“When my wife was recruited to work for Intel in AZ and we had to leave Houston, I wasn’t very optimistic about my future job prospects. Rhett came through for me and was able to find me a job in Phoenix with one of the best companies in the industry. The new position was a great fit and turned out to be the one of the best jobs of my career. Thank you, Rhett”

“The entity that should be writing this is ExxonMobil. They tasked Rhett with finding someone with extremely specialized skills and not likely to be found on the typical job websites. Rhett took up this challenge and managed to find me, that rare person with the skills they were looking for. I was one of just a handful of people around the world that possessed these skills. Even though I had never met Rhett he immediately made me feel at ease with the relationship. The end result was that I accepted the short-term position with ExxonMobil to provide a course in some very old mainframe process historian software. The customer was pleased. I was pleased. This is exactly the type of person that you wish to work with. He is relentless in trying to satisfy his customer’s needs (regardless of whether the customer is a client company or a job seeker). You can feel confident working with Rhett.”

“Rhett has followed me throughout the years and periodically chimes in to see how I am doing at my job and if I was interested in trying something new out. I have always been linked to Process Control, Automation and Special Applications for oil refineries and industrial plants. Rhett always kept in touch and placed me in companies that offered both opportunities and challenges. And he still follows me today.”

“Early in my career I was fortunate to have connected with Rhett. He had the industry knowledge and connections that enabled me to find a very satisfying and rewarding position with a control software company. His understanding of the client company’s specific needs and my interests and abilities allowed him to find a good fit for them as well as for me. I have stayed in touch and worked with Rhett over the years since and have always valued his information and advice on other opportunities. I can highly recommend him to any hiring company and candidate who need a process and controls industry-specialized and focused recruiter. Rhett is also easy to work with and a wealth of knowledge about our industry.”

“Fifteen years ago I was contacted by Rhett to fill an opening at ExxonMobil. This came at an opportune time as I was growing frustrated with the position I held at the time. Interestingly enough it turns out the EM folks read an article I had written in a technical society journal and apparently that got them interested in me. They gave Rhett that lead, he pursued it and fifteen years later I’m a process control technology lead in one of the downstream companies. Not bad for one phone call! I don’t know how many others he contacted in the search, but needless to say he responded to his customer’s need by bringing in what they wanted. This has worked out well for me too. If anything I wished he’d called sooner. Thanks, Rhett.”

“Rhett Bigham is the most effective recruiter I have had the privilege to work with. He has successfully placed me in my last and current job. After 15 years of service in south Texas, I was given the 90 day package to find another job. By coincidence, let me call it divine providence, Rhett contacted me to update his client lists. I immediately requested assistance and was placed at my newer and much better position! I call this customer service at its best. Thank you Rhett for your service and experience.”

“When I was ready to leave an automation vendor after being with them for 12 years since college, Rhett found me. He brought me a dream automation related job opening in major international oil & gas company’s central engineering group. He guided me through the entire process, starting with the telephone interview and on to the face-2-face interview and a verbal offer the same day, followed by the written offer within a week. Thanks Rhett.”



“I am happy to submit this testimonial for Rhett Bigham. Rhett has worked with me off and on for about 30 years. My skills have always been increasing and therefore different each time. Rhett has always managed to find a match with my skills and a company opening. He is exactly the kind of person that you want to work with. He is relentless in satisfying his customer’s goals. You can feel confident working with Rhett and he makes you feel at ease with the relationship.”
