Hey, I'm Aaron Freed Your Recruiting Guy

A Note from Aaron,
The Recruiting Guy

Hello there & Welcome,

My name is Aaron Freed, CEO of The Recruiting Guy. It's a true privilege to steer the ship of the world's first concierge recruitment service that operates a network of 136+ local recruiters in 68+ countries while maintaining a singular point of contact - me.

Our global reach is something I'm proud of, but it's not the numbers that get me out of bed each morning - it's the people we bring together. I've always believed in the transformative power of the right job placement; it can change lives, invigorate businesses, and even benefit whole communities. Each successful match we make is a step closer to realizing that vision. For me, the individual stories of ambition, growth, and satisfaction are the true metrics of our success. This journey started from two simple ideas: talent has no borders, and everyone deserves the chance to succeed.

It's a pleasure to see that idea come to life every day. Our clients' trust in us humbles me, whether they are employers seeking the perfect candidate or professionals eager to take the next big step in their careers. Thank you for considering us for your journey - I'm thrilled at the prospect of helping you write the next chapter in your success story and to be your next Recruiting Guy.
