Emerald Technology

Objective

Blue Coat approached Emerald for support with a 6-month project, following a positive reference from contacts at VCE

Solution

Asked to work on 14 projects globally, Emerald dedicated two full-time resources to approaching candidates screening them to Blue Coat’s requested specification

Results

Of the 52 candidates submitted by Emerald across EMEA and APAC, 41 were interviewed and ultimately, 9 successful hires were made within 5 months

What's next?

Emerald and Blue Coat continued to partner until Blue Coat was absorbed into Symantec in 2016 and began to benefit from their larger, more comprehensive internal talent acquisition function.

In the short time that I worked with Emerald, I’ve been greatly impressed by their
professionalism and drive. From the beginning, Emerald clearly explained every step along
the process in a recent job search, and did a great job matching my skills with the role. I’ve
never felt so prepared or so comfortable in a job search, and Emerald played a major role in
our mutual success.
