IT/IQ recognized on Branham Top 250 list

IT/IQ Tech Recruiters is pleased to announce the seventh consecutive year of making the Branham300 Top 250 list. IT/IQ is a leader in the tech recruiting industry. We are constantly adapting our business objectives to fit the hiring trends and knowledge of emerging technologies in the tech sector. The Branham300 shows the tech sector is making a 49% progress in Canada in the last decade.

The Branham300 is a list of the top performing and growing public and private Information Communications Technology (ICT) companies that are ranked by revenue, growth and new companies to Canada’s ICT landscape. The list is based on our assessment of innovation and long-term promise. Canada’s ICT industry accounts for 3.3% of the national economy and is the fastest growing sector compared to any other sector in the Canadian economy.

IT/IQ Speaker Series: Providing value to Consultants

We launched our Consultant Speaker Series in February, and have already hosted two speakers: Amelia Morales and Ashwin Maharaj.  Amelia walked us through the items to consider when transitioning from permanent employment to consulting.  Using her experience as a Project Manager and Business Analyst, she shared key insights on what makes a successful consultant – from determining your hourly rate to taking care of your own professional development.  Amelia spoke of the importance of developing a professional brand, and living that brand every day while onsite with a client.

Ashwin Maharaj, a local accountant who specialises in working with IT consultants, joined us to speak about the benefits of incorporation.  He helped us to understand the different levels of taxation, and the importance of knowing best practices for operating a personal services business.  We had a great Q&A session when Ashwin was asked about leveraging dividends, income splitting, and responding to CRA requests.

We’re dedicated to providing value to our consultants and candidates, and would like to thank Amelia and Ashwin for making our two first sessions a success. We’re already planning the next event, and would welcome your thoughts on upcoming speakers!  Would you rather hear about Vancouver market trends, business advice, career coaching, advice from an expert in your field, or an emerging technology?

We’d love to hear from you, and look forward to seeing you at an upcoming speaker event!

Join us at the BC Tech Summit & connect with innovators

We’re looking forward to the upcoming BC Tech Summit.  This event is focused on innovation, and is always a good place to come to best understand how quickly technology is advancing. Just wait until you see the amazing speakers that are on-deck!

The “Marketplace” is a great way to get to know entrepreneurs, innovators and experts!  We hope that you’ll drop the IT/IQ booth so that we can learn how best to support you and your innovation.

See you there!
