About Technical Connections, Inc.:
Technical Connections is Southern California’s premier recruiting firm specializing exclusively in web, software and information technology professionals. The firm, based in Los Angeles, offers a full range of services, including retained search, contingency placement, and short- and long-term consulting.
Technical Connections was established in 1984 by Helen MacKinnon, an executive with extensive technical and managerial experience in the computer industry. The firm, which initially focused on serving clients within the software development field, today works with companies in a variety of industries. Clients range from technology start-ups to multinational giants. Technical Connections places hundreds of candidates annually.
The counselors at Technical Connections do not consider themselves “headhunters,” but rather professional consultants whose in-depth knowledge of both technology and the marketplace enables them to offer candidates and clients a rare level of strategic counsel. MacKinnon, who has Master’s degrees in both Computer Science and Business Administration from the University of Southern California, recruits her internal staff based on their interpersonal skills as well as their technical and business expertise. Unlike many recruiters and temporary placement firms that have only recently entered the technical arena, Technical Connections has always specialized in this field.
