Das heisst, er versteht was ist was, und wie alles funktioniert. Er versteht was der Markt braucht, da er die Technologien versteht und kennt, und nicht nur die Bezeichnungen. Das hilft unglaublich viel, da Iwan dich als Mensch-zu-Mensch verstehen kann um dich in die beste Richtung zu stoßen. Amazing People-skills auch, immer für dich da, und sehr ehrlich und neutral (sogar wenn seine berufliche Interesse auf die Seite legen muss!
Had the oportunity to consult with Iwan on several job offers. He provided good advice for job search and salary negociation.
I've been in touch with Iwan on-and-off for years now. Iwan is what you want from your recruiter - he has good knowledge of the market, and on top of that has an actual computer science and developer background. Even though at the end I went with offer I found, Iwan still selflessly advised and helped. Besides that we had good discussion even on off-topic matters. Speaking honestly and without exaggeration, I think it's near impossible to find a better recruiter in Zurich. Thank you Iwan!
I had a great experience working with Iwan. He knows the industry well and at the same time is very honest, transparent and efficient with his communication. Therefore he quickly provided me with some good matches. He also helped me a lot with a career advice.
Working with Iwan was a great experience from A to Z. He asks the right questions, and will have a couple of good matches before you know it. He communicates extremely quickly, direct, and no-nonsense. Also, he provides coaching and support during the application process, interviews, and negotiations, which is really unique value. Highly recommended for both employers and IT jobseekers.
Iwan is the most caring recruiter that I had a privilege to work with. Iwan has a technical background, and for this reason you can expect a very good advice for your career that would keep you competitive and interesting for the Swiss market in the future. If you are changing your career path, I definitely recommend contacting Iwan to get the most out of it.
This recruiter can be recommended. What I liked the most was fast communication within 1 day, good knowledge of the market in Switzerland and deep understanding of technology.
Iwan is an amazing recruiter. He is one of the few that really understand how the IT world works, knows the technologies, can really estimate the knowledge of the candidate and has a great network of amazing companies.In addition to this, he's extremely supportive on all stages, from initial contact to salary negotiation. Highly appreciated and recommended!
The whole experience with Iwan was a pretty pleasant one. He knew what questions to ask to get the desired info and I also felt pretty comfortable talking with him so of course, everything went even smoother. The fact that he is also pretty knowledgeable on the tech side most likely had something to do with this. You feel listened and understood and not just a list of checkboxes. Sure enough, he was quick to find me interviews and also advised me on how much to ask.
Iwan is the best IT recruiter I ever worked with. What makes his approach unique to others is that he represents the sweet spot between being a professional and a laid-back person. He's an active coder as well and that makes getting into technical details as easy as he'd be your cool team mate. At the same time, he is very precise in conversations, keeps on focus on the most crucial information and cuts off unnecessary bs. I owe Ivan a completely different view on the recruitment process.
I've enjoyed the interview with Iwan very much. I really appreciated how the written and spoken interactions took place. It was nice being approached by someone with a great technical background. It will give you the sensation of being appreciated to the full length of your potential. Your persona will not be misrepresented towards a potential employer. Give him a chance and you will learn something new!
Iwan first helped me find a job in Zurich back in 2018. Although I ended up accepting an offer at a different company, he gave me plenty of useful advice, he critiqued constructively and objectively my CV as well as my overall approach to looking for a job. He approached me again at the beginning of 2020 and successfully helped me land a very good opportunity at a highly reputable company based just outside Zurich. Once again, his help, particularly with salary negotiations, was invaluable.
Iwan is an outstanding recruiter. From the first email on I knew that he is interested in knowing who i'am and what I want instead of sending me a ton of offers with a lot tech buzzwords like others do. I was pleasantly surprised that we only did communicate via email, and he never pushed to call or meet even when I replied just some words he realized that I might be short in time and adjusted the communication from his side to the same.
I've had experience of being recruited by Ivan recently. I must admit this was really a pleasant time. Ivan's approach to the recruitment process is really unique. I was happy that he really tries to stay in contact with me all the time and updates me on a daily basis. He also collected my feedback as much as possible which allowed him to even better propose further job positions for me. It was really refreshing to work with someone like Ivan and I could recommend him to anyone looking for a job
It’s rare that you come across a recruiter who actually cares about the candidate’s preferenced. I had the pleasure of working with Iwan during my search for a tech job in Switzerland. I was particularly impressed by Iwan’s ability to get me a much better offer from an employer than the initial one. It’s almost like he was a personal coach for guaranteed success in the Swiss tech industry. Anyone, who wants to work in the Swiss tech industry, would be lucky to have Iwan as their recruiter.
We stayed in touch over the course of 5/6 months looking for opportunities in the iOS development industry in Zurich. Iwan took the liberty to search and contact different companies to assess their interest in expanding their teams, which I consider to be the differentiator when comparing to other recruiters I worked with. His dedication is commendable and anyone interested in moving to Switzerland should definitely get in touch with him, you will definitely witness the difference.
Iwan presented me companies and he tested me to check carefully if I am a good fit for the desired job position. Iwan is an amazing mentor that gave me very good tips about how to successfully present myself to a company that I am applying to. Thanks to him I am able to get better salaries in better jobs with better conditions. All is about showing our best values to the firms and Iwan was who taught me how to reach that. I like his kindness to help me when I had any difficulty.
Finally a recruiter that does excellent preparation before approaching possible candidates. I never talk to recruiters because they almost never really take their time upfront to know your skills and preferences. Iwan does exactly that. He is easy going and straight forward. He only asked the important questions and still delivered perfectly matching jobs straight from the beginning. Get surprised too, I would definitely recommend him!
Bei vielen Personalern fühlt sich die Kontaktaufnahme unpersönlich an, als würden nur Schlagwörter gesucht und verglichen. Nicht bei Iwan. Man spürt sofort, dass er selbst auch Software entwickelt hat, da er ein besseres Verständnis für Skills und Bedürfnisse erlangt. Seine Kunden werden eng und leidenschaftlich begleitet. Ich erinnere mich, als er mir Tipps für einen Programmiertest gegeben hat, oder mir beim aufbessern meines CV half. Iwan kann ich definitv weiterempfehlen!
I had the opportunity to be a good fit one of his clients and I was impressed how much this position was relevant and aligned with my knowledge and experience, he clearly took the time to understand what I was looking for before presenting me some options. Iwan is very direct and honest he also helped me with resources regarding salary negotiations which I am sure will be useful not only this time but for the rest of my career.
Unlike other recruiters, Iwan helped me navigate several interview processes and advised me also on employers that weren't clients of him. With his help I got an A+ offer in a company that I really like. Iwan trained me on salary negotiation which gave me the confidence to ask (and get!) more fixed salary. If you're a jobseeker in IT, I highly recommend working with Iwan to land your next job.
