Some people believe one of the top accomplishments you can do is start a successful business, but the best yet may be running a business of putting people in business. That is what John Goullet is doing with Diversant, LLC, a company he co-owns with Gene Waddy that specializes in IT staff recruiting. People who have just graduated from college or who have sought to enter the IT field but have struggled to find the right job can come to Diversant where they’ll be paired up with a company that fits their skills and personality. Goullet has been helping people in the IT find jobs for over 20 years.
Goullet once was a jobseeker himself who graduated from Ursinus College in Pennsylvania. He was able to make connections with people in various firms and IT solutions companies. Companies through which his IT consulting was offered include the Constell Group, TSR Consulting, the Computer Sciences Corporation and Cap Gemini America. But Goullet soon left the helpdesk and consulting profession to pursue his goal of starting a business, and he came up with the idea of recruiting IT specialists for big companies. In 1994 he brought that vision to reality when he founded Info Technologies.
Info Technologies was able to cut costs for businesses by providing hiring and recruiting services and allowing them to focus on things that mattered most. In just five years Info Technologies became one of the fastest-growing companies listed in Inc. Magazine and had built quite a base of clients who loved its services. Info Technologies became known as Diversant, LLC in 2010 when Goullet and his friend Gene Waddy decided they could take their staffing companies in a new direction by pooling resources and building a dynamic marketing company.
Over the next few years Diversant began to grow across the country and now operates in New York, California, North Carolina, Texas and a few other states. John Goullet and Waddy both want to give minorities and military members a chance to showcase their skills for big companies which is why they’ve made Diversant a part of UNITY and the STAR and NOVA programs. They’ve also given back to the community by sponsoring scholarships such as the Marion P. Thomas Charter School Foundation.
