Capstone is a privately held, certified 100% Women-Owned (WBE) staffing firm owned by Cynthia Reuter. We provide expertise to commercial companies and governmental entities nationwide. An award-winning firm (San Francisco Business Times, INC. Magazine’s List of the Fastest Growing American Companies, Staffing Industry Analysts/SIA), our quality methodology differentiates us from other firms and is responsible for our growth. We provide temporary consulting expertise, staff augmentation (contractors), contract-to-hire, payroll servicing, and full-time recruiting (FTE). Our industry knowledge spans professional, technical, operational, and strategic roles in Information Technology (IT) and STEM professions.
Our quality methodology is rooted in process. Each consultant search is tailored to our client’s desired outcome. We do a candidate two-pass screening, then summarize our assessment of the candidate’s relevant experience into a summary. This summary is included at the top of each candidate resume, minimizing screening time and assisting the hiring manager’s decision of whom to interview. Clients attest that our summary makes the hiring process more productive, less time consuming, and increases hiring of the best qualified candidate.
Capstone’s mission is to provide the highest quality staffing and consulting expertise at reasonable rates. Our values are: transparency, integrity, and to exceed client expectations. Our seasoned staff consists of former technology and STEM professionals. We are straight forward in our work. We listen to our clients with the desire to understand their current state, challenges, expectations, and anticipated outcomes, then find the expert – whether for professional, strategy, technology, or operational roles.
In 2017 Capstone launches STEMCompass, a platform for students interested in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) fields. Through our innovative, patent-pending network graph navigation feature, students from high school through PhD can explore, discover, and view employers’ opportunities, based on their interests and preferences. They can save, share, like, and apply to these opportunities, as well as utilize the employer’s qualifications to customize their degree, internship, and project work experience during school. STEMCompass provides counselors, teachers, mentors, educators, and parents with a meaningful and much needed tool to educate and advise students on their future STEM careers, and the employer’s required qualifications to successfully get hired by their chosen employer. Employers can connect directly to the Students interested in their opportunities, thus creating a large, future talent pool for internships and entry-level opportunities.
