We’re always on the lookout for talented and highly motivated people to help us achieve our ambitious goals and to grow our fresh, dynamic, and diverse company culture.

WHY SHOULD YOU JOIN OUR TEAM?
As experts in the recruitment industry, we know precisely what separates a good career from a bad one. We’ve taken the time to create a compelling opportunity to attract the very best. After all, we can’t be the leaders in our industry without the best team!

Here’s what IT/IQ offers:

CULTURE

We’ve built a high-performing team that is thriving in an extremely competitive industry. We’re driven to outperform the competition, but we also take time to celebrate our victories together! We share drinks on Friday afternoons, celebrate each successful year with a President’s Club trip in Mexico, and cut loose every summer with an all-expenses paid Whistler weekend. We make work fun!

GROWTH

We’re expanding nationally, and IT/IQ offers an excellent vehicle for motivated and driven individuals who want to launch their career and drive it forward. IT/IQ’s high-performing environment provides the opportunity for our team members to grow and continue to pursue their personal and professional goals – and it’s important to note that we promote based on merit, not tenure.  You perform, we promote!

COMPENSATION

We’ve done our homework, and we listen to our people. Our compensation plan was developed by our entire team; not just the bigwigs. IT/IQ offers a great base salary, and a bonus structure that pays out for the entire life of each contract. And as you grow and perform, your entire compensation package (base, bonus and vacation) continues to grow with you. 

TRAINING

IT/IQ has been recognized by our competition for our industry-leading training program; there’s a reason our people are so highly sought-after in the market! From our three-month new-hire training academy to our phased development program, we provide ongoing opportunities for professional development to our entire team; newbies and veterans alike.
