Bob Dylan has passed… according to Siri.  If you asked her last week about the famed musician, she would have said he passed in 2008.  He is very much living and the mistake has since been corrected.


Siri is no longer erroneously reporting the singer songwriter’s demise, but the bug raises the issue of credibility.  What makes someone (something) credible?


Words like trustworthiness, honesty and authenticity come to mind.  At Optomi, a key contributor to the success of our technical recruiters is credibility.  This starts with being genuine and honest.  Our candidates trust our recruiters to relate honestly with them about their career objectives.  Our clients trust that our team will find the best professional and cultural match for their projects and organization.  We lead by being an informed and transparent partner on the IT market.


Being credible is what sets us apart from so much of our competition.  It’s a big reason we remain atop the list of fastest growing tech staffing firms in the U.S. (according to Staffing Industry Analysts).


Many firms in our industry scour job boards and postings, while at Optomi we pursue the passive candidate…professionals who are gainfully employed but willing to make a career move when presented a compelling reason.  Establishing credibility is key.  Optomi’s consultant retention rate for its key clients hovers around 86%.  An astounding endorsement for Optomi’s ability to place quality, culturally on-point tech talent.  It’s a testament to the trust our clients and consultants have in our company.


Optomi attracts in-demand talent with its unprecedented consultant experience.  Our consultants are treated like employees of the firm with genuine career partnership. When they start their project, they are given unique charity welcome gifts and so become part of the company’s mission to bring value to clients and the communities we have the privilege to work with.


Credibility… it’s one way Optomi is driving tomorrow’s technology with today’s optimum talent.
