Why you’ll love working with VanderHouwen!
VanderHouwen & Associates (VHA) represented me for a contract position for the last two years with Xerox. VHA is a local Portland company that does the very best at making their contractors feel as if they are part of the VHA team. VHA is not just interested in "winning the contract", all the representatives at VHA were very interested in my career goals and checked-in with me often. They didn't forget about me in the field, as many other placement firms do. Many of the other contractors at Xerox often told me how they wished VHA represented them.
Benefits and pay are competitive.
VHA specializes in more technical/engineering placement and for me being a creative marketing professional they don't have a lot of other opportunities.
Advice to Management
Keep up the good work!
I applied online. I interviewed at VanderHouwen.
I initially met with several people at Vanderhouwen's Portland office. They gave me some general advice about my resume and discussed some potential fits with a few of their clients. I was later in regular contact with one of their recruiters who really worked hard to get me opportunities within my desired pay range. She managed to get me an interview for a temporary position, and seemed likely to get me a second, but I ended up accepting a permanent position before the interview took place. Very positive experience though. Would definitely recommend, especially for job seekers that are new to the Portland area.
