Posted on

This is the third year in a row for the Chicago-based search and staffing firm to make the list

CHICAGO, Illinois (March 27, 2019)Brilliant™, an award-winning direct-hire, contract and consulting practice specializing in accounting, finance and information technology (IT), was just named No. 22 on Forbes 2019 list of America’s Best Professional Recruiting Firms.

This is the third consecutive year that Brilliant has made the Forbes list of Best Professional Recruiting Firms—referring to practices that focus on the permanent placement of professional and specialist positions that earn up to USD $100,000 income per year.

In 2018, Brilliant ranked No. 2 and in 2017 ranked No. 10 on the same list. Also, in 2017, Brilliant came in at No. 25 on the list of America’s Best Executive Recruitment Firms—referring to firms that specialize in permanent placement of executive positions that earn more than USD $100,000 per year.

Of the firm’s continued recognition by Forbes, Brilliant President Kathy Spearing says, “It is an honor to be recognized on Forbes list of America’s Best Professional Recruiting Firms for a third year. This is a competitive labor market with a high demand for quality talent. To be named No. 22 on a list of 250 prominent, national firms is a great feat for us and recognition that our dedication to our mission of making people’s lives better is paying off.”

To determine the list, Statista surveyed 25,000 recruiters and 5,000 job candidates and human resources managers who had worked with recruitment agencies over the last three years. Respondents were asked to nominate up to 10 recruiting firms in the executive and professional search categories. Firms could not nominate themselves and last year’s findings were considered. More than 17,000 nominations were collected, and firms with the most recommendations ranked highest.
