Her direct responsibility to manage staffing programs for companies including McKesson, Avery Dennison, Procter & Gamble and The Home Depot provided the foundation necessary for her to create a proprietary process to quickly find and qualify the best people to rapidly respond to customer’s needs with precise consideration for their unique environments.

We choose to fashion our business name after Melissa’s Grandparents business, “Franklin Printing” which has been thriving for over 65 years. In the spirit of legacy, we’re forever grateful and working tirelessly to always leave things in better shape than how we found them. The name Franklin is our daily reminder of this message.

Employers: Why GRC?

Gardner Resources Consulting saves you time by supporting every phase of the hiring process… from requirements definition, to interviewing to post-placement support. You can concentrate on your core responsibilities and not worry about insufficient or absent resources that could derail your projects.

We Can Help You

  • Attract and hire the right IT experts when you don’t have the time to manage the hiring process
  • Compete successfully with other companies who are vying for the same candidate
  • Keep your project on track when sudden staffing disruptions threaten to highjack progress
  • Fill a staffing void as a result of employee medical or personal leave or abrupt departure
  • Ensure that you only choose from candidates that have the Healthcare or Financial Services knowledge you need

We Match Local Talent with Local Opportunities

We only work with senior professionals who have a proven track record of success and know what it takes to excel in the challenging IT positions you need to fill.

All of Our Candidates are Local, Which Means

  • You don’t incur steep costs of additional travel and housing
  • You can hire from face-to-face interviews
  • You work with senior consultants who can ramp up faster and sustain greater focus because they are not sidetracked by the distractions associated with temporary relocation
  • You are hiring seasoned professionals who are highly motivated to keep their reputation strong in the close knit local market

We Deliver the “Best Fit” for You

We hand pick the “best few” candidates for your consideration, so you only spend your time with highly suitable candidates who best fit your position.

We don’t rely on “key word” searches to identify the right match. We utilize our extensive database which is a rich repository of in-depth information about all of our senior consultants…information that goes well beyond the resume content, and includes:

  • Thorough recent reference checks
  • Detailed notes and appraisals from previous assignments
  • Individual preferences, expectations and personality
  • Key industry experience
  • Gardner Resources Consulting in-person interview evaluation

We Commit to Your Success

Our responsibility to you does not end once the job is filled. We address and resolve any issues that emerge during the engagement. We are with you during each and every phase of the staffing process and assignment until the job is completed.

  • Project Managers
  • Business Analysts
  • Business Systems Analysts
  • Architect Developers
  • Data Warehouse Experts (Data Architects, Analysts, and Modelers)
  • Software QA Testers


We Find the Right Job for You

We won’t waste your time sending you out on interviews that simply don’t suit you. Nor will we ever pressure you into accepting an engagement just because we believe it’s a model match.

We don’t rely on “key word” searches to identify available opportunities for you. We take the time to get to know you – your individual preferences, expectations, and unique personality – so that we can present only those assignments in companies that work best for you.

We Help You Get the Job

After we find the right position for you, we shepherd you through the hiring process, helping you prepare for, land, and manage those assignments that conform to who you are and what you want.

Our clients are blue-chip companies with exciting positions, and we can help you develop a wide network of professional contacts to help advance your career.

We are Committed to Your Success

Our responsibility to you does not end once you are hired. We address and resolve any issues that emerge during the engagement. We are with you during each and every phase of the staffing process and assignment, and we stay actively involved until the job is completed.
