was easy with my best interest at heart. Thank you Syntagma Group / Topfolio, you made me feel like family when I needed it most – especially when I needed it most.
I’ve worked with Lou on multiple opportunities over my career. Where many recruiters know little if anything about the scope of work or company they are recruiting for, Lou has always represented all pertinent information and has taken the time to ensure that the opportunity and information he is representing fits into my career plan. He is trustworthy, open and always honest. He is an expert on the Boston marketplace having worked in it for the better part of 30 years. I value Lou as a career counselor … not just a recruiter looking for his/her next fee and would highly recommend him to any technologist looking for sound advice and proper representation in his/her next job search.
Lou helped give me an understanding of the IT marketplace in Boston and also gave me insightful tips on my career along the way, which saved me lots of time by focusing my efforts in the right areas. I feel like my career has grown, not only from Lou’s help in the hiring process but also from his mentoring me in the areas of recruiting and job placement.
I was a little hesitant to join a temp agency but I’m so glad I did! The onboard process was easy. I went on an interview for freelance work with the possibility of being hired full time at a later date. My overall experience with the Syntagma Group was great. The staff is very friendly, professional, and responsive. Chris Miller, my recruiter, was very attentive; and talking to him was like talking to someone I knew for a very long time. I got the job and highly recommend this agency.
