  • “The Carrera Agency stood out because they really cared about placing me for a long-term engagement. They had a personal touch and successfully found a position that was a perfect match for my experience and career objectives. Additionally, I had to relocate my family from Canada to San Diego, an added challenge that Carrera helped me with throughout the entire process. I’m very grateful to The Carrera Agency for finding this position and assisting in my family’s transition to San Diego.”

    Chris Allensworth, Sr. Project Manager
  • “I’ve been with The Carrera Agency for more than a year now and my experience has been extremely positive. The Talent Managers take time to meet the consultants in person to discuss the status of the projects and they have great standing relationships with their clients. I am soon going to be employed at one of their clients and I couldn’t have asked for more support from the team at Carrera during this transition period. Many thanks, Carrera!”

    Sashi Sabnavis, Oracle Applications Consultant
  • “When The Carrera Agency first contacted me, I was presented with a consulting opportunity I may not have considered without their encouragement. Although I was initially hesitant to apply, It turned out I did have the skills the company needed and the entire experience turned out great. When the engagement approached its end, I was converted to a full time employee — I’m happy to say, I love my work.”

    Andrea Marshall, Manager, Document Control
  • “It’s not hard to find a gig.  What’s a challenge is to find an engagement that fits, where you can make a difference, and be of real value.  Carrera helped me find just such a gig.”

  • “The Carrera Agency has been a great partner to DJO Global.  After we have identified new technology that can create value, we are always anxious to ramp up project teams quickly.  Barb Munro and her team have done a great job of understanding our needs and bringing us a qualified project team quickly.  A recent example involved some work we decided to do around developing solutions on the Force.com platform along with integrated native mobile applications.  Carrera’s network and market knowledge across a wide breadth of technologies allows us to go from concept to value much more quickly than we could on our own.”

    Chris Shen, Former CIO, DJO Global
  • “When seeking a scarce technology skill set, Barbara Munro has been our “go-to” person for finding hard-to-find talent.  She has her fingers on the pulse of San Diego, with contacts deep and wide throughout the life sciences community.  And The Carrera Agency has been a cost effective and flexible partner for us.  Barbara is extremely responsive and always a pleasure to do business with.”

    Frank Lacagnina, CIO, ResMed

    Neal Clark, Sr. Software Engineer

    Jason Clauson
  • “I’ve had a great relationship with all of the staff at Carrera for the past two years!  They are such pleasant and professional folks to work with that I’m a little sad to be leaving for a full time opportunity.

    Andrew Rahman, Field Integration Technologist
  • “The Carrera Agency stands out above any other agency with whom I have ever worked, because of the genuine interest they took in me, as a person. Gayle and Morgen went above and beyond to ensure that I felt important through all employment phases, even when it didn’t immediately benefit them. I am forever grateful for their help in placing me and taking care of me. I feel like our relationship is more like friends or family now, rather than employer/employee.

As an IT Executive, I have had their support for management and professional training, consulting and also interim software engineering consulting support. I have recommended this team to several other CIO’s in the Orange County / San Diego area for the last 10 years.”

    Bob Houghton, Southwest CIO-BDE, NetApp, Inc.
  • “As a local firm, we are always trying to help our Clients to the best of our ability, with heavy demands and a constrained resource market, we sometimes need to look to partners for talent and when we do, we turn to Carrera because they are simply the best.. period.  They treat our Clients as well as we do.  And their resources are of a caliber that we cannot get thru other agencies.  Over my 10yr relationship with Carrera, they have been a solid partner, and stood behind their commitments 100% of the time..and that’s very rare in this space.”
