This marks the first time since 2017 for the recruiting/consulting firm to make both lists.
CHICAGO, Illinois – (June 15, 2020)— Brilliant®, an award-winning direct-hire, contract and consulting practice specializing in accounting, finance and technology, was named one of America’s Best Professional Recruiting Firms and one of America’s Best Executive Recruiting Firms in 2020 by Forbes.
This is the fourth 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—coming in at No. 21 out of 250 firms.
This is Brilliant’s second appearance on Forbes America’s Best Executive Recruiting Firms list—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 fourth consecutive year and to return to the Best Executive Recruiting Firms list. We know how much the corporate landscape is evolving and it is not lost on us that the labor market has been deeply affected by the recent global crisis. We hope to continue to positively impact the lives of our candidates and the companies we serve for the long haul and are here to continue to do what we do best.”
To determine the lists, Forbes partnered with market research firm, Statista, to survey tens of thousands of external recruiters, HR managers, hiring managers and candidates to name and nominate up to 10 recruiting firms and subsequently rate them in several dimensions on a scale of 1 (very satisfied) to 6 (not satisfied at all). In total, there were 18,000 nominations.
