Information technology jobs are starting to become the biggest employment sector in the US, and the IT field is very diverse both in job candidates and talent recruiters. Diversant, LLC is a company that’s helped IT job candidates find employment while saving the cost for various companies looking for those candidates. Currently, it is the largest African American owned IT Staffing firm and is certified as a Minority Business Enterprise. Diversant LLC is run by CEO Gene Waddy and Executive Principal John Goullet. Goullet has seen a lot of changing trends in the workforce, and he’s helped Diversant tackle the challenges of tomorrow’s workforce.
Goullet spent years as an IT consultant himself. He’s from New York and got his bachelor’s degree at Ursinus College, and went to work for several major IT companies including the Computer Sciences Corporation, 3D Information Services, TSR Consultants and Cap Gemini America. At his last place of employment, he was promoted from consultant to IT staffing account executive. In 1994, he decided to start his own IT staffing company, Info Technologies. The company became a big success pairing major clients with IT candidates, and it practically started from scratch and grew to $30 million in profits. Info Technologies even made Inc. Magazines list of fastest growing private companies twice.
In 2010, Goullet met up with Gene Waddy who also had started an IT staffing firm, and the two men found they both had similar goals in mind. They combined Info Technologies with Diversant, Inc. to form Diversant, LLC. The company started out in New Jersey, but it has since grown into many other cities in California, Texas, North Carolina, Missouri and still has plans to launch even more offices. Diversant has many initiatives, including helping former military veterans find work through its STAR program. Diversant also has given back to the community through the Harlem Business Alliance, and helped raise scholarships for college at the Marion P. Thomas charter school.
