Welcome to #WeAreGreenKey, where we shine a spotlight on the incredible people behind our powerhouse recruiting team.
This week, we are passing the mic to Jordan Boyd, Senior Recruiter at Green Key Information Technology (IT). After nearly half a decade of working in the industry, Boyd joined Green Key in late 2020.
Boyd focuses primarily on niche skillsets, including AWS and Azure cloud engineers, database administrators and developers, .NET and Java developers, iOS and Android developers, UI/UX designers, and project management professionals. He has placed candidates in a range of industries, including biotechnology, aerospace, defense, financial services, and government services.
What inspired you to pursue a career in recruitment?
I applied for a sales job with a staffing agency several years ago. During the interview, the hiring manager believed I had the empathy and technical knowledge to work with clients and candidates. After trying my hand at full desk recruiting, I realized I enjoyed matching people with the right job a lot more.
What sets Green Key apart from other recruiting firms?
Green Key is process-driven. We work hard to ensure our candidates are the best fit for the job, providing full transparency about the hiring process and client expectations. We are about finding the right fit for the job—not throwing any and all resumes at a job to see what sticks.
Where has Green Key provided service that is hard to match in an internal hiring team?
Green Key works with a diverse range of clients, which means our candidates have several options when it comes to entering new industries. For example, Green Key IT has previously placed candidates in roles for the U.S. government.
