Celebrating 30 years in 2012, Tangent Corporation is the oldest privately held search firm providing the Washington, DC metropolitan area with retained, contingency search services as well as selective temporary services. Our longevity speaks to our adaptability, deep knowledge of the market, and to the quality of our work. We also have a sister office, Tangent West, serving Denver and Vail, Colorado.
We specialize in recruiting executive administrative, professional, digital and social media positions. Our clients and contacts are both domestic and international as well as for profit and non-profit organizations. We seek, recruit and evaluate candidates who stand out among their peers. We bring to the table:
As search professionals, we know it is important to learn more information about a position than salary, hours, benefits and background required. We want to know the scope of the responsibilities, and the basic nature and style of the company. Through these efforts, we make the match between talent and opportunity a better and lasting one.
Tangent’s JMU Alumni, Furman Robinson, recently celebrated his 10 year milestone anniversary with our company. Over the past decade, Furman has been a valuable member of our team. The celebration wouldn’t have been right if he didn’t have his “Dukes” inspired flowers. Congrats Furman and here’s to 10 more years!
Recently, the Tangent team got together at Primi Piatti to celebrate the retirement of Susan Irvings. People came from far and wide to wish her well and thank her for all the time, dedication and hard work that she has put in at Tangent for almost three decades. She will truly be missed by all!
On April 1st, Tangent celebrated our own Kathleen Edquist on 15 years at Tangent.
We recently had an event to celebrate our 30th anniversary. Former Tangent employees who attended the party traveled from New Jersey, Delaware, Virginia, Massachusetts and Baltimore to reunite and reminisce. Two former employees who came had retired from Tangent after 25 years with the company. Others came who left Tangent over 10 years ago. One of our prizes went to an individual we placed in her position 27 years ago…and she’s still there. Talk about lasting impressions!
