Can anyone recommend a recruiting agency or a specific person in the Chicago land area that specializes in IT recruiting? I have gone through a few with mixed results. SRI in Schaumburg has been the most professional so far. I've noticed some of these places seem like im dealing with a used car salesman. Everything sounds great and then I never hear from them again or they offer completely opposite related opportunity. Luckily I am currently employed so there is no immediate rush.

I mostly want to be in a larger company with room to grow. I'm not looking for any design/coding. Mostly admin, but I would settle with help desk if there is room to grow. Any assistant role would be ideal as well. I have a long history of troubleshooting.

What industry are you in? Thats almost more important than just wanting to work in IT. Medical IT is banging right now.

I've got an associates with an a+ cert. I'm more troubleshooting/installation but I really want to expand to a more set role that I can make a career out of. Most of my work exerpience has been focused on repair.

Well if you can get a job in healthcare IT do it. So much potential to move up and grow. Even if you're hired in as a reboot monkey running around fixing jammed printers you'd be suprised how much there is to learn in healthcare process. Good money in it too.

Send me your resume, we're looking for two somewhat high level techs.

Also, I used TekSystems and I liked them a lot. I can give you the information for the recruiter that placed me if you're interested.

My IT company is hiring, we have 5 positions open right now. If your interested shoot me your resume.

To answer your question on recruiters, As mentioned Tek Systems is a good one I have dealt with them for several years.

Robert Half is another, they aren't the best but they are a large company and are pretty quick about finding positions for employees. Beware this place has both recruitment, temp to hire as well as short term contract work. Be very clear what your looking for.

Aside from those two there are many smaller recruitment firms, if you can trust your network on LinkedIn posting an update with the same question will catch recruiters flags and contact you.

are you on linkedin? they seem pretty good at finding you on there...
This.

And DICE.

Sometimes they call me at my work, even thought I'm not currently officially looking. But there is no shortage of contact from recruiters. Most of the time the requirements don't match up very well, but they've found some gems for me for sure.
