Transparency--the act of being open and visible in communication and actions--is embraced by companies large and small. No more hiding behind the curtain.  We think that concept should apply to recruiting firms as well. This month, we'd like to give you an opportunity to learn more about people behind the CONEXiS monthly message, emails and phone calls you may have received over the years.  We invite you to follow the links below to learn more about us, our clients, references and more. And while you are there...Let's Connect!

Many of you have been receiving our newsletter for years; some for just the past month or two. For the past 10 years, CONEXiS has retained all resumes and we send our monthly messages as a way to provide ongoing career advice and guidance and to let you know, "We are here when you need us."

But who is the CONEXiS Staffing team really? We are a small, dedicated team of professionals who are passionate about what we do-recruiting! By offering outstanding career opportunities in the Software, Web, Engineering and Information Technology areas, as well as guiding our candidates through the hiring process, we help others to reach their career goals. Our approach is professional, yet personal. We strive to understand our clients-candidates and hiring managers-and their specific needs. In the spirit of reciprocity and transparency, we'd like to give you an opportunity to learn more about us--if you wish to do so!
