John Goullet And The Changing Needs In Business IT Staffing

John Goullet is a leader of the IT Staffing industry, an enterprise that is always changing due to the moving away from manual labor to automation and computer and mobile resources that more and more companies face. In fact as Goullet told Ideamensch, a business leader blog, there is a great shortage of IT workers coming out of universities and his company, Diversant is looking to change that by recruiting and encouraging more young people to pursue careers in the IT field. Diversant has not only connected people entering the IT field with companies that would fit their resume, they’ve helped prepare these candidates with appropriate resume information and interview preparation to put them in the best jobs possible to fit them.

 

John Goullet himself worked with other teams of IT engineers and developers during the early part of his career. He graduated from Ursinus College and became a consultant at several prominent tech companies including the Constell Group, TSR Consulting, the Computer Sciences Corporation and 3D Information Services. He decided to help these companies find more people with skillsets to meet their needs so he started his own company, Info Technologies to start connecting workers with clients. Info Technologies grew from a small startup to a $30 million company in just 5 years and was featured twice in Inc. Magazine as one of the nation’s fastest growing fortune 500 companies.

 

John Goullet decided he wanted to reach out to the minority communities and bring more diversity into the IT workforce, so he partnered with Gene Waddy, the founder of Diversant Inc. and together the two companies became Diversant, LLC. Diversant has made an impact in the greater New Brunswick and New York City areas through partnering with local public policy and business organizations such as the Harlem Business Alliance, the New Jersey Tech Council and PACE Monmouth. They’ve also helped veterans and foreign workers find job placements through initiatives such as the STAR and NOVA programs and visa sponsorship. Diversant also has started scholarship programs, including the Marion P Thomas charter school scholarship that has helped inner city children attend college.
