The Industry Speaks

My team has retained IQ Workforce for a series of web & marketing analytics searches. We needed to fill some key positions quickly, and have found IQ to be responsive, accessible and flexible. We have since referred them to both internal and external colleagues and have reason to believe that our partnership will continue to be productive well into the future.

“Simply put, for companies and individuals looking for workers and work in the web analytics sector, Corry Prohens is “the man.” Corry is connected in a way that I barely understand and more and more anytime I recommend to a company or job seeker to “call Corry” they respond with “Oh, we already talked …” Perhaps more importantly, Corry demonstrates great vision for the work he does. Not content to simply make money placing people, Mr. Prohens has directed IQ Workforce to participate in the web analytics community through his blog, his research, and his attendance and sponsorship of great events like Web Analytics Wednesday and the Marketing Optimization Summit. Next time I’m looking for a job, I will call Corry first without hesitation.

If you are looking for a recruiter in the web analytics space you need to talk to IQ Workforce.

IQ Workforce recruited me on behalf of my current employer, TradeKing. They did a thorough job matching my background, interests and goals to the requirement. They were always available to take calls and e-mails — even early in the process. They brought unusual value to both the company and me through honest and timely feedback. I recommend IQ Workforce to hiring managers and candidates alike.

I have known Corry for years and believe him to be one of the most talented, dedicated, and connected recruiters in the analytics space. Corry’s team at IQ Workforce placed a large group of global web analysts into my Services businesses at Nokia. No other recruiting firm in the digital analytics space could have delivered the way IQ Workforce was able to. When they decided to put the full power of their network, their brand and their knowledge of the space to work, we filled fourteen tough roles together in less than a year, spanning New York, Dallas, San Francisco, Bristol (UK), Frankfurt and Helsinki. If you are not on their radar, I would recommend starting a conversation with someone on their team soon.”

- Greg Dowling
Vice President of Mobile Strategy and Measurement – Semphonic

In our industry we have a lot of bright people full of passion so it can be difficult at times to find the classic on a shelf full of novels which is what Corry is.

From the first time I worked with Corry I was impressed not only with his dedication to my own objectives but his integrity in executing while working within a variety of scenarios.

Corry has a deep understanding of the Digital Measurement space and coupled with a passion for providing first rate talent and his ability to understand the needs of each client he works with at an individual level and it quickly becomes apparent why we don’t go anywhere else for our recruiting needs.

Whether you are an individual contributor / contractor looking for the right advocate and interface into the community or a company looking for the best talent in the industry your need look no farther than Corry and the IQ Workforce team.

- Matthew Gellis
Managing Director at Keystone Solutions

Corry is my go-to guy for analytics, search and other highly skilled web contractors. He understands this field, delivers qualified people fast and has a lot of integrity. Finding good people for this kind of work can be a daunting problem, and Corry will work with you to find a great solution.

- Beth Dickinson
Marketing Consultant – Technology Forecasters Inc.

Sadly, I very rarely take time out of my day to speak on behalf of my colleagues. But here’s the exception. Matt’s sheer knowledge of both people and my industry are beyond reproach. He’s been a pleasure to work with as advisor and trusted confidante. To him, people matter. Matt is wise in a business that drives up salaries and casually places ‘talent’ that simply does not match. He is a man of integrity with a ideas that simply calm situations. He’s the truth. Cheers, Matt.

- Ross Jenkins
Head of Analytics/Group Lead – Rapp Collins

Corry is the only recruiter I have come across who is knowledgeable about the Web Analytics industry. He is very well connected in the industry and knows what he is doing.

I really like that Corry does his thorough research and doesn’t waste your time by presenting jobs that don’t fit your requirements.

If you are looking for a job or have any open positions to fill in Web Analytics then he is your guy.

On top of his recruiting skills he is a GREAT guy too.

- Anil Batra
VP Business Consulting, North America – iJento

From our first conversation to the moment I accepted a job offer, IQ Workforce listened carefully, answered clearly, and represented their services honestly. I never felt pressured, and always knew I could speak to them candidly and confidentially. I have already referred a former manager to IQ Workforce, and would happily recommend them to others.

- Michael Horn
SVP / Director, Decision Sciences – Universal McCann

Corry doesn’t fit the mold of a standard recruiter, so I hate even using that word to describe him. I’ve worked with many recruiters throughout my career and Corry stands head and shoulders above the best I’ve ever worked with. He has transformed himself into an expert in the spaces which he operates. Not only is he an expert but he has become part of the community, attending conferences, engaging in conversations on social channels, and contributing high value content.

If I’m looking to secure top talent within the digital measurement space, there is no reason for me to call on anyone other than Corry to help me fill my needs.

If you are looking to find top talent for your company, I have no reservations recommending Corry for the job.

- Thomas Desmond
Chief Growth Officer – TradeKing

I was hired to start up a new web analytics team and I needed to hit the ground running. I called and asked IQ Workforce to help me staff this new team fast and requested highly skilled, experienced candidates for contract-to-hire positions. This was a rather tall order given the limited analytics talent pool in the Midwest.

Matt didn’t hesitate. He began sending solid candidates my direction immediately. We are now in the process of transitioning the selected candidates to permanent employees. Matt helped me put a productive team together rapidly.

There are few recruiters in the industry that can spot talent like Matt. I couldn’t be more pleased with the quality of candidates he sent my direction and the sense of urgency he demonstrated on my behalf. Matt is first on my call list for analytics, Usability and SEO/SEM talent!
