At Advantage Tech, our mission transcends filling job openings. Our goal is to create lasting relationships that benefit both candidate and employer. For job seekers, we present opportunities for growth and professional development. For employers, we bring that missing piece of the puzzle, a candidate who remains an asset to the organization over the long run.
Our staffing roots run deep and originate from a unique perspective. Our founder, Andrew Marquardt, was a human resources attorney in the early 1990s. His clients were required to provide evidence they were attempting to find employment, to lessen their job loss claims. Mr. Marquardt and his clients scoured job opportunities to show every effort was being made to replace lost income. In essence, he was acting as a recruiter. The real “ah ha” moment came when he saw how happy people were to find new jobs, happily close their cases and move on to better chapters in their lives. This shift from litigation to landing jobs, with the industry experience of Mr. O’Brien, was the seed of Advantage Tech.
With his hands-on human resources and legal background, Mr. Marquardt founded a staffing firm in the mid-1990s with his brother-in-law, David O’Brien. A veteran of the IT staffing industry, Mr. O’Brien has been instrumental in our success. For over 25 years, Advantage Tech has been filling thousands of jobs all over the United States and abroad. Mr. Marquardt continues to act as CEO and General Counsel, Mr. O’Brien is the President and COO.
