We are nearing the end of the year; Christmas is almost upon us and 2018 will approach almost immediately after. While we haven’t had any snow around the PGS Headquarters, it has been a blizzard of a year and we are so excited to see what 2018 has in store for us.
In 2017, we placed 202 candidates in a wide variety of aerospace roles. This is up from 186 placements in 2016. We finished the year as the #1 supplier to both Orbital ATK and the Lockheed Martin RMS channel.
In very exciting news, we recently signed a partnership with Raytheon to begin sourcing contract positions for them in 2018. We are excited to begin this partnership with Raytheon as we have worked for several years to acquire an account with them. Raytheon, founded in 1922, is a leader in defense, civil government and cyber security solutions and serves more than 80 countries. Raytheon’s tremendous, continued success in the Defense industry is inspiring, and we hope to become their #1 supplier in 2018.
In addition to our new client, we have also hired a new recruiter to join our growing PGS family, Stephen Fujiwara. Stephen is a former Navy Officer and service disabled veteran with a strong background in electronic and acoustic engineering, and has prior recruiting experience while in the Navy. We are very pleased to welcome him to the PGS family, and believe he will bring even more success in the upcoming year. While we have added a new recruiter to the team, we are still looking for more recruiters with a strong military and technical background. If you, or someone you know has such experience, please drop us a line via our contact us page.
With winter beginning its onslaught for some of us and creeping in on others, our recruiting team is starting to wind down for the year so that they can come back fresh for 2018. That being said, we would like to remind everyone that our office will be closed on Christmas Day (Monday, December 25th), New Year’s Day (Monday, January 1st) and return to business as usual January 2nd. In addition, our office will operate on a limited basis from December 26th to December 29th.
Above all else, we want to wish you and your family a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a safe, happy and fruitful new year!
