"It is great to work for a company that is open to new ideas and suggestions. We have the ability to manage our desks, create our daily schedules. The Executive Team has an open door policy, so you have support whenever you need it. Recruiters and Account Managers are constantly learning about people, technologies, companies and different industries. It is very satisfying helping people find jobs and helping companies find employees that they need. We are sales people so we are wheeling and dealing which is exciting and are rewarded by helping people find employment that suits their needs."

"I love being able to assist others in finding better job opportunities. It's so rewarding to speak to candidates during their first week of a new position with one of our clients. They are so grateful and appreciative, and it's a truly wonderful feeling. I think to myself, I actually helped them find this ideal opportunity. They are now receiving a well-deserved raise, or learning new technologies, or now in a great team environment. My hard work really paid off, and they are happy!"

"I thoroughly enjoy building relationships and helping others. I find it very rewarding helping people find better career opportunities while helping our clients hire great people. I love that in my 10 years of recruiting not one day has been the same."

"I enjoy assisting our Consultants from the beginning of their working relationship with DP Professionals to the end of their working relationship with DP Professionals. Helping someone come aboard and making the New Hire process as effortless as possible is our goal. It is rewarding to know that I’m helping someone get through a major transition in their life in starting a new job. We always try to convey to our Consultants that they are more than just another employee when they start at DPP. We will do whatever it takes to make sure that they know this while they are employed with us and after."

"I like working for the DPP team because of the overall professionalism and ability to deliver. It is a lot easier to sell a service when you are confident that you can actually provide well. "
"It’s so great to work for a company that truly cares for their employees. I have worked at DPP for 10 years and have really enjoyed growing with the company. Our experienced recruiters and knowledgeable internal support staff take the time to really get to know candidates and help them through the employment process. There is always someone available to help in any way. "
"The culture at DP Professionals is conducive to team development; that, combined with the people here makes this a great place to work. In my eight years of experience in the staff augmentation industry, it is a breath of fresh air to be in an environment where everyone is committed to the overall success of both the internal staff and the external.
I originally got into this business because it lined up with my military MOS. That said, I have grown to enjoy my work very much and find it to be both exciting and rewarding. I firmly believe that one can have no greater calling than helping great people find really great positions that both challenge their minds and increase their skill sets. Especially in an economy that has been somewhat downtrodden the last few years, it is great feeling when someone gets the position that they deserve.
Recruiting is both challenging and rewarding. I also enjoy meeting new people that have both diverse and concise skills. It is a constant reminder of how small our world really is when we speak with someone that may not necessarily have the exact skills we need, however they have a friend or family member that does. In retrospect when I find a position that lines up with that person who may not have been a fit for my previous position, I find it to be especially fulfilling to be able to revisit that person and speak to them about a position that is a perfect fit.

"I’m thankful I can say that I really do enjoy going to work every day! I can’t imagine working anywhere else. DPP has great bosses, wonderful support staff, dedicated recruiters, account managers and business development; when we all get together you can see we really are a striving towards the same goal, a successful placement – a happy ending.
What I relish the most about being a recruiter with DPP is having the ability to succeed; I can go as far as I want in this career and I’m given tools and resources as well as a staff who work very hard in support of our business. Because DPP is always growing and we are given the chance to develop our careers, I’ve had the opportunity to also step into the role of Account Manager. As an Account Manager I liaise between our clients and recruiters to make sure both the client and (indirectly though the recruiter) candidates’ needs are met. Transitioning to Account Management allows me to expand and utilize my knowledge that I’ve gained recruiting and pair that with new challenges and work in a client facing role.
If I had to say what I like about my job the most, well I guess I’m saying that I enjoy the variety and roller coaster of new things happening everyday and the outcome is always different.

"I was new to the Columbia, SC area when I started working for DPP as an Executive Assistant three years ago. DPP has given me the opportunity to grow into an Account Manager role. I now take an active part in the community and enjoy all the networking opportunities related to this position at DPP. I also get to work very closely with the recruiting and internal staff here at DPP and could not ask for a better team of people to see every day."
"I’m proud to be a part of DPP-IT team because of the solid reputation built on honesty and integrity over the years in the Columbia area by owner, Barbara Blau. We have a great team of recruiters, dedicated to doing their best to meet the needs of our client’s and applicants in a very competitive industry. I wake up every day to meet the challenge of finding the right individual to fill a particular job. We have an established, in-depth system of screening and interviewing which aids us in determining the applicant’s qualifications, aptitude and skill set for a particular position. During the past 20 years seeing the satisfaction the candidate finds in that new opportunity is the best part of all. "

"What I like most about working at DPP is the support network we have in place, for our internal employees, our consultants and our client companies. If I have an issue or question, there is a "specialist" on staff who can help me with that situation. Likewise, I think the reason our client companies are able to put their faith and trust in us is because of the support we are able to provide. It is my belief that, because of how we're structured and the levels of support we're able to offer, our client companies have the confidence to allow us to assist them with some of their most crucial staffing needs."
