Jeff Snyder is quite simply the best information security recruiter working in the industry today. With 10 years of information security management experience, I've had the opportunity to work with many recruiters and placement organizations - none have had the passion and expertise for , which Jeff brings to the table when placing the right candidate in the right position, at the right time.

The healthcare market poses unique challenges for information security professionals: understanding the challenges of using technology to deliver high quality patient care; complying with expanding HIPAA and other federal regulations designed to safeguard protected health information; realizing the workflow and business needs of a healthcare organization when developing policy. Jeff understands these unique needs and works quickly to find the right fit for the organization and the candidate.

Jeff ,a , has repeatedly shown the ability, in a highly specialized and competitive market, to consistently present a list of highly qualified candidates that not only meet, but exceed expectations, leaving the organization in the enviable position of selecting the best candidate from a selection of several qualified individuals. I look forward to working with Jeff in the future when filling information security positions.

Paul, CISSP, Information Protection Officer, Healthcare

“Jeff Snyder is the recruiter of choice for Information Security Professional needs at M & T Bank.

He has proven himself to be an outstanding mentor and partner in the process.”

Matt, CISO, Banking, CISSP, CISA

“I have worked with many recruitment consultancies both personally and professionally over the past few years. The J.A. Snyder & Associates team has been one of the absolute “best of breed”, which brings me to writing this letter of recommendation. The J.A. Snyder & Associates team clearly has a major competitive advantage with their high level of customer service and market intelligence they possess, especially Mr. Jeff Snyder. It is a genuine pleasure and honor for me to recognize Jeff’s amazing abilities he demonstrated during a recent recruitment campaign. Jeff worked with me throughout the process of identifying and facilitating the next steps in my career path. For many, this is not an easy task since there are numerous priorities and a multitude of items that need to be negotiated. He always kept his goals and objectives within sight but also remained approachable and easygoing. Jeff demonstrated early in the process that he understood what the recruitment business was all about. He was well organized and almost without exception, he placed the customer first, feeling as I do that the key to good business is satisfied customers. I suppose doing well in this business is easy if you are, as he was, driven in equal measure by both quality and efficiency. In closing, let me say I have no hesitation in recommending Jeff Snyder for any future recruitment engagements. I feel confident he would be an asset to your organization and a true guide to your potential candidates. Jeff really believes in not only nurturing clients and building candidate confidences, he also extends himself as a mentor, which in today’s market is extremely rare.”

Since those years, we have both left to start our own companies and have had occasion to partner on some projects. Jeff certainly demonstrated the same level of commitment to the industry and quality that he possessed when we worked in the same office.

Jeff CISSP, ISSAP, ISSMP, C/EH, CCE, TICSA, Security+, Financial Services

This is a formal letter of recommendation for J.A. Snyder and Associates. I have known Mr. Jeff Snyder for the past decade. He recruited me once as a candidate. I have used the services of his organization ever since its inception.

Mr. Snyder worked with my staff, the Human Resources department and myself. Not only did he understand the technology infrastructure completely, he understood the type of personnel that will enhance it. He probed us until he completely understood the type of people that fits our corporate philosophy and culture. Sometimes it seems like he knows us better than ourselves.

Mr. Snyder is a relentless worker, who earns every penny of the recruitment fee. He is unconventional in his search for the right fit. He works with the candidate, and is always candid in briefing us to their strengths and weaknesses. He never hesitates to caution us about some potential shortcomings in a candidate even after he has presented a candidate. He is always trying to look after our best interest. Best of all, he is following up and giving us feedback throughout a recruitment process.
He works with both the candidate and employer to figure the best compensation package that is win-win for both parties. He is excellent in coaching and guiding both parties through this tricky yet necessary part.

Jeff's ability to understand the nuts and bolts of technology is a key factor as to why candidates trust him to find them job enrichment and employers depend on him to present the right skill set. That is the reason we continue to deal with him exclusively. He saves us valuable time and money. He usually provides very few candidates for a given opening, and we benefit from his narrow focus.

Jeff has filled Technology Management to heavy-duty application development positions for us. He continues to keep abreast of what is necessary to be successful in a particular area in technology.

He made me successful and I believe he can do the same for others in my position.

Regards,
Sam, CTO and EVP, Incentive Marketing

I recommend Jeff Snyder as a highly qualified recruiter in the field of information technology security.

As an experienced IT professional I am impressed with Jeff's understanding of the business and his attention to detail. Jeff's sincere interest in providing a win-win situation for both clients and candidates sets him apart from other recruiters.Those that work with Jeff will find that he is a trustworthy professional. During my job search campaign he often took time from his busy schedule to share information and provide feedback.

