“I’ve worked with Sonja Carson for the last 23 years. I met her when she recruited me as a senior software engineer for Borland International, one of the most sought after computer software companies at the time. Since that time, I have grown in my responsibilities and career and Sonja has been an integral part of that growth. I have used Sonja’s recruiting talents to find and hire highly talented people in the industry, as well as to help me find the next opportunity when I decided to move into a new area of technology.
In addition, Sonja acted as a mentor to assist me and my companies in understanding how to attract and retain the best engineers, managers, and executives. Some things that set Sonja apart from other recruiters have been her impeccable ethics, her work with the leading edge high tech companies in the industry, her ability to reach the best people in their field, and her insightfulness and ability to distinguish between technological trends and fads. Another area in which Sonja excelled was her ability to reach out to Venture Capital principals and arrange face-to-face interactions that seemed out of reach to my little startup company at the time.”

“I’ve known Sonja personally and professionally for about 30 years. I know her to be of the highest integrity, hardworking, and personable.
Sonja has the attributes all good recruiters have – intelligence, knowledge of the industries for which they recruit, and sales skills. Beyond that, though, she is unusually empathetic, going beyond skills needed and offered and into the dynamics of the client’s situation and the candidate’s personality and motivations.
Sonja has the skills to make the match not just on objective skills and accomplishments but also on the personal “fit”.”
