Paragon Group brought us several successful candidates for 3 different positions as we built the Wind business at John Deere Renewables. I would recommend them as a quality lternative to very large firms–with the necessary experience and track record to help source good people
I have partnered with Paragon Group for two searches. Throughout the process, their communication was good. I shared the specific profile of what I was looking for and we continued to hone that as we moved through some of the candidates that were being evaluated. Overall, working with Paragon Group was a first rate experience—superior communication and the candidates were of high quality.
I have worked with Paragon Group multiple times over the years—both as a candidate and a client. I utilized their services for candidate recruiting in 2007 and 2008. They made three placements for my department. Paragon Group was consistently in touch and their communication with us was always clear. They understood our needs and performed thorough research for our candidate searches. The people they sent to us were always within the range of what we were looking for. Working with Paragon Group has been very productive; they have provided great candidates.
- Paragon Group has assisted me with searches for several positions during the last several years. In 2008, they located an electrical engineer for a managerial role in utility contract analysis, negotiation, and administration. This year they placed an individual in the position to lead our permitting and environmental affairs area reporting to me—which was a difficult position to fill in a very competitive market. My experience with Paragon has been very positive and cost effective. They do an excellent job maintaining a presence in the industry and they are very aware of current issues. They do their research in order to thoroughly understand the position that you are trying to fill. Time is not wasted thanks to their effective screening process. I would definitely recommend Paragon Group to others.I have an ongoing relationship with Paragon Group. My interaction with them is always positive; they are personable and have extensive industry knowledge.We have a good rapport. I have worked with them when I was trying to recruit quantitative-oriented people into risk management or energy quantitative analytic jobs. I really appreciated that they have substantial knowledge of what these sorts of positions require as well as a good rapport with many people with a lot of quantitative skills. They have the background necessary to understand the needs of my business; they know what they are talking about and are able to use that knowledge in a good way. They are very easy to work with and have presented very high quality candidates. I definitely recommend their services