His input was instrumental in helping me to land a management position within a successful Fortune 500 company.I intend to call on Jeff in the future to help address my staffing needs. I know from experience that Jeff will focus first on understanding the job requirements and then submit only qualified candidates.

Stephen, CISSP, IT Security Manager, Manufacturing & Chemical Industry

"Jeff was simply phenomenal in helping me get my new position - my dream job actually! His advice and encouragement were absolutely right on and without him, I can't imagine I'd have even the slightest chance for this great opportunity. He's the best!"

Sharon, Information Security Analyst

Jeff first contacted me in early 2003 about a CIO opportunity. He was extremely knowledgeable about his client, apparently having worked with them over time placing other professionals there and having earned their trust and respect, and was able to provide me with very rich background and support as we considered this potential role. We worked with Jeff's client to ultimately place me into this role; and it has been the type- and caliber of professional experience that I had sought and expected. I look forward to working with Jeff again as my career progresses; my experience with Jeff gave me an appreciation for his depth of knowledge and his high integrity. I also highly recommended Jeff as a member of a special group of professionals I will seek to work with again, RAF_"

Bob, Chief Information Officer, CIO, MBA, CHIE

Judy, Executive Search Firm Owner

In most instances I feel like a "number", but this case is definitely different and it shows that you are experienced and possess excellent people skills. You didn't just look at my resume, but you were able to interpret it and understand me in the process. That I believe is paramount to effective recruiting.

Max, MBA, Information Security Product Director

In working with Jeff Snyder, I have come to realize he is different from other recruiters. He has a lot of integrity, is extremely competent and very knowledgeable about his clients in the compliance and risk management arena.

He takes the time to get to know his candidates and makes an educated determination as to whether there is an appropriate fit for his clients, rather than simply forwarding the resume and hoping for a match. I've appreciated his knowledge and insight and have recommended him to all of my colleagues as an outstanding recruiter.

During my job search, Jeff was very responsive and took the time to understand my goals, brainstorm, and provide honest feedback and candid guidance in assisting me with my effort to find the right position. Unlike other recruiters, he made a sincere effort to seek the right opportunities (advertised or not) to match my objectives and skill set. If he can put forth such an extreme level of effort for his candidates, imagine what he does for his corporate clients...

Whether I am a candidate or employer, I will certainly call upon Jeff in the future. I know he'll deliver.

Beth, Business Executive, Automotive Manufacturing

I highly recommend Jeff Snyder as a professional recruiter who gets the job done superbly. He succeeded in getting me hired for a rewarding position before numerous other recruiters even had potential jobs lined up.

In my contacts with Jeff, he responded quickly and took the time to understand the type of position that would bring me the most satisfaction. He quite evidently had done exactly the same with his clients who were looking for professional staff, because the resulting match between my management style and the local culture, and between my desired responsibilities and those of the position were extremely close. He guided me through the application and interview process, providing excellent advice every step of the way. The result was a relatively painless hiring process, with minimal delays and an extremely high level of satisfaction on both sides.
If you want a responsive, thoughtful, and extremely competent recruiter on your side, talk to Jeff. He won't steer you wrong.

Richard, Information Protection Manager, Integrated Healthcare Delivery System

I want to personally thank you for your continued assistance with recruiting high-quality staff for our company. Our most recent vacancy, IT Applications Director, was a particularly difficult position to fill. As always, you provided a well-screened candidate who was a good fit for the role. She has proven to be an excellent employee and I am very pleased the contributions she is already making.

I believe that you've placed 41 employees at Premcor (previously Clark Refining and Marketing) during the past 10 years. Congratulations on achieving that milestone. Your success with our account is a reflection of your diligence to fully understand our needs and screen candidates to match those needs. I appreciate your responsiveness and professionalism, and look forward to doing business with you in the future.

Sincerely,
Cindy, CIO, Oil Refining Industry

“I worked with Jeff in St. Louis at an IT Agency. I believe Jeff developed his strong entrepreneurial spirit there and went on to eventually open his own company. Through the years Jeff has worked extremely hard to be where he is today. I am amazed at his tenacity and strength of character to build a company not only in St. Louis but then to move to Colorado and start again. He was always extremely honest and forthright to deal with in St. Louis at Bradford and Galt. He believed in the idea that the most important thing in this business is to make sure the placement of a person at a company is the best decision for both of them. Only good will come from that kind of motivation. Jeff is a matter of fact kind of guy who spends time really thinking about what he is doing.”
