The Team

Brian Soderberg

Manager, Candidate Experience

Bryan came to The Hire with an accounting degree from Bryant and after spending the first few years of his career as an accounting professional.

He changed professions and hit the ground running, being recognized as rookie of the year by one of the largest recruiting firms in the world! What prompted him to make a move was the realization that he had an opportunity to impact accountants interested in advancing their careers. Bryan takes great pride in doing what’s best for each individual and client - only putting individuals in situations that set them up to be better off than they were before.


“After hearing some horror stories about people working with recruiting firms and being placed in terrible work environments, I made it a priority to never put someone in a situation I wouldn’t put myself in.”


Individuals choose to work with Bryan because he is extremely transparent and puts their interests before his own. His accounting knowledge helps him connect better with employees and employers, allowing him to understand individual’s situations better.


“One of the most gratifying parts of being in this industry is contributing to a candidate’s career growth and success. It is very exciting to see the joy you can bring to an individual by helping them reach their full potential.”

Our Story

How The Hire Was Formed

The career landscape looks exceedingly different today than it did just a few short years ago. On the employee side, professionals seemingly change jobs—if not careers—every few years placing increased pressure on organizations to attract, develop and retain top performers. On the employer side, there are a host of new recruitment and retention challenges—from how to emerge as an employer of choice to how to successfully hire for both hard and soft skill sets to how to develop great contributors into exceptional leaders.

In fact, the only constant in the career landscape seems to be one thing… CHANGE.

The Hire was started with one goal in mind: to empower professionals and organizations to successfully navigate this cycle of change by creating winning partnerships between top performers and progressive employers. In 2017, we set out to revolutionize the recruiting landscape by placing people at the center of the engagement. We are committed to continuously seeking opportunities to develop and advance the careers of our candidates while finding the best solutions for our clients so that together they can reach meaningful growth milestones.

We have a Mission

Our mission is to help professionals and organizations navigate the only career constant in life: change.

Our Bottom Line...

How Do We Do It?

The Hire has developed a unique and tested methodology, which includes a combination of Coaching, Training and Technology.offers short- and long-term Consulting Talent Optimization Packages that go beyond the full-cycle recruiting experience to allow you to strengthen and accelerate core HR areas.

We also have an advisory board which consists of thought leaders in their industries in the areas of Marketing, HR, Finance, Legal and Business Strategy.

Our advisory board speaks loudly because we realize we don’t know everything. This team of experts helps us be better people and shape the direction of our company to ensure we are staying on track as business partners. -Erin
