Why choose us?

At PDS we realize that job searching can be tough; you spend time updating your resume or work history, applying for jobs, and going to interviews.

We make it easier to get hired.

Our recruiting team is awesome! Many of us came from Corp recruiting and others from agency recruiting. We have years of experience to glean upon. Your recruiter will act as a personal career coach in your job search by providing you tips to improve your resume, individual interview preparation, getting your resume in front of the right hiring managers, and we will be your advocate in getting you the job that’s the best fit for you. Your recruiter will work with you one-on-one to go over what type of position you’re looking for, get to know your likes and dislikes about previous jobs you’ve had, and will help you make sure your resume or work history is error-free before sending it on to the hiring managers.
