    In its entry on itzbig, American Venture wrote that the company is "the technology leader in online recruiting," adding that "itzbig is the first interactive network to allow working professionals to save time while safely exploring career opportunities. By focusing on quality and efficiency, the company's innovative approach matches the quiet working professional with the appropriate position at the itzbig client."

Jim McGovern, the CEO of itzbig, noted that "it is a tremendous honor to be recognized by a prestigious third party, such as American Venture. Our employees have worked very hard to create a value proposition that is unique and effective in the online recruiting industry."

That value proposition has resonated with dozens of companies in Texas where itzbig launched in 2007.

"itzbig is different in that it allows us to find high-performing employees who would otherwise not feel comfortable exploring jobs on the Internet," said Gary Thompson of Kimbia Software, Inc. "itzbig is attractive to these candidates because it offers privacy, security, and anonymity as well as the ability to see exactly how they match up against the specific job opportunity."

"We were using more traditional recruiting methods for hiring a developer when we decided to go with itzbig. Immediately, we found what we were looking for. There's no reason to go back to the old way of hiring new employees."

Joel Cheesman, one of the most widely-read bloggers on emerging recruitment issues in the world, added that itzbig had it right from the start.

"Founders Jim Hammock and Hank Stringer are industry veterans who launched almost a decade ago," said Cheesman. "Add that experience with founder Asad Khan's supply chain industry expertise and you have a winning combination that can reshape the recruiting industry."

"This is a company that has plotted its growth in a very responsible way, expanding step-by-step out of its home state and doing its best to ensure both employers and applicants have an opportunity to connect in a meaningful way. itzbig has a sound strategy and is gaining momentum with some of the tech industry's most dynamic employers."
